The Xbox 360 seems to be the shmup console of choice. Japanese gaming rag Famitsu reported that Cave’s second newest shump Death Smiles is getting ported to the 360 Spring 2009. Death Smiles will join several other notable shumps in the Japanese 360 catalog, including Ketsui, Dodonpachi DOJ Black Lable, Raiden IV, and Raiden Fighters Aces. The game will be a retail release (not a XBLA game) and will almost certainly not be released stateside, which really sucks because as of now playing import games on a US 360 is impossible, even with hardware modifications.

I found out on Kotaku. It’s a pretty big deal, for Sony and Microsoft. But one thing to keep in mind: is FFXIII even going to be any good?
