Sony should have bought Square Enix

Can you imagine, if Sony had exclusive rights to Square's franchises? There is literally no way Sony could lose a console war if all of Square Enix' games could only be played on Sony consoles / handhelds. Too late now though... Sony is out of money.

That would be about as wise a business practice as trying to increase the sales of the Vita by doubling it's price.

Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy are very popular.

Good then SE would be endanger of going out business again. People can love or hate SE, but they haven't screwed up as much as Sony has. If anything Nintendo should had bought SE. Perhaps SE could collaborate with Monolith Soft and Mistwalker.

They should have bought them and shut them down.
