Problems:

 

1. Where are the Icebreaker and WipEout 2D games located in the store?  They're not listed.  All I see are Konami, Atari and Intelevision games listed.

 

2.  Why do we need to have a Vita to unlock the ability to play some of these games on Home?  There's no PS3 version of the app, nor is there a version that can be downloaded through Home.  The app is downloadable onto the PS3, but it was in the store only in the Vita section.  It's downloadable onto the PS3 for the purpose of sending it to the Vita is we can't access the store through the Vita.  The Vita app can't be loaded on on the PS3, and therefore I'm under the impression that we can't partake in this Home Arcade service unless we have BOTH a Vita and a PS3, even if we only want to play them on Home.  What the HELL?

1. There aren't personal space versions of those two cabinets. They are available for free on the Vita app and available to play for free in Home. Icebreakers is in the Indie Park and Bowling Alley. Wipeout 2D is in the Wipeout space.

 

2. You can play all of the games on Home that are available on the Vita. If you install it on Vita, you can access the store by looking at the Recommended Games tab in the app itself. You can also buy the arcade cabinets from the Home Arcade tab in the New and Featured section of the Home store.

You've hit on my two big criticisms. We need a way to get Ice Breakers and Wipeout as cabinets. Hopefully those will be available at some point.

 

Having this as a PS3 app would also be a huge plus, so I could grab a few minutes of gaming action without waiting for Home to load. That's not a dealbreaker for me, though. I'll log in if it means I can get my Astrosmash on.

 

And to clarify, you don't need a Vita to get the arcade cabinets in Home. They're for sale in the Games store and through the Navigator. IF you own a Vita and buy the games for Home, you'll have them on your Vita and vice versa.

To anyone looking to buy these cabinets I'd recommend purchasing them directly through Home as apposed to the Vita. There's a few of us who purchased through our Vitas currently running into an issue of not getting a couple cabinets and associated items.

Checking my Services List, and for Shark! Shark!, it has:

Realtime Associates -- Home
• Intellivision(R) SHARK! SHARK! Game Cartridge
...and...
Realtime Associates -- HAP
• Shark Shark -- HAP

"Game Cartridge" sounds not like a cabinet, but that Intellivision Console dealie. Is that what's causing this SNAFU?

Anyone have any ideas on how the Intellivison rewards unlock? I've got the T-shirts from both games, and there's nothing that explains how to get them.

 

I beleive the T-shirt unlocks for reaching the 3x multiplier in Astrosmash. No idea on Shark! Shark!

 

I'm also wondering how that multiplier in Astrosmash works. In the original game, it was a bonus for accuracy, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

First reward is at 7500 points, 2nd reward is at 50k.   I'll have to check Home to see what they are, but I think Ranko's post mentions the 2 items.
