Discuss and discover all the great games of yesteryear!
Does look great doesn't it? I've not played any 'new' Cave shmups since getting Ibara on PS2 so I must say I'm really missing them. Shame that Microsoft, in their 'wisdom' turned down the chance to publish Cave's games on XBox Live.. another reason to point and laugh at the plonkers in MS marketing - they would have been ideal on that format.
Seems JPNXB360's will be coming down in price!

Btw, not sure if it's been mentioned anywhere else on here but Ketsui and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou Black Label are also being ported to the 360 by the same guys doing the Deathsmiles port.http://www.tradingmarkets.com/.site/new ... s/1854216/

Price cuts in effect starting 9/11. Good news for those who want to buy a JP X360 for all the upcoming ports. Only 19,800yen for an Arcade model. Hopefully that will equate to no more than $250 at shops like play-asia. It's probably the new Jasper chipset too, which is cheaper to produce (hence the price drop) and far more reliable.
Honestly, in terms of the quality of games, if you can buy only one of the 3 current systems you definitely need to get the X360. The Wii is total crap, and nothing good seems to be released on the PS3 anymore (not much on the horizon either, especially for shooting game fans).
Well, I agree with Type2xs there - it's hard to stomach importing a Jap 360 when you know it will more than likely not last the distance and break down at some point due to poor build quality However, although I know that people usually flash the 360's drive with dubious intentions - would doing this allow you to play games without the region problems as C=Style suggests ? I imagine it would work, but I don't want to fork out and then find out it doesn't. I'm a big fan of shooters and need to play these games one way or another
Bought a Jap 360 of Ebay for this and Otomedius Gorgeous.. I heard there's gonna be a limited Box set release of Death Smiles with figures and stuff.. They was a petition posted on 'Cave's website to make this and Ketsui region begion free but they said they have no plans at present to do this...

This would be awesome. I absolutely love the character desigins in this (no matter what the lolli-goth haters say) and would more than likely pick up the LE.I heard there's gonna be a limited Box set release of Death Smiles with figures and stuff
According to the developers blog Mushi Futari, ESPGII and DDP DFK are also contenders to get ported to the 360. And the developer has stated it would be his preference to port ESPGII to XBLA. Which would be a shame as ESpGII is so good it deserves a full release.
Man I need to get a Jap 360, they always seem so dear from import companies. Anyone know where I can get a reasonably priced one?Shinobi wrote:Bought a Jap 360 of Ebay for this and Otomedius Gorgeous..

Aye I was looking at Play-Asia, ebay also wasn't much help. I know someone in Japan but I'm not sure I know him well enough to start asking for him to send me a 360!! Might mean I have to bring forward those plans to take a visit over there.Kaede wrote:Incl Tax and postage, looking at around Â£230-240 from Play Asia. The problem with 360's is that they weigh a ton and for them to import NTSC-J models to Hong Kong and then selling them on bumps the price up.
Might be better if you can find a direct seller in Japan?

I'll most likely go with PA given the delicate nature of 360's in the first place. Although, second hand Japanese stuff is usually in excellent shape.
