PostSubject: Real quotes from the CEO of Activision   Thu Jun 10, 2010 3:03 pm

There is something wrong with Bobby Kotick. The CEO of activision is apparently trying to piss off gamers. To put it as clearly as possible, the man is insanely corrupted by his greed. Here are the words directly from his mouth in no altered context:

"The goal that I had in bringing a lot of the packaged goods folks into Activision about 10 years ago was to take all the fun out of making video games."

http://kotaku.com/5359567/bobby-kotick-wanted-to-take-all-the-fun-out-of-making-video-games

"you know if it was left to me, I would raise the prices even further.”

http://seanmalstrom.wordpress.com/2009/08/09/dont-bother-trying-to-defend-bobby-kotick-ceo-of-activision-blizzard/

"Long-term focus and commitment to providing superior returns to our shareholders."

"First, right now we are ahead of our plans to realize the benefits of the combined company, especially our key profit and profit margin objectives."

"With respect to the franchises that don’t have the potential to be exploited every year across every platform with clear sequel potential that can meet our objectives of over time becoming $100 million plus franchises, that’s a strategy that has worked very well for us."

"there will continue to be opportunities for us to exploit the PC platform in ways that we haven’t yet."

"In the last cycle of videogames you spent $50 on a game, played it and took it back to the shop for credit. Today, we’ll (charge) $100 for a guitar. You might add a microphone or drums; you might buy two or three expansions packs, different types of music. Over the life of your ownership you’ll probably buy around 25 additional song packs in digital downloads. So, what used to be a $50 sale is a $500 sale today."

To be honest, he's just saying what all CEOs of giant corporations think.

This Poos happened with the film industry, it happened with the music industry. The games industry is no different.

Absolutely.

Look at George Lucas. Steven Spielberg. Pure Pwnage. Bottled water. I could keep on listing, but the point is already made.

I'd say this. She also talked about how New Moon was still in production too.
