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:
- Age of Zombies (TSA review)
- Fieldrunners (TSA Roundup)
- Zombie Tycoon
- Bloons (TSA Roundup)
- Spot The Differences!
- Pinball Fantasies (TSA Roundup)
- Mahjongg Artifacts: Chapter 2 (TSA Roundup)
- Yetisports Pengu Throw
- 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.
