Sad to see you selling your collection

I don't think I'll ever part with mine-but then I've never kept them in great
condition (too much reading in the bath!)
For some reason ,I've kept all of my cover disks,don't know why

It will be interesting to see what you get for them.I guess now's a good time to sell considering the issue regarding binders

and people not getting issues 27 & 28.

I'm with you on never letting mine go. And on reading them in the bath.

I don't really want to sell them but when you consider that I read retro gamer, games TM , Edge, Official Nintendo Magazine and OXM most months they soon pile up.

I bought most of this collection on Ebay because I only joined around issue 21 and now i've read all the back issues I can't really keep them unless i buy a bigger house just for storing magazines.

Personally I would sell Edge and OXM before my Retro Gamer mags

Why the hell would anyone read Official Nintendo or Official xbox anyway when there's better alternatives to both. (N-Gamer and "Catching the ebola virus" respectively)

I don't have a very extensive collection of either of them and they're not worth much.

N-gamer I kind of liked but the design annoyed me, too messy and hard to read.

OXM is a bit crap but I haven't actually found any decent 360 mags.

Unfortunately I get them all confused, even IP make 2 different 360 magazines...

http://www.360magazine.co.uk/

and they're all got similar names with 360 in big letters on the front. Which one to buy ?


Actually I've just looked and realised that I have a copy of X360 magazine this month with the Test Drive Review, it's not a bad mag.

You'll notice my link goes to the massive superior "360".

Then you'd better stop reading RG and Games(TM) because he's Editor-in-chief of those too.

That must be damn hard work, editing 3 magazines!
