Activision boss Bobby Kotick has claimed that traditional console companies such as Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo face a "struggle" to "figure out" an online future - one which the US publisher has already cracked.
So i checked upcoming activision games it went something like this COD COD GH COD TH GH DJH TH GH DJH COD NEW IP COD COD TH ;) But nah on a serious level people are alreay bored of activision games
It again seems like he’s talking about Blizzard and applying the MMO business model to other areas of the company. It’s not very clear because it’s corporate waffle for a conference. His words are showing you everything, but there telling you nothing. Pay as you go CoD? He can f**k off
wanted to create a new console, maybe
STFU Kod!ck!!!! What you're doing it's called collateral damage and it'll get worst over the time, while you rely so much on your every year games, other "new" games from Activision suffer from this sh!t, Blur is a primary example of that and over the time, people will get tired of COD and the other crap that comes out every year, If not already, I assure you, in the future, pretty much Blizzard games will be the only thing backing you...
@sikbeta nice bubbles
I think this guy is mental too. He thinks Activision have "cracked online" but sony/microsoft haven't?! Last time i checked, Activision were the ones using PSN and Xbox live for people to play and buy extra content. If Sony or Microsoft decided they don't want Activision games on their machines, Activision are the one who are going to be in trouble not the other way around.
I'm starting to dislike cvg.com. I mean alright so we all hate Kotick but this just seems like throwing some oil on the fire just to get some clicks. I mean the headline is a BIG exaggeration of what he actually said. I would recommend people read Kotick's statement before making any abrupt judgment. I mean I did not feel he said anything that is out of the ordinary for an exec guy. This is just CVG taking a couple of words out of his mouth, twisting them and then put them in again.
CVG tends to do that along with other bs every now and then.
well one things for sure. most of you jacktards will be buying blackops. I'm happy to report I never bought mw2. you guys are doing it to yourselves.
I mentioned it a while back. He's probably going to go the subscription route with CoD. That will be a negative ghost rider for me.
So Activision is buying Nintendo?
Ok straight up I'm tired of kotic and his arrogant attitude.. He is always turning his nose up to everyone that he owes his current status too.. I'm done.. Im not buying black ops and I refuse to buy anything with the words activision or blizzard on it.. I am going to start a petition on facebook I invite everyone to like it and get awareness out about this prick... It ends now!
Stop buying his games. I won't own bungie's games anymore either. funk him. this guy is the biggest douche bag around but hey lets go buy more games.
This guy needs to have his organs involuntarily donated after we force him to masturbate for 48 hours straight with a piece of 120 grit sand paper. Sorry for the graphic verbiage, but just even a photo of this yuppie can escalate my rage.
that sounds pretty painful.. makes my eyes water just reading that bit about the sandpaper
I like Bungie and Blizzard too much to not get their games, but this guy does piss me off, and there are no Activision games I like so I can stay away from them.
@Above I LOVE Bungie, i really do. I like how they treat their community. But because of this douchebag i won't buy CoD:Bo neither Bungie new game. I got tired of Guitar shit/Tony hawk a long ago.
Sorry, but the world has 1 smart person for every 1000 idiots.
Bungie is not owned by them, i believe blizzard is though. Bungie though made a deal for them to publish a game, so Bungie is still free to do other things at their discretion. Unfortunately they have a hold of Blizzard and if they let Blizzard to their thing, they will get the best profit they can get out of Blizzard. Soon as they step in Bye bye im not buying it. They better not screw with Diablo III oh Kotick, you better not. Listen to your "Fans"
No one would want his organs even if they where on death bed.
It's official: Kotick's gone mad, call the ambulansa!
'gone' mad? He's always been like this and rolling out rubbish.
mad? This is ACTIVISIONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN NN!
Would it have a swipe reader attachment? lmao.
Get back to me when your titles reach the quality of Sony 1st & 2nd party titles, also some of EA titles too you GD douche bag. Also why in the hell would I pay you company to play online? Id just find another game to play that's free.
Nobody is scared of Activision lol what do they got CoD? what else? LMFAO!!!!! Sony has 21 1st party studios that pumps out the best exclusives, MS dominates Online, Nintendos army is the casuals, and EA been on a role with the multiplats O yea Activision is gonna take over.
I hate this douch but they publish starcraft 2/blizzard, cod, bungie, all very talented studios/great games.(horrible publisher)They have some big guns though.
this guy kotick.... man i hate the guy... as he sees COD and bungie he feels he rules the world now... man i am pissed... i am so renting all their games from now on.. no buy what so ever... if u need to pay something eat dirt
Man this guy needs to get smack. He must be on drugs or something. He's literary losing he's mind.
Hey, Bobby, take Blizzard out of the equation and try saying the same thing. No clue why Blizzard ever joined Activision, just doesn't make sense. Also, EA technically is beating you and they're not relying on Blizzard and CoD.
"what can I say today that will piss off every gamer and at the same time talk smak about every company in the video game industry? . . . . ...... I got it!"
He won't be getting any of my money. I'm done with Activision entirely.
Does he sound like Emperor Palpatine, or what?
So where's the next 3do? Big talk no walk huh?
