People are crazy. 
Also, Ryan was right in that one podcast a couple months ago. Dude's got a messed up looking head.

I would assume Jobs gets mad at anything in life he doesn't have direct control over.

No news is, in my opinion, better than old and irrelevant news.

Why were they that scared of Jobs?

#57 Posted by Puck (51 posts) -

Microsoft bought Bungie for 30 million dollars and every Halo games since #2 has set sales records on release - it's a billion dollar franchise.    The only acquisition that even comes close to that is EA buying Maxis right before the Sims got big.
Oh, and Steve Jobs, while a legendary tech visionary, also happens to be a bit of a douche bag.

That jaw-line is impeccable

@august:  For a pretty basic reason. Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.

Jobs is a hypocrite.

Truth. So much news clutter on Giant Bomb now.

Someone was a little peeved about a decade ago...  This is news now? 
I am so confused.

2nd paragraph is key.

Non-news stories! A company undercuts direct competitor B company, of course CEO of B company was pissed.

i cant imagine caring if i made my biggest rival angry, if i was Steve Ballmer i would imagine my reply to be something along the lines of "cool story bro, KTHNXBAI"

You know what? I'm being harsh. This is still pretty weak, but it happens.

id rather hear more weird industry insider type news than that the graphics on level 3 for the next cod were tightened up or someshit.

That was disappointing.  I was expecting at least a picture of Jobs' face all messed up from anger.  That one just looks like he spotted a fat lady wearing small, very tight clothes

Steve Jobs got angry about Microsoft a few years ago. 
The Giant Bomb community gets angry at Giant Bomb right now. 
Why can't we all just be friends?

#74 Posted by afrofools (1390 posts) -

Ballmer probably did call Kotick, but to arrange DLC exclusivity.

#75 Edited by MrKlorox (11142 posts) -

Uh... you might call your ex girlfriend's new fling in a bout of rage just after she leaves you for him... that's maybe a little normalish. But calling her NEXT boyfriend after she leaves the other one many years later is pretty deep into stalker territory.
Looks like Jobs should be looking into grabbing up GSC Gameworld.

This explains the whole Sony situation, over compensation, man.

Oh buuuuuurn!  SSully told you with his quick, sharp wit he got on the playground!/where he watched the movie "Borat" at the age of 7!  Yeah, you feel owned Brad Nicholson?  What now? "
I am not talking about Brad Nicholson, i am talking about Stevie boy. He is a immature business man, and this article, although old news, emphasizes that.   Maybe you need to chill out a bit? "
Oh, holy fucking shit!  The "chill pill" trump card!  Oh...oh OH, retard can't prove he's not retarded, tells everyone making fun of him to "chillax a bit bro".  Man, everyone who knows that it's "an immature" not "a immature" and everyone who is older than 8 enough to not use a "NAWHHT" joke are on the ropes now! "
I'm starting to hate this community now too...  As for the article, we could do without Brad... "
Let me email Fries and tell him to calm you lot down about the whole thing...

Steve Jobs. Pfft. He'd be nothing if he didn't have Steve Wozniak at the beginning. Does anyone take more credit for doing less than nothing than Jobs?

You just need to open your wallet Steve ... money talks (whereas you just talk bull).

#85 Posted by TheJuda (33 posts) -

wow...sure are a lot of dickheads in the comments.  Slow week hur hur hur old news hur hur hur.  If you're gonna be an idiot in the comments, at least try to be somewhat original.

"Steve Jobs Was Not  Angry About Microsoft's Bungie Acquisition" would have been news. It was pretty obvious from the moment it happened that the people at Apple would not have been happy. Hell, im STILL angry about it, and i dont even have a Mac!

Oh, I get it now. 
Some dude said that some other dude was a little peeved in a recent interview. 
Thanks for clearing that up, this is totally news.
#93 Posted by ratzombie (171 posts) -
@TheGremp: Well, I found it interesting, and I'm sure others will as well. You have to keep in mind that this is Giant Bomb, not the New York Times. The news that is posted here does not need to be hard-hitting news.
#94 Posted by Skydude252 (36 posts) -

I think I would be pretty bitter too.  Losing Halo to arch-rivals microsoft had to be a big blow.
