Square Enix has money, wants to go shopping

Not content to stand idly by during the Great Western Merger-fest, with such notable names as EA-who-bought-Bioware-Pandemic and Vivendi Activision Blizzard (just rolls off the tongue don’t it?), Square Enix has announced that is has what equates to around $9.20 billion (with a b) to spend on either allying itself with other companies or outright purchasing stakes in them.  The purported reasoning behind this is diversifying their content.  From the mouth of Yoichi Wada himself, “… we need to go beyond traditional Square Enix.”
