Yes, I go straight to my fave magazines site for the issue now, it is impossible to buy over the counter in Christchurch New Zealand now. Sad. But retailers in NZ screw the public over anyway putting high retails on issues that are actually the older (3 issue previous) issue. So easier to buy online. Although you can buy Imagine FX here still, it's the same problem.

But I digress. Looking forward to this issue for specifically MD Mini making of. Initial reviews coming through are praising this thing, saying it's the best Mini console so far.

Just want to say I loved the articles on the Mini Mega Drive, M2 and Roller Coaster Tycoon in this issue. Especially the M2 one, never knew who they were until I read this.

There's an explanation in this very thread. Darran is editor, not the person responsible for putting every copy on shop shelves. :roll:

As I explained above, we've had a major distribution issue where stock intended for North America was inadvertently delivered to UK shops, which caused all sorts of problems. I'd like to provide a meaningful update, but I'm afraid I can't. All I can say is that issues are going into stores - I can't tell you which shops are getting them when, but people are beginning to find them with stickers over the original barcodes.
