Then they will have to bet all their marbles on Final Fantasy Versus XIII. They have not churned out one good HD console game this gen. If Final Fantasy XIII-2 bombs in the west too than their last opportunity to strike gold this gen will be Versus XIII. They will have to throw all their marketing money into Versus XIII... at least I hope so. At least as much as XIII-2 is being marketed.

Agreed. If it bombs, they will take all their development staff and work on versus XIII. Then they will all work hard in using that photorealistic engine they developed and use it for Final Fantasy XV for next-gen consoles.

If XIII fails, then they would have to relied on Versus.

I hope they don't cancel Versus if XIII-2 fails. Wada is crazy and probably jealous enough to do that. He wouldn't want to admit he was wrong and Nomura was right. He might just have to hand the company over to him and step down. Toriyama is a big thorn in the company's side too.

If retardation couple be explained in a paragraph it would be the nonsense you just spewed

I'm not sure Nomura (or anyone) would like to become Square's CEO right now : mo' money but way mo' problems

How is it nonsense?

Do you know anything about Versus XIII or why it even exists or was named that?

Nomura didn't agree with the direction FFXIII was going. There is a rift between him and Wada, dumbass.

FFXIII-2 failing would just further prove that he was right and Wada might not be able to deal with that. He'd be the type to try and save face, which would be ordering something drastic.

Think before you respond to me, asshole.

They will hopefully learn that they are an iggnorant bunch and will get the wake up call they truley deserve.

Listen to your fanbase Square for once instead of thinking you guys can fix can't, you've prooved that a number of countless times
