PSPminis: I’m sure that’s been on the mind of a lot of people who are interested in Minis since the NGP and PlayStation Suite were announced. The head of SCE, Kaz Hirai, addresses this in an interview recently posted on Tech On.
i could see this turning into the ipod/iphone app store or the android market what sony needs to do its make this open for everyone to get into it. let people make there own apps and sell them through the market.
It's sort of looking that way. This is the early signs of the AppStore all over again. It's truly a potentially HUGE endeavor and opportunity for Sony considering they're pulling a cross platform move delivering this to Droid users, and I understand the iOS team has been approached. Just imagine, PSS on Droids, iPod/Pad/Phone, PSP/PS3/NGP...domination and adoption overnight!
they should make minis different for each platform for example, if you download it on ngp, it will have ngp resolution and use the touchschreen, and if you download it on psp it will be the same as it is now. i just hate that the minis are just a psp game that you can play on ps3. i wish it had a better resolution and better controls, say for instance, the ability to use the second analog on ps3. sorry, i just think they are too expensive and a waste of money unless yu have a psp
I have no idea what it means. Stop asking complicated questions.
I really hope that the playstation suit is a huge sucess. Cause that would bring the playstation experience to all mobile devices owners. But my fav part about ti (what i want to do on the NGP) is download all the FF on the PS1, PS2 and shove them into the NGP.
Why are the current minis so expensive?
"So what does the NGP and PlayStation Suite mean for the future of Minis?" it mean they have a future
I agree. As an example, Angry Birds is free on Android, and (I think since I don't have an iPhone) .99 on the iPhone store. Yet, it is $3.99 on PSN as a mini with LESS content. I mean, what the frack? If minis were .99 to $1.99, I'd buy them. The only minis I have are the ones that were free through PS+ and they are certainly not worth the price that Sony is charging if I had to pay for them.
The games are not free on Android - free versions come with google advertising. Otherwise you still have to pay for them. But it's true. PSN titles should be in the same range.
It may have advertising, but if I'm not paying then it is technically "free." ;)
PSS is not in direct competition the app store/market. it's a way for sony to be involved in publishing games on other platforms. some of those games will probably become minis, but most will probably use touchscreen features as they're designed for android and ngp. the games themselves will probably mostly be developed my those already in the mobile app/game market, but sony will provide alot more QA and marketing muscle than those game normally receive.
