Indeed. Especially considering the game is out in November. I certainly won't be needing a PC preview or review in December - I'll be done with it by then.

The Dec 2011 issue came out a few weeks ago.

Although this is a particularly egregious instance, magazines generally tend to go to print with a date on the cover that is a month or two later.

This way, if someone finds an older copy on a store shelf, they will be more inclined to buy it if they don't realize how old it is.

Yeah, it's annoying as all hell. Sometimes it's best just to ignore the date on the issue.

Magazines need to adapt to the new reality. They're not fooling anyone and 30 minutes after the first person with a scanner gets their magazine, the contents will be online.

That said, it was a great article/preview for Skyrim and exclusive in that it was played on a PC.
