PlayStation Home Arcade launched for Vita

Free app offers Vita access to the 'arcade classics' of PlayStation Home

Sony has announced the launch of the free PlayStation Home Arcade application for Vita.


Available for download for free from the PlayStation Store from today, the application offers Vita owners access to portable versions of "arcade classics" available in the PlayStation Home social platform.

Once installed, the app lets you download and play a number of free or paid titles, including retro classics such as Asteroids, Centipede and Frogger.

The application links to users' Sony Entertainment Network ID, so arcade cabinet purchases in PlayStation Home can also be re-downloaded to Vita via the PH Home Arcade app at no extra cost.
