Apparently 51 percent of iPhone owners have more than five games on their device, while 46 of BlackBerry owners don't have any games downloaded.

It's certainly not an apples to apples comparison but the news that only 1.7 percent of PSP owners have downloaded a PSP Minis game certainly isn't too impressive.

Got your number

To be precise, the actual news is that after nine months, one million PSP Minis have been downloaded; note that's downloaded so probably includes free demos as well as paid games.

It's since been pointed out that there aren't any PSP Minis demos, although PlayStation Plus can get some games for free. (See comments - Ed)

This compares to a PSP install base of 60 million, giving a rough figure of 98.3 percent who haven't downloaded a Minis and just 1.7 percent who have.

Technically though, this is could be an over-estimate as some PSP owners will have more than one Minis game, and you can also buy and play them through your PlayStation 3.

Gotta prime the pump

Obviously it isn't great news for Sony, especially in terms of encouraging more companies to release games via the format.

To-date there have been 86 games from around 50 developers and publishers.

Still, there are some good titles out there, even if you can probably get them cheaper on the App Store.

The top 10 list of the best selling PSP Minis to-date is:

Age of Zombies (Halfbrick)
Monopoly (EA)
Zombie Tycoon (Frima)
Spot The Differences! (Sanuk)
Pinball Fantasies(Cowboy Rodeo )
Mahjongg Artifacts: Chapter 2 (G5)
Yetisports Pengu Throw (Xendex)
Breakquest (Beatshapers)
