Here's how I see the situation.

From Software was perfectly happy to leave this game on console only, but fans petitioned and begged them to put it on PC, and they agreed to do it. (a mistake imo)

Now partway into development, they're having a hard time with it; harder than they thought. Now that they've agreed to do it, in the middle of this frustration, fans are asking them to promise not just a port, but that they went back to the drawing board and reworked the game to run better. And they're simply answering with an honest "No, we're just doing the port."

I don't like apologizing for developers, but I feel bad for From in a way. I think they should have never agreed to do something based only on fan petitions. I think they should have left it alone on the consoles where they were receiving praise, because I think PC fans will rip them apart, despite having begged for the game.

I played the game on PS3 and I loved it, but I don't think it will translate well to PC RPG fans.
