View Full Version : AmigActive folds!

Yes folks it's true, the world's best-selling Amiga magazine, AmigActive, has folded. See the story on amiga.org for details. 'Tis a sad day indeed for the Amiga community. :(

Yep. That sux. I never even bought an issue cause the shitty newsagents didn't sell it. :(

Well ok, they´re dropping the CLASSIC AMIGA stuff but I think for an up-to-date mag it´s very important to keep up-to-date and so they think the future lies in AmigaDE and such stuff .... I think they´re just trying to keep all jobs to continue a magazine, I think that´s the only way to survive for them in these days ...

Crap. Maybe I should've bought all those issues after all (even though I don't have a PPC Amiga or an Amiga CD-ROM drive :p). Wasn't that like the last UK Amiga magazine in existence? :( It was the last one standing after Amiga Format (the longest running Amiga magazine in existence) folded ages ago. Come to think of it, now I wish I bought EVERY single issue of AF...

I have every issue of AF from issue 70 to the last. I also have a few of the previous ones
I wish I could get the rest

I wish I could buy those 3 issues!

I bought every issue from #3 (first one to make it to Australia) onwards...
Good thing I didn't subscribe though...because I suspect I won't be wanting "digital"...biggest problem of AmigActive was that they had too much stuff which really had nothing at all to do with the AmigaDE, let alone the AmigaOS. I would have rather they had more detailed reviews/tutorials/etc. instead of wasting space on some of the "NextGen Watch" crap. Bloody vapourware. If they have reduced AmigaOS content still further, that's the end for me, I'm not paying $18 for a couple of pages at most of AmigaOS content. There was heaps of good things they could have used the pages for, I would even have preferred more of the "retro" stuff if that's all they could fill the pages with.
What do others think?

Shame it folded really, I bought a couple of the issues, but I wish it did not have the cdrom which upped the price beyond the realm of the casual Amiga Fan. I think 2 types should have been released ie one without the CdRom for a couple of pounds and the full version for the hardcore Amigan.
End on an era yet again.

Amiga Active was for the hardcore Amigan, no doubt :)
This news is really sad, I remember when CU-Amiga folded, what a sad day (and then later AMiga Format ..
