  • Great update! Is the 2.40 out again BTW?

  • I was hoping for something Civ Rev related. YES! And Killzone 2?

  • Qore should be pretty good this week. That being said other then that this week is kind of bland.

    Also is there any chance that the PSP will get trophies too some day.

  • ok…. I was really hoping for some patches though… like uncharted or something new….. I know its not going to be in store updates, but I was just hoping :(

  • whatisdelicious

    Sweet. Been waiting for the next Qore.

  • Ok, so how to we download Qore if we bought the Annual subscription???

    • Jeff Rubenstein

      Annual subscribers simply need to go to their download lists when the latest Episode of Qore goes live (scheduled for the 1st Thursday of every month, with the weekly PlayStation Store update) and they will find the Episode is ready and waiting.

      Sign-in to the PLAYSTATION Network
      Enter the PlayStation Store through the XMB
      Go to “View Downloads”
      Find the current Episode of Qore on your download list and begin downloading

  • ……QORE and thats it?

    I knew it PIXEL JUNK EDEN delayed =(

  • If I bought the year subscription how do I download the second episode? I mean does the PSN know I bought the subscription?

  • I don’t get the “Don’t press L2” thing :/ care to explain?

  • Nice Update, Thanks Gracie. You rock!!

  • Anyhow QORE looks great

  • Patriotsbball5460

    i dont like the demo in this qore episode so no qore for me

  • No WipEout HD? And a dissapointing episode 2 of qore… I was reluctant to subscribe, but did out of good faith. You guys are lucky there’s no refunds.

  • Thanks for the update Jeff. I found it, but man was it far down on the list. Anyway to change it to the current episode is on the top of the list. As of right now it looks like it will be stuck with a date of 6/06/08 on it. I can’t imagine searching for it 6 months from now lol.

  • Thanks Noel for the PSP PSN theme I requested. Question: Is the Internet Search Icon supposed to be a white circle? just wanted to check, cause mine is

    • There are two new ones for two of the new features: the Trophy icon and the Search icon. Unfortunately, since these and all previous Themes were created before, they do not have the unique / skinned icons. I\’m working on this for all upcoming Themes, however, and will update the \”How-To\”\’s with the new code when I\’m able to.
      Glad you like the PSP Theme. People asked for it, people got it! ;-)

  • Nice, marching your way to be like XBL aren’t ya?

  • You guys should have come up with a better way to handle the downloading for the annual subscription version of Qore.
    How is one suppose to know that they have to go to the Download List?

    And when you do go there, depending on your activity level on the store, it may not even show up in the first [page].


  • hey where is the rainbow six vegas 2 map pack??

  • @#9It means PRESS L2!! ;)

    There was a sweet little mini game in the last episode.

  • What? No demos? No new games? Where the heck is Elefunk? It was supposed to be out in June and now it’s July with no Elefunk in sight.

  • @6

    Go to your Download List in the store and look for the Qore annual subscription. Should be two of them, one is June and the other is July. The July issue is the new one (it’s 1758MB).

  • The only thing holding me back from subscribing to Qore is Calling All Cars – I already have it. Any word on if you can swap games or get credit?

  • Retrogameplayer

    Not a bad update. Downloading my new issue of Qore now :)

  • Killzone2 Trailer:

    Is this NEW or the one from GAMERS DAY???

    Is it the one with the logo taking up 90% of the teaser?

    • The Killzone 2 Trailer is an HD version of the trailer shown at Gamer\’s Day.
      Hope that answers your question!

  • I bought Qore

    The R2 and naruto things made it a must buy

  • about time.. off topic.. for those who successfully updated to 2.4 (so did I btw on a 60gig) have you noticed streaming vids on youtube extremely laggy?

  • This is for you if you got the “Annual Sub”,

    Go to the Playstation Store, and then to View Downloads. You should see the July 2008 Issue ready to download. :)

  • Decent update, not great but better than the one we got in Europe anyway.

    So Jeff, any updates on the FW 2.40? Will it be back up before the weekend?

  • How am I supposed to Download Qore if I have a yearly subscription?

    Why isn’t this explained any where clearly for the people that don’t frequent the blog? God.

  • dont press L2 guys ok. its a glitch that will instantly spawn an awesome minigame.

  • 30

    are you being sarcastic? Cause I heard that minigame in Qore SUCKED

  • What a crappy update, if you want a DEMO you have to pay (for Qore), firmware 2.40 is missing in action without a single update of the situation. wow SONY, I hope someday you get your act together…

  • @29, I had the same question. Check post number 6

  • @ 31

    I think they are going to do a different minigame each episode. I’ll let you know for sure in about 5 hours when Qore finishes downloading lol

  • When is 2.4 and SSHD 4.0 update coming back up? Get your act together.

  • @radloh

    Dude they are trying there best, they dont have to give us anything, they are doing it for free.

    Also QORE is well worth it,

  • @7
    Pixel Junk Eden was never announced for this week.Probably this month.The review/debug copies are out so probably before the end of the month.

  • cool but wat bout 2.40 i have yet to download it

  • PSN Cards, where are u !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • hi i want to resport that the firmware 2.40 has made my ps3 fans sounds really louder when playing a dvd.please, grace-san pass this to eric lempel,thanks

  • @32

    I think the demos included in Qore will be timed exclusives,not unlike what Official Xbox Magazine does. After a bit, the exclusive demos in Qore will more than likely be available to non-subscribers.

    At least that’s what I’m hoping Sony will do, it is the smart thing to do

  • Nice Update, but please tell me the ads in Qore are skipable now, or at least will be in the near future.

  • Oh wait! 2.40 is back people!!!!

  • oh ye and guys QORE IS THE DEMO FOR THIS WEEK
    Naruto Demo HELLO!!!! just pay for it.

  • i wish i had qore but can buy it beacuse im under 18.

  • Why not a bundle of Super Stardust and one Add-on? It has been released a year ago and it should be by now …

  • more ps1 games!

  • @44

    No, it’s not.

  • Jeff, Any Idea if we Europeans get something like Qore?

    It’s bloody awesome, and cheap too!
