Amazon has just announced that full 1 year subscriptions for Official Xbox Magazine, PlayStation: The Official Magazine, PC Gamer and Nintendo Power are just $5 each!
$5? They must be selling this at a loss or something. Anyway it'sa my gain. /ManiacalLaughter PS Yes, I said "it'sa" . . . you know . . .like Mario? . . . Don't look at me like that
No-one really reads magazines these days, that why the people who make these officials magazine have other ways to make revenue e.g inside xbox, firstplay etc.
Subscriptions are usually cheap because there is less packaging involved in comparison to buying a magazine at retail where there is more packaging (DVD cases, subscription cards, etc). At the same time, the investment is returned through advertisement. If you go to advertisers and say "our magazine has 1 million subscribers at the end of 2010" you would get better rates/more money than if it was only at 200 thousand for instance. Basically, magazine publishers can potentially gain from this, not sure about Amazon though. I'd so get one of each if this offer was valid in Canada! :(
Can't go wrong with a deal like that =)
Canada ... Always ... Get'sa the shaft
Amazon.ca fricken blows :(
Why dont you just order from the us amazon site, I am sure you could set up an account on that site but I could be wrong,
You can't ship to Canada from the .com store which is retarded because I live 20 km from the USA.
Good to hear.
its going to be a good year for ps3. just bought ps magazine
not even this little....
Grr, I got excited there for a second ;(
Got both PS and PC Mag!
PS and 360 for me ^^
so grabbing PC gamer has made the circle...complete.
I don't usually order or buy game magazines(and have not had a subscription in years to any video game magazine even though I have been gaming for at least 21 years) but at this price I am definitely going to, at least it will occupy some of my time and I like to read so no loss. I wonder why it is so cheap? It takes more money to ship all of the magazines to your door and not to mention the cost of materials for the magazines themselves than the actual $5 deal costs. This is definitely a deal that should not be passed up.
Thanks for the tip. I never would have known otherwise.
Just went to Amazon mags were $10
