PSM3 Blog: Why the Vivendi/Blizzard and Activision merger will change games forever

While the most casual of games observers might dismiss it as an irrelevance, the biggest - or rather, most significant - news of the year is the merger of Activision and Blizzard; forming a super company that's potentially even mightier than EA. The overall deal is worth an estimated $18.9 billion (88.7m GBP) and sees the (sort of) renamed Activision Blizzard stake a claim for the world's biggest publisher.

Nice read, the near end part with Resi and MGS devs was awesome. Metal Gear Evil or Resident Solid.

EA is going down for sure. Especially if Activision creates a console version of Warcraft.

What's next? Activision NFL Football 2010?

Activision actually cares about PS3 games... we are gonna see a chnge in EA real soon.

"While Blizzard have delivered a stern 'no way' when asked if WoW would ever make it onto consoles, it can surely only be a matter of time before the mega MMORPG finds its way onto PS3."
PS3 is badass...serisouly World of Warcraft?

Can you imagine how huge A World Of Warcraft on the PS3 would be if they made it look like that tech demo of Project Offset...

Now that they have merged with Activision this game is possible since with this huge amount of resources and possible loans and investment they can invest hard in making an amazing Console version. Pushing the system past it's limits and probably changing gaming like never before.

I can just see it now... wow - it would be amazing if they actually do something like that.

Check out this tech demo of Project Offset to see what I mean. -Then think what WOW might look like.. would be a seriously amazing gaming company to try to beat. Because there games would have resources other game companies could only dream of.
