Playboy Magazine Collection Guide

  • They can be collected as you play through each chapter of the game except Chapter 1. Each magazine depicts a centerfold model from the 1950s - 1960s era.
  • You can view your progress from the main menu under "Extras", "Collectibles", then "Playboy".
  • Finding one magazine may earn you the Collector's Item achievement.
  • Finding all 50 will earn you the Ladies' Man achievement.
  • The magazines are numbered 1-50, but do not appear in order.
  • They must be collected in specific chapters and usually at a particular point in the mission; if you miss one you can select "Load Chapter" from the game menu at any time to replay it.
  • If a magazine does not appear at the listed location, you may need to exit then reenter the building or area. If this doesn't work, replaying the chapter may be necessary.

Trivia

  • Playboy reviewed Mafia, saying it was "An offer you can't refuse".
  • The Playboy magazines are all anachronistic; Playboy was not founded until 1953, and the images placed in the game were published between 1958 and 1968. The 19 Playboys added in Joe's Adventures range from 1960 to 1969, with a single image added from 2007.
