Any additional updates to this list?

I'll start comparing it to the other notes I have an I'm hoping to do a shopping guide like I did with the Saturn

I see a few things that could be updated :D

The European release of Dodonpachi Ressurection is not technically region free, as it won't play on a Japanese console. It was just made specifically to work on NTSC-U consoles.

For Espgaluda II Black Label, only the Standard Edition and Platinum Edition are region free, the Limited Edition is not.

A few I don't see on there:

Strike Witches Shirogane no Tsubasa (Region Locked)
Sakura Flamingo Archives (Region locked)

Game Centre Love - ~Plus Pengo!~ (Region Free)
Bullet Soul -INFINITE BURST- (Region Free)

Are you interested in documenting each individual release, or is just covering each game enough? (Example, Ginga Force and Eschatos had a dual-pack release). Also, do you think its worth noting physical, region-locked games that are still playable on other region's consoles (Example, Deathsmiles IIX is downloadable on the Games on Demand for US, but its retail version is locked).

Hopefully this helps a bit :)

I would like to mention variations so I can share the values for each.
I'm also hoping to share region status for each as well.

And I would like to make note of region locked imports available via digital. It might be nice for those that would like to purchase a physical buy play digital.

And yes, this is very helpful!
