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 and the indie title Eufloria, 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 series.

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 and Q-Games' PixelJunk Sidescroller.

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 and Okabu 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.

God Hand. <3 God Hand. You know what to do! Wonder if these digital PS2 releases will be playable on the Vita? God Hand on the go? Yes please!

Eufloria is a PC-first game, it's been on Steam for a long time now. So it's not "Only On PSN".

Curious to see if stuff like load times and slowdown will be improved with the PSN versions of these PS2 games.

Great success! Now I can pay $10 to download all my PS2 games I already bought when they were new, but won't run on the PS3.



May I have some spyware with these downloads too please?



I hate you so much Sony.
