Ah yes, more financial briefing news from various companies' third quarter meetings. Today's quotes? From Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider publisher Square Enix, who says that they had to operate at a loss this past quarter due to how hard it is to make money in an "increasingly difficult" console market:



"During the nine-month period ended December 31, 2012, the Company has not recovered the operating loss posted in the six-month period ended September 30, 2012, primarily due to the increasingly difficult condition of the world-wide console game market, under which the Group is struggling to achieve a fair expected return on its investment." - Square Enix statement



Well, I see many developers and publishers making quite a bit of money on this industry. I think the real problem here is that Square Enix is putting out games that are good, but not quite up the alley of most consumers in most regions right now. You've gotta read the markets, and the markets aren't asking for mediocre Final Fantasy games, Square!

Does SE know what they are putting out there? Who ever is in charge at this point is flat out trolling the fan base. No Type-0 or Bravely Default localization. Releasing count down sites for flash/tablet games while using the word Bravest to throw added insult to the fire. Releasing FFverves13 after FFXIII-2 and Lightning Returns(if ever)? NOTHING on the FFXHD announcement. KH handheld after handheld release.

If NA SE is worried about return, I highly suggest they go digital and possibly ditch english voice acting for said games they are scared about in the localization process.
