Xbox 360 GAMER's first anniversary firsts

The UK's leading Xbox 360 print magazine celebrates its first year in publication with its first free gift and the world exclusive first-look at Pivotal Games' Crossfire

19/10/06 - Uncooked Media announced today that the first anniversary issue of Xbox 360 GAMER magazine will come with its first free gift - a full colour, double game guide book - as well as the world exclusive first look at Pivotal Games' new IP for the Xbox 360: Crossfire.

The free full colour book included with 360 GAMER #17 - on sale Thursday 26 October - features a weapons guide and first level walkthrough primer from the official Prima Splinter Cell: Double Agent guide, as well as a complete mission and Achievements guide to Just Cause.

Pivotal Games' Crossfire was one of the first exclusivity announcements at Microsoft's X06 event in Barcelona, and is a whole new IP from the UK developer behind the critical and commercial hits Conflict: Desert Storm, Conflict: Vietnam and Conflict: Global Storm. 360 GAMER's special cover feature brings readers the first look at the game, with stunning screenshots and concept artwork, as well as interviewing Senior Programmer Sebastian Grinke.

Stu Taylor, Group Editor, Uncooked Media said:

"The timing of our first anniversary of publication couldn't be better to roll out our first free gift. This is a thank you to our loyal readers who have supported us these past 12 months and 17 issues, as well as a way of enticing new Xbox 360 adopters looking for an honest, intelligent and independent guide to Xbox 360 gaming.

"Everyone on the magazine is excited to have been the first in the world to see Pivotal's Crossfire, particularly as we are fans of the developer's Conflict series. This cements an impressive first year that's seen 360 GAMER secure exclusive first-look coverage on the biggest Xbox 360 games, including Bioshock, Stuntman 2, Turok, Phantasy Star Universe and Star Trek: Legacy."

Xbox 360 GAMER was launched by Uncooked Media in October 2005, and is the only UK Xbox 360 magazine published every three weeks. It also offers unbeatable value with a standard retail price of £2.99 for 132 pages, and is available through the likes of WHSmith, HMV, Gamestation, Borders and newsagents.
