Sony says farewell to Qore, PSN's digital magazine
Hot on the heels of the dire news of Sony's severe financial woes comes the news that the PlayStation Network's interactive magazine Qore, which began in June 2008 and has been released every month since, is coming to an end.
On the PlayStation Blog today, it was revealed that the April 2012 edition of Qore would be the last issue. PSN's Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi had this to say about the magazine: "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."
Furuichi also revealed that the team behind Qore did something a little extra for the fans. "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."
We've embedded a preview of the final episode of Qore for you below, which includes a look back at the digital magazine's four-year run.
