    Do you think Newtype is a bit expensive?

    Hey peeps. Truth here. I was at a bookstore the other day and I nevered notice the price on Newtype magazine. The damn magazine was about 12 bucks...I was very shocked to learn about the price. I know the magazine is imported and it costs more but when you look at it Import Tuner is also an import and especially High Times which is based in Denmark. What do you think about this crazy price for this magazine and not to mention the 12 month subscribtion price. it's probably like over a $100

    I have to pay $25 newzealand to get that magazine. the subscription price is better than buying it every month beacause you are getting more mags for your buck. And don't forget it also comes with a dvd

    Thanks alot Sasurihell and Kedar for the sigs and thanks Sammy 65 for the changing pics

    It is a bit outrageous but you gotta understand scince its a new magazine(probably) they gotta probably get there feet off the ground (sorta speak) and also maybe the exchange rates with the diff. countries come into play. Theres alot of reasons for the price.These are manly ideas (keep in mind)

    Actually, 12 bucks for such a big magazine that comes with color pages and a DVD is a damn good price. And the yearly subscription is only $80something.

    And I was at the bookstore yesterday, too. You know what I bought? Newtype. Actually, I also bought the latest monthly of Anime Insider. When you compare the prices of the two, considering what they offer and what it takes to put them out, Newtype looks like even more of a bargin.

    $12/Newtype gets you:
    Oversized magazine
    Glossy, color pages
    the latest anime/manga related information
    Manga insert
    Poster insert
    free DVD with (at least) 2 full episodes and more previews
    over 150 pages
    Acess to a magazine, translated to english, that was released same-month in Japan

    Let's not complain here people.
