But why isn't there a PC version of the FF XIII trilogy?


Because they don't want to torture the PC crowd.

even though they said all that, i don't see pc version for 15 happening for a long, long time. maybe by the time 15-2 comes out? but really, i wonder what the reason is. so many other multiplatform developers have pc releases for their games. i can't imagine how many people would love to play ff games on glorious pc-ultra settings. maybe it's a piracy issue.



This.

Back when FF7 came out on PC, pirating obviously existed but it wasn't nearly as user-firendly as it is today. Also back then download speeds were ridiculously slow.

Why don't they release mainline FFs on PCs? They released FF VII and VIII and then they stopped. I remember that when FF XIII was firstly announced it was also for PCs but they scrapped the project. Now they are considering a PC release. Is there a know reason for that?


Do you evem realize how easy it is to play the entire FF series on PC? Just the first six can be played through emulator, and if you're smart enough or whatever then also most of the others.

It's obnoxious when gameFAQers rank the Final Fantasy games in their sigs. Like, I don't care.

I guess that's what people at Square are thinking. Why release PC version of the games? Our clients can play them for free through emulation. Also, why make a FF X remaster? They can play that too.

The PC ports for VII and VIII had lots of technical issues if I'm remembering correctly. Maybe it would be easier for them to do ports now since the PS4 and Xbone have architecture more similar to a PC.
