Sony Launches “Only on PSN”, Releasing PS2 Games on Store


We knew this day would eventually come: PlayStation 2 classics will be made available on the PlayStation Store beginning with tomorrow's PlayStation Store publish. The news comes from Sony's announcement this morning of a new "Only on PSN" initiative which bolsters the PSN's already growing line-up of exclusive games.

Tomorrow, "rare classic games" such as God Hand, GrimGrimoire, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory, Odin Sphere and Ring of Red, will be made available on the PlayStation Store.

Sony has also outlined plans for more exclusive titles comings this month, like Eufloria (out tomorrow), Okabu (October 18th), and PixelJunk SideScroller (October 25th).

If you are thinking about picking up any number of these games, but groaning at the wallet strain it's likely to cause, Sony has some relief for you. They're offering 20% off for PlayStation Plus subscribers on all of these titles during their launch week. Additionally, for non-Plus subscribers, if you spend $60 from your PSN wallet during October, Sony will give you $10 to spend during the month of November.
