It seems that old Bobby Kotick is boasting his company again. In todays Activision Earnings Call he’s been making quite a few remarks about his company
isnt this what they all said last year....
and previous year, and next year
But he is actually right. MW2 was the biggest launch game to my knowledge and I doubt BO will be any less considering pre-order sales are more than that of MW2. If He said that last year about MW2, then he was correct and obviously he is going to say it again since all signs indicate BO to be bigger. Don't dismiss him on the basis that you may not like him
All COD's hence forth will always be the biggest entertainment launch... The only game I think that can rival it is just GTA5, but thats not coming even next year, so COD has the thrown for at least 2 years... Sad but he is speaking the truth..
LMAO this guy is so full of himself.
That ain't all he's full of.
Indeed, you can see that, watching this pic for 3 sec: http://www.primotechnology....
Stuff of nightmares, bro. Stuff. Of. Nightmares.
Hes full of shit
Indeed, it is what they said about MW2, and they were right. It currently holds the record.
without call of duty this guy would be nothing.
Not exactly. Last year he said "MW2 WILL be the biggest entertainment launch" Notice the "is likely" in his comment regarding BO. Guy is not sure.
Gran Turismo 5.
No chance, what with all this release date malarkey.
Ps3 games aren't known for selling huge launch numbers, they sell over a long period of time.
Yes. They said that last year, and the predictions were right. Ever heard of record breakers? Yeah, they're people who try to beat the current record... DUH!
Kotick, anti-christ, Hitler....they're all the same person
I think you owe hitler an apology.
one little joke and you rip my bubble to shreds....sigh, guess it was of bad taste/
he is none. quit hating. sure he is a douch but he isnt that low... yet.
The following logic clearly states why Kotick and his statements are absurd: "Ko" means cow in Swedish. Tick is something that give u diseases or make you say something stupid without any intention of saying it. Therefor Kotick is a cow that says weird things and is spreading diseases in the game industry. :)
I thought halo reach was? What is next GT5 being the biggest release this year on PS3?
Was the biggest entertainment launch of 2010 so far
COD will easily out do either Halo or GT if only because it's multiplatform.
GT5 is definitely the biggest game to be released this year for PS3. And biggest Driving Simulator of this generation.
This guy is sooooo full of it. Even though BO will be really good, it wont be the biggest entertainment launch of all time.
Lookin forward to it,
Yeah well Kotick is "the biggest asshole of all time" ahem correction "Likely to be the biggest asshole of all time"
Bobby, we here at N4G love you very much....<<end sarcasm>>
Is that going to make the game better? If not you should shut the hell up.
Hope Kotick dies a violent death.
Meh, I own MW2 for both consoles and they're pretty much the same game.
Jesuschrist That smile...
As much as I hate this guy, he might be right. This game is hyped like no other. Halo has done its mark but an exclusive FPS like that just can't compete with this juggernaut.
you guys have a lot of hate for him......well it's understandable.
Kotick i honestly hate you so much words can't express my feelings. Ugh and to think i just decided to buy black ops...
He is right though. Black Ops is slap bang in the middle of possibly the best 2 CoD games. Its set between WWII and Modern Warfare It has Zombies The campaign is a mixture of Modern Warfare 2's gameplay and World at War Combine unique fans of WAW and MW2... boom. Nuke FTW.
get kotick articles of n4g,we got enough bastards around here
Where's Patcher when you want to rub it in his face?
lol yeah a military shooter! Uncharted 3, Deus : Ex HR, ME3, Arkham City and The Last Guardian are much bigger releases for me!!!
While you wait in line for those, I'll wait in line for Portal 2, Bulletstorm, Brotherhood, I Am Alive and Gears 3.
portal 2 ok...the rest nope
I'm no longer a COD fan and I have a serious dislike tor Kotick but it really would not surprise me if he is right with this. MW2 was the biggest launch for a game ever and apparently the pre-orders for Black Ops is greater than MW2. If that trend keeps up then he'll certainly be on the money with this prediction.
Gaming public-"where's our value Mr Kotick? Is it in the P2P instead of dedicated servers that you can't afford even though smaller games can?" Kotick-"Premium!" GP- "Is the value in the yearly updates meaning we have the same game four years running with only differing killstreaks and skins?" Kotick-"COD=premium!&quo t; GP-" Are the price hikes because more work goes into COD than other games and running just matchmaking servers rather than game improving, lag killing proper dedicated servers is more expensive rather than , logically, cheaper and another of your cost cutting corners?" Kotick-"read my lips p-r-e-m-i-u-m!" GP-"But will the SP be wishy-washy cla.." Kotick(interrupting)-"PR EMIUM!!" GP- But the game WILL be be.." Kotick-"It will be PREMIUM!!! I'd go as fare as calling it premiyummy. It's ALL good cos it's all premium so shut up and buy. And BUY" Kotick-"Premium blah, blah, entertainment event of the decade blah, blah blah(to lackey-can I stop now I have industry typoes to insult now I've "serviced " the fans?)" Lackey-"sure Lord Kotickus. By ther power of the premium you shall be delivered to glory with only Bungie worthy of lookingb upon your angelic face!" Kotick-"Angelic?" Lackey" Kinda like premium" Kotick-"Ohhh! There will; be money, won't there? Lot's of it? Premium levels of it?"
Call Of Duty BO....B...O.....BO....Body Odor.....coincidence? Hmmmm.....Probaby not.
