Sony has announced a new subscription-based download program, ‘Qore: Presented by the PlayStation Network’.

The Future-US developed show will feature news, views, and so on, but more importantly it’ll have demos and add-ons only available to subscribers.

The first episode will launch on Thursday, June 5 and you can subscribe on a monthly or an annual basis for $2.99 or $24.99 repectively.

Episode one will feature SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Secret Agent Clank, Soul Calibur 4 and Afro Samurai, plus new Blu-ray trailers, an exclusive SOCOM: Confrontation theme with an invitation to the SOCOM: Confrontation beta.

“To get Qore, simply log onto PSN and go to the PlayStation Store, as you would purchase any other form of downloadable content,” reads the US Playstation Blog.

“Once the single episode or annual subscription is purchased, that month’s episode will be downloaded under the ‘Game’ heading on the Cross Media Bar (XMB).”
