Buy downloadable games and get your own arcade booth in your home in HOME.

Would love to have a Pixeljunk eden arcade booth or how about echochrome one.

or maybe a Street Fighter HD booth :o

*UPDATE*

Home virtual arcade now includes Dig Dug, Galaga, Pac-Man, echochrome

Posted Jul 31st 2008 5:06PM by Andrew Yoon
Filed under: PlayStation Network


If you're one of the few that's already in the Home beta, you may have already experienced the underwhelming virtual arcade, located in the Games Space within Home. The new version being released for Japan will expand the arcade offerings, and the new choices look yummy. Namco Bandai is offering seven games within Home, with four revealed already: Dig Dug, Galaga, Pac-Man and Xevious. Three more "secret" games will be revealed later.

More intriguing, a 2D Home-exclusive version of echochrome can also be accessed from within Home. With more and more game offerings being added to the online service, we're confident that everyone will want to access the virtual world at least once -- if only to play these games.

Looks cool. I'll be buying PixelJunk Eden sometime today.

And yeah, Home continues to impress me, but one can only be so impressed by pictures and videos. I need to get my hands on it.

I can't imagine what the pressure must be like to be the last guy with credibility around here still defending the PS3, keep up the good fight man.

My friend, if you only play games on the Ps3, well :

1. You're an idiot.

2. You're a fanboy

3. You're missing out on some of the best games ever.

Awesome. This is so much more convenient than selecting them from a menu.

No, seriously, why is this a needed feature?

Even though he's typing on one right now....

I don't think they will allow that.

I mean the games themselves probably won't be on the Home servers.

The arcade boxes will just be portals to the arcade games you already have.

Well if you're already inside Home doing stuff, you wouldn't have to exit out to the XMB to play the game. Just walk on over to your games booth.

How anyone coudl defend Fart is beyond me. Even if he is defending your system of choice, you should just let the lems go at him cause he is ridiculous. I'm sure you know exaclty what Fart means in that post. If it ain't on a Sony console, it's not worth playing in the first place.

Shouldn't have a problem running it either. He has a PCS3 combo. If he can run Crysis, Second life is no problem at all.

I think the only arcade booth games that can be in your own virtual space in Home will be games that's accessible for everyone like the ones they already showed. So yeah it would be cool to have PixelJunk, Street Fighter IV, Echochrome, etc. in your virtual Home, it might not be possible to invite a friend or two in your Home to play those games if they didn't purchase those games themselves. Unless those games are free trials, but I think all of that would be too ambitious, who knows.
