Episode 3 of Qore hits the US PlayStation Store later today and it’s packed full of great content, including premier access to the Resistance 2 public beta. Episode 3 goes behind the scenes at SOE to bring you DC Universe Online; Audrey Cleo, the new "Qorespondent", brings you NBA ’09: The Inside; Veronica Belmont checks out Lego Batman; and a look at Baja: Edge of Control.
If you are a annual subscriber, the new episode should automatically appear in your purchase list on the PlayStation Store. New subscribers will be able to download past content and get Calling All Cars, the full game, for free. New downloadable content in this issue includes:
- Premier Resistance 2 Public Beta access
- Qore XMB Theme
Q: Will I be able to re-watch episodes? How will back issues or previous months content be handled?
A: Yes. When you purchase an Episode of Qore, it becomes available in your Download List. You can then download it to your PS3’s HDD and view it as often as you like. In addition, should you decide to delete an Episode of Qore from your HDD, you can always go back to your Download List and download it again. This, however, may not apply to downloadable content that is associated with a particular Episode, as that content may have its own restrictions (i.e.: beta invitations and timed exclusives). As a side note – when you purchase multiple Episodes of Qore they all download to your HDD separately. So, it is possible to have as many Episodes of Qore on your HDD as space will allow – the latest Episode does not overwrite previous Episodes.
Q: Will Qore be compatible with PSP via remote play?
A: We are currently evaluating the PSP as a platform for Qore delivery.
Q: Does this mean that some older PSN titles will become available to download for Qore subscribers?
A: While we have no announcements to make at this time, we are evaluating other PSN titles as possible bonuses for new annual subscribers.
Q:Do we have to watch advertisements during the Episodes, or will we be able to skip them?
A: Currently, Qore’s advertising model is to allow our advertising partners 15 seconds of interstitial advertising (forced-run) in each individual advertisement before our users are given control and allowed to skip the advertising, should they so desire. Should you want more information on an advertised product, you can then go to the Sponsor’s page and watch a longer version/view additional content from that sponsor. In addition, the forced-run advertising is only active once per session – it will not reset until you exit Qore. This does not apply to advertisements that are delivered as banners or that frame editorial content.
