Sony to fund PlayStation Network exclusive games

Posted on Saturday, March 28 2009 @ 02:00:07 CET by

Sony announced at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this week that it will launch a new scheme to give game developers an incentive to create exclusive games for the PlayStation 3 console's PlayStation Network. The company said its Pub Fund will match the development of any self-published game on the PlayStation Network in exchange for platform exclusivity:
The Pub Fund will see Sony committing to match the development budget of any self-published game on the PlayStation Network in exchange for platform exclusivity. It's not been clarified whether these self-published titles under the Pub Fund will be exempt from the current bandwidth fees that charges developers 16 cents per gigabyte downloaded.

"It's all very well for us as platform holders to say 'put all your money into PlayStation Network, it's a fantastic idea', but are we prepared to put or money where our mouth is? The answer is yes," Chris Eden, Sony's development relations manager, said at GDC today according to GI.biz.

"We're looking for a number of great games, and in return for exclusivity we'll match your development budget with guaranteed royalties," he said.
