I'm Just Gonna Ask: Why Was Square Enix At The Meeting?

Does anyone have any idea why Square Enix even bothered to show up at the PlayStation Meeting? Why did they show off an 8-month-old tech demo? (PS4, Square Enix)

just to prove that they can run that demo on the ps4 with no problems, which is kinda dumb imo.

EDIT: Square Enix has stated in the past that they want consoles to be more powerful or more ram if my memory serves me right. Sorta implying that luminous can only run in a better equipped console. Square soft used to bring many wonders with their games with graphics that seem to beyond the capabilities of what a console can handle, so hearing them say they want to design games on a powerful console tells me they are no longer the magicians they used to be. *I look at the picture of the magician.....sigh......

@Abash

and that too, which is pretty much a given. How much you want to bet they will do the same with Microsoft just to excite xbox users in the West?

It has more to do with them backing the PS4, it's to get the Japanese gamers as well as Final Fantasy fans excited for the system
I think mostly just sony showing that they have support from devs. But SE was the lamest part of the whole thing.

I hope for more jprgs in the west.

yes, one can only hope, but that hope was shattered when Sony brought in Activision to present. I remember when Activision used to support Japanese games in some respect. *Looks at Tenchu and Bloody Roar series. Man, Activision used to be a great publisher before they went COD full time.

for some strange reason I have a vibe that square enix and ms will pull something like ff13 verus at the ms event , ms is sneaky that way , and show cod4 on its next gen.

I just wonder if Square is noting this reaction.

Square Enix was there to announce they will have an announcement at E3.

Does Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII have a release date yet? Not saying it will that, but I wouldn't put it past them. Hopefully it's Versus 13.

I think they were at the meeting to embarrass sony and them selves, I bet if sony knew what they were going to show on stage they would have pack them up and tell them to go back to japan lol. I laugh so hard when at what they did, give respect to capcom they showed something relevant.

Even EPIC change up there unreal 4 demo for the PS4 but square???

The Square Enix presentation wasn't as lame as the Blizzard one.

Their trying to stay relevant in an industry which has far surpassed their creative capacity.

Every other dev showed at least a real time demo of their games, some which have only been in development for less than a year.

how is it that Square can't even finish a game like Vs 13 which was announced 5 years ago?

They are INCOMPETENT in every letter of the word and they know gamers are starting to see that, hence why they kept saying "please" wait for this blah blah blah. JUST SHUT IT!!!

Do us all a favor, shut down your greedy company and sell the FF ip. I'm sure many devs out there could develop a better FF game in less the amount of time.
