Idiots make up rumours about other idiots selling millions in stock that they never had to begin with?

That's just the state of the industry these days.

Well I hope that says something to them. Money is the only thing a game studio cares about in the end and SE just lost some because they could have done better. Maybe they will make it better now?

Is that why you named yourself an outdated system of damage calculation? because the companies just care about the money in the end?

To Hit Armour Class 0 FTW!!!!

Although, admittedly, it was pretty confusing getting started...

Sold his stock option out of anger, or realized that Square Enix is flailing and has been releasing sub par games that relied largely on the name "Final Fantasy" to sell the last 3 or 4 titles?

There is a small difference between stock options and actual stocks.
The options are just options where as stock certificates actually imply partial ownership of a company.
But for $26 million dollars the man could finance the production of just about any video game he wanted, or just buy a lifetime subscription to WoW.
But the man would do well to invest a portion of that into konami via the TSE before the holiday rush.
Castlevania is going to be bigger there than it was here.

Though I believe that Koei Tecmo is going to be pretty big on the scene in the next two years.

Regardless of any of that, Square Enix needs to die in its current incarnation. (The company, not the people). Their values in game development and story telling are... not as good as they [Square Enix] think it is. It just astounds me that they can employ some of the best story tellers and artists of our generation and be so completely off the mark when it comes to good design choices.

So, is this true? do we have some actual information instead of hearsay? cause i'd really like to see the source on someone just dumping that many stocks at being pissed off. And more of source than "well this guy said this to that guy in the linkshell".

It's very much true. The source links are all up there in the comments above this one.

It's going to happen, too. The writing (and the money) is on the wall.

The sad thing is we will all be back when Square-Enix cashes in that FFVII check

Have you seen what they've been doing to VII recently?

In the remake, you'll probably only have four party members: Cloud, Vincent, Tifa, and Aeris. The rest will be relegated to walk on roles in cutscenes, except Red XIII, who will get a mention maybe a quarter of the way in and than promptly never be spoken of again. Cloud will moan about his feelings the entire game and a bunch of leather clad she-men will literally cry about their disembodied mommy.

Yeah, even if it did happen, fans would probably hate it anyway.

And when Square Enix completely screws up the remake they will be gone again.
