I saw the news and said out loud "Well fucking done XSEED!"
Still curious on the "other" news of XSEED being registered on Steam.
Arrghh, I really don't like the sound of that. While I want TitS SC, I just soooooooo much want it on the PSP, not the PC. I want a real physical copy.....not to mention on the same game system......& just not on a PC. I'm not comfortable gaming on my pc, it's at a desk with a chair made for sitting, not for relaxing....ofcoarse, I'm just one person And I'm venting. I suppose if they go that route, I'll just have to buy the Steam release, & then try to atleast track down the Jp PSP release to ease myself.
I speculate that if XSEED is to release games on Steam, that they will be either ports (in addition to their console/handheld releases -- such as a Chinese (IIRC) port of Ys Seven for the PC), or (like Corpse Party) games that they would like to release at the lowest risk possible. I don't believe that this will affect whether or not their games are released on their native system(s), especially since there are already services similar to Steam for (correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that this is without exception, to the best of my knowledge) every next-gen system -- whether announced, or presently available.

I was hugely disappointed with the game myself, but it's really quite interesting in many ways, and I think it definitely deserves a go in the US market. Many props to XSEED for snagging such a high profile title! It's amazing that in less than ten years, they've grown to the point where they're now working with the father of Final Fantasy. ^^
