PlayStation Home Arcade brings parts of Sony's Second Life-esque world to PlayStation Vita

You like the games in Sony’s PlayStation 3-based social network, Home, but not the endless Quincying? We can fully respect that, and we’re glad to tell you that Sony’s doing something specifically catered to your wants, fictional person — today, PlayStation Home Arcade launches on the PlayStation Vita, bringing arcade games from the network to Vita with none of the awkward virtual dancing found on PS3. The software previously popped up on the Vita’s store, but Sony wasn’t saying a word at the time — and now we know why. To access PlayStation Home Arcade, grab the free download from the Vita’s PlayStation Store gateway; we’re not seeing it pop up in the store just yet, but keep your eyes peeled! When it is available, to access the games, open up the application and download away — they range from free to $1.49. For a full list of titles and the official word from Sony, head past the break. For a horrifying demonstration of Quincying, watch this.
