      1. Har du ikke annet å gjøre enn å snakke dritt til andre på internett? Hvor gammel er du? 10 år?

  1. PC IS STILL MASTER RACE YOU FUCKING FAGS GO FUCK YOUR CONSOLES IN THE HD PORT LIL KIDS GROW UP AND SEE THE REAL DEAL….PC GAMING^!!!!!!!!
    CANCER TO ALL CONSOLE KIDS.

    1. And this is why I don’t play games on a PC. It turns you into a angry virgin on the internet.

  2. All else aside I’m just not a big fan of mobile gaming.
    Especially on a touchscreen only phone. -_-

  3. I have no inherent issue with mobile games. My main issue is when companies literally overlook handhelds and consoles so as to make a simple IOS port.
    I haven’t much knowledge on programming, but why not release this on the VITA/3DS.

    1. Simple they are lazy and don’t have vision. I would buy any of their ps1 and ps2 remakes on handhelds in a heart beat but they are realy stupid.

      1. Tell your you pirate all games fucking Kid get a JOB AND BUY THE GAMES. Console KIDS ARE THE CANCER OF GAMING.FACT YOU CANT DENY THAT YOU FUCKING NINTENDOSLUT!

    2. Because aside from DQ8 they’re all already on the 3DS in Japan, even 9’s available and still DS exclusive. I doubt that 8 will get a port itself to 3DS though, but might if there was demand.

      In reference to the main article though what I really want to know is how this suggests anything about exclusivity in the future? All it suggests without trying to make up reasons is that SE thinks mobile platforms are popular enough to port their popular games to. Something we’ve all known for ages now. I’m also curious as to how this is even Nintendo related news.

  4. I think this is why Nintendo did not bough atlus. They are waiting to buy square enix instead at a fire sale.

  5. I can see where Square is going at, at a business/marketing standpoint. As much as it kinda pains me to say this (I’m a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to gaming), Mobile Platforms (iOS, Android, Windows) are pretty much all the rage these days, considering the many uses the devices that run these platforms have. If Square’s going to continue to stay in the mobile market, they might want to think a little more on how they price their games. I have Final Fantasy 1-5 and Dimensions on iOS and they were pretty pricey when I got them.
    FFI&FFII: $9 each
    FFIII,FFIV,&FFV: $16 each
    FF Dimensions: $20
    Since most mobile games are free, or at most $2, Square should think to lessen how much they want to get for each download. Otherwise, this will not be a viable option for their money and for PR.

    1. I agree 100% with you. I’m not so pissed about their games goin to ios. My grudge with them is ignoring where his main customers are and that’s console and handhelds.

      1. NtAgreed. Ever since Mobile Platforms have entered the scene, they have lowered the popularity of Handheld Platforms (3DS, PSP, & PSVita) by so much. I’m not to concerned about Home Platforms, considering they are still popular. Square has to realise that there are more options to utilize. Sure, Mobile Gaming is pretty popular today (don’t try to deny it, it’s beyond true), but, the way Square is appoaching the market is pretty much haphazardous. They need to plan a little more carefully if they want to stay. But, they should continue to make games for handheld platforms if things don’t go so well in the mobile market, since the handheld platforms still have a large userbase.

  6. Yes great Square Enix! You just needed to go and rape DQ 1-8 by bringing them to shitty ios and android mobiles. I dont know what psycholigic reason for this is except the greed and not valuing their properties enough. Square Enix you are the whore of the gaming industry ready to bring your goods to filth only to earn some easy money, soon your own goods will be tarnished with all that filth.

  7. I don’t even want to call them Square enix, Square soft was such a good company and all their work was amazing until Enix came. The only thing that came out of Enix that was any good was KH, but even that’s getting stupid. FF started getting shitty once the good Devs of Square left. It’s a shell of it’s former self. I used to love them.
    And here ‘Square’ Enix goes shitting on some great games by putting them on smartphones where they could easily pirated and abused.
