Sony has announced that the PSP will be getting new ‘mini’ titles this year, with the launch of the PSP Go! in October. The announcement was made earlier today at their GamesCom Press Conference. “Minis” is new section on PlayStation Store that offers a range of all-new downloadable games for PSP. Available exclusively via digital distribution, “minis” will have a 100MB size limit.
The new “minis” section will be available on PlayStation Store on 1st October in Europe/ PAL territories and in North America, to coincide with the launch of PSPgo, offering more choice, more ways to play and more innovative experiences to immerse yourself in wherever you are. Fifteen games will be available initially, across a wide variety of genres including arcade-style games, racers, parlour games – and a few that defy categorization! – with more than 50 games on offer by the end of the year in Europe and the PAL territories.
The minis initiative is also supported by traditional game publishers, with industry leader Electronic Arts Inc developing a number of games for the programme including Tetris and Sudoku, with other titles to follow before the end of the year.
