Is there a reason we left off Radiant Silvergun from this list? I honestly can't remember.

Anyone see any other omissions?

Do we want to include the shooters that are in the Game Room and the Capcom Arcade Cabinet?

It's a big list for a modern console. I've got some of the PAL releases and a couple of xbla releases.

I was always under the imprwssion that the ntsc-J console was THE ONE to iwn but my PAL machine gets a lot of bullet action. I'm wondering if it's worth it to me to invest another £170 in a ntsc-J console fir the number of Jp region exclusive titles.

Raiden Fighter Aces has tempted me from day 1....

Same question as above. Except now Caladrius has been added to the list of Japanese exclusives, and it looks like a good game. Plus I still really fancy the Raiden Fighter series...

Waddayathink? Do I still need a Jp 360? :?

I'm a bit torn as well, though I only have an NTSC 360. There are a few exclusive titles that are region free and I am working on picking those up, but it might be easier to just import a system and get access to all of the games without worrying about regions.

I don't see a REAL strong argument for needing a JPN 360 anymore. The big one of interest for me was Ketsui, but now that's on PS3, so I'm a happy camper :)

Are you playing Ketsui yet, Dave? Interested to hear your thoughts. We started a score thread for it, but waiting on a couple others for their copies to arrive.

I'd be really interested in detailed comments from any owners of:
Ginga Force
Caldrius
Eschatos
Bullet Soul

Those are the ones i'm still holding back on.

The only shooter on 360 I haven't really enjoyed was Otemedius Excellent - though i'd like to try it again - sold it pretty prematurely.
