Sony Introduces the 'Only On PSN' Range

With Sony investing $20 million to bring a range of PS3 exclusive games to the PlayStation Network, the platform holder has today unveiled the 'Only On PSN' program and a host of new titles set to release on the PlayStation Store throughout October.

Every week from tomorrow onwards, there'll be new games popping up for you to download, including the intriguing Okabu and Eufloria. PlayStation Plus members will get a 20% discount on the 'Only On PSN' titles during the first week on sale, whereas anyone who spends $60 from their PSN wallet in October will get $10 back in November. This is across all purchases.

Here's what you can look forward to from the Only On PSN range this month:

October 4:

  • Eufloria – An addictive ambient game of space exploration and conquest, plant growth and bio-mechanical evolution. Explore a beautifully realized universe rendered in a style that is unique and compelling. Conquer asteroids in deep space and use their resources to literally grow and nurture semi-organic plants and creatures to do your bidding.
  • Rochard – A fun and original space adventure game that features a resourceful hero, ominous villains, rugged machinery, big explosions, even bigger stunts and sharp one-liners. The game tests players’ coordination and wits as they use gravity to their advantage, changing it at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level.

October 11:

  • Sideway: New York – Help defeat Spray, a sinister tagger who wants to dominate both Sideway and the real world in this unique sidescroller that offers you the chance to leave your mark on the city.

October 13:

  • Sodium Collection – A more than $35 value available for $9.99, this PlayStation Home value pack includes the SodiumOne Pilot’s Jacket, which unlocks the full 50-level tank combat Salt Shooter game, and weapon upgrades for your SodiumOne tank. Also included is a variety of upgrades for Sodium 2: Project Velocity, a high-speed, free-to-play, futuristic multiplayer racing game exclusive to PlayStation Home, and the wildly-popular Blaster’s Paradise personal space, which hosts a tabletop version of Salt Shooter. Buy from the PlayStation Store and play in PlayStation Home.

October 18:

  • Okabu – An action-puzzler, where players will guide Kumulo, Nimbe and four cloud-flying heroes as they battle to save their people and their world from the industrialized threat of the Doza. Dive into a hyper-tactile toybox world filled with a huge number of puzzles, playthings, adorable creatures and devious machines spread across an epic co-op campaign.
  • RocketBirds: Hardboiled Chicken – Annihilate an evil penguin regime in this cinematic platform adventure game offering full solo and co-op campaigns with stereoscopic 3D support. Destroy enemies with a slew of weapons and illuminate the secrets to his past while uncovering the real enemies of Albatropolis.

October 25:

  • inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood – Vampires swarm New Marais, and revered superhero Cole MacGrath has been bitten. To save his soul and city, he has just one night to find and kill the head vampire. Featuring hours of new gameplay, themed environment settings and new characters/enemies, Festival of Blood explores the darker side of the inFAMOUS universe.
  • PixelJunk Sidescroller – Q-Games goes old-school with a completely retro side-scrolling shooter that reinvents the genre from the ground up while maintaining that nostalgic feeling. Dodge flurries of alien bullets and strategically upgrade weapons while battling through sweeping stages full of hazardous fluid and endless shooting mayhem.

Also from tomorrow, you can get your hands on some rare and under-appreciated PS2 classics, such as God Hand, GrimGrimoire, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, Odin Sphere and Ring of Red. Lovely stuff! Check out the Only On PSN trailer below for a glimpse at the treats in store.

Infamous: festival of blood "only on PSN" ?
Always thought I could pick it up on disc version.
Hope Infamous: festival of blood fits on my 40 GB PS3.
How much space will it take ?
How much will it cost ?
I want it so bad, but I got to buy Infamous 2 too.

Festival Of Blood is Infamous 2 DLC, not standalone, if I'm wrong someone please correct me!
This has me stoked! Are we getting PS2 classics finally? Woot!

I know I can't be the only one who thinks most of those sound pretty bad.

IMO PSN should have a welcome back package every week FTW

If they are going to be releasing PS2 games on the PS Store, does that mean we can finally use PS2 discs in our PS3 slims?! I would be so happy if this is the case (it saves me $60 of buying a used PS2 Slim). If it works with PS1 games then it should work with PS2 games (hopefully) :)

2@ inFAMOUS 2 is stand alone.Meaning? inFAMOUS 2 is not required in the hard drive to play it and you will never see it in walmart or gamestop in a box.

6@ As I said before,it is a stand alone.You don't need the game and it is not coming out as DLC ever!!! Think this game like the Dead Rising 2 Stand alones:Case:0 and Case:West from xbox.(Really which does 2 games could have been on PS3.)

Oh crap. God Hand?! I always wanted to play that game and never got around to it. That's the best news. Also, I've got so much crap to buy I might even hit $60. Good news indeed.

rochard came out on eu psn last wednesday, so wait are you saying once again eu users get screwed over??? oh surely this can't be true..... The sarcasm meter just went off the scale.
$60 translates to about £35-£40... so far this month i've spent £45... i bet i don't see any money back come november though, as i suspect will be the case

I have to agree, we always get screwed, just hopping we get some of this here though (those PS2 classics look like a nice option to get games I missed on PS2!)

Hmmm....Renegade Ops, Dead Block, InFamous: FoB, Blockus, Limbo, Planet Minigolf, Press your luck, price is right, Spleunker, Linger in Shadows....nvm, I think I have enough :P Y'know, I wish PSN would have a wish list kinda thing going on.

I also just thought of this but when they say we'll get $10 back, do they mean that we'll get a $10 credit to our PSN wallet or we'll get $10 off whatever we buy next month. Anyone know?

Well, if you were planning on getting a bunch of games this month through the psn - then it's not a bad deal. Like if you were picking up HD releases or something...

Eufloria is also on the PC, I don't know how they can say it's only on PSN unless there is additional content which is missing from the PC version.

Anyone know if the $10 cashback in November will be credited directly to our PSN wallet or will it be a discount for what we buy in November?

Also, Is there a price for Infamous: Festival of Blood yet? I loved the first one and this would be perfect to get in the Halloween spirit :)
