East and West can succeed at globalization with collaboration, says Wada

"Square Enix president Yoichi Wada feels that neither Japanese nor Western publishers have “succeeded at globalization”, due to parent companies having to much control over development studios.

Speaking with VentureBeat, Wada said that globalization can only be obtained by becoming “network-centric” and promoting collaboration between a firm’s worldwide studios."

The story is too old to be commented.

"Square Enix president Yoichi Wada feels that..."

I stopped there. I don't care about Wada's opinion in the least.

Wada should globalize his own ass with some HIV.

You know what? We are a fantastic world with different cultures and tastes. No one game is going to appeal to absolutely everyone, but the more people like Wada seek to make that game the more they will need to cater to the lowest common denominator. If everyone just sticks to what they are good at...Squenix, then those who love western games can get their hands on western games and you don't have to suffocate those who actually enjoy what Japan has to offer. We've puchased your games because they're NOT western and I am becomming increasingly frusterated by attempts to become so.
