PlayStation Plus's premium service on the PS3 is largely just an upgrade from Sony's existing Qore service, so what about those who've already paid for Qore? They'll get nada.
Ever since Sony unveiled its PlayStation Plus service at last week's E3, many people have been calling it just a modified version of the services available in Qore. Although at its "core" (sorry for that), it was just a digital magazine, Sony pushed its value as a way to get into exclusive betas, access free games, and get a bunch of content.

That's really what PlayStation Plus is turning into, but it promises more of that kind of content. So people have been wondering if Sony would offer a discount to Plus for existing Qore subscribers, especially considering one of the benefits of Plus is free monthly episodes of Qore.

However, Sony has finally answered that question in response to a comment on the official PlayStation blog.

Sony's Susan Panico wrote, "We realize that some Qore subscribers will also want to subscribe to PlayStation Plus. We are sure that you will find there is a ton of great content, special deals and cool features in PS Plus and recongize that adding Qore is a bonus for Plus users and not the main contraction."

PlayStation Plus will cost users $50 for an annual subscription. Qore, by the way, is $25.
