More Details on the “Only on PSN” Program


Sakinah has already mentioned the great news about select PS2 titles being released on the PSN for all to enjoy and now we have more information on the Full Program itself.

A LOT of PSN exclusive games have been secured for the month of October (remember Sony mentioned that they were working to get more content on the PSN Store?) and there is definitely something to be made available for every type of gamer out there. More on Oly’s homework list after the jump.


.

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.

And HOW exactly are we supposed to be able to buy them all and STILL have money for food, rent, cthulhu, gas, clothes and other forms of entertainment? Well, Sony has been kind enough as to think of all us PS+ subscribers and has made it so ANY of the games listed above can be bought at a 20% discount during its first week of release! AND iF we spend $60 on the PSN Store during October we’ll get a $10 credit during November to buy even MORE games, DLC, Avatars, Themes, TV Episodes or Movies!

What are you buying in October and how fast can you get a PS+ subscription?

    I’ll be honest, no downloadable game (old or new) has any chance against all the big fishes coming during October and November.

    Even I, a person who’s just stocking games until next year, won’t have the time (or desire) to play any of those. I’ll be playing only Dark Souls and Skyrim for the rest of the year (and possibly longer than that)…

    @Pedro: GrimGrimoire and Odin Sphere deserve your $20. Red Ring is sorta like Valkyria Chronicles on PS3 and worth your money.

    Now, on the exclusives this month? We’ll have reviews on all of them and right now I can tell everyone that Rochard is awesome and well worth the asking price (even better with the PS+discount starting today) and Eufloria seems to be a very unique title worth our attention (so at least download the demo and give it a try!).

    Just with all the PS2 classics (if they’re actually done right emulation-wise) I’ll be at $40 so I’ll find something to cover the extra $20 (now would be a GREAT time for Sony to give us some discounted PSX options. Dino Crisis 1 and 2 would help) to get my free $10 cashback.

    I’m certain the games are great, that’s not what I meant. I just don’t think they’re better than Dark Souls, Skyrim, Uncharted, Batman and the likes… so I don’t see many people getting them, because they’ll have so much to play.

    There are so many great PS2 games I’d love to see get re-released. Nothing on this list interest me though.

    Is the PSN Only campaign just for October or will it be on going?

    @Sakinah: So far it’s an october thing. My guess is Sony will just make the “Only on PSN” pop back every other month once they’re SURE they’ve got at least one PSN exclusive for each week. We also have PSN Play floating around, Spring Fever for March and so on so there’s a lot for them to choose from.

    Cool. Something to look forward to.
