PlayStation Store Update: Metal Gear Solid 4 Demo, Qore Episode 6 and LittleBigPlanet DLC

It's the highest-profile update to Sony's online marketplace since last week: Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Solid 4, which is no doubt a PlayStation 3 exclusive, has emerged in demo form. Players who haven't taken a shot at Hideo Kojima's cinematic stealth-action magnum opus are highly encouraged to do so.

Also appearing is Episode 6 of Qore, Sony's digitally-downloaded video magazine. In this issue is a look at Tokyo and a look at the Home beta you'll have access to--if you bought an annual subscription before the end of October.

Per Thursday tradition, here's the full update list from Sony:


Qore Episode 06: November, 2008 ($2.99 for episode / $24.99 for Annual Subscription)
Episode 06 of Qore: Presented by the PlayStation Network travels to Tokyo to take an up-close look at the gaming culture, but still keeps things close to "Home" with an exclusive peek at the new virtual community.

    Do I have to pay for Core to try this demo? I refuse to spell it with a Q because I'm edgy

      No, you don't. The demo is free.

      Also, if you see a Qore-only demo in the future, create a UK PSN account and check their PSN store. I got the Valkyria Chronicles demo as soon as it came out that way, without having to waste money on Qore.
