B - We want out.
A - No way.
B - We'll make D2 suck.
A - Sure you will...
B - Told you so. Your move.
A - Still sold good enough, we'll just force micro-transactions now.
B - Why have you forsaken us gaming gods?
A - Not enough profits, more profits!
B - Everyone, I unfortunately think it's time for plan C...
A - You guys got your D2 year 2 DLC ready?
B - Yup, and we're Counting down to the death of the only Character worth Coming back to D2 for.
A - You wouldn't... You couldn't...
B - Oh we would...
A - OMG! All this time... You finally did it. You maniacs! You killed him! Damn you! Damn you all to hell!
B - Here's the paperwork. Call us when it's done.
That $100 mil Bungie just signed on for recently probably helped pay off any debts and with the state of Activisions overall business lately, they might as well just take the money.
Bungie clearly has plans of some sort going forward, good or bad.

XB - Did you know that the XB1 was designed to be a perfect multimedia device? Where none shared, where everyone would use Kinect. It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire 360 catalogue was lost. Some believed we lacked the console gamer logic to describe the perfect system, but we believed that, as a community, console gamers define their reality through waiting and micro-transactions. The imperfect hardware was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the XB1 was redesigned to this: the XB1S and XB1X, the peak of console 4k capability.
PS - You're more attractive than I thought. I can see why they like you. - Who? - Not too bright though… You know why Cerny was hired to design the PS4? – Yes. – So, what do you think? Do you think you’re the One? – Honestly, we don’t know. - Do you know what that phrase means? It’s gamer lingo for know thyself. I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Being the One is a lot like being the PS3. No one needs tell you that you screwed up, you just know it, through and through, hardware to exclusives.
Nin - Ok, now I'm supposed to say, hmm, that's interesting, but...then you say...- But what? - But...you already know what I'm going to tell you. - I'm not the Wii. - Sorry tablet. You got the gimmick, but it looks like you're waiting for something. - What? - Your next life maybe, who knows? That's the way these things go... / Unfortunately no one can be told what the Wii U is. You have to experience it for yourself.
