SCEA chap Justin Cooney told Gama this week that multiplay, DLC and software updates have been banned from PSP Minis in an effort to “accelerate the approval process.”

“When you look at it from a testing perspective, you have to do more QA. [Allowing those features] would defeat the purpose of having a dedicated service for smaller content,” he said.

Minis were announced at GamesCom last month. The games are restricted to a 100Mb and will launch with PSP Go, on October 1, with a library of 15 games.
