    Hi guys,

    You will receive a beta code with every version of the magazine. Those getting the mag digitally should receive the code later this week - probably Wednesday. If you don't get one, the Giftageddon e-mail is your best bet. Everyone will get a code (unless you're the person who has currently sent the same proof of purchase four times from different e-mail addresses.)

    We're going to take feedback on board and make the gift instructions much clearer in future issues - this has been a popular giveaway, and I'm writing a lot of explanatory e-mails at the moment! Please bear with us.

    Cheers - and see you in PS2!

    Chris

    That's right, yeah. We'll do our best to get everyone codes as soon as possible. Remember that the beta isn't due to start for a while - you're not missing out on any play time if it takes a few more days.

    He's Chris. I'm Ben. I sadly have very poor beard powers.

    I'd just like to clarify that I no longer have a beard. We've taken new mag photos to prove it.

    Nice catch Chris.... Can't blame people for trying I suppose.

    Still... annoying for those with real issues that something like this is exploited.

    Yeah I know, but you confirmed it first, why I thanked you. Although if it makes you happy, thank you Chris also.

    Beard powers care not for the actual presence of a beard. That's why they're superpowers.

    Ah my bad, got confused because your reply was right after Chris' so I assumed you were replying to him.

    One of my members bought it then posted this on my forums.

    Quote:
    Thank you for contacting Future US Store.


    At this time the game codes are only provided in the print versions of the magazine.



    If we can be of further assistance, please let us know. To ensure your future concerns are handled in a timely fashion, please include all previous e-mail correspondence.

    Sincerely,
    Jodine
    I assume he's tried to purchase the UK mag through their US distributor or something but have asked him to clarify
    However, I feel a bit bad if I posted this thread on the forums and one of my members spent money to get a issue to get access to PS2 and there was no access to PS2?
    (edit) my member clarified with this
    Quote:
    No, definitely ordered it from the UK Zinio store. On the Zinio page it even says:

    "Please note: This digital version of the magazine does not include the exclusive codes you would find in printed newsstand copies. However if you subscribe you will receive these codes via email from your next issue to complement your digital edition."

    Now, I did not subscribe, I just bought the one mag. Hopefully that's not the problem.
    Dafuq man?
