Good argued. Many apologies if I might have insulted you and put you in the wrong corner; you don't seem to be one of "them". If I'd read your first post more attentive, I would have recognized that someone of "them" probably wouldn't know or care about the original japanese release.
BUT... the 8 cd's you mentioned were part of the Limited Edition, and such editions aren't offered for the same prices as the standard versions, of course. Why should gog offer them, (which is lossless audio) for download? Why should I buy a Limited or Collectors Edition if the ingredients will be part of a cheaper digital release? I guess your "comparing" between 8 CD's (of the LE) and no music (gog-release) made me a bit upset...
Furthermore gog.com isn't that free - I strongly assume that - to offer what they want or what we would like to see as part of the offered game. There are always contracts and licenses and all of this 'crap'. ;) How often I must have sighed to see there's no music included as goodie :(
Maybe more goodies will be added later if NF/XSeed see that their games are gonna be bought well at gog.com.
PS: Sometimes we're all biased - in one way or another. ;P
Apologies accepted and I understand where that comment could have come from, but we should try to avoid guessing and putting people in the position of react to defend themself.
Even if that person doesn't know of the japanese edition, he could be informed insted of blaming him for not knowing, maybe new information could simply change his perception of the topic.
I wouldn't expect gog to release 8 cd of sountrack for free, but from there to have a release without neither the main soundtrack for this particular game, the least I could say is that is a pity. I understand that that soundtrack should be provided first by XSEED because GOG has an agreement with them, but that doesn't make the lack of a sountrack extras less daunting.
About the Limited Edition, I believe it's not available anymore, so I doubt that whatever price the sountrack could have, it would impact the sales. I personally own a copy of that LE, but I wouldn't mind a digital version of it and it would be a really good addition to the gog release.
