PC PowerPlay

Publisher: Next Publishing Pty Ltd
Total Issues: Still in production
First Published: May 1996
Publisher Digital Issue Availablity:  194 – current (Zinio)

One of a triumvirate of top tier Australian leisure computing titles (alongside Next's own Hyper and the competing Atomic:MPC) but now the sole remaining PC oriented gaming title in the market after the demise of Atomic:MPC in Dec 2012.

After years of other publishers releasing digital versions of their products Next Publishing finally came to their senses and recently started making versions of this title available through Zinio and via Pixelmag's Readr application for the iPad. What isn't known is whether there is any intention of making earlier issues available on these platforms.

  1. Hi,

    the FileFactory and MediaFire links for Issue 146 are switched.

    Thanks for bringing those mags to a bigger audience. 🙂

  2. I just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work. Tracking down and scanning these issues must take a huge ammount of time. I really appreciate the effot. PC mags from the late 90's early 2000's are my favourite. It's always a treat to see a new issue pop up!
