"A battle against Russian nationalists may give Activision Blizzard Inc. the biggest entertainment release of the year, said Chief Executive Officer Bobby Kotick."
Look at the pic... Just draw 2 horns and there's the Devil for you (just look at he big smile on this @sshls face)... For the sake of the gaming community I hope it sells below what Activison expects it (although I highly doubt it)....
Way ahead of you buddy.
I dont like the publisher either, but I wont deprive myself of this amazing game. Day 1 for me.
Have some decency. Get it used!
Some one is a little too over confident I must add.
The hate towards Activision and Modern Warfare 2 reminds me of when fantards on every internet forum were claiming how they wont be buying World at War because it's a backward step or made by Treyach or whatever idiotic reason they used for justifying their idiocy. The game launched to amazing success and has since sold over 10 million copies. When will you guys learn that you are the minority. If you're not going to get the game, no one cares. Just shut the hell up about it already.
You conformist, you.
Im picturing that really heavy looking sign, falling on his head... I feel better now.....
he can hang with Michael Bay and they can spend their unearned millions together.
Just for that... im not buying.
...I'll go see a movie.
Slap the hell out of this Guy!!!
@ StanLee ya, and your the guy who likes touching your toes like the rest of the lemmings... just because millions like jumping off the cliff, does not mean those who can see whats coming should do as well. stop complaining about the people complaining... why don't you email bobby boy and tell him you want to be pen-pals and how much you like bending over for him.
I hate hime but he has what I need. Modern Warefare is a day one for me... GameFly day one that is.
This smug [email protected] can never keep his idiotic trap shut for long. As long as he's with Activision I will be buying all their games used. So go ahead, Bobby, outsell Uwe Bol and brag about it. You'll still be a useless pr!ck.
Come on man, I am sick of people with that attitude. Stanlee is saying the truth. For the couple thousand that protest this, that number will look like nothing when the game sells over 15 million. Therefore, that makes the protesters the minority. Also, just because someone is looking forward to this game, doesn't give a person the right to call them a lemming or a sheep, or any other names. In America, the price is the same. If they decided to raise the price, I would pay for it. MW2 is my most anticipated game this year. This game is worth $100 to me in the sense I will be playing it non-stop for a year or two. I respect your choice to not purchase it and that is fine; but calling someone a name and hinting that they are "followers" or "lemmings" is juvenile and inappropriate. No one should dictate or suggest how another should spend their hard earned money. I am not picking on you in general Dark Witness, I enjoy a lot of your comments and have commented to you on occasions and had pleasant experiences. But that issues just irritates me.
Stupid Kodick feels so confident Arrongace will kill you B*iatch!!!! lol
Stanlee I am sure no cares if we don't get the game the same way no one cares what you think, yet you continue to comment on it. Why don't YOU STFU?!
kotick sucks ass
The words of The devil Himself.
James Cameron says Hello.
More like his budget amounts to the entire gross of a top Hollywood film.
You won't be seeing any of my hard earned money. If I get any shooter, it'll be MAG. Zipper/Sony will more than likely get my $$$ in the shooter genre. To close out the year, I'll be purchasing Batman AA, Ratchet & Clank ACIT, Jak & Daxter PSP, Gran Turismo PSP, LBP PSP, Assassins Creed PSP, Assassins Creed 2, Silent Hill Shattered Memories PS2, God of War Collection, and Resident Evil (whatever) on Wii. My thumbs are sore just THINKING about all these games. Gotta love it though!! Carry on ladies and gents.
OMG man. of course they will outsell top hollywood films! look how much their game cost!
The people boycotting this game are in the minority and of course I agree, however even if 1% of potential buyers are not buying the game due to Kotick's remarks and antics, it still amounts to millions in lost revenue for Activision. That's irresponsible as a CEO.
thank you .... finally someone understands. these guys are business men... they work off charts, numbers, graphs, profit, revenue..etc. does he care about the boycott - no, does he care about the people complaining - no but when he projects his figures to the board and his investors and they miss those numbers by a few million lost - yes, that he will care about. and in as much as the number of people wanting to boycott the game seems very small even a couple of thousand still ads up and will still need to be explained why they lost those extra sales. as many have said, even if people just hold off getting it within the first few weeks, it will make a big difference. most of the people still rushing to by this game are people who just don't know about all this stuff going on and dont come to websites like this. They just need telling, tell them there are better games to get anyway and what the price is, and you will be surprised how many change their mind.
i've already persuaded my entire office(most are PC gamers so it was a piece of cake) and most of my friends to buy something else.
