Today, Sony announced a new promotion on the PlayStation Network, which will see the launch of new PSN exclusive games for every week in October.
The new promotion, titled "Only On PlayStation Network," will begin on October 4th, when Sony will launch Recoil Games' Rochard

, developed by Alex May, Rudolf Kremers, and Brian Grainger.
Alongside this first batch of titles, Sony will debut a handful of classic PlayStation 2 titles on PSN, including Clover Studio's God Hand
, Capcom's Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
, Konami's Ring of Red
, and Vanillaware titles GrimGrimoire
and Odin Sphere
. Each of these titles will be available for $9.99.
The following week, the promotion will feature Playbrains' Sideway: New York
and Sodium Collection
, a bundle that includes new upgrades and items for the PlayStation Home-exclusive Sodium
The week of October 18 will see the debut of Hand Circus' Okabu
and Ratloop Asia's sidescrolling action title Rocketbirds
The final week of the promotion will include Sucker Punch's InFamous: Festival of Blood

While Sony has yet to announce pricing for most of the titles in this promotion, PlayStation Plus members will receive a 20 percent discount during the launch week of each title, and in addition, users who spend $60 on PSN content in October will receive $10 of PSN credit in November.
Sony also noted that both Eufloria
come from the company's Pub Fund program, through which Sony provides funding to indie developers and published their games on PSN. Sony announced a new $20 million, three-year investment plan
for the program last July.
