Again, this is for PlayStation Home support. Your question should be asked in PSN General Discussion.

1) You have to have a game that supports online play/information/updates.

2) For the PS Vita, you will need 3G or Wi-Fi support.

3) Though there are free games available from time to time on a limited basis, almost all cost money to purchase. But online play is free. Read your manuals (online or hardcopy) regarding how to connect with a specific game.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

If a game has an online manual, it will usually have that information at the beginning of the game or on the packaging/literature that comes with the game.

Go to the PlayStation Network icon on your XMB. Then scroll down to the little blue shopping bag that says "PlayStation Store".

If you are going to buy games, you will need either a credit card, debit card or a prepaid PSN card.

For further help and information, go to PSN General Discussion.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

Welcome to the PS3!

Just so you know the vast majority of games you pay for, in fact probably more than 99% of them, there are only 1 or 2 free games available, so yes, "all" the games "cost money" & as Conrad has said you'll need a debit/credit card or a PSN card to be able to purchase games/DLC/Avatars, wallpapers etc etc.

Conrad has given some helpful information, however I think this Thread should be in the PSN Games section, not PSN General Discussion, I have asked a member of the Moderation Team to move this there for you.

P.S. One Thread/post will do http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/4696319
