New look for PCR website

In short, the new PCR website has been built to give you all the content you already love, packaged in a form conducive to our web-centric, socially-networked age.

It’s all part of our goal to keep PCR as the number one information source for the home and business computing trade across as many channels as possible, encompassing online, print, email, mobile, apps and social networks.

The most obvious change to the site is the look and feel, which we believe offers readers a cleaner and more engaging browsing experience – we’ve taken away the clutter, allowing you to get to what you want quickly and easily.

The Carousel and Homestream are now the focal points of the site, allowing you to immediately see the most important stories of the day and then scroll down the page to view everything else that happening in and around the industry.

You can also customise the types of content you want to see in the Homestream, in addition to toggling the size of each article preview pane.

But the charges aren’t just cosmetic. In order to get the most out of the new PCR, you’ll need a full user account. Once registered, you can:

  • Create a Public Profile
  • Comment on articles
  • Buy & download industry reports
  • Follow articles you’ve commented on
  • Sign up for PCR emails and manage your preferences
  • Access digital editions of PCR magazine
  • Buy a directory listing for your company

If you don’t have an account, click here to register with PCR now and gain access to the above features.

If you had an account on the old PCR site, click here to log in using the same details – depending on how complete your account info was on our old site we may ask you for a little more information to complete your profile fully.

Or, if you had an account on the old PCR site but can’t remember your login details, click here to have a reminder sent to you.

One new section we’ve added to the site is industry Reports – these cover a varirty of topics and are downloadable in PDF form. They are available at a variety of price points, ranging from free white papers for fully registered PCR readers to just £39.99 for a fully comprehensive market overview.

Our regular areas remain, of course, but have been buffed and polished. The revamped PCR Directory section is a comprehensive listing of the MI trade’s best and brightest companies, while our New Gear section will keep you abreast of the latest products in the market.

The Events section, meanwhile, offers a complete rundown of the best conferences and networking opportunities the games industry has to offer.

And don’t forget, on top of all that you can also download the PCR iPhone and iPad apps, and Digital Edition of the magazine (registration required), all sponsored by VIP Computers.

"The world of publishing has changed, and PCR has changed with it," said PCR editor Andrew Wooden. "The website has been providing the home and business computing trade with up to the minute news for some time and with the new design we are taking things to the next level. Watch out for more announcements from us soon as we expand our digital presence."
