So that issue with 'new' screenshots..what is that about? Not for sale yet?

I'm pretty sure that is old!

Sleeping dogs review gives it away for me.

Let's be glad that this sh*t will soon be over. When we get that GI issue, that is. No more bullsh*t from magazines that have new sh*t, pathetic.

You should have just read it in the shop. 10/10 for effort mate.

My friend works in the shop where I bought it so I'm gonna try and return it.

@MosquitoSmasher: I think that was the screens before the last set of screens. The issue I got was the Christmas 2012 issue. Last month's issue analysed the 10 screenshots we got in August.

Nah, you download the magazine from Newsstand and then you have to either buy a single copy or a subscription from inside the app/magazine.

You can see the cover says JETS! BIKES! SUPERCARS! PARACHUTES! TENNIS! It's the August screens they are going on about. Nothing to see here.

Ahh, I see. I stand corrected. That would have sucked for MoB though.

...I think the issue in my snapshot is the one that launched last month.

The second Andy made his tweet about the December GI cover, it simultaneously made EVERY other person, mag, fansite, and gaming website in the entire world, who claimed to have "upcoming news" completely irrelevant, and made them look like idiots.

All this mag did was probably catch wind a few weeks ago that GI was going to do GTAV very soon, and they are trying to capitalize on the timing of when their issues release to make people think "GI has an issue coming out soon, maybe this mag will have some extra details too!!"

It's all good, my friend gave me a refund, he said he would just say that some woman bought it for her son but it was the wrong one if somebody asks him about it.. which they probably wont. According to him magazines get opened all the time by people who just read them instore and then leave them there so a magazine on the shelf with no packaging probably isn't gonna raise any suspicion.

If there was anything significant in it, it would have been outed by someone somewhere. So I guess the conclusion is that XBW are f*cking retarded.

I asked them yesterday, and was instructed to have a second look... but they refere to it as a feature, not a preview. Eh, I am not funding their BS mag, respect to mrekim for taking one for the team to find out for sure.

No V means "i fool you to buy the magazine because the time fits a GTA V preview, you read nothing new in it but you cant say anything because there is no V in the cover"

F-ing liers.

I like how it started out a GTA V preview and then it became a GTA feature.

Glad I use the internet rather than have to take this crap.

That facebook message is talking about last month's preview. Their tweet talked about this month's issue, which is yet to come out: https://twitter.com/...442817108656128

We still have to wait and see whether it's BS or not.

EDIT: I see they revealed the cover: https://www.facebook...12342222&type=1


What a bunch of tosh, then. They gave GTAV top billing in their tweet saying they will preview GTAV! Turns out, it's not.
