    B-but Salarta cancelled his FFXV pre-order. Surely, his impotent gesture that absolutely no one gives two shits about should have brought Squeenix to their knees!

    So a no profit forecast, followed by a profit? Strange.

    @salarta Unless I’m tripping balls, I believe it was no profit growth? I don’t know. These financial statements intentionally tough to decipher.

    @dtyk I’d normally say that makes sense, but I thought they had a profit loss last year? Then again, I don’t memorize every financial statement companies put out because that’s not my job, so I could have that wrong.
