The other story is more serious, as I think it’s a lot more likely to be harmful to Activision employees and possibly the industry as a whole. Last month Activision president Bobby Kotick complained that perhaps his reputation as an industry villain was unfair. But this is the same Activision that tried to stop the release of Brutal Legend. Then we have him suing his golden goose in a very public display of power over some very vague charges, the side effect of which will be that his company isn’t going to be paying bonuses to Infinity Ward for the biggest selling game, ever. And then he promises to lower employee morale (although he phrases it differently) because, I suppose, there are still some people in the world who don’t completely hate the sight of him?
I don’t know Bob. Why are people so eager to see you as the villain? You tell me.
