Ben Schlichter Writes: Ah, one of the first full weeks we've had in awhile.
SHMUP collection R-Type Dimensions, containing R-Type 1 and R-Type 2 in HD + extras opens up with a strong 3-day week. Unit wise, it performed very similar to fellow shmup's Ikaruga, Rez HD and Galaga Legions. What made R-Type perform very well, however, is the price. It was $5 USD higher than any other one of 2008's big shmups. Led by high conversion rates in Japan (who'd of thought?), expect this one to see massive drops in the near future.
