I think it's about time that a magazine was released for ALL LBP games. it would cost around £4.99 and in the first issue you would get a copy of LBP1. perhaps in a later issue you would get all the video tutorials from ComphermC.
it would be broken up into sections from the latest games to the first game and within each section there would be general advice, tips and tricks and printed tutorials. (in the first addition there would be a brief overview of each game). at the very beginning there would be the normal letter sections, which would be followed by 'Creator of the Month' with pictures from their levels and opinions from the creator. all the well known community sites would be listed. there would be a news section with information about shows, DLC, games etc. at the very end of the magazine you would have a chart of ALL the existing DLC available for each game.
I'm sure there are plenty of other sections you guys/gals can think up!
it's late. this is not very well written, but i really think this is a good idea

Nah, I don't really picture this working at all. It'd basicly be like paying £5 to do what I can already do for free by browsing a fan site like this one for ten minutes and then taking a trip to the Playstation Store.
Plus, I really don't think there would be enough content in one month to flesh out an entire £5 magazine.
creator of the month section
Logic of the month (a section of complete logic including: elevators, lifts, doors etc)
A list of creations worth playing (20 a month)
LBPVita section (each section broken up into tips, tricks and tutorials)
ALL DLC so far
and any other interviews from Sony, MM etc...
and i'm sure there are lots more that could be added.
giving away a copy of LBP1 in the first issue would guarantee great sales of the first mag.
something like this would fill two or three pages alone:

That would be awesome. I support this idea.

like i said, they could give LBP1 away in the first issue. that would surely sell a hell of a lot of copies and then later on they could offer Conphermc's tutorials on a Blu-ray too. this HAS to happen.
a monthly cartoon would also be a nice touch
Ok, I draw the line at a cartoon. There were way too many bad video game cartoons in my youth for that one to slide.
(Just thinking of the Super Mario Super Show almost makes me shudder).
Home Blu-ray release of something easily accessible on youtube also seems excessive.
But the magazine itself could work. Even though all of the information on it can be found online, at least there it'll be nicely packaged and organized. People buy strategy guides for games ven though the same information and more is online, so its concievable that this could work.
It just comes down to people wanting to buy it monthly or weekly. For that, I honestly don't know if it would the the majority. It would be a somewhat risky spending endeavor that I think would be better directed towards improving the games themselves. If we're ever at a time when there are no (major) problems people would rather see fixed, then looking into spending on a magazine might be worth it.
(although I'll concede that by then, it would probably be too late for it).

I think he meant a comic-panel cartoon, not an animated series.
Oh ha, that makes a hell of a lot more sense.
Now I just feel silly. Well, not that silly, for that I would have understood "comic strip" more.

yep, i just meant a cartoon strip in the magazine, not an animated series. although i know you can get the information online, you would be surprised how many people don't bother looking for it. i for one would buy the magazine even though i DO know you can get it online. i remember when i used to buy a magazine for the Spectrum way back. the logic used to take you forever to type in but it felt worth it (when it worked)
So what would you expect the average monthly circulation for this to be?
I'm not sure about that... I mean you have a point with giving away the first game free to attract attention and all... but sony already played that card with the welcome back package after the psn outtage last year so may not attract as much people as you think.Regards
