Square Enix Not Ready For Nintendo’s VC

April 25, 2007

And why should they be? People are still willing to purchase old Final Fantasy games for $30 on the GBA, and Square Enix is hoping they’ll pay $40 on the PSP. According to [url=http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3158958]a report by 1UP[/url], Square Enix’s executive producer Shinji Hashimoto had this to say:

“We feel that the Japanese game market still requires [physical] media. Also, FF and Dragon Quest are played by a wide range of users, from children to adults, so there are limitations when you consider the problems that we would have with billing systems.”
