Play (stylized as PLAY) is a monthly magazine produced by Imagine Publishing in the United Kingdom, which reports on Sony's PlayStation product range. It is the UK's longest-running PlayStation magazine,[5] and is in its 17th year on sale as of 2012. The print publication is available worldwide, as well as digitally on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad via a distribution agreement with Pixel Mags.[6] As well as being sold in the UK, PLAY is also sold in Australia. Though because of the distance between the two countries, Australia is one month behind, so some of the infomation may be inacurate or old. PLAY comes with a "Free DVD" every issue.
