Well, sometimes I wonder if it's a dev-pub powerplay.

From Software wants to make an excellent port but would need additional funding for it. The publisher only allowed it because of fan requests but isn't willing to allow the resources that would be needed (both in Yen and in time, it really looks like they have a deadline and not a when it's done philosofy from the publishers). Them admitting openly they are having trouble with the port feels like they are trying to get the publisher to allow them more time and resources.

Anyway that's just me looking optimistically at the developer and pessimistically at the publisher.

If the publisher actually allowed that interview, then yeah, I agree: "why bother?"

Also the PC has never really been a big platform in Japan, and as it has been said the Japanese games industry is already in trouble because they fail to do well in the west and the attitude with this game looks like just another example of how they just don't get it.
