I just have to say this. I really really don't like it when people say "If Square was smart they'd bring it here". It's not that simple. You know the entire reason why Final Mixes have always been released in Japan without question is because the games are developed locally, produced locally, and distributed locally. The cost for "local" productions do *not* cost as much money as it would if it was an international release. Once you start dealing with international productions, your budget goes right through the roof. Final Mix has for the most part, stayed in Japan because they make money over there. The ratio of returns versus money spent to produce the game are far more in favour of profit within national borders than international ones. And because the Final Mix games aren't new games in themselves, but re-made ones of the original with extras, the selling point for the game is by no means on par with a 100% completely new game title. You all need to stop objectifying your love for the game with what you think SE's 'best course of action' is regarding these Final Mixes. It's not an easy choice to make. It's a gamble. You need to understand that. EDIT: Also, of course games are made for the fans, but at the end of the day, Square-Enix is a business. And if that business wants to continue making games for its people and keep making money to continue making said games, they need to survive the market and avoid a shutout by competitors.
