    Square Enix?

    Hopefully this doesn't get me banned(if there is such a thing in the forums) but why did Square Enix aqquire Eidos? I know its old news but i never really found the answer on the web. Just say not answerable if its a secret business thing :/

    You won't get banned for asking a question like that, nor is it a secret business thing, pure and simple Eidos was losing money square Enix had alot so they bought the company i could explain it more but I'm on my iPhone ATM so I can't

    I hope I dont get banned for this but...


    I thing square enix got pretty bad campared to when it still was squaresoft.

    The games squaresoft published were much superior than to squareenix

    and they abandoned so many loved series, and projects that were in progress, and now will be forgotten forever...

    Capitalism.

    This is what happens, corporate companies get big then try to get even bigger. The most effective and quickest way of getting bigger when you have got a wealth of money at your disposal is to buy (or own majority of the shares) of dying/smaller companies which in turn you get all of their resources, intellectual property rights and their debts
    Yes siree, the excitement never ends.

    The thing about Canadians is, they are very friendly people. But give them a hockey stick and they'll kill you.

    Squeenix's too busy fixing that FFXIV mess to have time to lurk on Eidos boards.

    Normally, I would delete a post like yours as it doesn't really say anything, does it? But I've merged into existing discussion thread instead.

    Isn't finding threads that say something new on a games forum with no new game yet a bit of a challenge?
