View Full Version : If PC Gamer UK goes on sale on 2/15/02 (Fri)....

Shouldn't subscribers get it today or tomorrow? Or does the UK version have a different shipping schedule than the US PC Gamer?

Does anyone in this forum subscribe to PC Gamer UK?

If they don't have a copy at Frankfurt or Paris International Airport....

Well, I am sure they'll blame Osama anyways....

Two different PC Gamers can be found here in Finland. We have our own Finnish version and the UK one can also be bought. The next issue of PC Gamer UK won't be avalible here before 3.3.2002 though, so anything new said in the review will be on the internet before it's even out here. Oh well, I don't buy gaming magazines anyway.

I'll give you guys a heads up on Friday and let you know what its all about.. I don't have a scanner to scan the whole review but I can give the highlights and if anyone has a server I can upload the movie.

Basically with the Lightside and Darkside boxes is just another way of PCGAMER uk of saying DVDPCGAMER and CDPCGAMER which is how the magazine usually sells one copy for people who don't have DVD drives and the other for those who only have a CDROM drive. Usually the DVD contains 4.8 GIGS for Demos software and movies ect and the CD version only has a few of those apps and demos ect..

so I'll be getting the DARKSIDE box and I'll get all the goodies but as with the subscribers getting their copies early I have no idea about that, but I would figure that it would come maybe a day early at most since Britian is quite small so shipping early wouldn't be that nessacary.

so if you want a copy of the movie provide me some space and I'll upload it but bear in mind Im only on 56K but Im also 6-9 Hours ahead of the US so if I get word on where I can upload it you guys can grab it when you wake up before work/school/college ect..

let me know.. and who was it who asked is the DARKSIDE Stronger?.. well it is in this case.

peace .

I wonder when a UK mag arrives here

02-13-2002, 02:50 AM
I will be getting the DVD version of the Mag. Now I dont think theres anyone here with a DVD drive so I wont be able to upload the files when I get home.
The Articles I will start on Thursday night, and post them on Friday morning.

I hear the blue one has three cds, and the red one DVD AND a cd

Lets hope all Jedi Knight stuff is on the CD, and the "regular things" are on the DVD...

That way you could upload :)

I assume there is a DVD drive at work then or something!@?

You can get the UK version of PC gamer here in the states at a B&N. if your a collector because the US PC Gamer is supposed to have a JO special as well. i mean it would be odd for just the UK version to do somthing and not the US version.

02-13-2002, 04:03 AM
I wouldnt bet on that... They are quite different...

I know where i live that they have the UK one someplace, jsut dont know on what day
