Good that whole thing was a waste in a poorly put together package.

They should just focus on putting out smaller individual videos rather than a big downloadable thing thats irritating to use. Making ofs, dev diaries, they could even look to some of the good gaming related series on the net for inspiration.

They could put out little featurettes, lets plays, maybe some reviews. As long as they let them go at it unbiased it would be pretty good. If there could be a show of the caliber of all your history or jon tron's shows.

It would be a relatively cheap way to get people looking at their games and content as easy passive and consumer friendly advertising. Though it would rely on quality content.

It probably would have been more effective if they'd streamed it. A poorly-put together show is nothing. Look at the crap clogging the gaming media today. It's just that no one wants to wait an hour to DOWNLOAD a poor put-together gaming show.

Yep that's honestly why I never watched those. Never wanted to take the time to download.

No way, the money should be spent on developing a sit-com. It stars a Sony Executive and a Microsoft Executive, who have to share an apartment in downtown New York for utterly arbitrary reasons. They are frequently visited by Fanboy, a fickle videogame fan who frequently switches sides completely from one exec to the other, depending on whatever wacky scenario is in play for that episode. Antics ensue.

Clearly, this is a gold-mine. Can I have my million dollars NOW, Sony?

Please tell me you have a future in television.
DragonKnight  +   822d ago
That idea is literally the best thing that could happen to tv today. I'm completely serious. Tv is crap these days and I feel like an old man when I saw I miss the 90's and "when I was younger we had better tv shows." It's just the truth though.

It was Alright when Veronica was host, then it went completely downhill.

It's just wasn't the same without Belmont.
gatormatt80  +   822d ago
Yeah I bet once she found out that Sony wasn't renewing their contract with Future Studios, the makers of Qore, she probably started looking for a new job. That's probably the real reason she left.
lodossrage  +   822d ago
Two things did this
1, when Veronica Belmont stopped doing the show

and

2, the fact that buying it was worthless because PSN Plus uses got it free AND ANYONE could have seen it free in Playstation HOME theaters. Which made actually paying for it obsolete.
Akiba96  +   821d ago
And it also was a considerable waste of resources. I liked the show, but I'd much rather have sony be using those resources on some of their 1st parties than a kinda pointless "video magazine".
lodossrage  +   821d ago
It wasn't pointless. It did exactly what it was meant to do. "Pointless" is subjective at best.

The problem was it lost value the moment the started broadcasting it in HOME free and gave it away free as part of PSN Plus.
Akiba96  +   820d ago
@lodossrage I did in fact say "kinda pointless". I know, not a very good word to put next to "pointless" but hey, It's there. Though I agree it did lose its value because of home, but even if it wasn't on home, how many subscribers do you think home actually brought in?? I can't imagine it was very much. Also my wording was off, I didn't mean pointless, but unnecessary. We also have to consider the fact that Sony is predicting around 5 billion in losses this year.. I'm pretty sure it has a lot to do with restructuring and refocusing.

I really liked On The Road with Qore. The Japan ones were the best.
gamerz  +   822d ago
It should have been free to everyone and not a Playstation Plus exclusive.
rezzah  +   822d ago
Gotta make their money somehow because PSN is already free.

Live would have the ability to offer Qore for free, but I doubt they would do that even if they could.

Cracks are starting to show. Wonder what's next.
MariaHelFutura  +   822d ago
Wow, you're actually serious.
Ron_Danger  +   822d ago
Ha! Your comment is the perfect example of someone who thinks their extra clever and subtle and has an open portal to post their thoughts... When in fact you just come off as some weird dude who sounds like a villan on Star Trek...

"Cracks are beginning to show" he types and then immediately starts rubbing his open hands together while laughing to himself...
DragonKnight  +   822d ago
LMFAO!! Bubbles for the laughs. Totally true. I wonder how Picard will thwart him. Hahahaha.
MidnytRain  +   822d ago
I thought it was pretty effective. Looking at his comment then at yours, I'd say you were overreacting.
Awesome_Gamer  +   821d ago
Stop trollig..
Dumbass
tarbis  +   822d ago
Veronica should join Christina Lee in Pulse. I'm sure they'll make a great team together.
FinaLXiii  +   822d ago
The dam thing should be free its not like im gonna pay to know a little more about some certain game.

Besides this was never avaiable in Europe.

I never watched that show. Did I miss anything?
Raoh  +   822d ago
A few things but not much.

It is better than a print magazine. Free themes and games (pre psn+ of course) with video normally not found anywhere. The biggest selling point for me was first dibs for betas but that also comes with psn+.

It needed to be upgraded and pushed better but no, your not really missing anything.

"On The Road with Qore" was awesome. Otherwise, sure, it wasn't that great.

If they did nothing but tour around, visiting games studios and the touring the cities they were in, like they did with their "On The Road with Qore" videos, it would have been brilliant though.
