Well it looks like a desparate PSN gimmick if it wasn't also coming out to the PC, think I'll stick with the 360 where the exclusive live arcade games look 100x more fun than this.
The guys making this are independent, not Sony, so calling it a PSN gimmick makes no sense. Also, bringing up XBLA for no reason and saying it's "100x more fun" makes you look immature and sound like a fanboy.

Disney needs to get that supposedly super elite (guitar) tone recognition software they've been showing a few E3's ago and make it where you can play these plastic guitar controllable games with a real guitar. Just assign a chord or note to a colored button function and get some experience in a skill you might be able to actually use.

yeah, its a rhythm game

Edited by Bubahula

i would be way more intrested if they werent calling it a shooter because all it looks like is a simple rhythm game , which is fine but they seem to be relying on the fact that its the "first shooter you play in reverse"
 edit :10 songs?

Made sense after watching video.

Cool looking game, with a nice modern take.

Hey, ten songs are better than three -- the amount the Bit.Trip games have per installment. And for all we know, there could be plans to release more songs via download. "
Oh, i dont really play games like this so thought that was a low number. Thanks

I always wanted to play the original C64 Retrograde, never saw it at the time but saw lots about it in magazines, looked awesome.

Posted by TheePeaceFrog

Woah, that is new.

Posted by delete3

That looks like an awesome game. Can't wait to try it out!

Edited by buzz_clik

I remember hearing about this a while ago and thinking it sounded like a great gimmick for a game. I didn't realise just how much of a rhythm game it would turn out to be, however. Pretty cool.

Obviously this is not to be confused with the classic shooter Retrograde.

Oh, I thought you would be flying right to left...

Posted by Crono

very unique concept, just shows that there is indeed room for growth in long standing genres

Posted by Kyle

That is bizarre.... I don't think I even understand it...

Posted by GoodKn1ght

silly jeff, HASN"T been mentioned yet.
it actually kinda made me laugh

Posted by ShowNun

Yeah, everything that makes a shooter a shooter is lost here. This is just a skin for a rhythm game.

Posted by Mootalstrike

Looks sweet.

"yo man, we got dis shit hurr called retro/grade!"
Posted by Pie

Only 10 songs...

Posted by MattBodega

I had to spend a minute starring at the damn thing before it clicked. Hopefully it all works out....maybe it could be cool!

Posted by caseylakes

sounded better than it looked =[

Posted by Branthog

Fine, but what does Solja-BoyTell'em have to say about it?

Posted by Kayrack

holy crap

Posted by JackiJinx

Cool. Where does my Power Pad fit into all of this?

Posted by PureRok

If it's played in reverse, does that mean you fight the boss first and go all the way back to the first level?

Does that mean that the game gets progressively easier?

Posted by Harknett

That ship never runs outta that time rewindin' potion! 

Posted by HatKing

I got to admit the one thing the Playstation consistently has me jealous on is the weird downloadable games, from this to Noby Noby Boy to Flower I really wish some this bizarre shit would make it to the XBLA.

Posted by Dalai

Bit.Trip Beat meets R-Type meets Braid?

I can get behind that.

Posted by MmmSkyscraper

Weak.

Posted by JJOR64

Looks interesting.  I might have to check it out once it releases.

Posted by 71Ranchero

I dont think I could be any less excited over a shmup.

I tried the demo on steam. It's a novel idea but bleh pass. I didn't find it fun at all just an interesting concept piece.

Edited by Novyx

I played the demo on Steam a while back, and it IS pretty much just a reskinned rhythm game... and the music... is not the most amazing. I'm not saying it's bad; just one of those 'not for everyone' games.

Posted by Sgt_T1bbs

Looks really neat but if its just a rhythm game with a space shooter "skin" on it(as was mentioned earlier) then i'm out.

By a lot you mean one. You can reverse time to fix your fuck ups.

Wow, what the hell.
