If Square keeps up the premium pricing for their classic games, they're going to earn a lot of ire.
It should be noted that FF3 for Android/iOS is not exactly the same game and can't even really be considered a port. Aside from the updated 3d graphics, the story has also been heavily modified from the original. (while it's mostly small details rather than major events, but still, those small details add up).
