Sounds very nice to me! By the look of that cover it's £8, this true Edge?

Is this a one off, or the first in a series like EDGE FILE?

"The full list of titles featured in volume one of Edge Presents The Art Of Videogames..."
Implies that it will continue
I have not got it yet, but the list seems a bit confusing... Only one Mario game, and not even Wind Waker?

This looks like a good pick up, looking over the games i noticed a key one missing from the list.
I would have like to see "Shadow Of Colossus" that game was all about the art!
O'well shall be picking this up today.

I was put off the File specials by the poor quality photos. This looks great though and if the picture quality is better I will probably buy it
