  • Monopolys awesome

  • megalodonshark

    it is good to have alot of these smallish games. the price on most is fantastic and the games as a general rule are very fun and addictive.

  • man, you guys really don’t need to emphasize your McDonalds mentality towards gaming any more than you already do. >_>

  • Age of Zombies is so awesome!

  • Question: Are there any turn-based menu driven RPG Minis yet?

    I’m looking for something like Breath of Death VII(a DQ clone) that showed up on XBL a couple months back. Any info is appreciated.

  • Fallen_Guardian

    Thanks to PSN+ I have Age of Zombies and Fieldnrunners, both are great games that should be bought. The future of PS Minis looks bright with titles like “WHERE’S MY HEART?” and etc.

  • JetSetFuture

    I got Age of Zombies and Fieldrunners as part of my Plus subscription, and I love them! I also dig Breakquest and the Hysteria Project. I’m looking forward to more Minis, particularly ones based on arcade classics or old-school console games.

    • Scott Hawkins

      We released three classic arcade games as Minis including:

      Lock ‘n’ Chase
      Express Raider
      Burnin’ Rubber (aka “Bump ‘n’ Jump”)

      We hope to bring more classics to Minis as well!!

  • Fallen_Guardian

    I wish Sony would make Minis for their PS Franchises, like Ratchet and Clank, Sly cooper, LBP, and etc.

    Ohh and the God of War mobile title could be turned into a PS Mini, that way more people could play the game :)

  • Planning on picking up Monopoly in the next day or two for a roadtrip on Friday.
    And Pac-Man CE will be a mini? Awesome! I’m hoping it’ll be PS3/PSP and not just PSP only like Tetris, but I’m looking forward to it either way.

  • you forgot to mention that 500,000 of these were within the past two weeks by PS+ subscribers ;) I kid, congrats

  • you forgot to mention that 500,000 of these were within the past two weeks by PS+ subscribers ;) I kid, congrats

  • Not a mini but you should give a shout out to Hello Games too who recently revealed at the Develop conference they broke even on their first day of Joe Danger sales and passed 50,000 in a week. Nice little success story for them.

  • ProjectInfiniti

    Free mini for everyone in celebration of 1 million? Do it! :D

  • I’d be interested to see what numbers Fieldrunners and Age of Zombies were at before PS+. All the same, they’re fun games, and AoZ had some hilarious moments.

    @ NarcMonkey (3)

    I’m not exactly sure how that tracks. In fact, I’d say that’s the exact opposite of the truth. PS3 exclusives aren’t ‘out the door as quickly as possible.’ They aren’t ‘rushed.’ In fact, PS3 exclusives have been shown to be of the highest quality. What the hell you’re talking about is beyond me, which leads me to believe you’re whining about something specific and trying to apply it to their entire business model.

  • Havent bought one yet LOL :)

    But PAC-MAN The frist game I ever played back in 84 Those were the days. might have to pick that one up. :)

  • I have the two that were part of PS Plus, otherwise non of the Minis i got are on the list :( but i like the concept and the fact that they are playable on PS3. keep up the good work.

  • I liked Fieldrunners

  • Congrats, keep pumping out good minis :)

  • Congradulations Sony. im proud of you guys for being able to reach this milestone, but i have an issue to address, it seems that ur psn costumers, me included, are very disappointed that after 4years of asking for cross-game chat, you have failed to deliver. Its more like your avoiding the issue, and i would really respect you guys more if you just came out and said you couldn’t do it, rather then giving us the run around. because we believe it can be done. now i know probably nobody is going to listen to me being that you guys haven’t listened to us for 4years but i jus had to get my point across.

    Not as many people care about cross-game chat as you think.
    Quit complaining.

  • Prices are often too high but keep them coming.

  • FriedConsole

    So glad they mentioned Pacman CE!!! I was worried this game might be dead. It was announced like a year ago.

    I love the mini platform. Please keep them coming!

    Glad Fieldrunners and Age of Zombies are getting purchases.

    People need to buy Blast Off, Freekscape, and Monsters (probably) Stole My Princess. They are awesome!

  • FredPunella

    sk8boardn8 shut up.

    Go back to your POS RRoDbox.

  • Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess was brilliant. Loved all of halfbrick’s minis as well.

