"as they should"

Meaning that it should be Warner publishing it? Or they should publish it worldwide? Or both?

Personally, apart from the PC delay perhaps, I though Eidos did a pretty good job bringing the first game to market.

koehler833049d ago

Eidos did do a good job. But Eidos isn't Eidos anymore, are they? Square Enix doesn't deserve a piece of this pie.

kevco333049d ago

True, I get your point, but it's still a lot of the same staff working at Eidos as there used to be. Just becuase the bosses have changed doesn't mean the publishing teams can't still do a good job.

As long as they deliver a solid sequel the stellar Arkham Asylum, I don't care who publishes it. Just make it sweet!

NecrumSlavery3048d ago

Square is big on publishing now. They are trying to make up cash for their losses in sales for the last 2 years. All that will be rectafied through FF13.

Still Eidos did a great job, I hope WB gives Rocksteady a lot of leeway, because those guys really know how to run with the batman ball.

SpoonyRedMage3048d ago

Necrum, unlikely that FFXIII will be the game to alleviate SE's financial issues, Dragon Quest IX will be undoubtedly their most profitable game(likely ever).

SE will still be getting a cut of the profits from AA 2 anyway as they have a 25% stake in Rocksteady and might still have a deal with Warner Bros.

WB can manage it, well I don't care, just give me the Game and I'll be fine

Noctis Aftermath3048d ago

SE lost money on the last few 360 games because of some exclusive bullsh1t, now they know they can't just ditch sony to try and make a profit.

darthv723048d ago

I still have yet to finish the first. Can't wait for the second.

Hate to ask (ashamed actually) do you defeat Bane? I am stuck getting my butt handed to me by this guy every time.
