Some of us went running to the PlayStation Store just on the rumor that access might change soon. Now that it’s official and the Store for PlayStation 3, PSP, and Vita will be closing later this summer, the race is on to buy all the games, DLC, and content we can. But what are the rare, digital-only titles? How many games were there in a certain franchise? How much would all that cost?
Everyone has their own angle on what’s important to them and there are a variety of sources that cater to each. I’ve tried to round up as many comprehensive lists and tools as I can, and break them down by platform and flavor. I’m sure there are plenty of other sources out there so let me know in the comments. I’ll update each post as I add more links.
NOTE: All PlayStation minis are playable on PSP while many of them are playable on PlayStation 3. A smaller number are playable on Vita and even fewer of them are supported on Vita TV.
GameFAQs – Yes, that GameFAQs
People only think about GameFAQs for cheats and guides but the site has been gathering release information longer than most. I’ve used it as the basis of my research because they break out physical and digital release dates across regions. Here’s their page for all PlayStation Portable downloadable titles and PlayStation minis. Don’t forget the Region and Distribution filters if you’re looking for a specific territory or DLC.
Wikipedia – Another Place to Look
Since PSP and PS minis releases didn’t have Trophies and are some of the oldest digital-only games, they aren’t tracked on TrueTrophies or PSPrices. Thankfully, Wikipedia has a good page for each. Here is their list of downloadable PSP titles and PlayStation minis releases.
