If you were to go to, say, Barnes and Noble, you'd pay about $5.99 for a single issue of Game Informer. You may even be able to get the issue in question on eBay for less than that a few days after it releases. --- ____(^O_o)>_~<(Mudcrab Headmaster and Calvary Commander, Skyrim Forum) _____/ /_\ \___/~~(GT: Lucious Zero)~~(=< O_O)=<~~I,MtFTG

Dark Magician Master, It's not just a gaming magazine thing. It's a magazine thing. All magazines do this.
I only pay attention to gaming magazines, so I figured I'd be specific. ;-)
I remember Nintendo Power used to NOT do this, years ago. Then they started doing it, I think around the time they changed their logo and whatnot. Weirded me out. --- The revolution will be televised.

Something hilarious is that I ordered a subscription online Sunday, and it said "usually ships within 24 hours." On Monday it "shipped." On Wednesday I got a package with a little piece of paper saying thanks and saying it can take up to eight weeks to receive my first issue.

15 bucks is ridiculous for a crappy Gameinformer! Its Also pretty sad that there arent any good gaming magazines these days either! You cant even buy a Nintendo power at the grocery store anymore because they dont even carry it.
