    Nah, not really.

    Sony have decided to get a decent return on non-voting shares from Square-Enix while the latter has it going relatively good for them (and indeed, better than where I predicted them to be a year or so ago). Perhaps very much influenced by the current situation Sony is in, they decided they'd get more out of selling the stock than the very intangible benefits they were previously receiving.

    Of course, one does wonder why they don't do it when FFXV arrives, but no one wants to wait another millennium for that.
