In July, Sony announced that it had invested $20 million into its Pub Fund as part of a three-year deal aimed at bulking up the PlayStation Network game lineup. Now, the Japanese game giant is rolling out a new "Only On PSN" program, highlighting some of the fruits of that investment.
The Only On PSN promotion will see new games exclusive to the PlayStation Network every week in October. Sony lists the program as launching tomorrow with the release of Rochard and Eufloria. However, Rochard actually debuted on the PlayStation Store last week.
Sony did not announce prices for any games in the series, but it did note that PlayStation Plus subscribers will enjoy a 20 percent discount on all wares during their first week on sale. Further, Sony noted that those who spend $60 or more from their PSN/Sony Entertainment Network wallet in October will be awarded $10 in November.
In addition to the PSN originals, the Only On PSN program will see the debut of downloadable PlayStation 2 games on the PlayStation 3. The first five games included in the program will be Clover Studio's brawler God Hand, VanillaWare's action strategy GrimGrimoire and action role-playing game Odin Sphere, Konami's tactics game Ring of Red, and Capcom's 3D Ghosts 'n Goblins spin-off Maximo: Ghosts to Glory. Sony did not detail prices for the Only On PSN originals or the PS2 rereleases.
The complete October release schedule is as follows:
Rochard (released September 27)
Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
Ring of Red
Sideway: New York
RocketBirds: Hardboiled Chicken
Infamous: Festival of Blood
