Activision calls for console price cuts

Forums - Sales Discussion - Activision calls for console price cuts

sony should drop the 120 gig to 199 and the 250 gig to 299.
this will push consoles for sure

I could understand their reason to want price cuts the 1st time but now this is ridculous. The sales of the 3 consoles are pretty good at this point. There will not be any price cuts until late 2010 or maybe early next year.


Activision = failed bully

What the industry needs to improve its health are better games. Software sells hardware.

What Australia needs are better Australians!

Perhaps, but the deluge of Kiwis sure as hell isn't helping :P

Kiwis are the best part of Australia.


Activision is really getting better at being arrogant aren't they?

As Morhaime eyes market opportunities from motion control innovations

Activision-Blizzard insists that the game industry can still grow despite the global economic gloom – just as long as the market sees more hardware price cuts.

Speaking at Activision-Blizzard’s earnings call, Blizzard president Michael Morhaime said that the more affordable consoles were key to improving the industry’s health.

“If you look at consoles, I think you are going to need to see hardware price declines given the economic uncertainties that we have,” he said.

Morhaime added that game studios need to take advantage of the potential presented in both Sony and Microsoft’s motion controllers.

“You are going to need to see product innovations,” he said. “And as you look at some of the new user interfaces that are coming out, I think those are certainly going to deliver some interesting product innovation.”


We only want to focus on developing on PS3 and Xbox360. Though we feel it doesn't have the install base of the PS2. So we want the a price cut to balance off our high internal budget games to sell it a bigger market.

Squilliam: On Vgcharts its a commonly accepted practice to twist the bounds of plausibility in order to support your argument or agenda so I think its pretty cool that this gives me the precedent to say whatever I damn well please.

didn't they say this lat summer already?

anyways... MW price up , consoles down.... how logical....


Not this shit again. Didn't they made a billion from MW2 and they still not happy. How about lowing the cost of the games. Besides it don't cost them much to make a COD game every year. They are getting too greedy now.

lol, the guys who can't make a profit after selling 15 mln copies of one game are trying to tell other how to run their business...ironic.
