I just snagged a copy. 19.99 + free shipping is a steal.

More the price it really should be proper for a shump. If only I had held out.

That said, damn fine shump. Probably one of my favorites of the genre.

It was a smooth ride.

Cool, think I'll take advantage of this. Been wanting to get this, but felt $40 was a bit high.

Amazon is actually 60 cents cheaper (3rd party but fulfilled by Amazon) http://www.amazon.co...Katana Xbox 360, but the shipping aint free, so Newegg FTW!!

Damn, no longer available. I'll have them e-mail once they get them back in stock. Hopefully, it'll still be $20.

So glad this is sold out. My pocketbook is getting tight and I've been waiting for this one to drop to sub $20 for a while. Great find OP.

Just watched a couple of gameplay videos and I gotta say this game would drive me nuts with all the stuff happening onscreen. Looks insanely fun, though. The only game I have right now with similar gameplay is Deathsmiles. I'll pick this up next time it goes on sale... Hopefully!

:o Deathsmiles is all I need for this genre. For some reason my eyes burn after I play that.. then I get real sleepy.

Seems Amazon is selling it for the same price.

I smell an impending price war! Nice find. Isomer Games and Most Wanted got into a price war over the Capcom Digital Collection recently. Let's hope for a repeat. :)

o.o; And another thing about Deathsmiles, the Limited Edition usually goes on sale regularly on Newegg or Amazon for $14.99 with the soundtrack CD and faceplate.

This is now down to $17.12 on Amazon (3rd party seller, FSSS):

Also still available on Newegg for 19.99. And FYI in case anyone didn't hear about it, Under Defeat HD is going to be released in North America for PS3 (retail and download), by Rising Star Games:

No word yet on a 360 version unfortunately, but I'll take the game on whatever formats they release it on!! Great news for shmup fans.

Under Defeat is PS3 only in the US, so it will have a smaller print.

Akai Katana was exclusive to the 360 in the US and that did little to stop it from hitting $20. Does Sony allow publishers to press fewer copies of games than Microsoft does?

Xbox 360 games requires a minim print of 50,000. Sony doesn't.
