Well it looks like they have decided to re-launch the 'new' OXM starting with the February 2012 issue. Unfortunately it looks like the DVD is no longer part of the package. Their notes from page 66 explaining the decision to cut the DVD reads as follows:

"You've told us you don't want the DVD anymore, and we listened. We're no longer offering the DVD, so if you were receiving the DVD edition, you're eligible for 3 complimentary issues!"

Just when they finally started bringing back monthly content on the discs they pull the plug. I'm sure it is more of a cost cutting move than anything with the decline of print media. In some ways I can't even believe that OXM still exists, but I'm sure the large install base of the 360 has helped the magazine make it as long as it has. It would be cool if they continued to deliver some type of extra digital content, such as throwing 5x5 codes in the magazine or via email, but I doubt that will happen. I guess we will just have to be satisfied with our 3 extra issues and 'heavier, thicker paper". LOL

No one complained about the DVD that's the only reason some people subscribed to the shitty OXM for the gamerpics. Oh well sucks for them

Agreed, it was the only reason I subscribed for a long time. You know this is really easy for OXM, make an app, since the new dashboard is app friendly/focused now, and have subscriber exclusive content available to everyone digitally through Xbox Live.

Just found my old box of OXM demos.

Is there any disc with exclusive content or was everything here available somewhere else?

I think we had a pass-along thread at one point of OXM discs. I got some "exclusive" Left 4 Dead gamer pictures and some sweet themes from whomever ran that thread.
