Activision are idiots? PS2/PS3 accounts for 40% of all gaming revenue

Forums - Sales Discussion - Activision are idiots? PS2/PS3 accounts for 40% of all gaming revenue

@RoI : yeah, I didn't say I loved my 360, and you disagree both with the facts (90+ 360 exclusive full games on meta = zero is a fact you can check) and with my opinions, so clearly I'm screwed.

I'm starting to be really afraid now.

Sorry if I hurt your precious console and your feelings, I just happen to prefer my PS3.

But you're right, people here know probably more about Kotick and Activision than professionals like Bioware who work in the industry. I should have known more.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I particularly enjoyed how leo-j claims that Activision would lose from profits from selling GH songs or from movie-based games like Spiderman

I guess the music industry does not get a cut of those songs sold and I'm sure Activision doesn't have to pay royalties for a game that could end up not selling on PS3

The music and movie industry are such nice people!



What are you looking at, nerd?

lol I haven't claimed anything I just posted an article from playstationlifestyle, none of that is me

@RoI : I don't care with your posts either (actually people care enough about my posts to talk to me constantly, now I feel I must say something true since people are trying so hard). The answer is simply because I loved Mario 64. I think it's one of the greatest games ever... What else ?



From what I see ...

The PS2 and PS3 account for 17% of Activision-Blizzard's total revenue in 2008, by the end of 2010 the PS2 portion of that revenue will fall to (essentially) 0%, which means that for Sony's consoles to retain their current share of Activision Blizzard's total revenue the PS3 will have to double its sales of Activision Blizzard software over the next 2 years. When you factor in development costs and how the PS2 sales would be mostly games that were released in previous years (and almost all revenue generated would be profit) the PS3 will have to more than double its current sales of Activision Blizzard software to maintain their share of total profit.

Now, how many people think that Sony will be able to sell enough hardware to boost Activision Blizzard's sales to over double its current level by the end of 2010 unless they reduce the price of the console immediately? With the exception of a few fanboys I don't expect anyone does ...

What this means is that Activision Blizzard's threat is actually fairly legitimate being that the development costs associated with porting XBox 360 games to the PS3 are probably higher than the costs associated with creating (lower budget) Wii games which could generate greater profits for Activision Blizzard; and the consequence of dropping Sony with how unimportant the PS2 is becomming, and the PS3 and PSP already are, is pretty minimal.

Cool, I also love Super Mario 64. What did you like the most about this game?

@RoI : you said you didn't care about my posts. I'll talk about Mario64 with someone else I guess.

Or did you change your mind ?

It's offtopic anyway.

I said that I don't care for this one particular post I quoted, but your username got me interested.

It doesn't really matter if it's off topic, this thread is pretty much done and the topic has also been discussed previously. So why do you love Super Mario 64?
