    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    The Pub Fund is an incentive program run by Sony Computer Entertainment to encourage independent developers to self-publish their games on the PlayStation Network. It provides the developer with an advance payment (usually capped at $500,000) against future royalties upon the game passing certification, and other benefits like marketing/PR support from Sony and no fees for patching. In exchange, the game becomes a timed exclusive for PlayStation platforms.

    Since the launch of the Vita, Sony has stated their intention to use the Pub Fund to bolster the development of titles for the platform.
