When it comes to re-subscribing, however, you will have to register at the EON Store.


You managed to hide that bit between things about the EVE store. If you are transfering the subscription management to an outsourced company we should get a few more information about that.

Why on earth is CCP using an in-house e-commerce/e-retail system? Focus on producing games, and buy that sort of stuff off-the-shelf. Do you guys build your own HR and Finance systems too?

Fix POSes.  Every player should want one (even if all players can't have one).

As a former contributor, I'm glad to see EON move forward!

We actually put a lot of time into researching the best platform and we liked Zinio by far the best. The service works across a greater range of devices (PC, Mac, Android, iOS) and you can download the mags as many times as you like to however many devices you own. No doubt there are some of you asking why we don't just sell pdfs from the EON Store, which is a fair question, but we almost see Zinio as the Steam of the magazine world. It has ubiquity, ease of use, a nice switch between portrait and landscape modes (and a text-only mode that we'll be eventually supporting), relatively small file sizes for each magazine compared to hi-res pdf files, and the aforementioned support over a range of devices - which, we're informed, will soon include Kindle Fire. Oh, and there's a nice preview feature too.


So basically it's going to be a proprietary, DRM infested format even though you're perfectly aware that PDFs exist? Sorry guys, I think not!

Question: I re-subscribed for another year during the 2011 Thanksgiving sale. I paid for it. 100%.
Now the 4th issue of 2011 was already released then, so my next issue should be the #1 of 2012.

Will I still get it, or do I have to pay for another re-sub year again (that I already did with thanksgiving)?

Nxt time I'm holding the digital format it will be like:



Enhance 224 to 176, stop. Move in, stop. Pull out, track right, stop. Center in, pull back. Stop.

Give me a hard copy right there Cool

The players will make a better version of the game, then CCP initially plans.

And then I'll...

Yes, you'll get it. All active subscriptions taken out through the EVE Store will be fulfilled. Your magazine will be with you very soon.

It is just one single edition (UK/US) at the moment, or a subscription starting with the same issue - #026. The back issues will be added in due course.

This move (which I wholly approve) speaks volumes about the EVE store... Roll Perhaps CCP will do something about it one of these days...

the pricing of the digital format is absurd. Its 25% more expensive then the printed format on some DRM ****** plattfrom.
The reason why you are not doing pdf is clear to everyone who is not a dope, you are afraid people share it.

You should embrace your customers and not shakle them!

Sounds cool, I have been toying with the idea of getting a sub of a distinguished magazine for my coffee-table, this might be just the kick in the pants I need.

Let others brag with the economist or the times on their coffee-table, I prefer my reading about internet spaceships.
