In topic What's the 3GB update for?
Wait what? If the update was only adding additional language text why it's so damn huge? Well, if it were voices added it's a different matter, but text, holly ♥♥♥♥!
Well, for the Mech, it's actually for hyping up the second game, and one of cliffhanger device, so it's understandable.

In topic Fears Regarding the Translation Are Well Founded
That's normal if you have too many translator and editor working in one game... with tight deadline and only do it for money.
Rean x Alisa as canon as you can get. Even Falcom make spinoff animenovel series "Magical Girl Alisa Magica" with those two as cover image and even manage to slip into another game (read: Tokyo Xanadu).

No, it's dual audio and triple sub but for Japanese audio and French sub you must download the DLC from PSN (it's free). Probably they do that because PSVita cartridge is not enough space to contain it.

In topic Should i play all the previous games?
Well, I suggest you play Felghana or I+II first. Don't play Origin before you finished I+II tho so you don't lose references.

Adol prefer Dogi more than any of blue/orange haired grill.

In topic Will NISA fix the translation? (Updated)
Actually they already fail here:
Dana's name should be Iclucia not Icarusia. Heck, if they do a little research they should have know proper romanication not the weeb one. It's already written in one OST name (Iclucian Dance):
And they don't even bother to correct it.

In topic The story---do I need to play Ys 1-6?
Get your legends/mythical history right
And yes, Ys is pronounced EESS even in english tongue.
Try Felghana or Ys I+II first. My advice is you play Origin after you finish playing I+II, it's better that way story wise. And this fansite is good starting point for basic Ys information.

In topic Pricing, concurrent players on release day.
Sara is XSEED sole programmer and permanent employee. She's doing all port/coding work of old Falcom game alone, and basically Napishtim engine wizards (she's the one who adding the entire exclusive feature of PSP Trails in the Sky to the PC version, plus talking chest).

In topic Pricing, concurrent players on release day.
Logically speaking, outsourcing is pricier than paying Sara's monthly salaries plus bonuses.

In topic Japanese audio
I believe voice contract license didn't include US/EU region usage is true for old Falcom game.

Bringing jap voice to the west meant they need to renegotiate and renewing the contract with the voice actor agencies. I'm sure the amount of voice actor agencies they need to renegotiate not just one or two agencies, and that's not free. It's even not guaranteed the negotiation going smoothly for all voice actor agency. The voice actor agencies may demand high additional fee that doesn't make sense or simply not willing to do it at all.

Technically XSEED can do it, but I'm not sure they have enough manpower to do that menial job, moreover it's must be done in Japan. Cost-revenue wise also not very feasible. Old game can't be sold at full price, or they can sell it at full price but in unpopular console (PS3/PSV for ColdSteel), not counting high risk to not being able to get all voice license (it's not fun if only partial is voiced in Japanese). Unless Falcom do the negotiation in the front it can't be helped.

To be fair XSEED also have good track records to release game with Japanese voice over whenever possible, but for Falcom game it's a no go (Mastif's Gurumin also same having no Jap). For Tokyo Xanadu and YS8, a couple years ago Falcom clearly stated that they want to penetrated western market, so for newer game it's likely US/EU region is included in the contract by default. We should questioning it again if somehow Cold Steel III still have no Jap voice.

In topic This before Lacrimosa of Dana?
I would say for first Ys game you should be playing Felghana and good old bump system Ys I+II Chronicles, After that you can play any Ys game with party system (seven, celceta, or dana). Don't play Origin before you play I+II. That way you can appreciate more of this series.

China is part of Asia, America obviously not, and Sony has noting to do with Steam.

Ask Joyoland to make a port and release chinese sub on your great china.
