Qore Episode 6 Features "In-World Tour" Of PlayStation Home
We're here to provide you with up-to-date PlayStation-related news, and we work very hard to deliver on a daily basis. But now that I have the obligatory self-plug out of the way, I should point you in the direction of Qore, the online magazine of sorts for the PlayStation Network. It's Episode 6 that really might intrigue you...
In Ep. 6, host Veronica Belmont and PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser will take you on a virtual "in-world tour" of the upcoming online community. For those of you who didn't get into the closed beta (and the rest of us are still waiting for the open beta), this will be your first look at Home, and that ought to be plenty of incentive to give Episode 6 your due attention. But they'll also take an inside look at Japan's widespread cosplay culture (should be eye-opening), show you the latest for Need for Speed: Undercover (stay tuned for our hands-on impressions!), and there's even a mention of new PS3 exclusive downloadable content. But it's the little tour of Home that has piqued our interest as it should yours, because it's kinda like a demo for a blockbuster title. We're still patiently waiting for an official launch date for Home, but in the meantime, why not take advantage of this offer and get an early look now?
By the way, in case you need reminding, the most recent release date rumor says the open beta for Home will launch on November 19. It seems plausible at this point, but for now, we're not willing to bet the farm on it.
