My advice would be to get down to WHSmith or a supermarket (I've seen them stocked in Morrisons) and pick it up there if you still can, because Future don't know what they're doing. Doing a quick search of social media, some people appear to be getting the bagged copy that's available on the highstreet, whereas others are just getting RG.

I mean surely for every copy of RG there would have been a Super Play produced?

Not stolen either BTW, as it's a tamper-proof bag.

This is what it looks like. There's no way of sending one without ther other unless you've done it on purpose.

I ordered before you too so it just makes no sense how this has happened.

Mines showed up and had the supplement thankfully. Reading it now while I wait for a Destiny update to download.

Just came in to say I got this as well. I got mine though so no need to let them know.

You email MyFavouriteMagazines and you end up getting an automated response "For and on behalf of PC Gamer"

I've never had a problem with MFM for all the years I've been using them, so this is all very surprising.

Supplements always seem to do well on eBay too, if you're happy to part with them after you've read them. Just allow a few months...

I got my magazine delivered whilst I was away and coming back today I've opened it and it's just the main magazine, no supplement but I also have that email from them so I've emailed their customer services guys. First and last time I'll be using that website.

I bought a copy from Keele services northbound on Thursday. There was one left then, so if youre having trouble finding one, then that one might still be in stock.

Email update from MFM:

Thank you for your recent email.

I am sorry the Super Play Insert was missing from your issues. I have therefore placed an order as we are currently waiting for some more stock to arrive but once they are delivered your order will be fulfilled.

Please allow 7/10 days for these to arrive.

If there is anything else that I can help you with please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I feel like I must be missing something as to why they keep referring to themselves as PC Gamer, but at least they're sorting it.

:D Went to my local Tesco Extra, and there were several this morning. Can't guarantee this will be replicated across the country (I'm in Scotland), but WH Smith's shelf was conspicuously empty yesterday so I was not expecting to get a copy. Glad I did though :D

Finished reading this today. Great little magazine. Very much hoping they do the same for the N64 and we see both a mini console and a new issue of N64 Magazine. :wub:

I e-mailed them 3 times with no response. Called them today and they'll send it out in the next 3-5 days. Why they ignored my e-mails but yours was dealt with I'm not sure.. :?

I have this mental image of staff going around shops and buying them back to send off to those who've ordered online (though I wonder how many unsold copies they'll receive back at changeover).

Very strange how some people have received the bag copy; it's as if they were intentionally taken out.

Just phoned them and they're sending out the Super Play, I wouldn't bother emailing if you haven't got yours yet, just go direct and call them, much easier.
