News: New downloadable service for bite size games launches on the PSP on October 1.

When Sony launches the PSP Go on October 1, it will also take a page from Nintendo's DSiWare service and launch the "PSP Minis" series of downloadable games alongside it.

PSP Minis will have their own section on the PlayStation Store and they will be playable on either the original PSP or the new PSP Go (score one for Sony that Nintendo couldn't do). Games in the Minis series will be cheap (though no pricing options were confirmed) and limited to 100 MB in size.

To stock the Minis store, Sony has reached out to developers of all sizes including...

  • Gameshastra, a medium-sized development team based in India
  • HoneySlug a three-man team in Camden, London
  • Creat Studios, a team that has brought games such as Cuboid and Smash Cars to the PlayStation Store
  • Subatomic Studios, a development team that previously focused on cell phone games

    Sony has also tapped Electronic Arts to create content for the service and the company will oblige with two titles that will be available at launch: Sudoku and Tetris. Sony plans to launch the service with a total of fifteen games, which will span a wide variety of genres including racing, arcade-style games and parlor games.

    ??minis? is yet another part of our concerted effort to expand content options on PlayStation Store as the demand for digital content will increase with the launch of PSPgo,? said Eric Lempel, Director of PlayStation Network and Strategic Planning, SCEA. ?minis will give developers the opportunity to create and share a variety of new and original content that in some cases, are only available on PSP.?

    We'll have more soon.
