Everybody's arcade is NOT free. You get to play one of the games as a trial version for 10 minutes. The games each cost around £2.50 each in this selection. I've got to say what a stupid move this is from Sony. £2.50? Christ, don't they realise how much more money they would make if they'd released them for £1.00 each? Sometimes, Sony... just sometimes.

Overall, a nice selection of games to begin with though. I just thought that Sony would want to kick this off with a great value packed game of their own. Klondike for £2.50... come now.

But don't let my little gripe put you off. Many Vita owners over at Neogaf are whooping with joy at this very moment.

Yeah that probably should have been cheaper for the minigames in Everybody's arcade.

anyways, good that this has finally launched.

PSMobile needs apps. PSminis are cool, but vital apps would be better.

First of all,they give some of the money to the developer and a few taxes add to it.....so 1 dollar for sony and 1 dollar for super crate box..

Is this just for the U.S? I was hoping for a simultaneous global rollout :(
sinncross  +   664d ago
Well we will only know when EU store is updated tomorrow.

Either way, probably best that they finally got this launched somewhere at least. Its taken longer than I thought it would.

Whats the difference between this and PS Minis?
(Serious question, bc i dont know ... ive never played the minis)
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   664d ago
Honestly, I don't know...

A couple of these actually ARE minis. :/

Minis do, however, run on their own emulator, I believe. That's what it seems like when I boot them up on the PS3 and/or Vita. (Sort of like PS1 games)

These probably have full touch and gyro functionalities, unlike the minis.

It's for compatible mobile device like androids. It lets you download the apps and play Playstation mini like games,

Mini's also tend to average out around $4.99 and these cost about a fraction of that with the current lowest game being 49 cents.

too expensive

also i hope we see some non game apps as well. id like to see HBOGO, iheartradio and some other stuff. oh, and i dont care for trophies(really i couldnt care less) but we live in the age of gaming where many absolutely refuse to buy a game if it doesnt have trophies. maybe sony should allow psm developers to use trophies, maybe have like 3-5 trophies.

Fuel Tiracas is less than 1$ and it's pretty fun.
jujubee88  +   664d ago
Ahahahaha!

...Wait, wth??? You where serious?

p.s. There is a non-game app that's a music composing thing-a-machig ("Beats Tellis"). Haven't tried it out but, once the morning sun comes out and the hobo's have dissipated I shall put all the money's into this Playstation Mobile venture.

"Update your PlayStation Store app on Andriod to have access to PSM"

Does this mean you need an android phone?
boybato  +   664d ago
Not really my thing though might still try a few of these games. Great addition nontheless.
Cam977  +   664d ago
Hopefully this goes well and turns out to be a good investment for Sony.
ForRealz17  +   664d ago
I see huge potential in PS Mobile. Let see the support for it now.
