Activision Blizzard CEO and president Bobby Kotick has said that the company may have to stop supporting all Sony platforms in the future unless Sony is able to regain a position of power in the market.
“They have to cut the price, because if they don’t, the attach rates are likely to slow”, Kotick continued. "If we are being realistic, we might have to stop supporting Sony…When we look at 2010 and 2011, we might want to consider if we support the console - and the PSP [portable] too."
A public statement issued by Sony refutes these claims however and says that the PlayStation 3 is doing phenomenally well, with increasing sales and a glut of titles, many of which are exclusive.
“We enjoy healthy business relationships with and greatly value our publishing partners and are working closely with them to deliver the best entertainment experience,”.
Whats your take on this?
Are they eventually going to drop the price?
Is the coming of PS3 slim to affect the overall price and quality?
I say that ANYONE out there who believes that Activision will actually even seriously think to ACT on this crap is a crazy person! Around 24 million PS3 users, that’s a LOT of sales you just don’t wana ditch. Besides this, Sony can always increase the royalty for their PS2 games ANNDD, they also have got the rights of Spiderman and other BIG names plus many of the artists Activision use for their guitar hero games. This is just a publicity stunt and nothing else. That’s it!
I own both the consoles and I hate god damn fanboys who want to see Sony destroyed or the Sony fans who want to see M$ destroyed or even Nintendo haters. I mean what the hell is wrong with people? COMPETITION DRIVES EVERYTHING! WE NEED COMPETITION.
Since I own both the next-gen consoles, this is my take on them
Xbox360 is more like a Suzuki while Sony being the Toyota. PS3 is expensive yes but it’s far superior to Xbox360 in many ways. I believe it is actually CHEAPER than Xbox360 because it comes with everything and I mean almost everything! It’s like Mehran owners saying Corolla is a crappy car because it’s expensive. There really is very little to compare here. Xbox is a gaming console and PS3 is an all-in-one entertainment unit. It’s upto the user to make the decisions. If you wana play games get an Xbox360 but if you want to have a complete entertainment unit that does everything, get a PS3. It’s simple.
