Sony (NYSE: SNE) is planning to launch its own online PS3/PSP games magazine, filling a gap in official online news for its consoles. Sony Computer Entertainment America last week applied for the trademark on “Qore” – an “interactive online magazine and entertainment services in the field of video games”. We reckon this could be an extension to the licence Future Publishing (LSE: FUTR) has to publish Sony’s Official Playstation Magazine

Future has counted Sony amongst its long-term official licensors in Europe for several years and took the US contract from Ziff-Davis in January 2007. But there are no online components – the US counterpart site psmonline.com has been mothballed and Future’s gamesradar.com takes content only from its own portfolio of mags, not the official console titles. Also unclear – whether Qore will launch on the web or on Playstation’s upcoming Home network, for example.
