A lot of people who aren't really busy with video games will think it's just some stupid spin-off.
Final Fantasy XIII-3 at least makes it sound like a mainline FF game.

I don't predict success for this game.

They're already stealing stuff from Versus, so they might as well.

It's not going to sell well anyway.

If they named it Final Fantasy XIII-3 some ignorant people might see it on the shelves and think, 'Hey, a Final Fantasy game'.
Now they'll just think it's some spin-off that's not worth it.

SE figures only the diehards would be interested in this rush job.

Naming it XIII-3 would cost it sales because of the stigma attached to XIII.

Why would you insult me like that? I'm no diehard for FF, and I'm still buying the game.

I'd say the opposite, XIII-3 suggests you need to play 2 games before it, whereas Lightning Returns doesn't sound as though you need to have played XIII and XIII-2.
