SHMUPS XIII - DoDonPachi Saidaioujou

I bought DoDonPachi Saidaioujou for $80. It is the last SHMUP for Xbox 360. Xbox One SHMUPs will cost more money.
Last month I also bought Axelay and Gaiares.  photo xbox360shmup_zpsc1bd9313.jpg

Updated Playstation 4 impressions

I’ll make this brief.  Just finished watching Sony’s press conference.  I couldn’t believe it.
No DRM, no restrictions on used games, a cavalcade of interesting exclusives (including Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3) and it’s $100 cheaper than the XBox One!  I think Sony just launched a major offensive against Microsoft, and consumer reaction has, thus far, been remarkably swift.  However, the only bad thing about the PS4 is that PlayStation Plus will be required for online play, which is similar to the XBox 360′s Live subscription service, but for offline single player games, it’s not needed.
The console design itself, the one thing I was personally looking forward to seeing, looks uniquely strange, but serviceable.
Sony played their cards right and handily sucker-punched the XBox One like Rocky through Clubber Lang’s face, but don’t declare the PS4 the automatic victor just yet.  Microsoft has yet to respond to the press conference.  And from the looks of things, they’ve got a lot of holes to plug in that sinking ship of theirs!
But, in all fairness, I wish both consoles the best success.  For now, it seems, Sony’s gained the advantage in this latest war between video game consoles.
