It's a digital preview for the very very last EGM that was supposed to come out prior to it going on its long hiatus.

Because of EGM's legacy of a magazine. It's a way to show people "When we re-release, digital copies will look this awesome" as well as give people who love the magazine some fan service.

EGM is not a part of 1Up anymore.
 
BTW  Seanbaby is back.

Why does it matter now that SFIV has been out for a million years?

Seanbaby is back in the new EGM, as are the crew of Bitmob.com and Area 5 Media.

It's apparent that you don't realize just how much EGM meant to some people.  Getting this final, unpublished issue is probably like a dream come true for a lot of people out there.

Because EGM was a legendary magazine, this was supposed to be the last issue but they got shut down right before they could send it to print. The return of EGM in semi-digital form with collaboration of former EGM/1UP employees (Area5.tv's Co-op, Bitmob, etc.) is epic.

Well, I know the significance EGM held for many people, especially with the aftermath of the 1upocalypse.  But I still don't understand why it matters.  I guess I don't need magazines for the same reasons others do: I just want the information.  I don't care much about the editorial.

It's going to be pretty weird opening my mailbox next month and pulling out an EGM...I really didn't think there was a chance of that ever happening again.

I had no problem with this and I think they have a really cool idea in the works here. I'm not ready to subscribe yet (I need more info on both the magazine and the staff) but I'm starting to like what I see. I despise my Maxime magazine that I get because of EGM:s death. I honestly feel quit insukted that Maxim was the magazine they thought I would like to have instead on EGM. I'm a swede and 1UP made me subscriber of EGM so it's really sad that my support for them barly lasted for a year before they went under and now I have a year of freaking Maxim issues to se dropping down in my mail slot. 
 
But as I said. The new EGM concept looks cool and forward thinking.

That is just tragic.

If they can make it work for iPad and other mobile devices, this could work well!

Look, I don't have so much money that I can decide to spend some just to hear subjective opinions of people working in the video game journalism industry via magazine.  The internet has everything I need in that regard, so paying for this is about as useful as paying for IGN insider for me.

I would extend my subscription if this happened, are you crazy?
