Squaresoft made that FF movie and it bankrupt them. Sony helped bail them out. They had a nice share of Squaresoft until the merger with Enix.

SE wants to get bigger. The sad thing about bigger is your products might suffer. In SE's case they're cranking out titles for every platform and spreading their resources.

IMO. Quality suffers, customers lose confidence and sales start to fall. Cycle repeats until everything is restructured or the busyness fails..

Ooo I forgot totally about that game but yeh, that was awesome.

Hopefully a Legacy of Kain game will be coming too(doesn't have to be about Kain and Raziel but it'd be better).
