I'm a little curious about something. How exactly do 3DS and Vita game sales factor into that chart? I suppose I've heard people refer to the Vita as HD, but not so with the 3DS. It's not as though they have nothing to show for it -- Dragon Quest VII released earlier this year and has sold over a million copies.

They lump it in with the HD games segment



There is 1 3DS title and 1 Vita title

Let´s make it short; Square Enix will produce games only for smartphones, tablets and PCs.

It seems that they´re giving up console gaming once and for all.

it´s only their own fault. They should´ve being cautious when jumping on the AAA tiles bandwagon. We all know the industry can´t sustain this paradigm. After the losses with Hitman, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and the decaying Final Fantasy series, they should now that.

Ah, thanks. That was a little misleading of them.

Also, I think this is the first time we've seen a release date for DQ Monsters 2? Feb 6.

Nothing surprises me with Square Enix anymore.

Still, apparently FF XIV's success boosted their forecast from loss to profit, so I can kind of see where they're coming from.
