Bobby Kotick wants to sell game cutscenes as standalone movies

Hey, wanna know a secret? Bobby Kotick loves money. While recent rumours regarding subscription fees for the next Call of Duty game have been all but squashed, it seems the boys at Activision are hard at work on other ways to make sure your cash ends up in their pockets. Using Starcraft 2 as an example, Bobby Kotick today announced that he is interested in selling the cutscenes found in games as standalone movies.

This guy's lost his mind

I always thought that getting to a cutscene (not all mind) was a reward and part of the experience of playing a videogame, part of the enjoyment of watching a cutscene is that youve earned it not brought it.

versusALL2531d ago

Uh, why would I pay for gaming cutscences when theres youtube

mastiffchild2531d ago

Kotick just cares about the balance sheet. If he could get us paying twice as muich for even crappier, less expensive games that could end up killing gaming he would do itg. He's slash and burn. He's milking franchises while cutting testing and dev budgets. He's also allowed to get away with saying things a CEO in other industries would get hung for saying-the man nhas zero respect for the gamers who pay his wages and as a result is so shortsighted iyt's amazing.

Thing is Bobby doesn't play games so , as long as the balance looks ok when he jumps ship , when he moves on to another area he won't care if he's been part of putting us in terminal decline, if he's damaged industry gamer relations to a point of no return. He wouldn't care iuf there was never anoither game-he just wants the money, wants it now and we can sod off. The lack nof betas and A testing on MW2 was what led to the online woes and bugs at launch yet is trhere any change for BO No, he'll keep cutting corners while he can get away with it-depressing and ALIENATING the talent along the way . MAN IS A TOOL WHO CARES ONLY ABOUT MONEY. As I said-TOOL.
