Re: Suikoden I and II re-release questoin

Mar 28, 2006
What's funny is that their biggest portable rival, Nintendo, has made a killing on remakes for portable systems.  Look at the number of remakes for the GBA: Several Mario games, Tale of Phantasia, Metroid, Final Fantasy 1, 2, 4, and soon 3 (for the DS), 5, and 6.  You would think that they would look at their competition and say "What are they doing that we are not?"

I think I can understand where SCEA is coming from in a "We don't want to be looked at like an inferior or reshash company" sense, but when you quickly notice that a great deal of the PSP's library are just mediocre PS2 ports anyway, it doesn't make sense as a whole.

It's not fair to the gamer, especially when, like you said, I could go pick up a great port for any Nintendo system to a game I love, and that the Revolution will do well based on its port capabilities. Furthermore, if people buy these "inferior" or ported games, aren't SCEA seeing profits from it?

Seriously, is this really a surprise to you all?  SCEA has been doing this for years, and I don't see it changing, ever...

I agree with everything that has been said about SCEA needing to bring over these remakes and ports of RPG's from Japan. I mean we all know that the PSP is doing so well with it's library of great games. Ooops! My bad, I was thinking about Nintendo.. the King of handheld gaming.
