Free Arcade Machines
You want something that will spruce up your apartment in Home, how about a Galaga arcade machine, or Pacman, or Dig Dug, well now you can, all you need to do is download the trial of the newly released Namco Essentials pack and complete each game as far as possible and you'll unlock free arcade machines for your apartment, I'm not sure as to what you need to to exactly to unlock all the machines but I know the Galaga machine simply requires you to get to the challenging stage where the trial ends, coincidentally, your new arcade machine for Home will also end at the first challenging stage, but it sure looks great.

Nice find, thanks for the headsup!

Ever since Home launched, there's been, in my opinion, little impetus to actually use it. However, if games start to offer sophisticated integration like this, where succeeding in a level offers a tangible reward elsewhere, I think this will definitely lead to a higher level of usage from many people.

I really hope that other developers will follow suit...

I should also mention you can get an Xevious machine for your apartment as well, haven't yet so any screenshots will consist of Galaga, Pac-Man, and Dig Dug. One more thing these machines should be considered for show only, as playing them requires anyone else in your apartment who wants to play the machines to have downloaded the Namco Essentials Trial and unlike other arcade games in Home, loads completely separate of Home, takes forever and to return to Home requires using the turn off/quit screen accessed by pressing the Home button on your controller. Anyway as I mentioned before here's a shot of the machines in question, this comes from the Chamber Apartment, I know it's a bad picture, but I didn't have access to my better camera, so this was shot with my BlackBerry.
