So let's say you haven't spent much time in PlayStation Home over the years. That's understandable, although we still say you're missing out.

Additional titles will be sold at $1.49 yeach and are playable on the Vita and in Home on the PS3. Furthermore, arcade cabinet purchases made by Home users can be downloaded to the PlayStation Home Arcade at no extra cost.
