OXM question.

Do they still come with the demo discs? I remember seeing them years ago but decided to never get them. Yesterday I went to pick one up, but it had no demo disc. Do they only come with certain issues?

They stopped the demo discs about 4-5 months ago.  I always just threw them away, kinda pointless as all the information (demos/videos) were already on the marketplace long before I got the disc.  The trade-off was the magazine started using "prettier" looking paper stock.

I liked the free themes and gamerpics that came on the disk though. and Demo disks were good, because they allowed people who were not connected to live to play them.

^^ That's true. Demo discs were good for those people. I still have a few rare gamerpics I got from those demo discs. I think Xbox World still comes with a demo disc, but I'm not sure if it's sold in the States.

E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!

Wow. That sucks. I guess there's really no incentive to buy them as I can just read them in the store.

I've still got so many of those demo discs with the gamer pics on them from when I had a subscription a year or so ago. Still need to put all those gamerpics on just being lazy.

You still get the demo disc's well we do in England anyway, last month we got Space Marine, and the month before that we got NBA 2K12

I'm not sure how it is in the US, but the OXM in Australia/New Zealand is absolutely awful.  GameInformer is a 1/3 of the price and a much more professional magazine.  I recommend you go with GI

I still have all my game demo disks although I stopped getting the mag at the beginning of the year. Another feature of the game demo disks is that after the first big update to the Xbox when they launched the NXE. The demo disk started carrying the latest update so people who never connected could update and play the latest games that required it.

the best magazine for xbox games is @gamer, from bestbuy
