Activision CEO thinks that they have been taking risks and creating innovation.
They have shown some real innovation but yet they don't list them down as in what did they innovate for this new game. This shows me that it is just lip service, nothin more. Destiny looks awesome, COD not so much.
COD not so much? Did you not see the new amazing fish AI? http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I suppose it's easy to fund risks when they publish the biggest money grab in the business every single year. The worst part about it is that they've gotten people used to it. So much so that the people who play the game have to buy into it to keep playing with friends. A game, a season pass, and (if you're on 360) a subscription to live every year is almost like paying for a console every year. Ridiculous.
Yup it's easier , and yet they dont even do it .
I think you haven't notice the real innovation. Didn't you see it? forget about 1080p or 60 fps or new gameplay mechanic..etc we are looking at revolutionary and game changing innovation. We're getting FISH & DOG in the new COD. This is so next gen. I can't play anymore on my ps3 or vita, I need the damn FISH right now.
Ah yes, risks. Risks like publishing the same game with a different name and different guns every year, real risk takers you lot.
L O L
different guns... I think that is being kind to them. for the most part they have had the same guns each ear as well. with each new game they add maybe 2 or 3 new guns and take out 1 or 2 old guns and that is how they have slowly given the illusion of adding new gunz.
Real innovation= fish, dogs. Risks= maybe they wanted to tell lack of appetite for risks, we can forgive you for your miscommunication activision.
We’ve shown some “real innovation” and an “appetite” for “risks” A dog and a lead woman in COD...................WOW!!!!! ! Both a victory for woman and animal rights within games came at such a big risk!
Innovation please you really think fish arm hair,and the ability to customise a character is new,and the riskiest thing theyve done was killing crash with those crappy titans games.
Man please.. They can't even risk making a next gen game.. This makes me want killzone even more now.
Despite the world wide sport of activision bashing I would say they took at least a risk with the first Skylanders game as they invested a lot of money into it.
Are they all clinically blind over at Activision?
It takes lot of risk to and innovation to bring next gen intelligent FISH into reality.
I hope they are serious about what they are saying.
Man...I need to get my weed from who ever activision buy their stuff from man!
I literally rolled on the floor laughing. Good job, Activision.
The only risks they've taken after COD4 was massively funding Destiny . Wich is a tenuous , given how popular Bungie is . With those funds and Bungie's aura , it's Bungie and activision's fault truly if they dont succeed . What i wonder about is how any interviewer can listen to that with a straight face , not burst into laughter and put them on the spot with their crap . They've even cut off risky ips and studios Arent you "journalists" now merely infomercial and ad outlets ?
* looks at call of duty* Ummm, sureeee and I'm the president.
Are--are these guys serious?
lol yea right, how about making a Spyro game that doesnt involve buying 3 same spyro figures with different name and color.
I would believe them, but I can't see anything beyond CoD.
this game will still sell 10 million copies. No matter how much hate it receives. COD is still very fun, midnight launch gaming on my PS4
With Skylanders and Destiny (yet to be proven) yes, with Call of Duty for years, no.
taking risk for sure: the walking dead: survival instincts, TMNT: Out of the Shadows, Deadpool..... not really a good risk if you ask me.
Destiny isn't a risk. It's from the creators of Halo, one of THE most popular fps' ever made. Not to mention it's a super generic sci-fi game. It's impressive looking no doubt, but nothing about it looks or feels "new". Skylanders was not a risk. Look at that game, it looks like every cartoony platformer ever, not to mention having a toy line which is a SUREFIRE way of roping in millions of ADD children across the globe. Oh and did I mention Spyro? Activision basically used the character of Spyro to boost sales of the first game, before completely abandoning him once they'd mesmerised enough children. They're fostering a generation of materialist consumer drones and showing a complete disregard for the history of games by just exploiting the Spyro IP. The Walking Dead: Survival Instincts? Come on, a zombie apocalypse game? That is also an fps? In this day and age, how exactly does that constitute a "risk"? Deadpool and TMNT? Riding of the success of the Batman games, the latter already being a hugely popular brand. Activision are incapable of taking real risks because for them, profit comes wholly before creativity.
