These were great games and I hope we can get the full line up of the SMT games. I dont know what the problem is of just releasing them online? There is no publishing involved, the games are complete...isnt it just profit?
There's some emulation invovled and it's a little bit more complicated on the programming side. It's the reason why we haven't seen some games released as PSone classics. I don't have the interview handy, but I remember reading how some games had hard-crashes, others had bugs that didn't exist in the original version, etc. It's all related to the fact that, at its core, playing these games on the newer console is in effect emulation.
