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! :(

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.
