Between the larger announcements from Sony today regarding the Playstation 3 and its games, there was news that might bring joy to those that have wanted an appstore like environment for the Playstation Portable (PSP), which is now becoming reality in the form of "Minis".
Last week it was noted that some future PSP games would be released digitally, not for full retail price, instead they would arrive with a price up to €5 and would be seen as smaller titles for on the go play.
Sony has now announced their plans for the smaller games with titles coming under the "Minis" banner, games that will be smaller and cheaper than retail, and will be available via the Playstation Network (PSN) on the Playstation Store.
The "Minis" games will all be limited to being under 100MB, and will allow PSP users access to smaller, more quick play and fast fun orientated games.
The launch of the Minis store will arrive with 15 games ready to buy from day one, with a total of 50 games expected before the end of the year.
Some of the games that have been confirmed for release are confirmed for release include smaller versions of existing games like Pacman Championship Edition, Championship Manager and Burn Zombie Burn 2D, and for the puzzle fan, Sudoku and Puzzle Scape will be arriving also.
These will be joined by Fieldrunners, Alien Havok,, Funky Punch, Breakquest, and Melody Bloxx.
The Minis store will be launching on the 1st of October to coincide with the release of the PSPGo, a disk-less version of the PSP relying on digital downloads, the pricing of each title to be released has yet to be revealed.
