It seems like Sony is adding Minis to the PlayStation 3 to broaden the market for their tiny title. Perhaps, Minis will be the PSN equivalent of experimental Xbox Indie Games.

  • I’d say this is the best idea they’ve come up with in a long time, now all they’ve got to do is make Minis compatible with Sony Ericsson phones and other devices.

    The firmware also allows you to transfer files over from one PS3 to another. But I’m still hoping for an update that would allow you to create a Backup Utility-like file just for saves, or at least allow copying of multiple saves the same way as they allow for the other media on the PS3 (with those checkboxes). It’s a pain copying the savefiles one-by-one.
