Sony is continuing to take the initiative to bolster its PlayStation Network following the disastrous hack earlier this year. Not only did Sony add another $20 million this summer to a Pub Fund it started a couple years ago, but today the company announced a new "Only On PlayStation Network" program to stress its flow of exclusive gaming content.

Starting on October 4, every Tuesday in the month will see several new exclusives on PSN, including Pub Fund titles like Eufloria and Okabu, as well as inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood and PixelJunk Sidescroller. And the program will also feature a selection of "rare classic games" added to the store on October 4, including God Hand, GrimGrimoire, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, Odin Sphere and Ring of Red.

Consumers who are PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive a 20% discount during the launch week of each “Only On PSN” game. On top of that, if you spend $60 or more out of your PlayStation Network/Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) Wallet throughout the month of October, you'll be able to receive a $10 store credit towards purchases in November. This promotion isn't limited to just games - spending can be on add-ons, PlayStation Home micro-transactions, TV shows, movies, Music Unlimited subscriptions, etc.


“‘Only On PlayStation Network’ is our line of great exclusive games that users can count on to deliver exciting game experiences that can’t be found anywhere else,” said Susan Panico, senior director of PlayStation Network, SCEA. “This strong initial content offering, combined with the day one discounts for PlayStation Plus subscribers and the ‘Spend $60, Get $10 Back’ promotion, makes PlayStation Network the premier destination for digital content.”

The lineup in the program is as follows: October 4 - Eufloria and Rochard; October 11 - Sideway: New York; October 13 - Sodium Collection; October 18 - Okabu and RocketBirds; October 25 - inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood and PixelJunk Sidescroller.

IndustryGamers spoke with Susan Panico about the program and Sony's continued push for exclusives. We'll be bringing you that soon.

HD collection style? Straight software emulation? I would normally start to call BS, but people don't throw around a game like Ring of Red very often.

But no mention of Papa & Yo? I've been looking forward to that for a long time.

At the same time, I think the intention is the opposite: "If you DON'T have intentions to remaster it...".

Probably like PSone Classics: a digital manual, the game running as it is; but a few bells and whistles if you choose the smoothing/upscale/etc. options.

I'm betting straight emulation. No way these are HD with trophies and we don't get word about them except for a throw away line in a press release.

WTF?!?!?!??!?!??!?!! WHY IS THIS NOT IN THE TITLE?!

Talk about out of nowhere!!! I guess this is the start of the PS2 PSN re-releases. I take it that these are HD ports and not emulations (since the PS3 can't handle PS2 emulation)

I wonder who's porting all of these?

It won't be straight software emulation; the ps3 doesn't have the horsepower. We are talking a port.
