UK games charity GamesAid is to auction off a collection of PC Zone memorabilia as the popular PC magazine sees its final edition arrive on the High Street.
The final issue of the mag contains a retrospective of its 17 year history, a look at the very best and very worst PC games and a host of testimonials from some of the industry’s biggest names.
The auction is being held at GamesAid’s eBay store.
“I join the rest of the games industry in saying a fond farewell to PC Zone,” GamesAid chairman Andy Payne stated. “For many of us, its anarchic gaming editorial has been with us our entire careers.
“We would like to extend our gratitude to Zone’s team for donating such a unique collection of memorabilia for this eBay auction, and urge everyone to snap up a piece of gaming history for themselves by buying a copy of PC Zone’s last ever issue.”
Future’s head of Edge International and PC gaming James Binns added: “After 17 years of uniquely irreverent gaming coverage it was a hard decision to close PC Zone, but the final issue can go out on a happier note knowing that our lovingly-accumulated collection of priceless stuff-from-the-office is supporting a charity like GamesAid. We’ll be tracking the auction on PCGamer.com.”
