Any of you know if the Nintendo power glove ever appeared on the cover of any retro gaming magazines ?

Nice...of course it would be Randy Savage.. what's up with the pad on that power glove? Must be a prototype. I wonder if he was even wearing it or if they just cropped that right on there..lol

Yes, unless my memory is mistaken, I remember an issue of VideoGames & Computer Entertainment magazine featuring it on their cover. Which one, I don't remember.

 

EDIT: 1989, #8 Sep Power Glove cover

Lots of times. You know about Google Image Search, right?

The nintendo power one is a fake. I talked to a collector a while back and he told me the glove was never on the nintendo power.

That Nintendo Power Flash cover is real and the most memorable cover featuring the Power Glove.

In a world where people argue over the damn Bearenstain bears, a little clarity goes a long way.
