So this includes the much wanted first issue from Live Publishing?

I'm going to have to get this, I have a fair few of the back issues but having something like this too would be great (and permanently installed on my laptop).

Think how much it would cost to get all those back issues (even if they were all available) and then see how much of a good deal this is. :)

The thing is , it's a DVD in a case that costs £20 - probably costs less than £1 to manufacture - I would have thought that £9.99 was more reasonable

I don't want to sound like a miserable bastard , as I'm glad they've released it and will probably end up buying it myself , if only for the search engine - and it's good that people who missed the earlier mags can see what an improvement there's been since the buyout. And I hope that some of the contributors to the mag get their cut , as they are the reason the mag is as good as it is (although I would imagine all profits will probably go to the publisher?)

Just remember , just like emulation , it's not as good as the real thing!

I'd agree with you if there was only a years worth, but 30 issues for £20 is pretty good I suppose.

Well, I've already got every issue - I'm just a completist! :oops:

I thought it was expensive too, but I guess that's the price we have to pay for the fact that it's probably gonna get torrented to censored... *sigh*

Ordered mine now though :)
