Rerelease, just for a new start date for copyrights and new dollars, while keeping input costs low. It happens all the times, under every media copyrightlaw (books, music, movies, games etc. none excluded).
Television was the new Radio
VHS was the new BIOS/TV
VCD/CDi was the new VHS
DVD was the new VCD/CDi
HD-DVD was ment to be the new DVD, but BluRay got it right.
Now everything is going to be Full HD with 3D along the corner. Tomorrow people decide to drop 3D or get heavy migrains and another media is there to take over...
The question is what's wrong with that? I mean I get rereleases all the time for stuff I didnt get on its own time. A pretty good example is the gow series I didnt play them on the ps2, or my watchmen book I got the newest edition because I've never read it. So what's wrong with rereleases?
PS3news got it right, preservation, all these collections, all the rereleases, the emus, the retro stuff the blast to the pasts are none other than preservation forms. I havent played, read, watched a lot of material thats pretty damn good now a days. Im still waiting to play FFVI once I get the time to play it, and thats a snes game!!

I own FFX and FFX2, is it legal for me to download the international edition? If I can't do that, then can I modify my FFX bin/cue to have the international options? If not I can only import it, or wait for re-mastered edition?
With The space of bluray I hope they do take a cue from sly cooper and do like three games per disc, then it'll definitely be worth the money. I could care less about Trophys but HD classic = win in my book
Hardly "Backwards compatibility". Pretty much the only console that has backwards compatibility is the Wii, I don't know of any GameCube games that are not compatible.
As far as I'm aware, the only differences between a wii and a gamecube is the wireless support and a whopping 244Mhz extra in the processor, and 81Mhz in gpu. It's like playing vista games on windows 7. Not a big change to have to overcome.
I agree though, that $ony with all it's big sue-everyone money should be able to develop an emulator.. and make it free to use. Well, now that I think of it, they are probably running out of money by this point with lawyer's fees and need to 'squeeze blood out of a turnip' so to speak.
