Expensive back issues Why are the back issues so damned expensive? And the annual subscription is more expensive than just buying each issue as it comes out. So disappointing. Would love to subscribe is price was more reasonable. $12 year anyone?
Great Experience and Buy I am editing this review to do a complete 180 on my review. 1) I missed instructions for a key to retrieve for an offer, and articles stated that digital editions do not get promo codes. These articles were wrong. 2) Customer support for the magazine was bloody awesome, and the lady was very professional and courteous and helped me solve my issue. I only bought a single issue on an impulse buy, but next week I will DEFINITELY be subscribing.
Close... Well, they've changed the pricing scheme around quite a bit since I first checked out this mag. It's definitely much more attractive now, but but I'd still like to see the price come down for single issues. Other than that, the magazine is nice.
Best PC Magazine! Covers gaming and gaming components for your PC. To the people that are to dumb to understand its 8.99 to buy ONE issue as a NON subscriber. If you click subscribe you get each issue for only 1.99. Stop playing to many games and get educated.
Waste of money Pricing would be fine if it were readable. On my phone it is default too small to read. Zooming in just makes it blurry and unreadable. Improving the quality of the digital version needs done before I would consider a sub again.
Seriously I get that magazine companies need revenue to continue creating their publications; but charging the newsstand price for these digital issues is crazy. They actually had a digital/multimedia app for Steam a while back, that was $.99 per episode and they abandoned it after half a dozen "issues". I imagine that once they find they're getting fewer purchases than they expected, they'll quickly knock the price down or abandon this too. The silly part is, the magazine is decent and I'd happily pay a couple bucks for it. But charging me the same price as you do consumers that purchase in the store (paper, ink, production costs included), is a slap in the face. Pass. **On another note, it's probably even more ridiculous to charge people full price ($8.99) for the back issues as well. All the way back to January..... I might have grabbed a couple of them just for something to browse if they were even semi-reasonably priced.**
