    Nice contents!!

    One good thing that I have noticed for the last 2-3 months is that the magazine contents are displayed before the CD/DVD contents on these preview threads. Which means more and more preference is given to the mag contents which is certainly a step in the right direction. Keep up the good work!!

    Fast track is good. Will have to read it for the final opinion. Movie of the month is good one too. Rest, I cannot say are very good or very bad. A balanced issue. (I have seen worse and better once too).

    Is there a Processor shootout in this issue? First of its kind in Digit. Good contents. CD/DVD contents could have been better. You people know-a-days no longer include game3 videos.

    Nice, Cant wait to get my hands on the issue. I hope tomorrow is the day. The magazine seems to have become too rigid - the same sections and stuff which are filled in. Nothing wrong, but things become too predictable when you go through the mag. Some new sections, layouts, something which we aren't used to see can really bring that added pleasure while reading. Video reviews, tutorials, guides - something more interactive than words. And yes, please do not burst the bubble for all the stuff in the mag and CD, there should be some surprise left when you actually get a copy of the issue in your hands.

    Cool Contents.
    XNA Studio is the best one in contents.

    Please give 3DS Max Trail next time.
