RPG Site: About how large now is the team working on FF14 and how has it - if at all - affected Square Enix development internally? Actually, I’m really interested in the way the team works so perhaps if you could describe a bit about day to day workings and various staff roles? Going back to the idea of 2.0 having an ‘epic Final Fantasy-style’ story, I’m really interested in who will be handling the scenario and dialogue writing—things like that.

Yoshida: Currently, the in-house team consists of almost 300 members. We also have outsourced a fair amount of work to third-party companies, so all-in-all, the team is fairly large.

Some of the core members include:

Naoki Yoshida – producer/director – (Dragon Quest series)
Yoshihisa Hashimoto – technical director – (CTO, Luminous engine)
Hiroshi Takai – assistant director – (Last Remnant, FFV, Romancing Saga series)
Akihiko Matsui – battle director – (Final Fantasy Series, FFXI)
Hiroshi Minagawa – UI director – (FFXII, Tactics Ogre)
Takeo Suzuki – art director – (FFXII)
Akihiko Yoshida – lead artist (FFXII, Tactics Ogre)
Yaeko Sato (FINAL FANTASY XI, FINAL FANTASY XII) will continue her role as lead writer.

And many, many more Square Enix veterans

That's one massive team (mainly FFXII & Last Remnant/SaGa team members). FFXIV I am guessing is taking up the vast majority of Square Japan's resources right about now. And since they're devoting so much to FFXIV, don't expect much else out of them for a couple of years.

True, that's everywhere. At our place there have been people who got promoted to some boss position after three months just because they got along well with other bosses in the team. Bringing cookies every day or asking if they want some coffee etc. Actually, the best, veteran people weren't given any chances because they needed us to do the real work so the business could continue. Being mediocre and friends with the higher ups helped instead.

Its not who you are, its who you know. Unless you have that super star raw gritty talent, that just naturally shines and everyone can see and love, then its all about you. But if you dont have that (which most dont), you better start making connections and kissing ass.

Square Enix Posts Quarterly Loss

Console game sales were weak in first quarter.

For once both the "You don't say" meme and actual speech from Vampire's Kiss both apply (You know the whole "I couldn't think of a worse job if I wanted to" deal)

Calling it now: Versus XIII will be moved to next gen consoles. FFXIII & XIV are all Square Japan are developing FF wise this gen for PS3/360 (and in XIV's case, PC).

I'm still hoping for something at TGS but you may be right if nothing is shown

I'm one of the few who really enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII, though admit it lacked in many areas from a gameplay standpoint. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it and am interested in what more they have in store for us. Can't really see much more happening though after XIII-2 and would much prefer Versus XIII.

Great music, battle system, art direction and overall visuals. At the time that alone was enough to impress and as an art major, it still has it's ways of smoothing over the overall package. It's not some historic title to me, but I accept it for what it was.
