Sony Announces Qore

Sony Announces Qore

Published On June 3, 2008 | By Console Monster | News

This Thursday, North American PlayStation gamers will have a new way to access multimedia content on their PLAYSTATION 3 console. Sony has announced Qore (pronounced “core”), which the company bills as a “highly interactive, monthly lifestyle gaming program covering the world inside PLAYSTATION.”

Qore will cost $2.99 a month, or $24.99 for an annual subscription (13 episodes).

Users will have exclusive access to “news, developer interviews, in-depth game previews and behind-the-scenes looks at PlayStation games and special access to game demos, special beta invitations, game add-ons and other downloadable game-related content.”

The Qore service will deliver monthly episodes to users. Abigail Murphy, Corporate Communications Specialist for SCEA, responding to a question on the US PlayStation blog, said that the monthly episodes will “[range] from 1-2 hours total length, but you control what you watch and when.”

Murphy also noted that Qore will not effect the content in the PlayStation Store.

“If you purchase Qore, you will have access to exclusive content that would not be available otherwise – it does not impact the availability of the great content found on PSN, nor does it change our free play model.”

Qore is currently a SCEA-only initiative, so PS3 owners in all other regions will not have access to this content.
