Though not 360 import related we like to talk shmups on this thread, Caladrius Blaze by Moss is out next month on the PS3.

It does, I like the spit and polish added to these rereleases hopefully this increased activity from Moss means that they're gearing up for a new game.

I've made a decision that will effect my future 360 shmup collection.....


I'm going to pick up all the platinum/best edtions!

As I've collected 360 shmups I've picked up most titles on release and as the special edition version when available, I'm going to pick up the budget releases because they have generally got all the DLC included on disk, some have different cover art, and they're quite cheap to pick up.

For a starter I managed to pick up the Best version of Muchi Muchi Pork/Pink Sweets Ibara - £16.25!

It looks like there's confirmation that a version of the Milestone shooting collection is headed for the 360:

Just catching up with all the info in here. I'll definitely pick up the region free shooting love game as I liked XII stag, button mapping the wiggle is a godsend :) Would you guys go for bullet souls original or infinite if given a choice?

Infinite Burst, it includes all the DLC on disc, and throws in a great Burst Mode too. Brilliant shooter. :)

Would it be rude of me to ask how much? I've been thinking of selling mine you see.

£200 for the console, £35 postage and I presume £30-40 import VAT, from play-asia new. Second hand at videogame imports is about £195 so I would guess between £170 and £200 if you're selling.
