“We listened to a lot of feedback from readers,” explains Editorial Director, Dan Hutchinson, “and we were consistently asked to produce a title for the Nintendo Wii.

We will be sourcing the best exclusives out there to ensure our readers are always up to date with the Wii and DS, especially in this run up to the Christmas period.”

All magazines including PlayZine are professionally written and produced by a team of games journalists and publishers with decades of experience in the magazine industry.
