    I am looking for a magazine that comes with a demo disc for the Xbox, but the official one doesn't. Am I outta luck?

    Also, are there any good one's for the PS2? I've seen one that comes with it, but every week I look at the disc, and it's got two or three playable demos of games that don't interest me, and tons of movies. I like the Winter Jampack, but guessing from it's name, Jampack only comes out four times a year.

    My Copy of the Official Xbox mag came with a Disc. Maybe it is avalable both ways.

    From what i understand from the 2nd issue of Official XBox mag, the 3rd issue and ALL subsequent issues will include fully playable DEMOS.
    IMAGINE Mags Inc. are always excellent when it comes to including CDs/DVDs with files, utilities, movies, and demos.
    Ive been a subscriber to PCGamer for 7yrs now and plan to get sub to XBox mag soon as I buy my system . . . that is if it isn't already under my XMas tree. [​IMG]

    Yep, the Official Xbox Magazine comes with a DVD every month, and is between $25 & $30 a year for the subscription. It has preview trailers & playable demos. They also include a DVD cover in the magazine for insertion into a DVD case (yay!). You can even get the green cases if you want at www.inetdvd.com .
    They have said that they will include things such as songs & add-on levels & skins for games in future discs. (yay!)
