Activison has gone suicidal
They are killing all their big names. Yes, even Guitar Hero.
- Less suicidal and more Too Dumb to Live. Reshuffling at the top has brought in business executives unfamiliar with the games industry, but very familiar with, say, the household goods industry, who then try to apply that business model to it. Acquiring very high profit Cash Cow Franchises and pressuring their developers to release them on an "annual or semi-annual basis" leads them to believe Nothing Can Stop Them Now, and they are not Industry Savvy enough to realize that they are driving those very franchises they now depend exclusively upon into the ground, while simultaneously driving away their top talent developers who are responsible for the quality of those franchises to begin with. Their language used when detailing their market plans are designed to placate their investors who do not know any better rather than focus on a sustainable model, which means that this could be a very drawn out and slow death.
Bobby Kotick is Azathoth
Think about it. Both are in positions of great power, both are nearly mindless and both seem to be blissfully unaware of the evil they cause.
- Nah, I wouldn't say that. At least you can't blame Azathoth for the trouble he makes.
Activision is a subsidiary of Pentex.
Fairly obvious really.
