  • The computer gaming magazine The Games Machine started its existence in November 1987, in England, and was translated in a number of languages, among which Italian. In England it didn't do particularly well and issues stopped after a couple of years. In Italy, on the other hand, it was so well accepted and liked that an Italian editor bought the rights to the magazine and started selling it as an original Italian computer gaming magazine. To this day, The Games Machine is still sold in Italy and is one of the longest-living computer gaming magazines in the world.
