Introducing ‘Only On PSN’ For New Exclusive Games Throughout October

We’re excited to announce a new program called “Only On PSN,” which features brand new games that are exclusively available on PlayStation Network throughout October. Every week starting tomorrow, October 4, you will find new titles, unique to PSN that are part of this program – games that you’ve likely read about here on the PlayStation Blog, or seen during our showing at E3 2011. You may recall our announcement a few months ago about our Pub Fund – a $20 million investment in exclusive PSN titles, and the Only On PlayStation Network program showcases two titles spawning from this investment: Eufloria and Okabu.

We can’t wait for you to get your hands on the Only On PSN games yourselves, so we’re giving you a few special offers throughout the course of the program. First, to sweeten the deal, we’ll be offering PlayStation Plus subscribers a 20% discount on each game during the first week of its availability.

Additionally, users who spend $60 or more out of their PlayStation Network/Sony Entertainment Network wallet through the month of October will get $10 back in November. This includes any of the Only On PSN games, purchases of games, add-ons, movies and TV shows in both the game and video sections of the PlayStation Store, your paid subscriptions for PlayStation Plus or Music Unlimited, movie rentals or purchases through Video Unlimited and any games or virtual items you buy in PlayStation Home.

Be sure to keep an eye on the PlayStation Twitter feed, as we’ll be giving away download codes for each game in the line-up every week. Don’t miss your chance to get this week’s Only On PSN games for free!

Now, let’s check out the games:

  • Very nice, Sony.

  • Sweet! Didn’t realize the release of PJ Sidescroller would be so soon! :D

  • Does the classic PS2 games have any enhancements such as trophies, higher res graphics, etc?

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      The PS2 games are in their original form. These aren’t remasters, and therefore won’t have Trophy support. But they retain their original gameplay, look, and charm through and through.

  • i get the feeling all those only on psn games will be available on psvita day 1

  • Sony just keeps adding on reasons why Plus is one of the best offers in gaming. Defiantly taking part in this.

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      Glad you’re enjoying Plus! Make sure you remember to pick up the games you’re interested in on the first week as the discount is for the first week of each game’s release

  • Sounds excellent and I am looking forward to the Playstation 2 games especially. Is there any word on how they will be priced?

  • KidCommando

    So many games, not enough time!

    Really enjoy the Plus discounts on new games.

    hmmm, will have to see if there is $60 worth of content I am interested in this month….or would I be buying random things to get $10 back. lol

  • BlindsideDork

    Rochard is already out? Or just early release for PS+?

    • Juhana "Hulu" Virtanen
      Juhana "Hulu" Virtanen

      Rochard has been out since last week. There is a demo as well for both regular and PS+ members.

  • With limited gaming time due to College… Looks like the only game that I will be able to pick up is inFAMOUS.

  • What about Europe?

  • Sounds great but it’s a shame Odin Sphere isn’t getting the HD treatment, cause frame rate and load times were the only problems with that game

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    Will the PS2 games have trophies? Will there be a section for ps2 classics or we’ll have to snoop around until we find it?

  • Very nice. Wish Festival of Blood would be out tomorrow, oh well.

  • gerneric123

    WOOT PS2 CLASSICS

    Can I spend $60 on PSP, and Minis while still getting the $10 back?

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      Yep. Spend $60 on anything in the Store. As long as you spend $60 through the month of October, you’ll get $10 back in November

  • Awesome games.

  • FellOpenIan

    Any pricing info on: “God Hand, GrimGrimoire, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, Odin Sphere and Ring of Red.”?

  • Wait your telling me I get $10 after spending $60 on anything in the store and all these games coming out in October will be 20% off… Defiantly getting inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood and Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.

  • Great promotion, I love those PS2 games..

  • Sound’s good, Really love the PS2 games

  • Hmmm lets see if theres $60 worth of stuff i will spend.

    I hope you guys are gonna be smart and have sales on a lot of PSN games that have been out for awhile. If you put the right games on sale during this month, i would have no problem spending $60 for you this month.

