@wmaustin55: I think the problem is that the "purist" PC gaming community is one of the most reactionary communities out there. This will simply be used as ammo by companies to not listen to the internet and/or petitions for PC ports in the future; there will be plenty of people not bothering to buy it anymore over one vague statement taken out of context, and when you add in the piracy issues, this is going to make the attractiveness of a PC port even lower for companies. Namco is expecting decentish sales, and hence put out a port with some extra content slapped in. If those sales fail to be realized over this, they're going to blame the community and PC gaming as a whole, and it wouldn't be a stretch of the imagination to have other publishers follow suit.
The Dark Souls petition always seemed like a bad idea for everyone involved, and now I'm finally seeing why. I'm not blaming the PC gaming community solely (Namco/FromSoftware are putting in zero effort, basically), but the vocal minority that were screaming "Port it! PORT IT!" will now be screaming "Fuck you! FUCK YOU!" and, well, it's not going to end well for anyone involved.
