"With all the mudslinging going on between Sony and Microsoft at the moment, it's easy to think that the impending arrival of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is all that's going on in gaming at the moment,” explained Andy Griffiths, editor of FirstLook.

“And while yes we have lent our voices to that debate, in a feature declaring who we think is set to win the first battle of the console war, the rest of this issue is all about proving that there's plenty of new games to get excited about even if you aren't splashing out on new hardware.”

Inside FirstLook magazine there are direct links to PreOrder-IQ.com associated with every game featured, so it's possible for an individual to learn about a game and place down a pre-order in just a few clicks. Additionally FirstLook Magazine can also be easily embedded on any web page, be it a publisher's website, product blog, or community forum.

FirstLook is available as a downloadable .PDF every month via GamerZines.com and PreOrder-IQ.com and there's also the ability to view each issue in a browser via Issuu.com. The latter option means that readers can catch up on the latest issue by PC, tablet or phone without the need to download any additional software.
