The magazine was "suspended" in 2004 after being sold (alongside PC Zone) to Future Publishing. Future, who also published CVG's main rival Gamesmaster, subsequently decided to publish their magazine as opposed to keeping CVG in operation. Subscribers received a copy of Gamesmaster in place of CVG, along with a letter claiming the magazine had been suspended to allow the staff a break and would return in a few months. Currently the magazine has yet to return. PC Zone (founded in 1993) was the first magazine dedicated to games for IBM-compatible personal computers to be published in the United Kingdom. ...

  • Whilst editor, Paul Davies almost lost his job due to the sheer volume of Tekken 3 coverage he ran each month. This included printing every character's complete moves-lists twice (once for the arcade and once when the PlayStation version was released), and 3 consecutive previews in the final months before the release. Whilst some magazines do this with most big games, it is rare that both previews were cover stories - one of which was the main cover story, before the review was also the main story two months after the first preview.[citation needed]
  • In the mid-to-late 1990s, CVG staff member Ed Lomas took on quasi-mythical status due to his (largely mocked) love for Pink Floyd, and had his own section in the Freeplay section of the magazine called The Legend of Lomas, featuring tips and cheats for all systems.
