Thank God This Came out for the PS3. I really loved the old NES Contra Games but hated the PS2 contra game. For Awhile I thought that this might be a XB360 exlusive. I bought this last night ( I guess you can say I stole it for $15.00) and I played it for about 6hrs. Its pretty awesome. Can't wait to get home to play it some more! Ps. The backgrounds and animations are great!!
