    This is hilarious. What EA says is all true.

    They should have a highschool course on Kotickology.
    I don't understand the logic in a single thing he says.

    Jeff Brown is my new hero. Kotick needs to just shut up before he floods his office with the shit spewing out of his mouth.

    I still love EA for its comments about the Brutal Legend lawsuit. Ea said something like, "Its like you divorced wife and your now suing her for meeting a better man"

    Then you just don't think logically. A lot of what he says makes perfect sense, and I'm sure he means a lot of it. On the other hand, I still think he's a douche bag who talks out of both sides of his ass. With that in mind, EA is no better. Consider the developers they've run into the ground within the last five years. Fuck them, and fuck Activision. They're both heartless corporations who make great games.

    Here's how this works: I give them my money, they give me a worthwhile product -- end of story. All this PR bullshit is just that -- bullshit.

    Well this is the lowest form of gloating, acting like big shot with no substance to back it up. I mean SEGA gloats also but they at least put out their flaws when they thought their games were going to be big then apologizes for the minor flaws. Activision is only making Guitar Hero which to me Rock Band is better IMO; WoW is created by Blizzard they are just jumping the band wagon; and CoD:MW2 is only good due to previous CoD successes in the past.

    Which about other Activision games that Kotick didn't explain like SHOVELWARE trash?

    49.99 for hardcover. Want a coverpage to explain what the book is about? 5 dollars. Want the book with illustrations? 10 more dollars. Want the charts and graphs as well? 20 more dollars. Standing in line to get a signature inside the book by Bobby Kotick himself? 20 dollars for standing up in the line and 20 dollars for getting the book signed. There's a 30 dollar penalty if you leave the line. Expect to wait 2 years for the paperback edition with even more payments and fees.


    The second book will be released episodically. Each will cost 10 dollars and will have "expansions" and "rewrites" to further explain the same shit that's already shoved down your throat.

    He's (Kotick) basically saying that Activision actively maintains a policy in which they allow a developer to remain independent and autonomous; whereas EA assimilates developers and washes away the identity which helped make them great.

    being quiet and concentrated is what has earned respect which i think nintendo does best... the guys from sony even do such things (if i am not mistaken about the promotion of move against the wiimote)
