Imagine if Lightning got a hold of one of the codecs to speak to Snake while he was on a mission? The intense poetic blah blah blahing would make him go nuts go out of cover run down a narrow long hallway and give himself up to the enemy --- (\__/) (='.'=)
Square just shot themselves in the foot. I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an a******. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.
What this means is the Japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase XIII-3, nor will they purchase any of Square's games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Square has alienated an entire market with this move.
Square, publicly apologize and cancel XIII-3 or you can kiss your business goodbye. --- http://tinyurl.com/6ak2wg8 ^Almost all non-translated FF Ultimania interviews ever. Tons of exclusive info. Please help translate them.
