Qore, the video on demand service on PlayStation 3, was never a great idea to begin with. With the bar set as low as it was for Qore, it was hard to imagine that it could get much worse. It has gotten worse.
The video portion of the service is still performing mildly admirably. This month’s Qore has decent videos on Fallout: New Vegas, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and Dead Rising 2. Where Qore has really taken a nose dive is the downloadable extras section.
This month’s downloads may be the worst offering ever made by any download service. The first download is a Subway Sandwich for PlayStation Home. That’s right, your Home avatar can carry around a sub sandwich. Seriously. The next item that you can download for free, is a Veronica Belmont theme. I had no idea who that was before I started writing this article. Apparently, she is the host of Qore and Tekzilla.
Qore costs $25 per year, unless you are paying $50 a year for PlayStation Plus. Qore has always been a bad idea, but this is a new low.
