Sony has announced a new $20 million, three-year investment plan that will see more PlayStation Network exclusive games released from both first-party studios and independent developers. The financial support will, in part, be put into the company's Pub Fund program, first announced back at the Game Developers Conference in 2009, that strives to help independent developers publish their games via the PlayStation Network. As part of the fund, developers keep the game's IP and choose the pricing, while SCEA helps with the game design and marketing plans for the title. Several upcoming titles are set to benefit from the new investment plan, including Eufloria, Okabu, Payday: The Heist and Papo & Yo. Brandon Stander, director of PlayStation Network marketing at SCEA, noted, "PlayStation Network is poised to deliver an enviable line-up of exclusive and imaginative games this year, with highly anticipated first-party titles like thatgamecompany’s Journey and PixelJunk Sidescroller." "We’re doubling down on PlayStation Network software, and under this additional investment over the next three years, we anticipate a steady flow of high-quality titles that can’t be found anywhere else."
