Pity hardened - former - fans of your company telling you to move on was sign that you move on. Or at least do things differently than you were doing them.

Yep, he was just out of touch with reality.

"My psychic told me we should move to tokyo!"

and yet they will still release yet another spin off of FFXIII.......

Hear the news? FF XIII-6 is in development.

Supposedly they are also remaking XIII, XIII-2 and XIII-3 for the PS4.

XIII-4 & XIII-5 are being made at the same time as XIII-6 but will be for the PS1 because a psychic named baba told them it was a good idea.

FF VII, VIII & IX are also being remade finally. They will be using the paradigm system and lightning will be a hidden character in the game, Towns are also being removed and you will now recieve all quests from a parrot in an icecream truck.

I know you all think i'm full of shit now but just wait, only 6 months til all of them release.

My comment from almost 3 years ago on N4G.

If you had listened then to that 1 little sentence, you would have saved SquareEnix 137 million dollars. You had been given the controls to a Da Vinci machine & you managed to make crap with it ?? :/

You know, he just seemed to make the wrong decision every single time. It baffles me that he's just now stepping down, how did they make money?

His unwillingness to invest in console development cost that company a lot of potential cash. Then they buy Edios and expect new IPs and nearly dead franchises to just emerge into sales juggernauts. His direction of this company was not only baffling, but often seemed arrogant and moronic. No offence to the man himself, but good riddance. Hopefully his replacement will have a better vision.

Yeah, he clearly had no idea what he was doing. He's been running the company into the ground. I don't understand how he lasted this long.

But a new generation is starting, so it's a great for them to start fresh with new ideas and stronger leadership.
