Retro Gamer - Google play magazines

Post by Edwards80 » Thu Dec 13, 2012 4:31 am

Google play magazines just launched and it has Retro Gamer on there.

It works out about £1 cheaper per issue, but of course you don't get the goodness of a physical copy of the mag. It does cut out the problem of finding somewhere to store them all though :D

Anyone thinking of making the switch to digital?

A fair few friends have been buying RG from the app store on iOS and love it.

I've got a lot of the issues on PDF so i've copied those over to my gadget and read a couple of favourite issues from time to time. Quite handy having them on it, obviously you cant beat having the mag in your hands (I still subscribe to the paper one) but its very useful having digital copies as well

I've just bought an Android tablet (Toshiba Excite 13) so this looks tempting but I refuse to buy anything with DRM - what format do magazines from the Play Store come in? I have all 3 RG eMag DVDs - having sold off 20 or so old physical issues - and just copy the PDFs to my NAS and load them from there...

I've been getting mine from Zinio. £2.49 a copy, it's very nice on my Sony Tablet S. :)
