PC Pro
« on: July 24, 2014, 11:19:58 AM »
As many fans of our TOSEC project have pointed out, the UK's biggest selling PC monthly magazine 'PC Pro' name checked us in their June 2014 issue, in their 'IN DEPTH' article: "Run retro games on phone, tablet and PC". Whilst this was very exciting, they did sadly get a few facts muddled up.

I'm happy to report that they have printed a substantial correction in their letters page in this month's edition (September 2014) under the heading 'Credit where credit's due'. So if you are a resident of the UK, or one of the many other countries around the world they republish the mag, then go down to your local news agent or convenience store and check us out... page 10.

Great news :D
Any chance of reading that outside of the UK? Never saw that magazine selling here in Portugal (not that i've searched much)

I'll make some scans.  :)

What they printed was edited down from what I originally sent/discussed, but still good enough!

I also discussed with the editor the possibility of contributing to future (retro related) articles which they seemed very keen on, so that will be a bit more exposure to the project too.

Very exciting stuff…

I wonder if they can sell the magazine as PDF, I wouldn't mind paying for a copy.

They do by subscription, not sure about ad hoc.

Will chuck up a scan in next few days.
