it's always out on release day via Readly and that is just the basic PDf rather than the slightly more interactive iOS version.

 

Not this time it isn't... still the Final Fantasy issue on there at the moment as the latest one.

 

The other Future magazines released in the last week or so seem to have made it, though... Official Xbox and PC Gamer are showing up as the new issue, for instance.

Sorry, my mistake. I thought that was the latest (the issue was a bit too FF heavy for me and as that is a game series I have zero interest in I’ve only flicked through this month)..

Still no sign on the Google Newsstand? How on earth can it take longer to receive the digital copy than to buy it at the shops? Whoever it is this is outsourced to needs a kick in the balls.

It has just appeared on Readly so that's something. Still strange that something so simple took so long.

Thanks! Looks like it is, but it won't let me read it :lol: It acknowledges that I'm a subscriber but the only option at the moment for me is to buy it. I'm guessing it's still processing the arduous upload and it will be available for me shortly. No hurry tbh, I won't be able to sit down and read it until tonight anyway :)

This happens quite often, where it appears in the store, but can be almost a day before it finally ends up downloading if you subscribe. All in all it is a bit of a mess and the sole reason I want to pick up an iPad instead, as I get a few magazines digitally now.

 

 I also subscribe to GamesTM and that never seems to be late, so whoever deals with that, they should let them sort Edge out as well!

Ooh, take note Nate! That's a good tip

I don't like iOS and I'm invested in Google Play Books as my default all things e-reader, so that's not an option for me. I don't want to go back to print either, so I'm hoping they'll sort it out.

By contrast, both the Official Playstation Magazine and Total Film are out now in newsagents, but not on Google Play or Readly. So best keep whoever's doing those two away from Edge...

 

(It's going to be all the same people, isn't it?)

Total Film turned up on them both on Friday.

Official Playstation Magazine is still missing, presumed lost to the void.

 

Digital copies are GREAT, eh?

You'd think digital would be way easier (not to mention cheaper) to distribute than print, which needs actual physical copies transported to all corners of the world with lots of companies and people being involved in the process before it ends up in the hands of the consumer. And yet, uploading a pdf is where things go wrong.

Funnest place I spotted Edge was while living in Japan. In a side alley in Akihabara I found an import shop full of American and European import games (selling at import prices of course) which also had Edge for sale! 

Back in the year 2001 I spent 9 months in Australia.  I travelled a lot but spent around 3 months in a very small town in the North West of the country (Broome).  It is a very remote town where the daily newspapers were flown in each day from  Perth (I believe).  I was living in a tent on a shoestring budget and spent most days on the beach.  I managed to find Edge in a small newsagent for around £15 an issue (so worth it) that were also 2-3 months behind.  I was a subscriber and devout follower of Edge back then (still a fan today) and loved finding a copy on (almost) the opposite side of the globe.  It also made me smile that the copies were printed about 2 miles from my home in the West Midlands back then!

 

I ended up reading each issue cover to cover and decided to pick up a Purple Gamecube on my homeward journey just to play Super Moneyball and Luigi's Mansion.  Result!
