Minis Sell Over A Million

Over on the US PlayStation Blog they’re a-skippin’ and a-dancin’ about the success of Minis. Apparently they have managed to “ship” over a million of the eighty-five Minis titles currently available from over fifty different developers.

This is great news, not only for the service and the developers involved but also for those of us who love Minis. For me they have been (along with the excellent Digital Comics application) the saviour of my PSP. Minis are far more accessible than the majority of “full” PSP games and much easier to pick up and play for a few minutes while waiting for your bus, train or better half to finish whatever the hell it is she does in Next that takes forty-five minutes.


There’s a full chart rundown of the most downloaded Minis too, many of which we’ve reviewed:

  1. Age of Zombies (TSA review)
  2. Monopoly
  3. Fieldrunners (TSA Roundup)
  4. Zombie Tycoon
  5. Bloons (TSA Roundup)
  6. Spot The Differences!
  7. Pinball Fantasies (TSA Roundup)
  8. Mahjongg Artifacts: Chapter 2 (TSA Roundup)
  9. Yetisports Pengu Throw
  10. Breakquest (TSA Roundup)

It’s slightly disappointing not to see a couple of my personal favourites on there, Vector TD and Let’s Golf! but with a million downloads it seems there’s plenty to go around. Let’s hope this means even more great titles coming to the service along with the already announced PacMan CE which is due soon.



  1. Good to hear. Age of Zombies is great, but I’m wondering whether the sales for that are included in the FirstPlay stuff.

    Also, yeah, Vector TD guys. Buy it.

    • PS+ also gave away Age of Zombies and Fieldrunners (both great), I wonder if those figures are included?

  2. Age of Zombies is easily one of the funniest, most addictive games I’ve played. Period. Good to see it topping the charts :)

    • I agree! Had me laughing for a while :D

  3. Age of Zombies and Fieldrunners are awesome. And people said PSN+ didnt give you any good games?

  4. I would like to see minis that haven’t been ported from the Iphone and less that looks like flash I just can’t stand such games…

    • i don’t mind the ones being ported from the iphone, its when it cost like 3.49, when most iphone games cost 59p. Angry birds for the win.

  5. The mini’s are great for when you have to go and spend some time in the smallest room in the house….. If they were a little cheaper a la iPhone Apps (which some of them are conversions of) then they’d probably sell even more.

    • I have to agree. As tight as it may make me sound I often see a new Mini and think about buying it but if it’s more than £2.49 I barely consider it and if it’s less than £1.79 I don’t think twice, I insta-buy! They’re just not quite getting the impulse-purchase price right for a lot of them.

      • I recon they should have trophy support. Say 5 bronze and 1 silver. IMO they would have sold a lot more. Good job tho Sony :)

  6. As spekjemean said trophy support for them and they would sell like hot cakes
