UK 360 Magazine Gets Facelift

16/06/06 'C Uncooked Media's 360 GAMER magazine has received a facelift, and is now super A4 size (297x230mm) from issue 11, on sale 22 June. Best of all, 360 GAMER remains at a weighty 132 pages for '2.99, making it even better value for Xbox 360 gamers than ever before.

Apart from being a larger size, issue 11 of 360 GAMER leads with an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at the latest project from the Bethesda, the home of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The Enterprise from Bethesda's forthcoming RTS title Star Trek: Legacy dominates the cover and is the focus of a six-page feature and interview. Bethesda also speaks exclusively to 360 GAMER about Oblivion post-release, as well as revealing its plans for the next two major downloads for the game via Live Marketplace: Stronghold and Vile Lair.

Not only that, but 360 GAMER is the first Xbox magazine to preview Need for Speed: Carbon, the next-gen instalment of the leading arcade racing franchise and surely the bookies favourite for this year's Christmas number one video game? Plus there is an extensive look at Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent, which is shaping up to be Sam Fisher's most ambitious adventure yet.

360 GAMER also interviews Artoon's Takua Matsumoto about Blue Dragon 'C the anime-styled RPG that could be Microsoft's best hope in breaking the Japanese market; as well as looking at how Halo's Master Chief has become his own unique chat show star. And if that's not enough Halo for you, 360 GAMER dares to suggest '10 Things To Do While You Wait For Halo 3'. Plus, 360 GAMER has also teamed up with Rockstar Games to offer readers the chance of competing in a unique Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis tournament to be held in a top secret location in London during July.

Stu Taylor, Group Editor, Uncooked Media said:

'Whilst some are doing the Corn Flake diet this summer, in a bid to look trim in their Speedos, we've laughed in the face of convention and put weight on. The new, wider 360 GAMER delivers more of what our readers want without losing any of what they love and still at the same unbeatable price point.'

360 GAMER provides its readers access to a specially-created download website, full of the trailers and game footage that is traditionally bundled as part of a 'free' DVD in a magazine package retailing for an average of '4.99. This issue's 'Online Disc' features a documentary on Halo 3, plus footage of Medal of Honor: Airborne, Unreal Tournament 2007, Sonic the Hedgehog, Huxley, Spectral Force 3, The Shadow of Aten and others.

Continuing its reputation for unbiased and honest opinion, issue 11 of 360 GAMER also includes reviews of Chromehounds and MotoGP '06, plus Xbox Live reviews of Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis and a re-review of the patched and updated Call of Duty 2 on Xbox Live.
