2600 price increase?

13 posts in this topic

Did anyone notice that the 2600 price seems to have gone up to $5.50?

I went to the web site and just clicked to see the contents list and noticed the price of $5.50 which caught my attention. Now it doesn't really affect me much, since my subscription goes on for like 2 more years, but I am wondering why the price increase?

Hell, we are independant, with no volume discounts, and are struggling to keep it at 5.00, so I understand how hard it is. But I would have thought that with their wide distribution and bulk discount rates that they could keep the price the same.

wassup wit' 'dat? :blink:

Good catch, I completely missed that. Subscriptions listed in the magazine are still $20 though, and I hope it stays that way. Virtually every magazine I can think of gives a discount to subscribers. Of course, I think we all know why they need the increase...all their money seems to go to cross-country journey's, movie making, and donations to radio stations. I won't say that's good or bad, but I think it's the truth.

I think you are absolutely right. :borg:

Whether I agree or disagree with their politics, I do not feel that they should increase the cost to fund their own political agenda and personal sabbaticals.

Dammit screamer, we need to disagree on something again soon. Other than the whole war thing (which i do not want to go into again), we have been seeing eye-to-eye lately... :omfg:

Has anyone seen blood rain or plagues of locusts anywhere? :ranaway: I'm getting nervous.

All this time 2600 has just been a front. That extra $0.50 goes right to Microsoft. Before too long the MSN butterfly will be showing up on the cover.

There was some rumor going around about 2600 filing for bankrupcy.. but I'm not sure.

if rumors were the truth, we wouldnt be around right now. i think 2600 is sitting pretty, and the only thing they might have is some impending lawsuit that they are keeping under wraps.

Planet X is supposed to enter the solar system on or about May 15 and reverse the magnetic poles of the Earth.....but no locusts. :o

The price increase could be from some "back end" increase in their operating expenses. All it would take is something like their printer to increase the price for soemthing, like proofs or the cost of the paper, and 2600 would probably have to increase the cover price to keep rolling.

Just from working on a couple of projects that I've had lately where printers were involved, the prices have gone up from the last time I worked with them. Color proofs that used to cost $10 have gone to $12 in the space of 6 months.

Could be something similar with 2600. Just a thought.

If 2600 filed for bankruptcy, that would be public record right?
