wow, I'd say I'd prefer ads than $10 an issue

Yea, it's rather pricey for only four issues. Make it like $20 and I'll go for it.

I agree with both of you - on a side note is it available in the UK? i might pick a copy up in winter if it's A) available in the UK and B) they sell it singularly.

Did you read the part that says 140 pages? Do you have any idea how much space is usually taken up in a magazine by ads? It's a lot, I can tell you that much.I'll probably subscribe, unless WoW.com ends up adding a new feature on their website where they summarize the best parts.

If that price includes some .. well, pics ... of Jaina... Well... Showing us her Spell Power, if you know what I mean, that'd be quite worthy it.

Prefer adds? It promotes WoW; it basically *is* advertising.

"wow, I'd say I'd prefer ads than $10 an issue"To each his own, but personally I can't stand ads. And I don't know what kind of magazines you read, if any, but $10 an issue is actually not that expensive. Lots of existing magazines are around that price AND they had ads. Tons of ads. In fact, in some you end up with more ads than actual content.In today's advertising driven society, putting out ANY content without ads is a fairly bold move, one that I would gladly pay $40 yearly for (even if it's only 4 issues)

For anyone that is doubting the 140 pages of content will be worth $10, I work in the magazine publishing business (In fact, I do the layout for 2 bi-monthly magazines) and I can tell you; 140 pages of content /without ads/ is a /HUGE FREAKIN' TON OF CONTENT/.The magazines I lay out are usually 140 pages as well, and they typically run about 60%-70% advertising. I even seem to remember a couple years back someone approached us to commission a 'zine with 40% advertising space - our salespeople practically laughed him out of the conference room.If this really is ad-free. It will be pretty crazy amount of content. I can only assume they will fill a lot of the space with huge pictures. Definitely worth $10 an issue if you're into magazines and huge pictures.Anyway, just thought I'd put that out there. No idea if the content will be any good, but if it's anything like everything else Blizzard makes, you can be pretty sure it will be awesome.

The main problem with this is: it's a magazine. A quarterly magazine at that. Almost everything that gets printed in it will be outdated.
