Dang, that's a lot of money. Hopefully, the two win this case.

There is no reason why this two guys shouldn't be given what they owe. It would have been cheaper for Activision to have just paid them and moved on. No telling what the legal fees to get to this point have been.

then I would reprimand Activision and order them to pay legal fees for illegally withholding terminated employees pay and severance, as that's illegal.

Case closed....

They made Devilsion so much cash!! They deserve to be compensated!

In a perfect world. The creators win the case. Get what there owed plus the rights to the franchise back. Blizzard breaks off from activision. COD now goes into full blown overhaul mode and returns to FPS glory. The yearly installs come to a complete and utter halt.

I know it wont happen but a bro can dream.

They don't deserve any of that money. Give it to charities in need.

xtremexx1915d ago

why dont you belive they deservce the money? yea charities deserve money aswell but why do you believe they dont?

Kurylo3d1915d ago

When he says charities.. he means he deserves the money or at least to be recognized as a "good" person. lol.

Why? Because this is America and it's now a sin to be rich. If you are rich you must have deprived some lazy unmotivated person who didn't get your fair share. You do not own anything because that money is meant for other people who sit around and refuse to work hard or else they didn't hit the genetic lottery.

Contrary to the beliefs of Andrew Ryan, people in Washington tell us these other people are entitled to the sweat of your brow.

So i guess you are one of those guys that believes game devs are overpaid primadonnas going back home at 2pm and sipping margaritas the rest of the day ?

Famous or not , talented or not , you wont find many devs that arent sleep deprived and without an actual life for most of the duration of a game's dev cycle .

And it get even worse , around launch and gold release crunch , they manage to have even less time left , when they already had none .

They deserves every penny .

if this thing goes to jury they will get a lot more, I think activision is at fault and the way they treated bungie when they haven't even made a billion dollar franchise for them yet

COD became big after MW1 so these guys in my opinion get a lot of credit, because activision wanted to stay in ww2 setting longer

Les-Grossman1915d ago

Bungie should be worried if their new IP takes off. Especially if Activision wins this. They will just do the same to Bungie. Activision needs to lose this case & Modern Warfare
