Square Enix Purposely Ignores Sony Handhelds In New Survey
Square Enix has released a new questionnaire that they claim will “shape the future” of the company. In it you’ll find the company quizzing the applicant on their media consumption habits. In the eighth and ninth questions, Square Enix asks which of the listed platforms the user owns and plays the most. Initially the multiple choices included every recent (in the last 10 years) commercial platform – barring PSP, 3DS, PS Vita and Wii U. With the Nintendo snub raising eyebrows, the company updated the survey earlier today to include Nintendo’s current gen platforms. However, the PlayStation handhelds were once again neglected.
The omission of the Sony portables is a weird one. The survey later acknowledges PSP titles Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Dissidia: Final Fantasy as well as the PS Vita version of Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster.
The lack of Sony handhelds becomes even more confusing when you look at the company’s upcoming slate: outside of more Dragon Quest X expansions, Square Enix has nothing officially announced for Wii U. Meanwhile, the company’s upcoming PS Vita slate includes Final Fantasy Agito+, Rise of Mana, SAGA2015 and a re-release of Star Ocean 2. Square Enix’s latest PS Vita release was Deadman’s Cross on February 17th, 2015.
