Sony has filed a trademark for something called Qriocity, which has earned the distinction of sounding even stupider than Qore. Naturally, this has set the Internet into a blaze of speculation as we all try and work out what it could mean. The current front-runner is the suggestion that it's Sony's PSN premium service, which is a solid guess.

The trademark has been filed in association with "portable gaming machines" and "game services provided online from a computer network." At this stage, it could be anything, and since it was filed by Sony and not specifically Sony Computer Entertainment, it may be linked with a whole range of products. The similarity to the "Qore" name certainly makes it sound like a PlayStation thing, though. 

Whatever it is, we may hear more about it soon. Sony has also registered Qriocity.com only a few months before filing the trademark papers. Sounds like it's a name they're very keen on using, whatever they end up using it for. 

What do you think of the name (pronounced a bit like "Curiosity") and what do you reckon it could mean?

Entwined out today for PlayStation 3 and Vita

Entwined seemed pretty exciting when Sony unveiled it at E3 last month. Then we actually played the thing, and, well, let's just say it didn't live up to expectations. At all. So, buyer beware, the gauzy debut proje...more
