Sony’s serious about getting exclusive content on PSN, apparently. It said yesterday it’s to kick off a scheme to guarantee you won’t lose any money by creating games for the service.

“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, told an audience at GDC yesterday.

“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.
