Australian Video Game Magazine Cover Archive

by on Apr.01, 2012, under News, Site

My personal favourite part of the Australian Gaming Database (which we launched yesterday) is the magazine section, where we focus on detailing the history of video game magazines in Australia.

Over the last couple of months, you may recall that we put out a call for anyone with collections of Australian magazines to provide cover scans for us to help us get as many covers together as we could. We’re over halfway towards having a full set (with a hundred or so sitting on my hard drive waiting to be uploaded), so I thought it’d be a good time to show off what we have so far, and publicly thank those who have contributed.

A special thanks goes out to Anthony Tran, Jason New, KiwiArcader and John K, who all took time out to provide scans.

    Wiki: “Due to the potential for wiki vandalism and spam posting, accounts will only be created after users e-mail a request to the Administrator.”

    …Fair enough, but where do I find the Administrator’s password?

    I hope you meant e-mail 😛

    It’s – I will add a link on the front page of the wiki.

    Hi Matt,

    Paul Taylor here, Deputy Editor of Official PlayStation Magazine – Australia. I’d be happy to supply you with jpegs of our cover art, rather than relying on scans, as that way you’re getting them as they’re meant to look.

    There’s a great collection of covers here from other mags. Nice job on getting what you have so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing more!

    Cheers, and looking forward to hearing back from you,

    I have a great deal of NMS issues (all but 12 of them). If you’d like some cover scans, let me know and I’d be happy to oblige. 🙂

    Let me know what sort of format/file size you’re after.
