Yooooooooooooooooooo! Finally someone who understands the true value of
a good shootemup. This is great news indeed! And I thought they only used
the ludicruous power of modern consoles for stinking 3D platformers and
sport games.

Yes, that's the great things about consoles: the games keep getting better,
since they don't have to chase the customer's hardware.

Now, to bring this back ontopic: Tempting as it may be, I don't think SDL
on a PS2 really makes sense. Even if there was a cheap way for amateurs
to program the beast, the coding model is so different from anything PCish
that it is going to be a very poor fit.
