Kotick is an idiot. Oh and they won't drop support unless they really want to hurt their company.



Seems all was takenc are of here. My only point was that PS3 was under-performing PS2 sales, and Activison only signaled out PS3/PSP development (of course, someday PS2 development has to end too)



@RoI : Well, I liked many things. The great diversity between levels, the races, the whole concept of stars, the colorful graphics, the boss battles... It oozed creativity and the gameplay was unmatched, like often with Nintendo games.

I liked the open world idea too, where you can really choose between tons of stars to try at any moment...

I totally agree. Super Mario 64 is one of the best games ever made and it still easily trumps everything that has been released on the PS3.



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

It trumped everything that was released on 360.

Only game for me that matches it is MGS4 on PS3, so I disagree with what you said.

Between MGS4 and Mario64 I don't know, maybe MGS4 is my favorite, but that's like apples and oranges. Only MY opinion.

So neither the 360 and PS3 have had any game release that surpasses a game from 1996. This is something to think about. Why didn't games get better with all those advancements in technology?

Here is the math for the percentage of each console

PS3 8.7%
PS2 10.2%
360 13%
Wii 14.7%
Handhelds 3.6%
MMORPGS 41%
PC 3.6%


also consoles only account for 46.5 percent of revenue. I think this threat is empty based on revenue seeing how it is right in the same area as the other consoles. We do not know the profit break down so it is possible that it hurts them to support PS3. However do you think Sony will just let them support PS2 and not PS3? (Thats a question seriously I dont know). Also do Activision and Vivendi share profits because if not this would mean Leo-j is technically right.

It's a 'bluff' to ask for a price cut. Kotick knows PS3 would sell a lot more at a lower price, so he just wants more millions for Actibliz.


Doh ? But that was clear for everybody from the very begining. Kotic wasen't even deniying it. He has been asking for price cut for several month (as some other publisher). Do you need analysts to "find out" that ?

Nobody here is believeing Acti will do it. People are just saying that 1) Activision is huge and Sony will badly suffer if that was really happening, 2) Kotic claims isen't as stupid as some might think, since Sony ACTUALLY need to cut the price or its market share will keep shrinking, ot a point where some might indeed start to seriously think about it.



RoI, create a new thread if you want, we'll debate about that, here it's offtopic.

If you want to make me say that gameplay is the most important thing, I'm clearly on your side.

Now there are games who have both great gameplay AND great tech, so I'm not a retro guy either.

I bought a PS3 not for the power of the cell, but because of great contents in term of gameplay for me...
