MotorStorm Pacific Rift in early September!

Sony has announced they will be releasing a Motorstorm: Pacific Rift demo as part of QORE, their online "magazine"(subscription) for the PlayStation Network. Those who download the upcoming episode - QORE: Episode 4 - will get access to the demo, and get to play it “a month before anyone else.

Here's some bad news for those not subscribing to QORE, they will have to endure a month long wait till the demo will then go live on PSN as a free download, and be available for all to grab about a week before the games retail release on October 7th.

Sony has somehow found a way to manage it's "free" online service; by releasing a subscription based magazine! Not pretty much "free" is it? QORE is a pay service (costing $2.99 an episode), and is currently only available in the US it will be very hard for Europeans to get their hands on the demo as QORE is not yet released in the PAL regions. Although the release date hasn't been confirmed, new episodes of QORE usually go up the first Thursday of every month. Because of this a September 4th release in likely in my opinion.
