About time they did something, the company is in free-fall at the moment.

How dare Square Enix make decisions that increase their potential profit! It was perfectly fine for them to betray Nintendo and move onto Sony (another financial decision) but to betray Sony that's just going too far.

But there really needs to be some kind of shake up regarding developement, paqrticularly with their Final Fantasy franchise. I really think that franchise needs to get back to basics. Final Fantasy XIII was really aweful and they really need to stop this whole franchise within a franchise thing they tend to do Compilation of Final Fantasy VII, Ivalice Alliance, Fabula Nova Crystallis, enough, just go back to the whole stand alone thing again, it worked better.

if square enix gave fans what they've been asking for for years "ie" a real final fantasy game and not that rubbish masquerading as final fantasy they wouldn't be in this position.