Thats why I stop supporting Activision over more than a year ago cause of this f u cker & they also have games that I dont like
Im going to get a bunch of disagrees, but this guy reminds me of a kyle. Must be Kyle's dad or something. Edited as someone who am i not going to name (shanks), NO I AM NOT (shanks), I WILL NOT(shanks) was going to report my comment. Respect my authoritaaah!
Hey shanks, they call Jews greedy for a reason, they take things that aren't theirs, including the Gaza strip. People think the Taliban are terrorists..I think Jews + the Zionist movement are far more f-ed up. Have a pleasant day.
Ah, so dchalfont sheds his Pixel Nazi persona to expose his true Nuremburg Nazi ID. 'Classy' begets 'classy'.
Right...so anyone who is not pro crimes against humanity and in support of the U.N/U.S backed Israeli terrorism against Palestine is a Nazi :S...you realise that Germany is but one country out of over 200. I will be glad when Israel is called to account for what they have done.
are u gonna show up in the next chapter of one piece?
I hate Israel I'm not anti-semitic.
Here is what I don't get. Are Jews a Race or Religion. They say they have a claim to Israel because the Jewish people were forced out. However the original resettlement in the 1940s were the holocaust survivors, most of which had little to no ties to the Jews that were kicked out. It had been thousands of years. They kicked out the people who had been living there for generations, with the backing of the US and UK(only 14% of the displaced population remained in the newly created Israel by the 1950's, with the percentage continuing to drop). They essentially did to the people living there the same thing they use as a reason for being allowed to just take it back. The newly created Israel, along with the 62.5 billion(modern day) a year that the US alone gives it(equal to our aid to ALL of Africa), continued to expand it borders, taking even more land from Palestine, directly against the agreements drawn up. Yet no one says a word. They then say they are just for attacking(slaughtering with far superior technology) Palestine, because Palestine attacked first. Despite the fact that none of the attacks were sanctioned by the Palestinian government(modern day, the war ended in 1948), and were carried out by the rightly pissed of Palestinian refuges(made refuges by, OMG, Israel) They say they are a sovereign nation, yet would completely collapse without the backing of other nations(namely the money given by the US).
Tats y I hate Jews they are very GREEDY.They Take Things that arent theres.Kotick is a DICK!!
i hate this guy !
. Then comes this guy again... : /
He's competitive. He doesn't want to be overtaken in the race for the Most Insane Award.
lets just boycott their games. ive had enough COD anyways.. whos with me
Been there since early this year ;)
And not one console game this gen. I borrowed one of the earlier Spider Man games (which was sh!t). Nothing against Blizzard - great developers, but I won't be playing Cataclysm either. Partially on account of their association with Activision (and their inability to give more customization options to characters or an engine update despite being the most successful MMO on the Western market).
*Yawn* Every year the same, people talk about boycotting COD. It's getting old. You guys are gonna buy it anyway. And next year, too! I haven't bought a single Activision game besides COD4 btw.
Yeah same here, COD4 was the last AssVision game I bought. Recycled shovelware has been there stock and trade for a good couple of years now.
And how does you7r comment help ceekay? I don't buy Activision's games either but wouldn't dream of pouring scorn on someone else saying they didn't either!
This guy is seriously insecure about something. O.o I'm guessing he must have a tiny, tiny penis...
this guy makes sony and MS fans unite on hating him and taking him down
Doubt it... 360 gamers are very loyal to COD regardless of Kotic bad mouthing, and the average PS3 gamer not the educated one btw, will give a $h1t about it and continue to buy COD... There are more dumb consumers than educated consumers, and that's an undeniable fact...
This guy...is going to ruin the video game industry. You might not pay attention to it because it "doesn't effect you" but you guys need to open your eyes. He is right, people continue to buy his shit and that's the problem. But though he realizes that we have the power, he also knows that the majority video game person doesnt give a flying fck about this so he can in theory say whatever he wants a get away with it. Think before you buy.
I think COD MW 2 on PS3 sold about 6,000,000 so I would say the majority doesn't give a fvck about the COD, not the other way. I personally have already decided I will not buy another Activision game no matter how good it is. There are more than enough good games that I won't miss another yearly rehash. If Bungie releases an amazing game that doesn't play like Halo then I'll rent it to check it out or buy it used.
@Kagon01; 360 gamers are very loyal to COD? Way to generalize. :| Anyways, this guy is really no different than a lot of other CEO's, presidents, etc. :|
Halo: Reach outsold MW2 in pre-orders and in the first 24 hours(360 Only). Yeah, 360 Gamers love cod...
I'll take that seriously when he isn't using their consoles to sell his games and making them money.
If you hate him, stop giving him money. No more Call of Duty. No more Guitar Hero. No more Starcraft. No more WoW. No Diablo III. No..whatever Bungie wants to do next. Stop paying or stop crying.
Not that I'm happy to miss out on some great games but screw it, I'm not going to prejudice the future of the gamer by giving this abortion money. even if tht means missing on some great games, so be it, not like I don't have a choice /vice versa, TOOO many great games, so skipping on a few won't hurt. just know which few to avoid
Sad fact:most COD buyers haven't ever heard of Kotick and won't until his arrogance his the normal papers-which will happen soon enough with his mouth.
That will get you executed in certain countries!!!
this guy is just asking for MS,nintendo and Sony to boycott all his games.
Sounds like he's putting Bungie on the COD diet.
