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

@Cryo : you say 'nobody here is believeing Acti will do it' : that's exactly the point, if we all agree it can't happen, it's just fantasy land discussing what would happen next...

I said that in my opinion no, Sony wouldn't suffer that much, since all they would loose would be guitar hero and call of duty, which, while being nice games, have comparable or even better competitors on PS3 (rockband and Killzone 2)

But in any case, if we all agree it won't happen, then somehow deciding the impact is pointless...

You have to take into account development costs too... this is revenue, not profit.

There are economies of scale obviously so profit only kicks in once a certain number of units are sold.... presumably this is hugher on the PS3 than any other platform.


Didn't they also pay $500 million in royalties to Sony? Which would drasticly reduce any profit.



PS3 is a money hole - 6 billion dollars wasted by sony all for the glory of last place.

Glad to see activision wake the **** up to the reality that the ps3 is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE to program for and the returns are miniscule if any at all.



Nice troll post.

Don't worry it's allowed here since it's against Sony.

He definitely doesn't have to worry as much as you. He's only bashing Sony while you are attacking the staff of this very website. That's not cool.



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

LoL. Where did I attack the staff ? Why should I even care about the staff ?

Once again I give facts (mostly from metacritic) and my opinions.

I find it funny that blatant troll posts like his are ok but mine are not (well in fact they are, I wasn't moderated, which I think is fair). Would there be some kind of bias here in the average vg user ?

Go on N4G or Neogaf, then come back and tell me VG is owned by Sony fans. Every fact I write here which is not favorable to MS, I have like 4-5 answers from angry fanboys.



Actually, most of the mods on this site are pro sony - look how many xbox users TORILLIAN has unfairly banned.

TORILLIAN is a double-standard prone, one man xbox hating & banning machine!

WORST MOD EVER!!!



They pretty much said that they would pull support from the PS3. I agree with them. Sony needs to drop the price real soon. When I mean soon, I mean 1st quarter of 2010. When 2010 comes around, they have no excuses to not drop the price. They should really think about how many third paty games they would lose if Activision actually goes through this decision. Its bad enough they lost all their best third party exclusives. Losing more, especially when need all the best exclusives they can get to make the gap between the 360 very close, would put them in a further third place rank in thr console war. Everyone knows they will finish third place but they also finish their knowing they came real close instead of losing by a blowout.
