Is there a reason this can't happen that I'm not seeing?

Because the 3D version is the "most current" version. The PSP version was made as a final complete works for the 2D version before it was totally replaced by the 3D one.
All future rereleases of FFIV will be based on the 3D one.

the answer to this is the same answer 90% of the baffling questions that get asked here

.......it's money


There is no "money" reason to *not* make these available on PC.

Yes there is. Making it for PC will cost development time. Once it is made for PC, there's the risk of piracy. Some companies (like EA when it comes to most sport series) don't like PC because they assume all their games will be pirated. Which equals no money for them and wasted time spending money developing it for PC.

Yes, I know, they WOULD make a lot of money through Steam and such, but this is probably part of their attitude about putting it on PC. There's nothing we can do about it. Just emulate it in 4K at 60FPS and be happy.

The 3D version is the worst version and that's an awful argument anyway.

First paragraph: Yes, it's a money issue because of "reasons".

Second paragraph: Yes, they would make a lot of money because of "reasons".

-_-

And 4k does not matter with these games unless your native res is 4k.

I just meant that they THINK they wouldn't make money, even though they actually would. We can't convince them, though.

And yes. Luckily I have two 4K monitors and games hardly even needs any anti-aliasing when running at 4K.
If you don't have a 4K screen, then you know.. just use whatever you've got. Emulating will always look better than the native resolution the games ran at on the consoles.

Meh. Original system on original display with the scanlines still looks better. It's like vinyl. I'd still rather be able to go legit pure digital with all of this on PC.

I'm sure they know they'd make money. Probably some ego thing going on with the new blood vs the stuff the old generation did that's better than anything they'll ever produce. Forge their own s***ty path and try not to acknowledge what gave them the position they can make money by running the properties into the ground with anyway.

and who even knows where the original files for the PS1-or-earlier games are these days.

They did get FF9 on PC though so they aren't totally opposed. I get it though. When company does it it's sensible. When random person suggests company do that exact thing, look at all the hurdles dumbass, just go illegal avenues, it'll never happen. -_-

Also the ROMs are all over the f***ing internet. Does anyone read posts or just swipe and move on mentality? jfc

Meh. I got in touch with them about a bug in a music track in DQV Android. They acknowledged it but took nearly a year to fix it -_-
