    Honestly, I can see what he's saying - online gaming is on the rise, and with cloud computing dominating right now, things could be headed that direction.

    Fortunately, I think that it is going to be a long time until then, and if console gaming does die out as a trend, I have a hard time believing Nintendo, at least, would put any of their games on another machine these days - people aren't going to stop buying any Zelda, Mario, or Metroid game ever again because of Activision.

    Man, I don't want September to be known as 'Kotick' month with all the crap he's spewed out so far. My birthday is this month (in about a week).

    hah, it'll be a cold day in the arctic hell before cloud computing or gaming comes to Canada, with its pathetic bandwidth limits and generally bastardly telecom policies.

    That said, there's still something I like about having a physical package/DVD/cartridge/whatever. The only way I'd get into cloud gaming is if it were dirt cheap, as you're really getting nothing for your money other than the ability to play for however long the company decides to let you.

    When you have Bungie and Blizzard in your pocket, with the rights to Call of Duty, you can be a total dick in interviews. They're making mad money on the game series' that they own, and it's not going to stop soon.

    Bingo! Activision is saying a lot of crap because of CoD which is still like a pusedo game of Halo. Hey, Kotick while we are on the subject, tell me why Activision is remaking a RARE game that was published by Nintendo? Why not make a James Bond game of your own origin? Oh wait, EA has the rights to that game so that will mean...Activision is going online due to the fact they can't dominate in the gaming industry.

    Oh, and Activision doesn't know shit about online gaming. What have they done to create anything unique for online gaming? Steam is still the best online delivery system on the planet and the fact that it is also an integrated communications tool that allows you to play games with your friends is even better. What has Activision done in the last 5 years? The only thing they did was Battle.net 2.0 which already had the framework from the original Battle.net in place which was created by Blizzard long before Activision bought them. And this clown thinks that any of their online play from non-Steam games is really all that good, they are full of crap.

    No online system is going to be truly great unless it's as robust as Steam is, which to be honest is downright impossible on a console without massive storage and very fast servers for which you can provide games.

    Well you don't have to pay taxes for games on Steam, I have never payed tax on them and I am Canadian. That is one of the biggest advantages for me, it cuts down on production costs of producing a disc, art work and the cases which can save a few dollars. Then again, PC games have always been cheaper even for the same games as their console counterparts.

    Bobby Kotick is a fucking genius in the business world. The idea of exploiting a popular franchise to death and making birrions in the process.

    Nobody is going to be able to stop Activision become the largest in the world. The public (And masses of idiots here) won't stop buying their games, and there's nothing we can do to change that, because everyone can't stop playing an fps game, a genre that improve itself as much as sports games.
