    I know it's trollbait but I'm really wondering if Kotick has actual fans regarding gamers.

    I never thought of it that way before, but he kinda is like the Bill Gates of gaming. The only difference is that we'll never see a decent product (Windows 7) come out of the whole mess. Next CoD will probably have real $$$ weapon upgrades instead of better features.

    I don't see anything interesting there. Hell if I was megarich I too would buy studios that make trash like Prototype just so I could shut them down and make them and their families starve.

    Any Sierra wasn't a "studio", it was a publisher.

    Hmm, subtle pro-EA propaganda? EA is more famous for its history of shutting down developers than Acti. This looks like an attempt to show that "the other guys are doing it too!"

    Well at least Activision seems to have been shutting down shitty studios instead of excellent ones.