  • gerneric123

    Destructoid confirms the PS2 Classics will be $9.99 each!

  • WTF, PS2 Classics!? Does this service do well in Japan?

  • wooow! you’re making me spend over $50 tomorrow!!! :(
    nba jam
    eufloria
    odin sphere
    grimgrimoire
    crysis
    god hand
    maximo
    chrono trigger
    gotta get that $50 PSN card, still wont trust you with my debit card.

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      all good. Getting the $50 retail card will add the funds to your wallet, so as long as you spend $60 in the Store, whether you add your funds with purchased cards or direct through the Store, you’ll be all set.

  • PS2 Classics is too big a deal to be put merely at the end of a blog post focusing on other things. Should really be trumpeting that in its own blog – it’s long awaited news!

  • that’s amazing. PS2 FTW

  • Ok, but what kind of visual treatment does the PS2 classics get? Or are they merely upscaled like the PSone Classics?

  • oh yeah, PS Plus rocks! i only paid for 3 months (until december 2011) for $18 and i already saved over $50 on PSN and its only the first month lol. will definitely subscribe forever.

  • Still don’t understand why Pixel Junk doesn’t make another Monsters game grrr!

  • When will Shane Bettenhausen make his debut blog post :D

  • Loving Ps+ not only does it save me so much i get to have games for free, too many games with too little time

  • I’m definitely getting Infamous: FoB and Okabu. And why aren’t the PS2 games getting more promotion? There is only one line in the article that I almost skipped over :P I’ll be getting God Hand for sure.

  • Hydrogen_Otter

    God Hand and Maximo on PSN…mother of god.

    I JUST upgraded to Plus on Saturday, looks like I picked just the right time eh? :D :D :D

  • Excalibur0123

    So does this mean we will start to see more PS2 games on the PSN Store? :D

  • More PS2 games on PSN please (or bring back PS2 playback to a PS3 please) :P
    + could you imagine having every PS1 + PS2 game on PSN? That would give SONY so much money LoL(i know it is impossible to do or is it?)

  • Was this the huge reveal on October 5th that the video last week was referencing? If so this is majorly disappointing.

    Way to get your fans hopes as usual Sony only to crush them.

  • Any news on PS Rewards? Miss that program :(

  • Francision69

    I can’t wait to start spending like crazy when the new games roll out!

  • PS2 games?! OMG that’s awesome! Definitely looking forward to GrimGrimoire. That was just such an amazing gem.

  • PS2 DD games? So if I have a disc version can I play it?

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      No, these are PS2 titles that will be available from the PlayStation Store starting 10/4.

  • Any news on the price range of the PS2 titles?

  • If I spend $120 do I get $20 back?

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      No, the reward is only for the $60 threshold. The $10 back will be coming to you in November if you spend $60 or more.

  • Tell yeah!!! I love that we get an incentive to shop! I think I should be able to hit the $60 mark with games! Does Rochard count if I buy it this week?

  • what if you already own rochard does that still count for October? cause i already have it.

    • Morgan Haro
      Morgan Haro

      I’m afraid that it’s only for purchases made in the month of October. Rochard is certainly one of the highlighted games for Only On PSN, but fort he Buy $60 get $10 celebration, that’s for October purchases only.

  • Fantastic. What a great incentive for being a gamer!

  • Shadow-Man_4

    Wow, I have a $100 in store for those great games! =)

  • Painkiller360

    I WANT SOCOM 1- CA SONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • also is payday still coming out tomorrow?

  • magicfan345

    For some reason I’m no longer able to see the titles/headlines and dates at the top of each post on playstation blog, just white space above each post… wonder why that is ?

  • ez_____ez_____ez

    I wish there was a Spongebob game for PS3. My kids love him.

  • PSN should start letting customers pre-order more downloadable content like they do with “Payday: The Heist”. I want to pre-order Infamous: Festival of Blood.