  • These would sell a lot better in an enviroment that didn’t top out at $40.

    Lets Golf! ipod: $1.99(also has been put on sale for $0.99)

    Lets Golf! PSP: $6.99(later dropped to $4.99)

    Also wasn’t tetris $10 when it launched?

    “We’re priced competetivly with the ipod touch” was the justification for the PSP Go’s $249 price tag. It would be nice if your software was also priced competetivly.

    I’m tired of buying nothing for my PSP Go because everything is priced so out of whack. Please fix that.

  • ExPresident

    Got Age of Zombies and Fieldrunners with my PSN+ subscription. I’d have never bought these games without that subscription and thats sad, cause both these titles are very enjoyable, especially for what they charge.

    Tetris only works with PSP tho? I’d like to dl that one to play on my ps3 occassionally.

  • FriedConsole

    @ #25 krae_man

    I am OK with the iPhone/PSP price differences. I find that it is worth a little extra to play a game properly with real buttons.

  • David2Crazy

    If they had trophies I would probably be more interested in buying more. So far the only ones I’ve downloaded are the ones that are free with Playstation Plus.

  • THANK YOU SIR!!!…. May I have another?!

  • Halfbrick deserves thank-you’s.

  • Congratulations!

  • StealthReborn--

    Did I just read something about PacMan coming? I remember playing that arcade game at my dentist when I was a little kid! Looking forward to that game on PSN as a mini. :)

  • congrats to all the mini developers and I hope you guys break even at least on these mini.

  • so what? I can’t get any of those games anyway

  • I never really looked into Minis until recently when I went to the Playstation Home Minis Event. I like the way the games are presented and I wound up purchasing Hero of Sparta. Can you guys make the Minis Event a permanent part of Home rather then being a temporary area? If you used a format similar to the space right now plus added new Kiosks for the new Minis that come out on Tuesday, I’m sure you would increase your sales even further.

    Since the Minis are a nice, small file size, they are perfect for downloading while you are in Playstation Home. I like the Home format because you feel more like you are in a store. It enhances the overall presentation and virtual shopping experience. I also like the way the space informs people about some facts about Minis that they may not know about.

  • Congrats guys, hope to see more great minis for PSN+

  • not a surprise that Age of Zombies and Field Runners are in the top 3 since they were just offered for free to PS+ Subscribers lol.

  • Age of Zombies deserves a Game of the Year award.

  • I have been really enjoying a lot of the PSN content in general. Have really enjoyed Age of Zombies, Cubixx, and Echoes which I bought. Now I have Fieldrunners with my PS+ subscription. All great games. Keep them coming.

  • Can’t wait for Pac-Man CE. Hopefully Ms. Pac-Man will follow.

  • Hi, this is Robert Boyd at Zeboyd Games (makers of the RPGs, Breath of Death VII and the upcoming Cthulhu Saves the World).

    We’re just a small company without a lot of money so we went for the platform with the lowest barrier of entry (XBox Live Indie Games). However, if Sony wanted to help us out with a dev kit and funding, we would be more than happy to support the PSP Mini platform. If interested, I can be contacted at [DELETED]. Thanks.

  • Hey guys, I dunno how much control you have of this, but I have an Iphone and some of the best games I have played on it could easily work as Minis (better with PSP controls in many cases) and are produced by Gameloft and Gamevil (one of which already produces for PSP and PS3), so what are the chances of getting games like Zenonia and Inotia as Minis?

  • i still love me some balloons =D (those that know the reference are full of complete and utter win.)

  • I haven’t played a mini yet. The name “mini” alone repels me. And some of them cost as much as full fledged PSN games. It’s hard to take these things seriously… but that may just be me.

  • Jeff sony needs to see if developers are willing to add trophies because if they do I’ll buy alot of minis! :)

  • Thanks for adding #1 and #3 to my PLUS colllection!

  • I’m a bit sad to see Freekscape isn’t up there :(.

  • tropicalskin

    Way to go Sony!

  • NotoriousGamer

    Can u move the mini saves menu option from the xmb to inside the PS3 save option sub menu???

  • It’s really too bad Tetris doesn’t work on PS3 yet. The main reason I bought it was because early press for the minis promised they would be playable on both systems. Alas. :(
