Fun part in that it's that Nintendo actually showed that multiple times.Just because something isn't currently available, doesn't mean it won't ever be. People downloading roms of "too expensive" games devalues their worth. You see it on sites like these all the time, where you'll see companies make their old games available only for people to become incredulous and be like "Charging $25 for a 10 year old game?!" For a company like sega, something like PDS still holds a lot of value, and if it ever gets remade, that value will be why. There is much less incentive to put in a lot of work to re-release something -- you know, what several in this topic are claiming is actual preservation -- if people will just pirate it instead.
Copies of Earthbound are now worth a fraction of what they were.
Same with Prime Trilogy or even US Xenoblade.
Now these games are pretty much in reasonable pricing.
