I think totally the opposite. But well, one can guess.

Then why not release it on PS4 if it's only about sales revenue?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Because PS4 is Sony's platform and PC ain't.



Sure, unless they can squeeze some money or some kind of deal out of Sony there's no reason to ditch Xbox. The sales they did get no doubt covered the costs of porting.

So it's about supporting the platform after all.

Was probably still worth it. From everything we've seen/heard so far it seems like porting between PS4/Xbox One is pretty cheap and easy so it wouldn't have needed many sales to make it worthwhile.

It's both. It's good to support the platform with games, but it's nice if u make money with these games. Xbox exclusives hardly are any kind of blockbusters so PC version is wise. 



If the port makes a profit, yes.
If it doesn't, no.

It's pretty simple.



No its sellong ok on xbox.



A port is very easy and inexpensive because the hardware architecture of both systems (AMD64) is nearly identical.

FFXV is worth for XB1 because it is huge, but the more niche/ lower selling JRPGs are not.

Type 0 HD, KH, and others were probably not worth the port.

Kingdom Hearts is a big game, the first 2 main games sold 10.7 millions(Vgchartz numbers) combined.
