Considering Soul Hackers was originally a Sega Saturn game, I think that scenario plays itself out.
(yeah, sadly Saturn was no where near as big here as it was in Japan, and I place part of the blame on the fact lots of really good games, like this one, never got localized at the time) I know a PS1 port did come out in Japan in 1999, but in that case the battle would have been with FFVIII and by that point FF had solidified it's popularity with Western audiences.
But getting more on topic, great to see Atlus confirming this for NA release next year. I need some more RPG goodness on my 3DS.
