Read the latest issue.  The article that reviews the SMS is a great read.  Fans of the SMS should take note of this issue.

Just read the latest issue ( as only just found this thread) and it was a good read. Shame there isn't a PAL price guide but understandable if you're based over the pond :D
Title: Re: The Official Video Game Trader Magazine and Price Guide
Post by: zapiy on March 14, 2015, 12:42:01 PM
Yeah something like that might help expand the sales.

First and foremost, thanks for your patronage. I'm glad you enjoyed the issue. A PAL price guide is a good idea. Unfortunately, we don't have a complete PAL list available to us. We would be open to the idea of someone contributing pricing information to us.

Suggestions welcome.

Just finished reading issue 32.  The two reviews, (Happy Bird for the Odyssey 2/VideoPac & Space Raid for the Intellivision) were very good.  I loved the article about The History of Video Games: The Early Years.  I actually got to see a real Computer Space machine at the Florida Arcade and Video Game Expo in Fort Lauderale just a few weeks go. 

By the way, cool to see the ad for RVG in the issue!   :113:
