Got My Copy of Nintendo Power's Final Issue! Empty Got My Copy of Nintendo Power's Final Issue!

I just went to my local grocery store, and they only had two copies left on the magazine shelve's. So I carefully examined both copies for any damage that may have occurred during shipping, but they were both pretty much in prestine condition. I chose the copy that had the least amount of scuffing on the corners of the spine. Which is barely noticeable, but I have OCD, so... Anyways, I'm glad I own a copy of the newsstand edition, because it comes safely sealed in a cellophane wrapping. Even if I was a subscriber, I would still want to purchase a copy of the newsstand edition because of that. Although, I only purchased a copy to keep as a collectible. But yeah, I got my mint condition copy of Nintendo Power's Final Issue! Have you purchased a copy of the final issue yet?!

Not yet but I only checked at one Rite Aid the other day and they really didnt have a magazine section. I might check a few more places but I also heard that you can order it online from Future Publishing.

Are you serious about being able to order the final issue online Tasuki? Because I'd really love to have another copy, so I can actually read it. There's no way in **** I'm opening this copy, otherwise, and I highly doubt that other copy that was at my local grocery store will be there for very long.

I haven't checked myself but I have heard from people around the net that you can order a copy from Future Publishing. Not sure if you could always do that or they are just doing it cause this is the final issue.

Staroceancrazy, that's a good friend you got there buddy. Not just because he cared enough to purchase a copy for you, but because he already knew how much you'd want a copy.

Tasuki, let me know what's up, as soon as you look into that. I tried accessing their website last night, but I was unable to locate any sections containing information about Nintendo Power and it's distribution. I believe I had accessed their UK website, is there an American based website? If so, would you be so kind as to provide a link?

I have plans of having a gaming room someday, and that poster would look really awesome up on the wall next to my display cabinet containing my golden Triforce WiiMote, Xenoblade Chronicles artbook & my unopened copy of Nintendo Power's Final Issue. And... I'd also really like to read the greatest issue in Nintendo Power history. Very Happy

Believe it or not, but there are already new copies selling on North American Amazon for as far upward as $150! One customer review states that you can still order a copy directly from the Nintendo Power website at the newsstand price + $1.50 for shipping, but that's completely untrue. If you try to access the website, it'll inform you that both the subscriber & newsstand edition issue are sold out. I think I made a fairly intelligent investment of only $5.99 + tax. Very Happy


And if, for some reason, you don't happen to believe me, check it out for yourself then.

To my understanding, most people, subscribers included, are actually deciding to open their copie's. I'm definitely not opening mine, even if I'm unable to purchase a second copy to read. Just wait about 10 years down the road, after the economy has stabilised a bit more, and the supply of factory sealed copies are much more scarce to come by. I can almost guarantee that those people will be kicking themselves,, for opening their only copy. Just like I'm sure there are probably people kicking themselves right now, for opening their copy of issue #1, or for not taking good enough care of it.

The first issue and for awhile all issues didnt come wrapped in anything. All they did was have an address label attached to the magazine and sent it like that. Later on down the road possibly due to damage due to the delivery they started putting the magazines in plastic.
