There's something unfortunate about steam though. It's mainly all other countries that steam sales are good for. Japan does not know steam very well at the moment. It's slowly being recognized but I doubt many of the japanese companies will be using it.
AFAIK, the main "trigger" that made Falcom step away from PC games was because they had some BIG PC games distributor in Japan, whose name I forgot, who stopped distributing all of Falcom's games. (Consequence of non-amazing PC game sales, likely.)
Thus, they were FORCED to migrate. (Else the company would have to close, I believe.) The PSP was chosen because it showed to have GOOD sales of their games in Japan, and also because programming games for the PSP was similar to programming games for the PC, Falcom commented.
I wonder if both PCs and PS platforms having Java in common is what makes things so common between both, but this might not be the reason.
In any case, that's how things are. To summarize, if Falcom does get some big name distributor again, it's possible they might CO-develop things for the PC, or port to the PC. They certainly won't stick to being PC-only: why lose a stable, solid market and fanbase granted by the PSP/PSVita?
i don't know what their stance however the guys above provided pretty good info and reasons, but what is bothers me is that i hate to play on small screen but what can we do this gen only buys rpg games on handhelds so i don't blame falcom for focusing on handhelds. the only thing that pains me is that Ys seven (which is the first Ys made specifically for psp didn't have the same strong atmosphere and quality of ark of napishtim, OIF and etc, i'm not saying it was bad it was pretty good but i preferred the style of the previous Ys games on pc
