Qore Episode 12 – Featuring Batman: Arkham Asylum, DiRT 2, Ghostbusters and Euphoria

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on May 06, 2009 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

If you’re interested in busting the Joker, busting a tire, busting ghosts or busting a tackle, we’ve got you covered this month! We’re also excited to announce that Qore annual subscribers are invited to the upcoming UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves multiplayer Beta (see details below).

Enter the Asylum
Arkham Asylum. It’s the place where Batman’s most psychotic foes are kept under lock and key…at least, until the Joker takes control. Developer Rocksteady Games brings us inside the Gotham City landmark—the location of their upcoming game.

Who You Gonna Call?
It may have been twenty years since the Ghostbusters last strapped on their proton packs, but the films have not been forgotten. Audrey Cleo catches up with Dan Aykroyd about his contributions as writer and voice actor in the new game that’s revitalized the beloved franchise.

Take a Spin
Veronica Belmont also visits Codemasters in the UK for an early look at the next iteration in its DiRT rally racing series evolving the gameplay with improved handling and new stadium events.

Natural Co-Motion
Euphoria, developed to create extremely realistic character AI and animation in upcoming games such as Backbreaker, will change the way you play– foregoing canned animation for real-time interaction. We take a close look at this new technology.

Everyone who downloads Qore this month will receive an exclusive inFAMOUS PS3 “Good Karma” theme that, like the game’s main character, evolves over time. New Qore subscribers will also receive High Velocity Bowling as our way of saying thanks.

Great News for Subscribers!
All existing Qore subscribers will also receive a special voucher via e-mail allowing them to join the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves multiplayer Beta on June 3. Everyone who becomes a new Qore subscriber on or before May 15 will also receive the Beta invitation.

This Beta is just one of the many benefits offered to Qore subscribers during this inaugural year. And, as a reminder for our June 2008 subscribers, you still have one more episode coming your way after May’s Episode 12 to complete your 13-episode subscription.

Look for Qore Episode 12 available tomorrow, Thursday May 7.

A beta entry! Not that is the kind of thing I like to see for the annual subscribers! Thanks Qore! Looks like some great content this time around too.

How about a Qore T-shirt in Home for subscribers as well? It is just a thought Kevin.

A little slow to start this year, but you guys are picking up steam and I’ll be happy to renew when it comes around.

Can i make a suggestion for the free games with subscriptions, can u have a choice with 3-4 games, i already have many of the games they are offering. My subscription will end soon. Just a suggestion

Like a previous poster said, thank you guys for letting us in on the Uncharted MP. I am not excited about inFamous at all. Maybe I will in the future, but I was a bit disappointed that I had to buy that game to join the Uncharted beta, up until now.

I feel better about being an annual subscriber and will renew because of this one reason alone.

i have a couple of questions about qore. First i am a new subscriber and i waiting for the may episode. second it says you will get your own qore section on playstation store where you can download games and demos. So where is that section? Finaly i wonder do i have to pay for the previous episodes, it says they cost 2,99 dollars but i am a subscriber now and i did not think thank you have to pay for old episodes. I will be very pleased if anyone can explain all this for me.

    You should be able to DL the May ep today. The special section of the Store is actually only accessible through the Qore DL center.

    As for back issues, like a regular print magazine, we don\’t provide you access to previous episodes. Your new subscription runs for the next 13 months.

    Hope that helps. And, welcome to Qore!

Hello. I have a quick question. I’m strongly considering purchasing the PSN Qore subscription. I hopped on the PSN store just a short while ago, though for the life of me, I’m not seeing episode 12. Is there some browser cache on the PS3 or something that needs to be cleared, or has Sony just not had the chance to post the content in my region yet? FYI, I’m in the U.S. (midwest region). Thanks guys

    Hmmm, it should be visible in PlayStation Store in both the New Releases and Media section. The store usually publishes in the afternoon West Coast time. Hope you check back tonight!

As a qore subscriber, i think i’ll renew it at the end of the year. The resistance 2 BETA, and now the uncharted 2 BETA, is worth enough to renew. Not to mention all the free psn games.

I plan to renew my Qore subscription. But I hope there will be support for the Blu Ray remote in the future. I like to watch Qore and videos while i’m on the exercise bike and holding a game controller is.. well just wrong..

I’m also really liking Pulse. Pulse should get promotion on network tv or cable tv.

silly question cause i know the geniuses at sony marketing have thought about promoting Pulse and Qore during all Sony Pictures Movie showings in the movies during the trailers? right? maybe a ps3 in someone’s home in a movie?

you know like Michael Bay loves Blu Ray, maybe Sony and Michael Bay can can work on a blu ray/ps3/qore/pulse strategy.. michael bay exclusive commentary on qore/pulse?

damn it sony open some new york offices so i can apply for a job. LOL

Just a quick comment about episode 12 (and the rest of Qore as well, I suppose): Why are the interviews so short? You guys advertised the huge interview with Dan Aykroyd, and yet his segment was about 2 minutes long with the entire Ghostbusters video being about 5 minutes long. Did you guys really go all the way over there to ask 5 or 6 quick questions? If you’re already there, why not ask more questions?

Each interview in this episode is 5 minutes long, (I didn’t watch the Dirt video, I admit) and this has been the norm for a while now. Why can’t we have more thorough interviews? You already have them in front of you. Ask some more questions. Any questions!

Having said that, I still like Qore, and will most likely renew my subscription. But I honestly think many people would appreciate more comprehensive interviews instead of 5 question segments. Thanks for reading.

    The Manda,

    Thanks for the questions. Audrey was supposed to get :30 minutes with Dan, but he was running late and could spend :10 minutes with us. (We just assumed he was on his way for a tee time with Bill Murray.) He was great ans we were just honored that he recognized the importance of making time for the PlayStation Qore audience.

    Thanks for the constructive comments. We hear you and look to include more in the future.

The beta hasn’t begun yet, so you can’t use the code. The email should tell you when it begins, and when you can use the code. Just hold onto the code (don’t delete it!), and look forward to June (whenever the beta starts). See you there!

Hi, I’ve just received your email with UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta voucher code inside.

But when I enter it on the Playstation Store Redeem Code section, here’s what I get :

The code you entered may note be correct or may no longer be valid.

Please check your entries.

I checked and re-checked the code, entered it with correct case-sensitive letters but it still won’t work.

Any info on this issue ?

I have not received a single one of the Qore vouchers in my e-mail and have been sent in circles for hours trying to get one each time there is supposed to be one. Unfortunately, I have received only one: the SOCOM beta three days before it ended. And before anyone asks, I have been an annual subscriber since Qore began. Any solutions for me, Qore?

+ krae_man on May 8th, 2009 at 8:50 pm said:

@ Pitichat_US

Read your email, the beta doesn’t go live till June 3rd. You cant download it till then.

@Soseki

Sony’s line is: Check your spam folder and check your PSN settings to make sure you allow Sony to send your notifications.

After Qore download codes go out. Sony’s email customer service is supposed to have access to a master list all the codes and who they were sent to.

So, you’re supposed to email Sony and say “Hi, I’m so and so. My email address is *email here* and my PSN name is *PSN name* and I havn’t got my download code for *game X*

Then, what’s supposed to happen is the Sony Email rep checks the master list and if your name is on it, they give you the corresponding code.

Unfortunately, Sonys’ email customer service is disgracefully bad and the chances of you getting the issue resolved quickly is slim to none.
