Dropping quarters

As spotted late last year, a new application is heading to the PlayStation Vita that will allow you to take your PlayStation Home arcade cabinets out and about with you. The free download – set to release in both Europe and North America this week – features full cross-buy compatibility, meaning that any titles you’ve already purchased will be automatically playable on the handheld and vice versa.

The initial roster of games includes classics such as Frogger, Centipede, and Asteroids. Each mini-game will cost you £0.79/$1.49. WipEout 2D, Ice Breaker, and a demo for Scribble Shooter will be included for free. Presumably, the application's library will grow as new content is added to PlayStation Home. There’s a trailer embedded in the space below. Let us know if this is something that you’re interested in via the comments section.
