Sega Zone (Australia)

From Sega Retro

Hey guys just letting you know that while on my quest to find more megazones someone has found copies of some Aus SEGA Zone issues including a couple you don't have: I've let him know about you and now I've let you know about him Blake00 (talk) 09:33, 1 January 2020 (EST)

Cool... I found something you might find interesting on "Australian Commodore and Amiga Review" magazine (MegaComp/MegaCom/Megazone main competitor)... it looks that the magazine started as MegaComp ... changed the name to MegaCom (without the "P") and in April 1990 the name was changed to MegaZone...

Cheers that IS very interesting! I think the person who wrote that article might have mucked up the order as the "National Library of Australia have Issue 1 was MegaCom and Issues 2-4 as MegaComp". This originally surprised me as everyone has said MegaZone used to be MegaComp so a mystery issue 1 with no P on the end was not expected. I doubted the NLA but this article you found proves that there was indeed this mystery MegaCom without a P. Which site is right about the order in which this change happens remains to be seen haha but I'd say surely NLA would be most likely accurate as they logged it by looking at the covers. I'm getting lots of responses to my call for help across all social media sites and many forums however sadly no Canberra people who can drop by the NLA for us!

Yep... I agree with you... NLA is probably right about this ... but at least we are now sure that the magazine was once called Megacom :) ...Asagoth (talk) 05:55, 2 January 2020 (EST)
