By the time I saw it was on sale, the website had sold out.

Damn sorry didnt realise that one sold out so quickly. In the past most of them have been available for a while, surprised this Amiga one flew off the shelves (online)

Will this bookazine be available for sale in the United States? If so, when? I purchased the Amiga bookazine at Barnes and Noble a few weeks ago, so I would assume that if they carried a bookazine about the Amiga, then they definitely would for the NES/SMS. At the same time, I expect the NES/SMS bookazine to sell out faster than the Amiga bookazine, so it would be very useful to know when it will be on sale at Barnes and Noble.

They have these on the website for sale....and there is a £2 discount code too REWARD2

Just bought mine after spotting it advertised in the current edition of the magazine, they had none in WH SMITH Victoria, but they were still selling last months issue, so maybe its not in there yet. Atleast with the voucher its only 50p more than the shops (as postage is £2.50), however I was lucky enough to find a £10 note on the ground outside WHsmith when I went to investigate stock, so mine effectively cost me 50p now whoop whoop. :D

Just bought this on the Imagine eshop with a £2.00 discount, which with shipping makes it... still more expensive than buying it from Smiths! Hooray!

Seriously, that needs looking at.

I picked this up yesterday on a whim, decent quality pages, some fun information. Not so fussed on the NES side of it as i wasn't a huge NES fan. I feel they could have been split apart and more articles written on the consoles themselves and the games each. That said not a bad release. Not sure it dereserved its £9.99 price though.

If anyone is still deciding whether to get this or not I did a little review of it on You Tube:

I just picked this up by accident in Smiths.

It would be good if these announcements were more visible, perhaps on the front page on the retrogamer site.

I couldn't resist buying this when I saw it in WHSmiths, even though I know most of the material inside has been printed previously. It's just so pretty!!

Theres a new 'remastered' version coming out soon (Amiga) which will include some more articles. Be interesting to see how much difference there is, already have the original Amiga one, do i get this new one or not ?! (Same for the Speccy/C64 one)
