Fiction does this all of the time. Look at Zelda, Star Wars, or countless other works of fiction that constantly create alternate timelines or in Star Wars case, dismiss countless works as non-canon.

This is exactly what I was thinking about in regards to this new canon. We all know it's highly controversial. Heck, Square knows as well. Considering how much they twisted and turned XIII's lore, it won't surprise me if they eventually do come out and regard this as alternate universe. Nojima already considered it an 'expansion to the world,' as vague as that might be.

For example, they came out with the official timeline for the Zelda games, yeah? It starts with what I call the 'Master Canon,' that is Skyward Sword to Minish Cap to Four Swords to Ocarina of Time. However, when it gets to Ocarina of Time, that's when the timeline is split up into three different universes.

It wouldn't be entirely taboo to do something like this with such a versatile universe like Spira, right? A lot of animes like Evangelion and Clannad do this as well. You have the 'Master Canon' that is FFX and FFX-2, then after their events the timeline splits into two different universes. In one universe, Tidus and Yuna aren't entirely happy and 'accepted' upon returning to Besaid, hence the events of Price of Eternity and Will. On the other hand, he and his friends lead a much more enjoyable future which leads into a separate universe.

I know, Nojima's the Word of God and we should all treat his work like holy scriptures, but at least if I was intent on milking the universe of Spira VII Compilation-style without p*ssing off all of the fans, I would consider something like this. :P
The official 'Shinra' of the FFX boards.

I somehow can't answer? "... I'm just a kid."
