Here’s a mini-FAQ for my part in Qore:
So is Rev3 involved in any way? Or are you working for both Rev3 and Sony’s Playstation unit now?
Nope! Rev3 is not involved in any way. Technically, I work for Future US, the publishers of such magazines as Playstation: The Official Magazine, PC Gamer, and MacLife. I am not a Sony employee!
Might have to give you the ol’ quizzical eye when you start talking consoles on Tekzilla.
Hah! We don’t talk about consoles very much to start with, since we’re not a gaming show, but I’ll probably recuse myself in the future from giving any major opinions. Not because I’ve stopped playing other consoles or games (trust me, I have not) but to prevent any issues from coming up with viewers.
How long can we expect the episodes to be?
We’re running about 40 minutes of video in this first episode.
Are you serious? It’s $2.99 an episode? No way! That’s robbery!
I don’t have any say over the money-making end of this machine. But considering I paid more than that for Lemmings last week at the Playstation Store…. well, it’s 40+ minutes of totally original video content with exclusives downloads bundled in. It’s not just like getting the news off a blog, trust me. I think people will enjoy it.
Do I need a PS3 to watch it?
Yes. Maybe someday we’ll be able to host the video elsewhere, but right now it’s only available on the PS3. Sorry!
Can you give us any hints on what episodes 2 and 3 have in store?
Well, there’s this. Otherwise, I don’t want to give to much away, but we’ll be looking at some major titles (and possibly taking a big trip to Europe too meet developers over there!).
Really good write-up over at VentureBeat that might answer some more of your questions.
