Sony Investing $20 Million in PSN Exclusives

Writing on the PlayStation Blog, PSN Director of Marketing Brandon Stander announced that Sony is investing $20 million in PSN exclusive games over the next three years. He cited examples such as Joe Danger, Critter Crunch, Flower and the PixelJunk series as past successes and hoped to continue the PS3's reputation for offering experiences that can't be found on other consoles.

The $20 million will be divided between Sony's own first-party studios as well as the Pub Fund which the company introduced at GDC in 2009, helping to suport independent developers with the production of their original titles.

The first games to benefit from the three year plan will be a PSN port of arty PC title Eufloria, "physics toybox" Okabu and "boy and his monster" puzzle platformer Papo & Yo.

"Under this investment, we?re committed to delivering titles that have innovative gameplay mechanics, vibrant visuals, interesting storylines and an artistic element to interactive entertainment that can only be found on PlayStation Network," writes Stander. Watch out for the new titles via the PlayStation Store soon.
