PlayStation Home Arcade Brings Downloadable Arcade Classics To Vita

by Rainier on Feb. 5, 2013 @ 12:54 p.m. PST

PS Vita incorporates a 5-inch multi-touch organic light emitting diode as the front display and a unique multi-touch pad on the rear. Together with the front touch screen and the rear touch pad, PS Vita offers new game play experiences, allowing users to interact directly with games in three dimension-like motion, through "touch, grab, trace, push and pull" finger motions.

The PlayStation Home Arcade application is available as a free download for the PS Vita system in the PlayStation Store, and the initial game line-up includes two free games in Icebreaker and WipEout 2D as well as a free demo of popular PlayStation Home arcade title Scribble Shooter. Additional titles can be purchased for $1.49 each and are playable on both the PS Vita system and in PlayStation Home on the PS3

Once downloaded, the application links to users’ Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) ID. Arcade cabinet purchases made by users in PlayStation Home can also be downloaded to the PlayStation Home Arcade at no additional cost.

The following titles are currently available through the PlayStation Home Arcade application for the PS Vita system:

  • Icebreaker (Free) – Sony Computer Entertainment
  • WipEout 2D (Free) – Sony Computer Entertainment
  • Scribble Shooter (Demo available for free) – Sony Computer Entertainment
  • Frogger – KONAMI
  • Time Pilot – KONAMI
  • Asteroids – ATARI
  • Centipede – ATARI
  • Astrosmash Gen2 – INTELLIVISION via Realtime Associates
