I just wanted to say, this year looks unbelievably good for 360 disc-based shmups so far.
Ginga Force - out now Caladrius - 4/25 XIIZEAL & DeltaZEAL (shooting love 10th anniversary) - 5/30 Saidaioujou - 5/30
And that's only the first half of the year.
I'm definitely getting all of them, although I can't get Ginga Force until next month because I blew my cash on pcbs this month. --- Raizing. Psikyo. Toaplan.

Soukyugurentai is one of my fave shmups. The style and gameplay is unique and definitely challenging as it's by Raizing. The PS1 version has a OP fighter plane which is pretty fun if you're just looking to destroy everything.
Ibara for consoles is only on PS2 (PAL) as far as I know. Ketsui for consoles is only for Xbox (PAL) as far as I know. If you're interested in Ibara and don't have a PAL PS2, Pink Sweets is a sequel to that and it's available on Xbox, region-free.
No, Ibara on PS2 is NTSC-J only (japanese region) as is Ketsui on xbox360 (japanese region ONLY). Ketsui WILL NOT work on a euro or usa 360 console.
Skipping Ginga Force for now, but count me in for Caladrius and SDOJ (obviously). --- we... must... save... this... doomed... world...
