SCEA: Publishers are to blame for high cost of PSP Minis

SCEA's Eric Lempel has told Joystiq that Mini pricing for PSPgo rests solely in the hands of the publisher - that's why you will find some games listed whose iPhone counterpart (Hero of Sparta) may be cheaper.

"As far as pricing goes, the publisher of the title sets the pricing," he said. "I think they have to carefully price their content. Minis was intended to be something a little different and we wanted to see a lot of different types of content through minis.

"If it's not priced correctly, consumers may be turned off at the proposition and say 'I'd rather just go for this kind of stuff instead of minis.'"

Maybe after the newness of Minis wear off some publishers will come to their senses.
