Hi guys

Can anyone recommend me some good shmups on the PS3?

Looks like Xbox360's getting all the action as of late...

Soldner X
Hitogata Happa and the other games in that collection.
Everyday Shooter
R-type Delta if you're into PSone classics

If you really want a huge list, best to get a Japanese PSN account, buy those yen cards and sample a huge amount of Japanese goodness. I got these from the Asian stores.

R-Type Delta
Phantasma or whatever its called

I really enjoyed Astro Tripper, though that's more of a Defender-style game, so that might not be what you're looking for.

I'm just sad :cry: that MS rubbed Radiant Silvergun in our face at TGS, and it's an exclusive for all intents and purposes since MS Games Studios funded the project for Treasure to port it. So as far as I see it no timed exclusivity, which sucks.

I think Sony needs to start throwing buckets of cash at Treasure and Sega to convince them to port their XBL ports to the PSN, I'd like to see Rez, Ikaruga (even though I own it on DC and GC already) and Radiant Silvergun too, like my RRoD system owning fellow gamers.
