    I think them being cheaper on App Store could be a big factor that and piracy. There are a lot of good stuff but most aren't PSP only. A personal fave is Vector TD which you can play online anyway.

    Work harder Sony.

    PSP Minis is just a copy of Wii/DSiWare.

    I know, why would anyone want to buy such a creative in-depth game like FF7

    PSP Minis was sony's attempt to combat the iPhone apps.
    It didn't work though, nobody smart would buy a game like that.

    I'd never even heard of PSP Minis before reading this thread... I guess we know why they don't sell particularly well.

    I find this very surprising, I myself have bought at least five minis and have been very happy with them, surprising that no one else seems to think this

    I think Apple introduced these kind of downloadable mini-games through their Appstore, which IMO is unrivaled yet because of the sheer amount of content...


    What would really be interesting to know is, how many DSi-Owners bought DSiWare-games just to have a good comparison between the two directly competing systems.

    If these minis/dsiware-games doesn`t do well on DSi as well it certainly is not an exclusive Playstation-problem (maybe there is no market for these small experiences on these systems); if it does well on DSi however Sony really needs to see why there is no interest in minis...
