      They're not entirely wrong. Remember the E3/Summer fest where they're shilling GoTG? Square's showcase was lambasted because they didn't show their japanese ips. People were going on about "GoTG isn't what we wanted from SE"!" And "Where's NeoTWEWY". People are so attached to the image of Square being a japanese company, so they should be making japanese like game.

      In what way?

    It sounds more like japanese wanted to get rid of the feminism sect. Besides TR and Hitman I don't see the other ips selling that much.
    If I remember correctly square enix got a censor department which was probably the western side idea. Nips work a lot so they dont want to work a lot AND deal with ugly people dictating how ugly things must be, if you are a slave be a slave for beauty not uglyness

          Japan literally puts gay and crossdressing people in everything they make. Drag queens are regularly seen on national TV.

          The Japanese court literally just ruled a month ago that Japan's ban on gay marriage was constitutional and told the gays that were suing the state over it to go fuck themselves.

          The thing about Japan though is that they don't care what people do in private which is why they're all into crazy deviant shit, but they still want you to maintain a "normal" public persona and that's something that is being slowly eroded for a long time.

    now any other day of the week you'd be like "oh they decided to put all their money into rocket league", but nope, square-enix just didn't like that it wasn't doing as well as they hoped even though the devs were INCREASING development pace while still making rocket league.

    Square Enix are selling at a fire sale price because it's part of the back room deal they've made with Sony to be bought out. Sony however doesn't want those excess studios, it has no interest in them at all. Why? Ask Sony, but they just want Final Fantasy under their brand and they want it bad.

    Personally I think it's part reason Microsoft bought Activision/ Blizzard and will have access to WoW, the mmo and Sony want their own MMO which FF14 will give them.
    Just speculation on my part and of course it's only part reason for the buyout.
    It's also consolidation for Sony to prevent Square E from being a competitor if Microsoft makes a move.

        This is exactly what Sony is continuing to do, yet they question why they are losing the interest of millions of "players/ gamers".

              What is short term about making sure you have money to create more products? Xbox is proof a console can live without exclusivity. People buy consoles for the convenience. No parent think about PC when buying a game machine for their children. A console is easier to control. Sony is just moving forward instead of severing their finances because of outdated ideas.

          It's nothing to do with anything this retard is saying.
          Square Enix are selling at a fire sale price because it's part of the back room deal they've made with Sony to be bought out. Sony however doesn't want those excess studios, it has no interest in them at all. Why? Ask Sony, but they just want Final Fantasy under their brand and they want it bad.

          Personally I think it's part reason Microsoft bought Activision/ Blizzard and will have access to WoW, the mmo and Sony want their own MMO which FF14 will give them.
          Just speculation on my part and of course it's only part reason for the buyout.
          It's also consolidation for Sony to prevent Square E from being a competitor if Microsoft makes a move.

          Very bold of you to assume that modern Sony would be more interested in Square Enix's Japanese properties versus their western ones that they've already sold off.

          Why can't you people just see reality and accept that Playstation has an extremely low opinion of Japanese games and Japanese dev houses?
          And instead they spent the vast majority of their investment budget on several western dev houses and then proceeded to fund the development of a whole dozen different GAAS projects.

          They're not buying Capcom.
          They're not buying Konami.
          They're not buying Atlus nor SEGA as a whole.
          They're not buying FromSoft.
          They're not buying Square Enix.
          Why would you ever bet on modern Sony buying Japanese videogame companies?

      You are a fucking idiot and parrioting what other people are saying. Square is a whore who does exlcuvies deal with Sony, Nintendo and Epic, the only reason is because their asking price is so cheap.

      >Sony wants FF that bad.
      Why? when FF7R sold 5 million on PS4 and Ghost of Tsushima, an average new IP checkbox open world game sold close to 10 million? The FF brand isn't as big as it once was, spending billions on Square is a waste of money, and their press confirms Eidos was bleeding them on the daily, that is why they sold them on the cheap, they couldn't wait for months or even years to get rid of them.

    This actually makes sense to me although I don't know if it applies to square in this case. One company I do wonder about is Microsoft with all those acquisitions. They can only have so many people working on these games anyways. What will they put a ton of budget on? What will they put lesser budget to? What IP will they completely ignore? Also you can only have so many releases in a year. In Microsoft's case they got so many IP's now that are even of the same genre. Such as a ton of FPS games.

    You guys might not have seen it this way but its the truth. I think if a gaming company is too big some of its games will possibly cannibalize sales for others. Sometimes a company can also be on the shit list for people so if they ruin their favorite game they might just disregard the rest. I know for a fact with EA I was always hesitant to support any of their games because of how shit they are as a company. EA is another that has way too many IP's that it doesn't even know what to do with all of them. I think that is why so many lay dormant. They have many IP's that are similar genre to other more successful ones they already have.

    For my last example I'm going to go with Aliens Colonial Marines. A lot of shady shenanigans with that game because Gearbox wanted to prop up their own IP's at the expense of the game. So the game ended up being a trash game because Gearbox didn't want its development to take all the time and effort away from their own IP's.

            There is a reason why Activision made 90% of their studios only work on COD
            The average suit only wants more and more money

            Maybe until phil spencer is there this wont happen, but just wait when a Jim Ryan- type enters the management of xbox, he will have 1/3 of the industry to play with

      2 of 3 games were completely destroyed by management decisions

    That's not what canibalize sales means.
    It means they were afraid sales from those brands would stop sales from japanese brands from materializing.
    Whether that fear is true or not, I don't know.

    Square Enix has great artists but refuses to make heavy fanservice games on mobile. Their anti fanservice and censor stance will fuck them. While others are making mad money on fanservice.

        Genshin and the new ZZZ developers aremarketing themselves are otaku game makers. Granbule fantasy made a lot of money on fanservice. SE had many gachas but not much fanservice and that's why they never succeed. Otaku whales go after things they like hard. SE already made final fantasy 7 first soldier mobile and didn't succeed. A heavy ecchi game with final fantasy, chrono and dragon quest characters would sell like mad.

          It doesnt even need to be ecchi

            Instead of selling shitty weapons, the monetization will be changing outfits that come with a new weapon
            This will sell so much

      Compared to spreadsheet simulators with last century presentation and combat for nostalgia gays and bland open world kusoge on picrelated I'd rather take 3PS. You're braindead if you think that the Western studios weren't the most functional part of Square Enix.

      >implying dirty jap AAA is any better
      Every game from any AAA company around the planet is made by an office of 100 people fresh out of college making something incoherently with no passion amongst people they hate...locked in an office cubicle.

      It doesn't help that these companies are outsourcing asset creation and programming to soulless bugmen chinks and poojeets.

      There is no passion in these projects because each person on the team gets a job to create a few assets, program one scripted thing or make a cutscene.

      This isn't a team working together to make a product you care about and enjoy, it's a bunch of retarded millennials and zoomers churning out corporate garbage and propaganda that they're told to make so they can drain your wallet with mtx and battlepasses.
