this is the only way they can sell Japanese Xbox 360's. They sucker all of us from around the world that want these great shmup's into buying hardware!

They really do just need to release them on XBLA for 1200 points. Why not?? The real reason MS wanted to cut down games was behind the user interface. They couldn't make it easy enough to browse so much content so they started thinning it out. Now that they have a new User Interface coming out in fall maybe they won't be as harsh.

These games would just get nowhere at retail stores. Ikaruga and the other shooters on XBLA haven't done huge business, but at least they didn't blow as much money on distribution and publishing.
