5pb to make games for the PS3

Cyberfront/Grev started the PS3 movement for X360 developers with Mamoru-kun, and now we see 5pb jumping on board. Wonder who will be next.

I certainly hope I won't have to buy a PS3 in the next few years. Good to know most of the good recent shmups of the last 1.5 decades have already made it through on the x360 (best Cave, Seibu, and Treasure at least). >_>

[EDIT]
Ah, so Chiyomaru is going for multiplatform, not PS3 exclusive, that's a good move indeed. Hope it'll turn out alright for 5pb, we need more active shmup developers nowadays to keep the genre as alive and fresh as reasonably possible.

Yeah, I doubt we'll see any major, retail PS3 exclusive 2D shooter releases. But it'll be nice if those who only own a PS3 can join in on some of the X360 shooter fun. :)

Cave seem fed up with MS and sales have dropped so it wouldn't surprise me if they went multi-platform at least. It's up to Sony I guess. They should've courted Cave from the start rather than being so anti-2D.

It seems the games that are on the PS3 are still 3-D though, right?  So Cave wouldn't really work out even if they could overcome the dev fee issues.

That seems like a rather expensive investment though. If they can over come it, then that's definitely a possibility. However there's no real region locking on the PS3 which doesn't seem to be what Cave likes.
