From the Editor: I've been gaming since Space Invaders targeted arcades and have been lucky enough to work in videogames magazines for every generation of Sony's consoles. PLAY Magazine is made by the same team behind Official PlayStation Magazine, and I'm proud we can leverage our access, experience, and love of PlayStation to bring you the best magazine possible every month. Our commitment to smart writing, covering the best indies as well as the next Triple-A blockbuster, and revealing how you can get more from your console is relentless. We're your best source for the latest news, previews and reviews for PS5, PS4, and PS VR. Every issue we also take a look back at the games and events that defined PlayStation. If you're a fan of PlayStations old and new, and want to be up to speed with the best new games, designed for print with care and originality, then sign up for a must-read ride into Sony's next-generation of gaming. The future starts here.

Stevibray ,


It’s very good, when it works. I subscribe and about 50% of the time i log in when a new mag is released and it asks me to pay £3.99 for the mag. I contact them and am told it’s a known issue and will be sorted soon. This means i often get my mags a week or more late. Eventually i’ll get it, next month is fine on day 1, next month it asks for £3.99 again!! Frustrating!!! 😡😡😡

Essential Read

A must have for any Playstation owner. My train journeys to and from work are not the same without it. I never buy a game without reading their review first either. What are you waiting for, subscribe now !

Takes your money without delivering

Was really been to try this app, and subscribed. However, it didn’t unlock the magazine to download. So I clicked ‘read’ and it still prompted me to pay £3.99. Eventually, after trying to get it to work, I paid the one-off price and it still doesn’t allow me to download the magazine.

Just avoid it and save your cash.
