Square Enix Purposely Ignores Sony Handhelds In New Survey

Square Enix has released a new questionnaire that they claim will “shape the future" of the company. In the eighth and ninth questions, Square Enix asks which of the listed platforms the user owns and plays the most, with Sony's handhelds ignored.

Square Enix's upcoming PS Vita slate includes Final Fantasy Agito+, Rise of Mana, SAGA2015 and a re-release of Star Ocean 2. Their latest release on the handheld was Deadman’s Cross on February 17th, 2015.

And the Wii U and the 3DS.

gokuking3329d ago

No, they've added those in.

yuukiliu3329d ago

Hmm, when I saw this report on a different site earlier in the morning they hadn't added those two.

IrisHeart3328d ago

Um they have that rhythm game and the Default series...

SQ : Bye VITA.

gokuking3328d ago

For a company saying "bye," they're sure releasing a lot of content ...

LemonSlice3328d ago

Yet a New SaGa game was announced exclusively for the Vita

MeteorPanda3329d ago

but why? It's a good handheld. Damn sony and not even trying to keep the vita alive..

BloodAddiction3328d ago

Vita is doing well in japan, if only they would localize most japanese games on it it might do well

urwifeminder3329d ago

Just like everyone else it seems lol.

GokuSolosAll3329d ago

There's no logical reason not to include it. It cannot hurt anything, it's just more data. Video game companies are out of touch. People think they're perfect but people run them and in case anyone doesn't know, people are not fail-proof. Often they're idiots, regardless of position (look at politics).

I truly believe that Square is run by apes.

Beetey3328d ago

It just makes no sense. Even if they completely hated the Vita (which it doesn't seem like they do), the only outcome of leaving it off the survey is that it causes the data to be less accurate.

I find his comments around how Balan turned out to be very insightful as to why the game is trash. He basically apologises for its existence

solideagle7d ago

can you please give some of us who don't know anything about this, a summary of what happened?

Chocoburger7d ago

Balan was knowingly rushed out by S-E, it had an extremely short dev cycle and was fairly low budget.
Naka was the game's director until near the end when he was fired or perhaps he quit, I forgot.

carrotcakeag7d ago

@Chocoburger Yeah they did fire and replace him which caused him to unload a bunch of rants about the company. The project only existed because of Naka in the first place, he convinced Square to give him one shot at making a platformer. They gave him an opportunity but pulled the rug out before he was done for reasons not explained.