People who comes here and say it won't make a difference and no one cares haven't a clue how business works. Fact is there are more competition now, especially in this genre with BF:BC2 releasing soon and plently of other high profile games out. The fact is you piss enough people off and they will go elsewhere. Sure when it's all said and done they will still make their money, but the developers make approx. $30 on every full price purchase after expenses. If just 500,000 people don't buy that is $15,000,000!!!
StanLee why dont you shush already. I would be happy if we can even make a dent in their profits ofcourse people like you will buy it like all the sheep follow the flock. These are the same people that would pay 60$ for a expansion pack. You say we whine but if gaming companies see that games still sell even though they used a price hike and pretty much didnt improve their first game and even removed things that the last game had then you know there are gonna be other publishers following that and well be all paying 80$ for our games with no reason. Multiplayer went the same way games got shorter just add multiplayer and you have nice excuse for a short game like brutal legend and other games a nice new addition of current gen.
he can boast all he wants, but no amount of money will save him from hell.
LOL! This guy is sick with it.Im not even going to fool with COD:mw2 if anything a rent.Im just going to wait on buying Battlefield:Bad Company 2 imo it looks better anyway til then ill be on BF:bc2 beta.Activision is getting to arrogant.I hope the New super mario blow it out the water in sells lol.
Lol, Video gaming already damaging hollywood big time , uncharted 2 n now cod mw 2 n in future Heavy rain n others , hollywood dead for sure
I for one know the BFBC1 PS3 servers were HORIFFIC! i have 20mb(dwnld)and 15mb(upload) service and ALWAYS had some issues with lag. Every other game was flawless. So before you run to DICE'S (High Priced) dedicated servers or their crappy console setup...remember they abandoned BFBC1 6 months after launch...how do you think they will do this time.......
Can't stop Dumb xbots liks MGR from buying
1. that was pretty funny. 2. So, no PS3 users are going to purchase this game? And if they do, and more people buy MW2 than UC2, does that mean ps3 users are dumb too?
It will mean more second-hand copies for us to pick up at a later date
I remain fairly confident that I am overly confident.............in the purchasing tendencies of 14yr. children with nothing but time to waste and money to burn.We sink yet swim together.....somehow in this sea of doubt.
I'm starting to hate this Evil MS type of company now the more and more I see/read about them. The CEO ( Robert K ) is nothing but a jackass who openly bashes consumers of game consoles by wanting to raise the game prices. He doesn't give a rats ass about the PCer's either. Why kids buy this game is beyond me, lol..... If anything buy it USED off Craigslist, ebay, etc. Don't give this jackass a dime.
Yeah I can't believe Activision and Microsoft like to make money. All the cool companies such as sony like to lose $4.7 billion every quarter, thats how business should be ran!
Hey look, someone who completely missed the point. Wow shocker. I own a company and making a profit had nothing to do with what I said. Move along now... nothing more to see here. But hey, while your at it. Go research on why Sony took a loss on purpose and then come back and report on it. Since you are very clueless on that as well I bet.
I understand what he is doing is wrong and just a shot for extra income since he knows the demand is extremely high. I think it is selfish and terrible to raise the price overseas and I hope no other game publishers follow his lead. Even if they did, I don't think it would work. Do you think people would pay extra for a game like AC2 or ANOTHER guitar hero? Some will, yeah, but they will lose sales. This game is going to sell regardless and he knows that. It's a shame that is his attitude. I agree with you. Yet, one aspect I don't agree with is you questioning WHY anyone would buy this, especially new. I am a huge supporter of IW and have loved all their FPS. Luckily, I live in America and the price hasn't gone up. Even if it did here, I would still purchase it (a little annoyed though). To me, I don't purchase a whole lot of games. I am pumped for this game and the ends justify the means for me. Some people just LOVED the first MW and can't wait to get involved with this game. Again, I do see your point on Bobby and I agree.
shareholders>fans is his mentality. this is how corporate america operates now.
