[Shacknews]PlayStation Plus 'buyouts' for devs confirmed by Sony

For gamers, PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection has been a tremendous deal, offering numerous "free" games as part of a subscription. But why do developers offer their games for free? Well, because some of them are getting paid for it, of course.

It was generally assumed that money would exchange hands for PlayStation Plus titles. However, this is one of the first times Sony has explicitly made clear that they will give money to select devs that give their games away for free on the service. PlayStation manager of developer relations Brian Silva told developers at IndieCade that they will offer "buyouts" to give away games on Plus for a month.

Awesome news for indie devs who need an outlet. Its like free publishing, and you get to keep your rights to franchise.
