* CrackIsCheaper: ''The Misadventures of Tron Bonne''. Good luck finding the original for under a hundred dollars. For a while, it seemed unlikely to get a digital rerelease, as the rights for a song supposedly expired. Now it's available on PlayStation Network in North America for $6.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Hold onto these games if you own a copy; as TechnologyMarchesOn they have become very rare and are unlikely to ever be re-released. See ScrewedByTheLawyers for an explanation.
** Surprisingly, though, ''The Misadventures of Tron Bonne'' managed to get out of this. The first game finally got its release in September 2015, but no word on the second.
*** Finally averted for the entire series as Legends 2 finally saw a PSN release in April 2016.

** The Old City power plant in ''1'' holds absolutely nothing of value, save for some very subtle foreshadowing that the Bonnes are building a robot nearby (a worker at the plant says they're having a mysterious power drain from the city). Rumors abounds about some secret in the power plant when there's apparently no point to it. The Old City itself isn't much better, as aside from the Bonnes and Bruno, nothing of importance happens here, either, making it a whole sector of the city with apparently nothing in it. Hmm...
** Gylde's base in ''2'' has the description of the main gate say "you'll need something stronger than the Buster to break this gate down." It's a hint that you have to take the side door into the base, but as most players will probably notice that and do so in the first place, they probably missed the gate description and are going to wonder how they can destroy the gate to re-enter the destroyed base.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Capcom is well-aware that fans are calling for these games to be released for digital download, and they'd like to do it; the problem is the legal hoops they'd need to jump through. Capcom outsourced the English voice acting for the two games to another company that has since gone under, so they have no idea who owns the rights to the voice acting or if the contracts signed back then would allow them to reuse the voice clips for a re-release anyway. Thus if they wanted to re-release them they'd need to either do full remakes, or hire new voice actors and record the dialogue all over. While the latter is feasible, Sony does not allow developers to change the source code for releases of games on the Playstation Network, so Capcom would need to release the games through another means, which comes with its own obvious share of problems because then they'd need to find a way to make Nintendo or Microsoft consoles emulate original Playstation games.
** Finally averted for the main series, as [[http://www.capcom-unity.com/gregaman/blog/2015/09/22/mega-man-legends-coming-to-north-american-playstation-store the first Legends is coming to PSN]].

First, Capcom outsourced the English voice acting for the two games to another company that has since gone under, so they have no idea who owns supposedly lost the rights to the voice acting or if over the contracts signed back then would allow them to reuse years, and second, the voice clips for original ''Legends'' has vending machines that depict a re-release anyway. Thus if they wanted real-life beverage in Japan that Capcom had to re-release them they'd need pay licensing rights to either do full remakes, or hire new voice actors and record the dialogue all over.

Come 2015 they finally got the first Legends game out, with speculation going that the price ($9.99) is coming a bit higher than other classic games because they decided to PSN]].just bite the bullet and pay for the beverage IP again, and the higher price is to pay the fee.

** ''[[VideoGame/MegaManLegends The Misadventures of Tron Bonne]]'', a rare PS1 game that [[CrackIsCheaper very often fetched for hundreds]], was finally re-released on the PSN, allowing you to enjoy the title for a far cheaper price... unless you lived in Europe. Similarly, no European release date of the long awaited PSN version of ''Mega Man Legends'' has been announced so far. Fortunately, you can somewhat get around this by making a US PSN account, which allows you to buy off of the US PSN store.
