And what percentage of them are:

...lite versions?

...Points for an MMO?

...basically an advertisement?

I wonder if these figures are before or after the pr0n filter hit.

yeah, you mean 90% shit apps? I know less good games in the appstore then what the psp library have to offer. And the psp have more fully fleshed console games then the appstore will ever have. Maybe we will see more advanced ones on the Ipad, but never as good imo..

True, but then they'll be like WTFBBQ when they actually pick up an iDevice.

I swear, the App Store is:
10% Flashlight apps
25% Sexy apps
30% Lites
20% Advertisements
10% Crap apps (or crapps)
5% Actual good apps

The sad thing is Apple fanboys buy this crap hook, line and sinker. I wouldn't even go so far to say that 95% of the apps are crap, more like 99%.

It's not like either the DS or the PSP are absolutely stocked to the rafters with top quality titles. Most games for them are dross, too - the big difference is that App Store dross mostly weighs in at about a dollar.

Alien Swing is available from the App Store now!

The DS is stocked full of quality titles. Even with the lack of software on the PSP in comparison, I guarantee you the percentage of crap on each platform is well below 95%.
