Keep in mind that the Qore price ($2.99 for one episode, $24.99 for a 1 year subscription) is introductory and will probably go up.

BTW this is one of the best updates of all times in terms of content.

Heh, Sony ponied up for a God of War GH3 track just like MS did with Halo. That's pretty cool.

Good demos this week, and I'm semi interested in Qore. I wish you could get some sort of free preview first.

actually sounds like a good week. I'm sure I can find better uses on WiiWare/XBL/Valve for my $3 than propaganda however.

You can buy Qore and you get in.

I also really want to know how good Novastrike is. It looked nice from the video.

I know I'm definitely getting Novastrike and the first issue of Qore. I'll also be giving Battlefield a spin.

As for the banner WOW that was pretty hard. I almost gave up.

Also SOCOM beta isn't up today only the invites are being given away.

the first episode or the sub?
Either one.

Our premier episode will be available on Thursday, June 5. The premier episode includes in-depth exclusive and never-before released content on upcoming PlayStation titles such as SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Secret Agent Clank, Soul Calibur 4 and Afro Samurai, as well as the latest Blu-ray Disc trailers, an exclusive SOCOM: Confrontation theme with an invitation to the SOCOM: Confrontation beta, art galleries and other surprises. We also know that many of you are big fans of Veronica Belmont, the widely-known host of numerous online video programs and podcasts and an avid gamer, so we’ve chosen her to be your host.

Tiny wrestlers. I mean...tiny.

When has there been a PSN update that was this good, in terms of breadth?

novastrike looks outstanding. hoping there is a demo for it.
From the blog:

Presently there isn’t a demo, but it’s something we have on our to-do list. I agree that it’s nicer when games initially have demos, though - we unfortunately had to put all our effort into first releasing the title (being a small team and going through everything that needs to be done to self-publish a game). We will be looking into a demo, though.

Well this is certainly an improvement over last week's shit, and we don't even have the full list yet.

I also hope Novastrike has a demo, I'm not keen on buying something like that without being able to play it first. But I doubt it, sadly.

Probably gonna get Novastrike if my CC still works with the US Store.
Also, I see it (first time I see it without needing people pointing it out, woot!).

It won't have a demo. DMPrince copy/pasted some of the Devs quotes in the Novastrike thread where they say it is on their to-do list tho http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=11465437&postcount=78

There is a closed SOCOM beta and an open one.

The open SOCOM beta is what the Qore issue is for. There is no date on when that is going out.

I have no idea when the closed beta is going up. Do you have some info saying that the closed beta is going up today?

You could just wait for impressions from people who purchased it. It's is only $10 so I expect a few people will get grabbing it.
Right, I know I'll be buying most of the stuff today, and will try to report back. Won't happen for another 10 hours or so, though...

Coming to US also: NASCAR 09 demo.
Link: http://playstationlifestyle.net/2008/06/04/civilization-revolution-joins-the-demo-party-this-thursday-on-the-psn/
Not that many of you cared.
Especially if you are ambi-turners.

Alternate link:
EA Sports' NASCAR 09 Website

"Demo Available
Demo currently available on Xbox™ LIVE Marketplace. Available via Sony PLAYSTATION® Network June 5th."


One last note: Novastrike --> NOVASTRIKE. Tiki Games' President actually forgot to capitalize it on the blog. Not a big deal, but just trying to help.

Yeah I'll probably keep my eye on the official thread. Or I can just blindly buy it like I did Stardust, that turned out okay. :D
