I just thought of something:

Pink Sweets should have leaderboard replays to download. YOS.K has the WR in Pink Sweets. YOS.K plays the X360 ports quite a lot, appearing on many of the leaderboards.

YOS.K  :o

Let's hope CAVE forces you to upload replays for it then and not make it optional.

Although I'll sound like a bitchy kid, I hope they include some fake scanlinen options (since we aren't getting HD visuals)

Good on cave. This is real fan service. I now await the DDP2
Beestorm port :lol:

Not to sound bad or anything...but now that we know Cave are willing to dig deep into their catalog and make "combo packs"...I kinda wish they had done that w/ Guwange instead of making it an xbla release. 

A Guwange + Esprade combo pack would have been cool.

MMP and PS are from 2006-2007, neither of the games you listed are from the 2000s. I think that's the reason for a retail release.

Bet it will be region locked to NTSC-J.

Then USA will see a port a year later, but no love for European Cave fans. :(

I wonder if they will put in an autofire B feature for the Pink Sweets port. I know DEL says he can get rank up high enough by stage 3 without autofire, but with it built in as a feature, could further validate infinite lives as a scoring strategy.

They better include that, or at the very least let us map multiple buttons to the same input (then just use a stick with rapid fire).

I'm glad to see these getting ports....  but I am kinda bummed that they won't have the HD overhalls. I wonder why they decided not to? I always assumed that they all ready had the assets.

It might have less to do with the issue of HDing the graphics and more with the fact that they (kind of) necessitate an extra mode that needs to be coded and tested.

I just don't think they have the time, and/or money to do both games in HD, so they're just going to focus on the extra modes and porting the arcade games. I'm sure they don't expect this release to sell as much as their more popular games like Deathsmiles or Futari, which is why we should be pretty thankful they're doing it at all.

Would you rather have MMP in HD as a standalone release or Pink Sweets and MMP together, but no HD for either? They probably mulled that question over and went with the latter to please their fans, and get the most bang for their buck.

I guess to be more specific...   why would it take more work or cost more money to have the HD visuals. It has to be ported one way or the other, I figured they all ready had the foreground sprite work in HD since the beginning of the PCB. So during the porting process I would assume it would be just a matter of picking sprite A (lowres/upscaled) or sprite B (hi-res).

This makes it seem as if they did not have all these assets all ready in HD and had to re-render, re-work and tweak alot more than i had assumed for the other 360 ports.

Then again I guess the regular non HD arcade modes on the other SH3 ports could have just been emulated, while the 360 HD modes were recodes from scratch to a degree?

Oh well....    I would have liked to see MMP in hi-res. M2 is NOT handling these are they?

The games just look so awful in arcade mode though.  Not sure if I will support this one.

Nope. There is no emulation used in any Cave port released thus far on the X360. All are ported, which is why there are slowdown/speed differences in many of them.

Ketsui looked fine on my LCD. I have no complaints here!
So happy to see MMP getting a release after all EOJ's praise for the game.
Pink sweets is a bonus. I would have rather seen Kuro but who knows? Its looking good for cave fans :)

As long as it looks like Ketsui/DOJ, it's fine to me.

This is seriously boner inducing news.  Love it!  I may actually have to get a J360 soon for this.

I added a poll to the first post. I'm curious if more people are buying this mainly for Pink Sweets or Muchi Muchi Pork. Vote and let me know!

Easy poll for me. Pink Sweets all the way. Haven't tried and thus haven't fallen in love with MMP yet. It's probably equally awesome though.

I played MMP a few times and think it's the best Cave / Yagawa game. Very happy this gets a port :)

As for Pink Sweets - I hope it will get an Arrange Mode that is actually playable ;)

I sold both my kits a few months ago to fund bills and a new Macbook Pro, so the news of both of them coming to the 360 has been quite pleasant indeed. Hope they get decent, accurate ports, as more people need to experience these awesome games.

As for the poll, no "buying for both games" option? :P

I've never played Pink Sweets, so while it's supposedly hard as kryptonite nails, I see myself playing it extensively. Muchi Muchi Pork never clicked with me, but last time I played it it was much more fun then I could remember. Really stoked for the arrange modes as well. I'm so glad I went straight for a J-360!

I'm more excited for Pink Sweets, but I'm expecting to play Pork a lot more.
