    What about the earlier Langrisser games? Some of those are stellar, maybe they could be put on the PSN.
    Sony policy is you cannot modify the ISO that was originally released when you make a PSN release, and since those games weren't released in English, we couldn't hack English in (though we're able) and have Sony approve it, so it would have to be released in Japanese, and, well, that would not go over well.

    Do you know what the reasoning behind that policy is? Every digital release, even those emulated ROMs, need to be approved by rating boards, do they not? Could they run into legal issues if they would allow language patches?

    No, I doubt that. I don't know for sure, but my *guess* is it has more to do with not having to re-QA all those titles. If they're identical to what was released before, they know that passed QA originally. Rating or re-rating would be trivial.

    I was thinking (after my previous post) that simply adding language patches might also depreciate the perceived overall value of games in the PlayStation Store. Gamers might not be willing to pay $10-$15 for "just a language patch" (again, I'm mainly talking about perception here), whereas Sony would like to keep the average games price in the Store as high as possible.

    Is Sony paying for QA themselves? Because if publishers are paying for it, how is that a problem for that? Unless it wouldn't go down well with publishers that they have to pay extra for QA on games that have already passed QA.

    I'm actually not sure how much I can say (what's public knowledge vs stuff that's not). We're pretty deep in the forest with these questions now.

    Ok, no problem, we'll leave it at that. I just find that stuff really interesting. :-)

    Just going to go out and say that it's been my observation that "it depends". It depends upon who you are, and it depends upon the game. If anything seems to be true, Sony doesn't have concrete rules for anything. Case in point, their involvement in Shenmue III to obtain console exclusivity. Even if it's limited to marketing, there seems to have been a business decision and some sort of transaction that cannot be disclosed. That appears to be how it all works.
