Radiant Silvergun for Xbox 360

According to the article, Microsoft approached Treasure regarding a Radiant Silvergun remake for XBLA. For anyone who has not played it before, it's sort of the unofficial predecessor to Ikaruga, and is one of the sought-after (and thus grossly overpriced) gems for Saturn. I've only played it once, at the Classic Gaming Expo in San Francisco a few years ago...but it was quite good.

Should be interesting to see what happens here.

I kinda wondered if they would go out and try getting this game for the XBLA, they already got Ikaruga.

Now the question is if there is a good arcade stick at a reasonable price for the 360 as I hate the freaking dpad on the 360 controller. That is the reason I never picked up ikaruga as it was such a pain to play with the dpad on that, so I just stuck to the dreamcast version.
