Play magazine celebrates exclusive PS3 review of Aliens Vs Predator with special treatment package

Having secured yet another exclusive PlayStation review the UK’s bestselling independent PlayStation magazine, Play, has partnered with legendary games publisher Sega to create a collector’s edition of the latest issue to coincide with the release of Aliens Vs Predator.

Issue 189 of Play features a special themed double cover, with one side sporting a unique Predator design and the other a fitting tribute to the menacing Aliens. The magazine also comes packaged in a distinctive foil bag that includes a free book and exclusive DVD, which contains behind-the-scenes production footage of the AVP game.

Commenting on the collaboration, Play magazine Editor Keith Hennessey said,“Aliens Vs Predator is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year and the fact that Play has managed to secure the exclusive review continues our long-standing commitment to bringing our readers the biggest exclusives first.” Hennessey closed by saying,“Web-savvy consumers are demanding much more from their magazine and this special package certainly delivers– you’ll never find something like this on the internet.”
