Pay to play with the interactive PlayStation magazine

Recommended Videos

Last month I discovered a trademark for Qore, which was not filed as a game. Today, Sony officially unveiled the project, which is a PlayStation program filmed in HD. In addition to PlayStation video game news, the first episode of Qore will include a SOCOM Confrontation theme and an invitation to the beta. However, the content isn’t free. If you want to see developer interviews and “exclusive” news you have to pay $2.99 for the introductory episode scheduled to come out on Thursday or $24.99 for a thirteen episode subscription to Qore.

 

Whatever news Sony includes in Qore is bound to circulate through the internet via text and YouTube videos the minute it’s released. Sony has to offer something tangible as a way to get people to subscribe. It looks like demos, betas and hidden Easter Eggs are Qore’s real hook. If Sony included access to the Home beta with the annual subscription Qore would have been an instant hit, but right now it look like something PlayStation 3 owners will consider on an episode by episode basis depending on the playable content.
