JI writes: "The abomination that was Square Enix's shooter MindJack met very unfavorable reviews earlier this year while the reviews were mixed on shooter series Kane & Lynch for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 throughout its short history. The recent and ongoing disasters in Japan are effecting companies like Square Enix to a severe degree. And the budgets of leading class modern video game entertainment projects are not cheap.
Square Enix has recently announced that there will be "cancellations" in their scheduled release lineup due to financial trouble they partly attribute to the Japan disasters which are costing ongoing emergency and damage repair capital for many companies right now. How many of the heavily ancitipated titles, that S.E. has gamers on a string for, will suffer? Square Enix Should Have Made Deus Ex, Hitman, and FFVII Remake Sooner to position themselves for the long-term before taking risks on New IPs and sequels to unproven franchises."
