Well, folks, if you want to know the reason that print is dying, it's because of that. Cheap gamers that refuse to support the products they claim to love.

Yup. Ads are what keeps costs down. I can't support this magazine's print atm because I have to cut back this month, but I still got the digital version. Once a subscription cost is available, I'll invest in that depending on the price.

If you care so much for your privacy, what are you hiding?

$17 is a lot right now, here in January when hours at work are being cut back, everyone's recovering from the spending frenzy of the December holidays and getting ready for tax season. It's a luxury to be able to splurge on the print version when there's a $5 digital version available, especially after being used to paying what, $25 for a year's subscription to a similar product? Deal with it. They are, and they're working to fix the price situation for us so that it's more reasonable.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but does anyone know if they plan to offer a PDF or at least a PC-viewable version? On the MagCloud page it looks like digital = iPad-only (I don't have one at this time). I'll probably get the first issue in print anyway, but I'd much prefer to subscribe to a PDF version.

Thanks for any info.

@Shiromikio - The digital version includes a PDF of the magazine, so it's not readable only on an iPad. And you get a free digital copy of the mag when you order a print version, so you can view it both as a PDF and a physical mag.

Exactly.

'DOH,
I had a busy weekend, and I have tomorrow off too, so it feels like Saturday.

I found out that mine has arrived, but I can't check it out right now because I'm on vacation. I already read it online, so it's not like I have an urgent need for it anyway.

Hmm, a new magazine.... I wonder if this is official from Nintendo themselves or another/new source. 1 thing that's always bugged me is that most magazine subscriptions you have to either a print/physical copy or diigtal, can't have both. I've always kinda thought that if you opt for 1, say maybe for print copy, that the other should be a freebie. I'm sure they make enough $ to do it anyway.

@DaveGX It's actually already that way: you buy the printed copy and get the digital one for free :)
And btw no, it's not an official magazine ;)

Yeah, but the way it was worded it sounds as though you can only get a digital copy of the magazine you order. What I meant was if you decide to actually subscribe and you start with the print version, would they charge you for the digital subscription as well as print? In other words, is there a way to confirm your print version subscription as a means of linking your existing subscription to a digtal 1 if you decided you want the digital subscription?

Looks cool. I already have one game magazine, but if I want a second, this would be my first choice.

Well, I decided to buy the digital version, primarily because I want to support these guys for their awesome effort and work. Unfortunately, the shipping for the printed version would be insane and probably not worthy.
Anyway, the magazine is very polished and extremely well made. If you take into account the fact that I'm in Italy so my currency is €, paying roughly €3,50 for such a magazine is a steal.
Buy it now. Please.
