My Official Playstation Magazines
« on: April 01, 2013, 20:46:06 PM »
Mentioned in another thread I would try get some pics of my OPM collection and I finally got round to getting them out of the attic and taking some pics.

I seem to be missing a box as I dont remember missing any issues from when I started to read it until I stopped but this is Issues 23, 26, 34-36, 38-63, 67-70, 72-90 plus 2 specials so thats about half of the full 107 magazines they released.

Im going to try and make it a full set so if anyone has any that they would like to get rid of (especially issue 1-22 and 91-107 as I didnt buy the magazine at that time) Ill be happy to take them.

Thanks for sharing! I enjoy magazines for what they are a time to a past history when the games were new and the input was fresh.

Very Impressive!!!!

Nice work fella, I used to collect a few mags but it became a nightmare to store them. Will look if I have any of the ones your missing mate.

Nice! I have been after a few of these myself but to little joy. I did get issue two recently though, the issue I love most.

Lovely lot pal. I hope you enjoy the memories. :)

Exactly what i found.

As it is i have pretty much complete collections of Edge+Retro Gamer, Gamestm up to about 18 months ago (not got all the special bookzine issues of these though), complete DC-UK and Official DC mag, 95% of Maximum mags, lot of Zzap 64's, Mean Machines, Saturn magazines, misc issues of The One, around 75% of The Games Machine and loads of odds n sods. (Your Sinclair, Sinclair User, Commodore Format, Frontiers, Off. PS3 magazine, Off Xbox magazine, Offical 360 magazine, Sci-Fi now etc etc)

Every time i've moved house/flat i've had a clear out in order to reduce the stacks of magazines, so far the following gone to recycling over the years:

Ultimate Future Games, Games-X, misc: C+VG, Playstation Plus, Play Nation, M.A.G, Mega, C.C.I, C.U, SFX, Empire, Fortean Times, Dreamwatch etc etc.-Did at the time look at Ebaying them, but the mags just sold for pennies and Postage was a nightmare, folks kept asking if i'd split collections etc, just did'nt have the time to sort it all.

Kept the various articles etc i wanted, rest? recycled.


The publishing industry had a good few pennies from myself over the years, lol.


Collect graphic novels as well and again, running out of space
