2 Old 4 Gaming, an independent publisher specializing in video game books and magazines, has announced a Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of RPM - The Unofficial Retro PlayStation Magazine, Issue 3. The magazine focuses on celebrating the legacy of Sony's consoles, with a particular emphasis on discontinued PlayStation systems such as PS1, PS2, PS3, PSVita, and PSP.

Issue 3 of RPM will feature a spotlight on the Resident Evil series for PS1 and an exclusive interview with the designer of the PS1 classic title, MediEvil. The magazine will also include reviews of games from the PS+ Classics Catalogue and retrospectives of iconic PlayStation games. With 72 ad-free pages, Issue 3 is the largest to date, and there are no plans for advertisements to ensure the magazine remains focused on its core content.

The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise funds for printing and distributing physical copies of the magazine to backers, with DRM-free digital copies of previous publications available as optional add-ons. Once the campaign is completed, and funds are processed, physical copies will be printed and distributed, with estimated postage beginning before the end of April 2024.

2 Old 4 Gaming plans to release three issues annually to avoid delays and maintain quality. The magazine will be A5 size, and distribution is estimated to start by late April for delivery in late May. The Kickstarter funds will also be used to promote the magazine through various gaming websites and YouTubers.

Sandeep Rai, also known as "2 Old 4 Gaming" on Twitter and YouTube, is the publisher of RPM magazine. He is a lifelong gamer and avid fan of PlayStation's consoles, particularly the PS1 and PS Vita, which inspired him to start his YouTube channel and write multiple books about their history. With a deep passion for PlayStation, Sandeep aims to bring that enthusiasm to the magazine, honoring the legacy of the brand.
