Official Minecraft magazine coming to the UK 'very soon'
Now that it's appeared on nearly everything with a screen, Minecraft is taking aim at print media as well.
If you just can't get enough Minecraft while in front of a screen of some sort, then we've got good news: an official Minecraft magazine is on the way in the UK. Called simply "Minecraft: Official Magazine," Mojang promises the first issue will arrive "very soon"
From the sound of things, the magazine will be a solid resource for building tips and stories from other players. And for Minecraft fans, it's sure to be eye candy as well. Here's what to expect, from Mojang:
Included in the inaugural issue will be 14 pages of hints and tips, Mojang says. Issues two and three are also hinted at with Nether and winter themes, respectively. There's no word on exactly when the first issue will land, but it will come in at a price of £4.99. Plans for the magazine's launch in other countries are also in the works, but there's no timeframe provided.

If you love magazines like I do, then the UK is like a dreamland. They have so many great magazines there.
i do not even see the point in the game, so I will certainly not be buying the magazine. i do not mind E-books as i can use my E-iink Kobo, but no way could I cope with a E-magazine.
Interesting stuff. Normally, reading a printed media opposed to a digital one, is a good way to wind down or get a break from any addiction - however, in this case, I am not too sure :P
