Foot in Mouth

This is a small rant about Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision.

What prompted this was a comment he made a few weeks ago directed towards Sony. He said basically “If the price of the PS3 doesn't come down, we may have to stop making games for it.” I can understand the emotion behind it – I still think the PS3 is overpriced (even though I bought one.. * Sigh *). But just spouting it off in public just seems in poor taste.

This is the same guy who, in an interview, said that Guitar Hero World Tour was the first game where a whole band could play. The interviewer call him on it by saying “I though that was Rock Band.” Kotick hemmed and hawed for a few seconds then went back into his spiel.

He has a history of over exaggeration, lying or just crass behavior.

Back to strumming that guitar and holding the mic high.

Games played since last post:
Rock Band 2 (360)
Prototype (PS3)
