The lights are on
Sony said today it will no longer create new episodes of its monthly interactive magazine Qore. This April episode will be the last.
"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," Sony said. "With this April episode, Qore concludes its run on the PlayStation Network."
The show, which was co-produced by Future publishing, first began in June 2008. Qore was being offered through subscription or free to PlayStation Plus members.
A reason for the show's cancellation was not provided at this time.

Sony closes something? Everyone in the comments becomes a business expert.
I never read/watch Qore so this doesn't bother me that much. However, it sucks for the people who did read/watch Qore.
i never bothered with it in the 1st place so i'm manly indifferent... only gaming mag i've ever had anyway was gi and i don't forsee this changing
I had that thing for free with my PS Plus account and never watched it. Well I watched two episodes and realized it wasn't worth my time.
I can give you the reason for it being canned in two words..... subscription fee.
Bias morons above forget SONY doesnt just make ps3. Their losses are from their exspensive but amazing tvs. Also people forget they make tvs, cameras, labtops, stereos, speakers, dvd/blu ray players, you name it....they make it. Dont be so smug and bias next time you comment
Oh well. I loved the concept and it was a great program. I just wish we didn't have to pay for it is all. PlayStation should have just made it free for everybody and PlayStation Plus subscribers would get extra.
I kind of enjoy it, too bad I guess. Weird I'm not a PS+ member but I still got it for free (after a time period through).
I don't even know anyone who downloaded Qore
Qore was a nice idea, but it never really panned out the way that it was initially advertised. The monthly freebies were generally lame or old themes, and those were few and far between anyway. Replacing Veronica Belmont with that mohawked *** was pretty much the last straw for me.
Was this the one you needed to pay for? Because that's why it failed. I am sorry; I'm sure it was well produced and worth more than free. But as a consumer...it seriously should've been free. While you can call it a digital magazine, and magazines are goods you must pay for, that's not how it seems to us gamers. It's like a TV show, and people don't pay for shows on an episode-to-episode basis.
I guess Pulse is next.
Sad to see it go.
Well that sucks, but it was bound to happen with the layoffs hitting Sony.
Sony was making something called Qore Digital Magazine?
I guess they have the financial wiggle room to do something stupid like that and compete with the free internet. It's not like they're taking a 6.4 billion dollar loss or anything.
GI too good
I loved that magazine while Veronica Belmont was hosting it. I didn't bother to resubscribe after she left.
ice that competition!
never cared for it.
