Sony has announced that the latest episode of Qore will be its last. The interactive digital PlayStation magazine started in June 2008, and while no reason for the sudden cancellation was given, it was likely part of the massive cutbacks at Sony where over 10,000 people are losing their jobs.
“This episode also features a retrospective look back at Qore’s nearly four years on PlayStation Network,” said Kevin Furuichi, Executive Producer at PlayStation Network. “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 throughout the series. Our thanks to all involved in the creation and production of Qore and to the many fans who regularly watched each month.”
