    It has been recalled due the dead goat thing, but don't know any more than that...

    [Edit, I'd imagine that it'd take an extra week or so for the print to be changed and re-run etc]

    If people are complaining about a dead goat, how come the PS3 mags still get away with having porn numbers and pictures at the back of the mag in the classifieds???

    Are these magazines for kids, or adults, or both?

    May I suggest you use better grammar and punctuation in the future. That was really hard to read and it doesn't really take much effort to write it properly.

    Regards why the magazine isn't in the shops well you just answered your own question. It's to do with the dead goat promotion that took place at the GOW 2 party in Greece. The pictures were deemed offensive and the magazine and Sony decided it would be better to remove them before the magazine went to distribution. Unfortunately by the time the decision had been made the subscriber copies had already been sent out. It will probably show up this coming week.

    5/10 see me!

    Where is this monthis Offical Playstation magazine? All subscribers have a copy and it should have been in shops on Wednesday 2nd May, but it is still not in the shops. In the newspapers last Sunday there were complaints surrounding an article in the magazine reporting on the God of War 2 party. It seems it showed a sheep cut open, and all copies of the magazine were pulped. There is nothing in shops or even on the web site from publishers saying what's going on! I was looking forward to reading article on Grand Theft Auto.

    Ahhh, thats better :) Too much time on my hands? Me? ;)

    I could give you a hands on review and probably a walkthru for GTA3... As well as a rundown of the entire plot and all that jazz as well if you like? :smashin:

    Oh dear! There had to be one mistake in my translation, make that "Grand Theft Auto 4" instead of 3!

    Well there was a big thing in one of the 'wannabe broadsheets' the other day (Hint: It was the same one that had a big thing about GTA and 'emo' music), that at a God Of War launch party in Greece, there was a goat that had been 'sacrificed' as part of the promo... My understanding was that it was a goat that had died naturally... But anyway, the Mail made a big fuss saying "BAN THE PLAYSTATION" or similar, meaning that the issues of OPM got reprinted before they could hit the shelves, but not before subscribers got their copy...

    I am a subscriber to the magazine and have to admit, that I think the picture is a bit inappropriate to have in a computer magazine, but that is only my opinion.

    From my understanding the said rag felt the need to re-print the offending photo :nono:
    As a new (£3 for 3 issues) subscriber I can honestly say I was not offended and full marks to the journalist who kept 4 bowls of (still warm & ?raw) goat offel down to win a PS3 :eek: - personally I'm pleased I shelled out the money instead.

    I seem to recall reading that was taken out of context and it was actually a local Greek dish. I could be wrong though.

    Im a bit suspicious of the £3 for 3 issues deal on HDUK - i think theyll end up charging you the full 12 months, good luck tho, itll be good if they dont :)

    Just here

    http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58026&highlight=playstation+magazine

    Its a great site - but on this offer people seem to have missed the "Minimum 12 months contract" small print when you enter the deal. Apparently some have been okay cancelling after 3 months, but Im not so sure its a dead cert especially if they cotton onto it.

    EDIT: Just been reading it, i suppose it does say trial - and also if its DD you probably can cancel without any major probs?

    How disappointing I was quietly impressed by the feat; there's nothing heroic about eating Greek food though, I love it.

    They've messed up big time, both with the delay and their failure to deliver a Blu-ray demo disc as promised in the last issue. Shame cause it's quite good for an official magazine.

    No BluRay, but we did get a free, paper-thin, "This is Living PS3" t-shirt... Oh, and mine still had the "offending" pic - I must admit that my first reaction was "what the...!?", but I can't say that I was offended in any way..:rolleyes:

    The subscriber copies were already sent out by the time they made the decision to take the so called "offending" pages out. It's only the retail copies that are affected.

    The Playstation magazine with a free PS3 t-shirt is in Smiths today.

    But is there not one called Official Playstation 3 magazine coming on the 2nd May with the Blu-Ray demo?

    Can anyone confirm if they raised the cover price because of the "free gift"? I'm pretty sure the price will go up to £5.99 (or £6.49) when they start putting "free" Blu-ray discs on the cover :rolleyes:
