Tell me this...why exactly would they cut that graphic of Gotham Racing 2 on the top? It's clipped and looks totally unprofessional. Just because it has the same font face and style does not sell me on the fact that this have been clipped, chopped and screwed with.

Sorry man but I don't believe it either...

I think you don't want to believe cause the demos suck. Issue 11 did say that they would give alot of new information on PGR 2, and PDO.

Actually my comment was more directed at the fact your posting it to sell as a collectors edition or something.

I didn't list the item, somone else did. Iam just pointing out that the issue is out and someone has posted it on EBAY, I' am just listing the source of my information. Wouldn't you think that OXM would do somthing like this, because it is the Nov issue, and the Xbox came out in Nov, its a no-brainer.

My appologies then, I have no reason to NOT believe this is the actual Nov. mag.

Yet another crappy demo disc... are we ever going to get to play something thats not out THATS WORTH BLOODY PLAYING! All latest demo discs have been worthless... and the mag is crap considering the FACT that when I read it, I've already read every last bit of news they have, due to plain and simple fact that I have the internet. I have no use for a magazine with OLD news. I just want good demos... they can't offer that. In fact, I will go as far as to say that OXM is the worst offical magazine I've ever bothered with. So far, Dreamcast is the only offical mag I'd ever been totally satisfied with. At least they could bring demos out of games that hadn't been out for months, or on the demo disc a million times (i.e. the very boring Time Splitters 2). Oh well... I guess if something has to suck about Xbox I'd rather it be this than the system.

I believe u...and for all of u who say that its a crappy demo disc u may be asking to much. I too had high expectations but have come to appreciate the games which they provide. GT2K2 for instance or blitz( a game that i really wanted to play for fun without spending money)

Hmm... well since I can rent or buy these games, there's no reason to play a demo, when I can play the full game. Seriously.... Asking too much, maybe their just offering too little... Even OPSM gets better demo discs than us... if that isn't pathetic I don't know what is... If Xbox is so much better than PS2 (and it is) than why can't the Official Magazine properly represent that notion????????????

Pheh, who needs the demos? The movies they put in more than make up for their lackluster quality. I just wish they had put a Ninja Gaiden or DOA Xtreme Volleyball trailer in last month's issue. It would have gone well with their cover feature.

If you go to Gamestop you can get a XBox disc with the Ninja Gaiden and DOA Xtreme Volleyball trailers!!

I just got the mag in the mail today.Just kidding! LOL! But usually around the 20th - 22nd of the month I get the magazine like clockwork. So its probably a good assumption to say the mag is printed and ready to be distributed. We'll see. Unfortunately I have 6 months of subscription to suffer through. I have a funny feeling that I wont get all 6 issues either. I give OXM til Christmas before its demise. WOnder if I'll get a refund if that happens?...LOL!

Might be true Couger, I've already gotten 4 renew subscription letters and I've only had OXM for 4 months. Looks like they could be hurting for cash.

Personally though, I like OXM, it's got a lot of problems, but I figure it'll get better if it can stay above water.

I'm renewd till 2003 :( If OXM doesn't pickup, no OXM for me in 2003.:mad:

just to reiterate, the latest OXM UK does NOT have a demo of Splinter Cell

i get renewal forms for all my magazines many many times and months before my subscription expires and yes, even when i first get it, they offer you "special savings"....


i'm glad i didn't get the magazine just for demos then =) i enjoy sitting in a couch with a magazine and reading it, it lets me get away from the damn computer which i'm at nearly at all day as it is.

yeah i'm tired of everybody always whining about the demo disk, its better then nothing
i swear if next months demo doesnt include the playable demos of halo 2, doom 3, project ego, and madden 2004 they will be all ****ed and say they wont resubscribe...

What part of the fee do you think goes towards the DVD with the demos? The magazine is NO WHERE NEAR worth the 10 (can.) dollars that I pay for it if the DVD is useless...otherwise it should be a 5 dollar or less magazine. There are hardly enough pages of content to warrant its price... so hell yes I'm going to complain that the DVDs are just rehashed every issue.

I also happen to get the issues 2 WEEKS after it comes out on the shelves...don't even try to defend a company that is so far behind, dishes out so much crap and repeats itself over and over again, in which half the time its all about useless rumours that never seem to happen.

I enjoy reading the magazine...but it just has too many flaws NOT to complain.

I'd still buy them if they had pertinant and interesting information in them, but really this subscription has been a portion of wasted money.
