What a little b*tch.

"These guys made me rich, but they'll never be successful without me."

Classic Kotick. This is why I won't buy your games (except for DJ Hero).

"(except for DJ Hero)"

...

Megaton2127d ago

That's why gamer boycotts don't work.

MrMccormo2127d ago

That was a bit of sarcasm at the end there. Why would I boycott Activision's games? Kotick doesn't make the video games. Sorry, I guess I should have put an /s at the end.

TOO PAWNED2127d ago

so wait a second, these guys create most succesful IP of all time, making billions for their company, but when they ask for (smaller) part of that money, they betray him? Ok, nice logic there. I guess in his world slavery is still going strong...

Dnied2127d ago

As soon as their new game trailer comes out and starts with "From the creators of CALL OF DUTY" they will be 'successful again'

MasFlowKiller2127d ago

How can any respected gamer/video Game developer support this guy
I cant believe the people over at bungie sold out to this guy,
sorry but am really having a hard time respecting bungie right now, lets hope the stigma of working for Activations doesn't effect the people over at bungie, becuase they are one of the best studios in the industry, i would hate to see that change becuase of who they work for.

crematory2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

you make me cry from laughing, thank you

IaMs122127d ago

@masflowkiller

Just to let you know they didnt buy out Bungie, they are publishing their new IP thats it. They dont even own the rights to that said IP, yet at least. So bungie is still free to roam the world, they just have the financial backing from Activision. Which could be a good thing since well they got a lot or a bad thing because well the got Kotick not wanting to fork any of it over.

AntoineDcoolette2127d ago

He didn't elaborate on why they will have a difficult time being successful.

gee.. that's like saying i'll never have sex with you , except the next time..

facepalm well deserved .

At least do us a favor , and get it used , that way activision gets no money , unless you buy dlcs

edhe2127d ago

Well... sex *is* fun.

fuckoffodion2127d ago

hey edhe you douchebag, you're completely off topic. What does sex and masturbation have to do with anything? If you have problems getting laid, that's your problem. If you have fun with self-gratification, keep it to yourself!

edhe2126d ago

Replying to off topic is off topic. Failgasm!

Kotick doesn't make them, but he is in charge of the publisher releasing them. Every purchase is money going to Activision and paying Kotick.

Either way, I wouldn't pay Activison in general. Been years since I bought an Activision game and, unless they come up with something creative, will be a long time before I buy another one.

I'm not going to say "don't buy Activision games" to anyone, that's stupid, they may enjoy them, but I'm not going to give a crap company my money... Capcom are about to go the same way... I can't see myself buying another Capcom game this gen either.

Baka-akaB2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

i wouldnt tell anyone to boycott , if they like a game they like a game .

Just that if you make such a statement back it up fully .

In case my it would just be an utter lack of interest in any activision games , with my dislike of their antics as a bonus side dish .

As for capcom , i'm afraid they lost me on most things non fighting games related . I'll never say never , but bare some tremendous changes , asura's wrath will be the only capcom non fighting game i'll be getting for a long while , and that's only because i love cyberconnect 2 , and am surprised it(s not a namco game instead .

bjornbear2127d ago

I don't even remember it...maybe WoW when it first came out?! or COD4 for Mac AAAGES ago

still, not only is it an active boycott ( i just see acti as company DAMAGING the gaming industry more than its helping it)

but I also have no interest...I mean, seriously =/ everything they've released thus far has been MEH....

Baka-akaB2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

when it came first WoW wasnt an activision game , nor any blizzard games , except starcraft 2 , so dont worry .

Looking back , in the past 10 years i've only bought quake 3 (2000) (doom 1-2 , quake 1-2 are more than 10 years old) , vampire the masquarade : redemption (2000), vampire the masquarade : bloodlines (2004) and one guitar hero (2007).

I can safely say that i dont care much for them .

danielle0072127d ago

That's what I do. The only $$ I gave them recently was for the COD 5 map packs.. I <3 Nazi Zombies.

But, in reality, Activision will never fall. They're buddied up with Blizzard, for one, and they also have the Call of Duty brand.

gamingdroid2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

I don't boycott any particular company, just bad games!

All this hate for Activision makes me want to support them more!!! It wasn't too long ago EA was the hated company in the industry, the devil one may say. Yet now, the entire gaming universe has all, but forgotten and found a new devil!

meganick2127d ago

Good call on only buying used. If I every purchase an Activision game, which isn't that often, I always buy used, and it's mainly because of that idiot Kotick. That guy is poison for Activision. I'm surprised he hasn't been somehow forced out of the company to help improve its sagging image.

SimpleSlave2127d ago

I hate Activision and Kotick and will never buy any of their games. Except Call of Duty Black Ops, Guitar Hero, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts, GoldenEye 007, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, DJ Hero 2, Monster Jam 2011, True Crime: Hong Kong, plus every other game that they publish, plus Blizzard games and lets not forget all of their downloadable content.

But I absolutely hate this guy, and hope Activision loses money, goes bankrupt and I hope they fire this guy.

P.S. I will never buy another Tony Hawk game, that'll show them.

-End moronic statement-

If you want shit to change stop being such a flaky gamers, STOP BUYING anything from Activision/Blizzard.

Just Saying

Cheers

CrIpPeN2127d ago

Except.... insert Facepalm.

JUDALATION2127d ago

If a game is bought used (from game stop) then Activision does not make a cent... I will never buy a new game from Activision ever again! However if Naughty dog or Gurella comes out with a new game and there is a used one for 4 bucks less I will TAKE THE HIT AND BUY IT NEW... this is how you punnish greedy companies while enjoying their games while rewarding loyal developers of games like LITTLE BIG PLANET and RED DEAD REDEMPTION!!!!

Lich1202127d ago

Ill never make the claim that I wont but activision games because they have blizzard joined up. If not for them, I don't even think I'd have to try to not purchase their games.

Sitris2127d ago

I can not and will not stop buying blizzard games, starcraft 2 is my GOTY so I will not be holding back for any dlc or expansions for any blizzard games haha

Lich1202126d ago

Same for me! I can't get enough of Starcraft 2. Its like the original starcraft all over again... in the best way possible.

"It shook my belief in two specific people, who were my friends"

Wow, I can't imagine how he treats his enemies.

CBaoth2127d ago

he felt betrayed. The most honest emotion Bobby may have ever revealed to us gamers. It's not that I like the guy, but I understand it now.

Baka-akaB2127d ago (Edited 2127d ago )

dont believe it for a second , it's too easy . Hell in west and zampella's version , he is probably the one doing the betrayal and treating them rather badly .

And it still doesnt explain the way ex and current infinity ward employées were treated during the affair .

ZombieAutopsy2127d ago

"I can't imagine how he treats his enemies."

He charges them 15$ for DLC....oh wait.

Ps_alm3k2127d ago

you guy make this man smile everyday......
I just can't grasp that!

skip2mylou2127d ago

that is some major bs "i feel betrayed"? fuck that you never payed IW their royalties for the game sales
