So, Kotick, still gonna drop PS3 support :P

The Wii continues to sell relatively well each week but publishers haven't found success with software on the console. It's seems if it isn't publish by Nintendo, the software doesn't find a audience.

Edit @ below

When Starcraft II and Diable 3 launches Activision will be printing money. Next week ActiBlizzards shareholders may be taking a bath with $100 bills after Modern Warfare 2 launches.

Right??? Everyone has 73million dollars under their bed :D

Saaking3124d ago

So who need who more? Activision is a the joke of the gaming industry these days. I HOPE they drop support and take their rehashed games with them. Like Sony said, they just like to talk a lot.

sikbeta3124d ago (Edited 3124d ago )

Not gonna happen, too damn greedy and Kodick doesn't have BallZ to drop support and then explain to Act/Bliz shareholders

Funny thing is that I don't buy CoD, GH, or any other of their listed big sellers. Games I bought this year were Wolverine and Prototype. Guess I'm not in Activision's main focus, wonder if that means they'll be putting out less games I like and more I obviously don't?

And deserves to.

@1.6: Why should they be "reeling"? They are kicking ass. They are on the verge of what could be one of the biggest game launches ever in terms of sales, World of Warcraft is a freaking money machine, DJ Hero just came out and should make some bucks for them, they have Diablo 3 and Starcraft II coming along into a PC market that is DESPERATE for titles.

ATVI should be a $13-14 stock right now, minimum.

Love or hate Activision, they are going nowhere but up as a business.

They honestly shouldnt have anything to b1tch about the system. Yea it costs more but the costs are way more than made up for.

Also we all know which console Activision advertises for, this isnt in the least surprising.

ZBlacktt3124d ago (Edited 3124d ago )

So in other words, Sony brought in $118 million.

zoks3103124d ago

yep, 14 million more than the 360, if Acti made a call of duty for all 3 of Sony's platforms... they would make money like .. i dont know what.

Sarcasm3124d ago

Those PSP numbers are disappointingly low. No wonder developers don't want to support the PSP.

:(

n4gn4gn4gn4g3124d ago (Edited 3124d ago )

What games did Activision bring to PSP in 2008-2009?

Nothing but movie tie in shovelware mostly...

Maybe if Activision TRIED they would get some money out of it?

EDIT

BTW...completely off topic but if you want a PSPgo in Canada they are a $169 at myaxs.com (this is a store run for customers of TD Canada Trust but you can use ANY visa to register i think if not...TD VISAs start with 4520 01)...they also have the DSi for $139 if you like that platform!)

sikbeta3124d ago

That's true, $9m with pure crap and any real game to stand up

ZBlacktt3124d ago (Edited 3124d ago )

LOL at the person who disagreed with my factual figure above. Math must own you. But it's nice to see that you even know how to turn a computer on.

badz1493124d ago (Edited 3124d ago )

and it brings in $9m. for those who are trying to bash the PSP, look at the real situation 1st! AV hardly release any game on PSP! how do you expect great revenue with little effort?

released that account for Xbox moving up 3% year over year while PS3 only moved up 1%?

Was there an Activision exclusive?

If not...Activision had a point about b1tching on the PS3 since they were not seeing the growth on that platform that the were seeing in the Xbox.

Next year should tell the tale I guess.

cmrbe3124d ago

I really don't care though. I really don't like Acti.

STK0263124d ago

no exclusive. Most (I said most, not all) third party multiplatform titles do better on the X360 due to its user base. Of course, every now and then you have exceptions, but that would be the rule of thumb. Also, when you look at activision's big sellers, you'll notice most of them are sequels to games that were released on the X360's first year (CoD and GH both saw a release on the X360 in its first year, and both saw strong sales despite also being released on other platforms like the PS2 and the PC). The X360 is the platform to play CoD games (despite the PC version having better graphics and controls) as it has the biggest CoD user base and has what many believe to be a more FPS friendly controller than the PS3, leading to strong CoD sales on the X360 year after year.
