Who remembers the magic of a PlayStation Demo Disc? I do. But I equally remember the magic – or more accurately, strangeness – of the Official UK PlayStation Magazine, which is where the PS1 demo discs and even PS2 demo discs came from in the first place if you lived in the UK. There was a US edition, plenty of spin offs and unofficial magazines, and even alternatives for other consoles like Nintendo Power, but this isn’t them, and you aren’t watching AVGN. Angry Video Game Nerd, sorry. Reading a PS1 magazine or a PS2 magazine was like reading your favourite book, if somebody kept on updating it because of new information. This magazine not only hid all of the classic PS1 demo discs that I talked about in my demo disc review video, but ended up becoming the best selling gaming magazine IN THE WORLD by 1999 after featuring a Metal Gear Solid review and Metal Gear Solid demo. The success never reached those levels again, but the magazine itself is still going today and managed to survive through the dawn of the internet, eventually ending up into the Official PS3 Magazine and nowadays the Official PS4 Magazine. I’m saying ‘official’ a lot because I think it’s important to stress that this wasn’t a third party magazine – it was Sony licensed, and as the magazine transitioned from PS1 to PS2, I’m surprised it was still Sony approved. Like any time a franchise or product reaches its highest sales volumes ever, this also means sales eventually do drop – and when this happens, to try to recreate initial high sales volumes in the early years, sometimes you end up completely losing it and forgetting what made you so successful in the first place. I bring this up due to what ends up happening to the Official PlayStation magazine – form the PS1 to PS2, it slowly became an adult-oriented and sleazy magazine for lads in a desperate attempt to reinvigorate the hardcore fans and bring in more casual people than ever. You won’t believe what you see towards the end of this video, and won’t believe this was an official publication from the heads of PlayStation themselves. Hotlines galore, inappropriate comments, weird articles, gross pictures, it’s got it all. Get ready for my longest video yet, grab your popcorn, and let’s look at these pages with our mouths gaping open together. Rate Your Mate, indeed. Welcome to the Caddicarus PlayStation magazine review, featuring Metal Gear Solid, Hideo Kojima, Abe’s Odyssey, Abe’s Exoddus, Jak and Daxter, Heart of Darkness, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Enter the Matrix, Rascal, Tekken, and plenty of really old Nokia mobile phone ads for Java games and ringtones of early 2000’s hits.
