Gunstar Heroes Targeting PlayStation Network?

imageAll signs are pointing to an Xbox Live Arcade version of Treasure classic Gunstar Heroes. The game got rated and an achievement list leaked. What about the PS3?


Chances seem promising for a PlayStation 3 version of Gunstar Heroes too. PEGI, Europe’s ESRB, rated Gunstar Heroes as a PlayStation Network game as well as an Xbox Live Arcade game.


Gunstar Heroes is a blast if you like Contra and have a friend to play with. The only enhancement a possible Xbox Live Arcade version needs is online play. Since Streets of Rage 2 had it, I can’t imagine Sega re-releasing Gunstar Heroes without online co-op.

    I would LOVE for Gunstar Heroes to come out on PSN. It was one of my favorite Genesis titles back in the day!

    How much you want to bet Microsoft pays to keep this one exclusive to XBLA in America just like they have with Outrun Arcade, and Crystal Defenders. I am getting really tired of MS doing that, not because I don’t have a 360 but because it does not give me the option of choosing which one I want and since most of my firends have PS3’s it would be great to play some of these classics online with them.
