For indie titles published directly under the Sony Computer Entertainment label, the top sellers were PixelJunk Shooter 2 and Titan Studios' Fat Princess, along with Flower by thatgamecompany.
According to Sony...
"For some newer, smaller teams who have creative and innovative ideas, SCEA also has the Pub Fund, which provides additional development budget for those teams that might not otherwise have the footing to make their game a reality."... "We've committed $20 million over the next three years to the Pub Fund because we believe this visionary and unique development mindset will ultimately advance and evolve PSN games as an art form."
