Sony Unveils Qore

What is Qore you ask? Qore is "a highly interactive, monthly lifestyle gaming program covering the world inside PLAYSTATION." The program unveiled this morning to launch tomorrow (June 5th) will allow users to access game-related material such as trailers, developer interviews, behind the scenes videos, previews, and even access to early demos or beta programs. You could look at it like a digital magazine (with everything filmed in high definition). Qore will cost $2.99 an episode or you can also subscribe to all 13 episodes for $24.99. Hit the jump for a video introduction, some screens, and more information.

To get to Qore users simply access the Playstation store and look for the new episode. For those who purchase the year subscription each new episode after the first will automatically appear in your download queue. For more information head over to the Playstation Blog or check out the video below from 1up.

In an age of gaming seemingly ruled by online content it looks as if Sony is making a step towards Microsoft's Xbox Live system. Although making users pay half of what live costs for this service is questionable, it will be fun to see how it all works out.
