Sony has said today that their PSP, PS3 Minis have reached one million downloads.
The Minis are low-priced games available via the PlayStation Network on either the home console or the handheld.
It is unclear whether the number includes free demos, but if it does, the number is even more insignificant than it already is.
Only 1.7 percent of all PSP owners have downloaded a Minis game, compared to 51 percent of iPhone owners and 54 percent of BlackBerry owners.
Minis were released 9 months ago, and there are over 60 million PSP owners, in all variations.
Of the 86 games available, PocketGamer says the following 10 are the best-selling:
Age of Zombies (Halfbrick)
Zombie Tycoon (Frima)

Spotify, the popular music streaming service available in Europe, has announced today the launch of two new variations of the service, Spotify Open and Spotify Unlimited.
“Unlimited” gives users “round-the-clock,” ad-free access to Spotify for €5 a month. Unlike the more expensive “Premium” version, you will not be able to move files to your smartphone or play in offline mode at all. You will need to be connected to the Internet at all times to play the tracks.
Premium is £9.99 per month, however.
“Open” is completely free, but also lacks most of the options of the other variations, including some that are even included in Spotify “Free,” which is free but requires an invite to sign up.
Spotify Open lets anyone sign up and receive 20 hours of streaming per month, with no other obligations. You will hear ads, just like in the Free version, however.

Opera browsers, in all variations, are now being used by 100 million people globally, says the company, with 50 million using it on Windows, Macs and Linux computers, with the other 50 using Opera Mini on their mobile phones.
Thanks to the popularity of the mobile version, as well as the new “ballot box” on new Windows computers in the EU, Opera says year-on-year growth is 30 percent.
Additionally, more users access the Web using Opera through their gaming consoles and set-top boxes.
“Our focus on speed, security, innovation and usability continues to yield results. We always listen to the needs and wants of our users, and they reward us by choosing Opera,” added Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera Software.
“Opera’s record growth shows that we are on the right track, and that as user needs grow, we are growing right along with them,” says Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “Opera for Desktop delivers the fastest browsing experience on the planet, with a visionary approach to features and a user-friendly design.”
