PSN’s Qore Is No More
Way back in June of 2008 Sony released an online magazine (if you will) called Qore, which you could purchase on the PlayStation Store and has been available ever since monthly. That is until now, it has been announced on the PlayStation Blog that April 2012’s Qore will be the last issue released.
PSN’s Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi mentioned on the PS Blog.
“As the first interactive digital magazine on a game console, Qore provided an innovative mix of quality HD video and interactive content covering over 160 new games,”
“With this April episode, Qore concludes its run on the PlayStation Network. As a send off, the Qore team built one final DLC package: the Qore Ultimate Arcade features a compilation of 11 mini games offered through the series. Our thanks to all involved in the creation and production of Qore and to the many fans who regularly watched each month.”
This news does not come as much of a surprise with Sony reportedly gearing up to layoff some 10,000 people across their global work force. It has also been said their biggest yearly lose was on the horizon reaching $6.4 billion in total.
