Those are still a lot less work. The fan mods for FFVII is more work than what's been done in either of those games. There's still a lot of issues (lighting, etc) that still looks crap.
Regardless I'm sure its easier to recycle some of the stuff - make them a bit better looking than actually making new content/stuff altogether.
Anyways, I just looked - seems like FFIII for the 3DS sold more than the original - although VGChartz numbers - so ya....XD.
