This month Sony will be rolling out a promotion called "Only On PSN." Throughout October, PSN will be providing a steady stream of exclusive, downloadable games for you.
"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," said PSN senior director Susan Panico on the PlayStation.Blog. "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."
Only On PSN kicks off tomorrow with strategy game Eufloria and puzzle-platformer Rochard. You can read more about Rochard our Gaming Blend's review. Here's the full schedule of PSN releases for the month:
