Sony has announced via the US PS Blog that the April issue of its digital magazine Qore will be the last. In the latest issue, it takes a look back at the four or so years on PSN as “the first interactive digital magazine on a game console: in which it covered over 160 new games. As part of the send-off, the team behind Qore has release a final DLC package: the Qore Ultimate Arcade, which features a compilation of 11 mini games offered throughout the series.

Qore episode 32 splashes across the North American PlayStation Network tomorrow, bringing with it many and varied delights, including a scintillating romp across the year that was, a gleeful flick through DC Universe Online, and most interestingly, bonus goodies in the form of a Qore subscribers-exclusive Killzone 3 desktop theme and Mass Effect 2 artworks.

Qore Episode 13 will be released this Thursday on PSN.
Free bonuses this month include an inFamous Bad Karma theme, a Qore T-shirt for Home, and Spyro for both PS3 and PSP.
The one year anniversary issue also includes features on Fight Night Round 4, inFamous, and the Frag Dolls.
It looks as though the leaked PSP Go feature has been removed from it.
Can’t say we blame ‘em for the omission.

Remember Qore episode 13? The one that leaked the week before E3 with all the PSP Go info? It’s been delayed to include some… PSP Go info.
The following was sent out to Qore subs yesterday:
Dear Qore Subscriber,
As mentioned on the PlayStation blog on Friday, we are experiencing a delay in the release of Qore Episode 13. We are currently revising the content of the episode to bring you the most up-to-date information. With all of the great PSP (PlayStation Portable) content announced at E3, we are planning to have a full feature story on the PSP go in a future episode. We apologize for any inconvenience.
As a Qore subscriber, you are a valued part of our PlayStation Community. We appreciate your patience as we work to get Episode 13 to you.
Shouldn’t be too long. What’s left to say?

SCEA’s announced PULSE, a free-to-all video PlayStation round-up presented by an extremely wobbly Christina Lee.
Watch the first episode here. It’s a bi-weekly affair, apparently, and features slots on topical games, such as Prince of Persia, Street Fighter II HD, and so on.
PULSE and QORE are to be joined by TITS early next year.

According to this US PS Blog post, the seventh issue of US PSN mag Qore will be free.

So, this month is your chance to check out an entire episode of Qore starting this Thursday, December 4th.
The episode features SKATE 2, Bionic Commando, Damnation and Killzone 2. And some woman with a hat on. See through the link.

Here we go. PS3-Sense brings word that Home beta invites have been sent out to Qore subscribers.
The piece also says that, as expected, version 1.0 of the app’s client has been put live on the beta servers.
As reported earlier this week, Sony will now bring large amounts of people into the beta in two waves, followed, hopefully, by the open beta.
Find the Qore invite mail after the link.

Sony’s confirmed that only those with an annual Qore subscription will be allowed to get on the Home beta through the downloadable US mag.
“As an update to the PLAYSTATION(R)3 News email sent on Friday, October 24th, the special invitation to PlayStation(R)Home’s closed beta is available only to Qore annual subscribers who purchased subscriptions by 10/29,” said in an email sent to customers.
“Qore Episode 06 purchasers will not be eligible for the special PlayStation(R)Home beta invitation at this time. We apologize for the miscommunication.”
Glad that’s sorted out. More on Shacknews.

Finally. PS3F’s reporting that the November edition of Qore is to contain beta invites to Home.
While this means you have to be both in America and willing to pay to get involved in Sony’s online social “thing,” the emergence of public invites surely indicates that wider access will happen this year, as Sony has constantly claimed.
The online mag will hit early next month, so keep an eye out for a European date sometime in November.

Looks as though Qore subs in the US are going to be able to gain access to the Home beta before it’s opened up to the general public.
When asked if a subscription to the PSN show was going get people in, SCEA’s Kevin Furuichi replied on the US PS Blog:
“We’re working on this for the current Extended Closed Beta. We are trying to get you guys into HOME before the official public beta.
“We hope to have more information in about two weeks.”
This had better be worth it, Sony.

The US PS Blog’s posted that the American beta for SOCOM: Confrontation will go live in America at 5.00pm PST today.
You need to be a Qore subscriber to get involved, apparently, and you need to have been so from the first episode of the Future US PSN show.
