    I downloaded the trailer for this one this morning from the Live Marketplace, it does look like a lot of fun!
    I was a huge fan of Super Bomberman on the SNES.

    I'm a bit confused as to what the 360 version actually is though. When I first heard the Bomberman rumours many months ago, I thought it'd be a Live Arcade title.
    But now it's clear that it's actually a whole new game, but surely even a new rendition of Bomberman isn't worthy of full retail price?
    I wonder if we'll see this one along the price range of Table Tennis.

    Since I only got into the console market with the first xbox my best experince of bomberman was the one on the PC by Hudson, had up to 16 players i belive over network now that was fun.

    To be bomberman is top down action, none of this 3d mlarky if they include the tradition top down view then i might look at it, but will wait for the reviews to come out first or a demo

    They should put the original top down as an option, agreed.
