Sony's Kevin Furuichi responds to complaints about the lack of quality freebies in the newer Qore episodes and more.
"Because Qore is an all High Definition Television production, this is one of the best ways to see how a game looks on the monitor you actually use to play games. Everybody talks about the same videos being on the internet, but it’s not the same if you want to see and almost feel what, say, the Battlefield battles look like or the gorgeous render of Tokyo at night in Yakuza 3."
I wish they still gave away the episodes for free in the back of the Playstation (PTOM) magazine. I subscribe to the magazine and used to look forward to getting the free codes. I am definitely NOT going to pay $25 a year for Qore.
They give you a $20 re-subscription option. That you don't know that makes me wonder.
Is this all Sony fans do is complain?
That actually makes a lot of sense. I'm too cheap to try Qore, but being able to see the product on the exact screen through the PS3 system instead of screenshots in a magazine or over the internet does s sound better. But then I keep my magazines in the toilet which is a luxury as well, and the internet footage and screenshots is available much sooner I'm sure so that has its benefits too.
I resubscribed for $20 and am currently half-regretting it. I really appreciated the freebies...even come to expect them. Either way, its a great service. I only wish they could give away more than a free theme here or there.
"They give you a $20 re-subscription option. That you don't know that makes me wonder." Makes you wonder about what? I have never had a subscription to Qore, so I didn't know that (although I still wouldn't pay $20 for it in its current state).
I haven't been very happy with the lack of content in Qore aswell. Does anyone else notice the lack of game demos and themes these days? I've been a Qore subscriber from day one, but I might not renew my subscription this summer.
Qore is garbage. if anything, Qore should be complementary when subscribing towards the PS magazine.
true, garbage and ripoff
I subscribed at issue 3, and I believe I got more than $30 in free games from the subscription, so it was worth it. No way I'd re-subscribe though. The only episode I really liked was Halloween 2008, which was like... 3rd in my subscription. The rest were crap.
Don't think its the same company as the physical mag. They just share the name. They do need more content though. Exclusive footage, something you'd think Sony would want them to have, at least.
Complaining about Qore being a "rip-off" is stupid. Sony has provided it's fanbase with a choice: either you like the Ezine Qore and pay $2.99 an episode or you get the other FREE Ezine in PULSE. There's no drama here and Sony doesn't even own Qore, they just present it. PULSE is owned by Sony and it's FREE. Also, the only people who should complain about the content of Qore are those who pay for it and that's what this article is mainly about.
high velocity bowling all the time as free psn game wtf
Veronica Belmont don't seem to want to eMail me back!!!(i have sent her about 6 Million eMails) ;-D + Where is this??? - http://www.opmhd.co.uk/ Er it sounded good anyway. Oh well...
Qore is absolute ballz. They need to fire that butt ass ugly girl doing it... Get better content... More content and reformat it. It's obtuse and flat. 25 bucks a year for Qore with no value or perks to back up its price tag is criminal.
I have to disagree : Qore quality is improving. January Qore has some fantastic previews with unseen footage from Bioshock 2 and Heavy Rain. February Qore has preview of EoE, Yakusa 3 and BFBC2 and the demo of GOW3 : the thing is I really like their HD previews. Great content even if the price point is a bit too high.
i agree wit dis comment 2 a degree.. Qore has improved on da video aspect of things...wit previews n all dat..but freebie downloads are jus crap...last year it was great(NO! it was good not great) u received a lot but dis year its bullocks im payin 4 extra shxt..not payin money 4 sumthing i can watch online(ie. videos >.<)
What language is jivah speaking? I don't think I have seen anything like it before. Fascinating.
It is almost too painful to read.
I don't understand how people can write like that. You actually have to think about how you are going to misspell words yet keep meaning somewhat intact.
HD content? They stopped doing Qore in 1080 since episode 13 or 14, now it's only 720p. Being a 480p/1080i tv owner here I feel ripped off by that.
For the betas and such. I mean, yeah there are other ways to get betas, but I don't really feel like preordering and canceling all the time. The actual Qore itself? Never watch the thing.
lol. If you think its worth it or want to test it out, then more power to ya, go try it.
But thankfully I looked at the stuff that has been given out recently and that changed my mind very quickly. Seems like a total rip off. There isnt much on there you cant see elsewhere on the net. and I would put my $30 towards some games I actually want to play
...I, however, am a 2nd year subscriber who got ripped off in the freebie department. High Velocity bowling sucks THAT bad and it shows because Sony can can barely give the damn game away. This month was fairly good in it's coverage though, very in-depth videos on Yakuza 3 and Resonance of Fate looks amazing.
my only complaint about qore is that i cant use my blu ray remote to navigate. i usually watch qore while on my exercise bike and dont really want to use a controller to navigate.
I don't like Qore because it makes me buy/rent games I never would have even given the time of day otherwise.
Well it could be possible to demand for more freebies. Like free PS One Classics, unlimited movie downloads, free PSN Arcade Games, etc via Playstation Qore. See no need for PSN premium service.
I don't think PSN premium can come soon enough.
Subtitles! it made me mad!
when was the MNR beta on Qore?
