NEWS: 3 FREE issues for Official Xbox Magazine Subscribers… plus access to digital versions of past issues!

imageAre you an Official Xbox Magazine subscriber?  Then you may have noticed that this month’s issue (February 2012) has something conspicuously missing. 

The DemoDVD is GONE.

At first I thought that someone had ripped off my disc as my copies always came in plastic with a DVD along side the magazine inside.  But alas, Future, the publisher, has the decided to stop shipping the DemoDVD.  After 131 discs, that’s all she wrote.  SOB!

WAIT A SECOND.  I PAID TOP DOLLAR FOR THOSE DVDS.
Yeah, they know that.  As a result, they are providing all subscribers with 3 extra issues of the magazine to compensate for not having DVD’s any more.  Yeah, I know.  Kinda weak sauce.  But at least it’s something.  And they’ve spent the money in other ways to enhance the magazine.  For example:  The paper stock used in the magazine is noticeably thicker & stronger, and print is clearer and colors more vivid.
