Thanks for the heads up! I wasn't even aware there was a PS3 port, let alone that it's coming here. Love the Dreamcast version.

As far as I'm concerned, this is cheap ass gamer, not charity ass gamer. Shumps will come without my money and if they don't, it's not like shumps are in any way rare. They're one of the more glutted genres out there.

Any B&M stores going to be getting this? I'd rather this not get crushed in the mail on the way to me especially if I'm going to be paying full price. I know GameStop got Akai Katana...

^I'd like to know this too! I so want a pre-order bonus if I'm going through Gamestop!

I thought Akai Katana was going to be rare so I pre-ordered that. Guess I was wrong. Oh well, I always like and try to get these niche titles.

Newegg burned me on The Last Story with it's bubble mailer. Even though it's $10, I'd rather have my outer packaging come in w/out being crushed.

I think the deluxe edition is already getting a soundtrack and digital artbook. I don't think there's much more it could do at the $40 price point... maybe a mini helicopter figure?

I would disagree. Shmups coming out today are very rare in this country. Especially in physical packaged retail release. I could probably count on one hand how many retail shmups have come out on the Xbox 360 in the 7 years since launch. On PS3 as somebody already mentioned, even more rare. The question for me is if this will be actually rare or not. I want to buy one but prefer to wait until games hit $10. If this ends up being rare then that might not be possible. The other question is if there will be a "standard" non deluxe edition. If there is then I could see the deluxe edition being fairly hard to find. I know the Dreamcast version was hard to find.

It's like your tag line "lacks decisive evidence" at this point in time....

If you're parsing it down to retail console releases, then tower defense games are just as rare if not moreso! Platformers and puzzle games too! Anyone can win the argument when you define it in such terms. Doesn't change the fact that any consumer remotely interested in shumps has loads of options available across PC and console download services.

Completely forgot about the soundtrack and the digital artbook in the HD version. I'll take a sticker, a code for a PS3 theme, and/or a code for DLC if there is going to be any.

As far as I'm concerned, this is cheap ass gamer, not smart ass gamer. People should be allowed pay for games that they feel is cheap for what they're getting without someone being an ass about it.

Whatever. You don't seriously think that there are as many shump releases out there, retail or not, versus tower defense games, do you?

Couldn't agree with you more. Some people just don't understand the rareness of North American shmup releases, or just don't care that much about shooters in general. Others do care a lot about this genre and will support it whenever possible.

We've had a history of poor support for North American shooter releases, but recently several companies (Aksys and RSG) have tried hard to change that. I for one am very appreciative of their efforts, and Under Defeat HD is a HUGE release for the North American market; well worth picking up at whatever price.

I'm just saying. The price of these games has a big history of dropping and not one shump release in this generation has ever become "rare." Buying it now is only out of that over-inflated sense of support more than finding a good deal on the game. That's not a bad thing at all but it's worth noting. We're a DEALS site. It's just my opinion on the quality of the deal. You can buy it at whatever price you feel is appropriate but I am convinced it can and should go lower.

We're losing sight of the discussion for the weeds now if all we're doing is equivalencies. Tower defense only came up because it is another genre that doesn't get retail releases. A LOT of genres are much more prominent on download than they are on retail disc these days.

I'm not sure what to think of your tone considering precisely how many shooters I've bought in the last year alone. Between IOS, PC, 360, and Wii, I have more than I am ever going to need. There can always be more but I think it's silly to call it an underrepresented genre. In disc releases, certainly, but not in gaming as a whole.

It just seems apparent to me that you're either indifferent to NA shmup releases, or just burned out on the genre. We've had just a tiny handful of North American releases in this genre, in this console generation. Having another one scheduled to come out, and one this fantastic, is something to celebrate, not minimize.

In other words, you may have bought a lot of shmups on multiple platforms, but more often than not I see you here complaining about paying a higher price for games like Dodonpachi Resurrection and Akai Katana, and watching the prices of those games drop, thereby causing you to be apathetic about the whole genre. If I didn't know better, I'd think you're just burned out on the whole thing, and I'm sure others may feel the same way. Thats fine for you, but many of us prefer to support these rare retail releases in any way we can, and encourage future ones.

Burned out on paying high prices more like it. Shumps are a slow burn. If you like them, they'll last a while and hold many replays. To me, there's just no fierce urgency of buying new ones when I can revisit the classics to hold me over until a price drop. Would I like to see more? Yes, but I don't see any value in playing quixotic charity case to "support the developers." I'm just one consumer and as much as I'd like to see more games, I also value seeing more cheaper games.

And yeah, I'm complaining about overpaying, but I'm still choosing to overpay. My jadedness is oversold.

Only Amazon and Newegg so far for this release; which in the long run COULD make it rarer, but who knows.

*welp I already own the limited edition for the PS3 in Japanese since i never figure it'd come here stateside due to g-rev being such a small developer. Serves me right for taking the gamble and spending $120 on a LE X_X

That and the mention that there probably won't be a 360 retail release stateside I might have to pass on double dipping. Though if rising star does decide to do a stateside release for the 360 I dunno if I should sell my limited edition japanese copy.

True, but hey that's just bonus for a genre that is already very niche in these parts!

And yeah, I'm complaining about overpaying, but I'm still choosing to overpay. My jadedness is oversold.

I agree with RollingSkull, this game is not going to sell out by any means and will likely drop in price in a few months after its release as the demand for these types of games just dont compare to any other... hell, I'd be surprised if this game outsells games like Petshop games on the ds.

Me too, I actually have some gamestop credit to burn through.

Rising Star has done this before. The DoDonPachi "deluxe" edition has been the only edition available in Europe since its release, for example.

It's my understanding that it's a "Deluxe Edition" in the sense that it has DLC that wasn't included with the "Standard Edition" released in Japan earlier this year. It'd be a subtle difference but something Rising Star wants to draw attention to.

I hate to sound like a douche, but i'm waiting for a price drop. Even $20 is kinda pushing it but that's my price point if they are going to pretend this is an LE.

Nothing to be ashamed of, this is Cheap Ass Gamer after all. :) I finally got around to playing Akai Katana, another game published here by RSG. The first time I played score attack I placed in the top 250 on the leaderboard, and it wasn't because I had an amazing game or anything, I barely understood how the scoring system worked. They can't be moving a whole lot of copies with these shmups, the market for them must be incredibly small in the States. This'll be one of the few times I'll buy a game right at release to support their effort.
