Uhhh...they have nothing to do with this, for the most part. Also, PS3 is not PC or 360, there is no easily available dev suite to use. PS Suite may change how many indie games are on PSN. Also, a LOT of Mini's are made by indie devs, but are largely ignored.

Interesting development on the PS mini front:

The trailer says "Hi-Res Art When Played on a PS3 System".

Never even knew that was possible..

That's... interesting. We'll have to have a look at that claim. Awesome if true.

Edit: Hopefully they can tell other developers. :D

I got the ins and outs behind how they did it, but I can't post it :(

Sony asked them not to share how they did it.

Oh wow the jak games will be there individually? I think I'll be cancelling my preorder so I can just buy Jak 2 and 3 and save $10. I'll buy the lesser Jak 1 at a more financially convenient time.

Oh and a new ps2 game!!!

I just put money into my PSN account and haven't bought anything for 2 years. Can anyone recommend me the top few purchaseable games on PSN? I got Super Stardust, Flower and Dead Nation already.

Thanks peeps.

I gotta say, I keep on preaching about putting more retail games on these DD services and Sony has done a good job recently in adding more and more games. Developers are finally understanding the long trail of sales via DD.

GTA IV? Huh, cool. I wonder how big that download is going to be.... Also, hopefully this leads to a crazy bundle with the game and all the DLC for a ludicrous price.

According to Eurogamer's Johnny Minkley, these are the prices for some download only Vita games in the UK;

Confirmed prices for Sony's download-only Vita games: MotorStorm RC: £4.79, Escape Plan £9.99, Super Stardust/Top Darts/Hustle Kings £6.49.

those are... bloody good. Motorstorm especially. Under a fiver is super impressive.

We put up an awesome Pixeljunk 4am interview today, please check it out :)

Awesome snippet? Sure!

Chris: Another big part of the game is the audience aspect, where people can tune into different performances that are going on. Will there be a separate app that people can download to listen in?

Rowan: Yes, there will be a FREE Viewer available for download on PSN. Then there is the regular full version of 4am which lets you perform, broadcast live and do everything. The free Viewer won’t require a Move controller and since it is free, anyone can download and start streaming anyone who is playing 4AM whenever they want. And not just watch, but provide feedback similar to a Facebook ‘like’. You could almost use it as a free PSN radio station. Just let it seek and find a random person playing live. Leave it running in the background at parties or something. I mean it’s free and has these awesome looking visualizers and music on it. We haven’t really seen anyone else try this on the PlayStation Network. People using the free version can upgrade at any time to the full version and join in the music broadcasting.

Free viewer app! We also have a sexy new screenshot :D

(This may or may not be the new image)

As someone who used to mix I'm kind of looking forward to 4am. Not enough to pick up a Move as I still have my decks in the cupboard, but I like the idea of listening into other people's mixes.

Well, let's hope we're closer to getting all of the PS2 Shin Megami Tensei games in both the US and EU territories. This must have something to do with me tweeting Atlus about none of their PS2 SMT games being on the PSN store, so everybody is free to thank me all they want.
