According to Leigh on the last day of E3 Bombcast: It cost Activision $775 million to rent out the Staples Center. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Someone send her to the loony bin. If I was Ryan at that moment, I would have told her to get out.

Out of Bobby Kotick's own pocket, no less.

  I'll be listening to this once its available to download. I'm kind of excited for all the crazy things Leigh may say.

That is million bucks. 775 to be exact.

Dudes, it cost at least 2K for a loaf of bread these days. Of course it cost that much.

God that was ridiculous. I can understand making a mistake at first, but she was then continually challenged and given multiple chances to correct herself but she just continued to look a fool.
Especially after repeating so many times "I'm a games journalist" "I'm in the business industry" "I work for Gamasutra" sheesh

I just love that they said "That's three-quarters of a BILLION dollars" and she still was cool with it.

#24 Posted by RE_Player1 (7948 posts) -

The recorded show is up and I just watched that little bit again. It was so epic, how she kept on saying 775 million for 7 minutes, how she rudely picks Ryan out when he says unregardless and she says irregardless is the correct word even though its not a word also, and how she kept on going on her Activision rant even after they proved her wrong.

775 Million bucks? That's like 10 Bison Dollars.

I'm getting scared of Giant Bomb and all its inside jokes. If it was your first time on here, you would think everyone is crazy ...

#34 Posted by Hadoken101 (1164 posts) -
@psyborg0815:  So true, someone would walk in here and be frightened by the fact that we think kid rock is the most authentic man alive, $775 million is a normal number for a show, and that everyone is WAY into diamonds. And that's just the last week ALONE.

I'm trying to come up with something witty, but failing to do so.

#36 Posted by OroJackson (688 posts) -

 At his current salary (15 million dollars) Bobby Kotick would have to work for 50 years to rent out the Staples Center >.>
#37 Posted by s7evn (1067 posts) -

I don't think it cost $775 million to build the staples center, let alone rent it :s. Oh well, alcohol makes people say some funny things.

Someone on Neogaf said the Staples center cost $375 million. They should have just bought it.

Man, when *I forget who* told her it was 7.75mil not 775mil I started laughing so hard. She shouldn't be allowed to drink Sparks next podcast.

@Killroycantkill:  Your thinking of Tilton...
But ATM that has to be one of the BEST podcasts on GB
#44 Posted by poser (570 posts) -

we need to make '$775 million' a trending topic on twitter.

@Vital:  It was uniquely entertaining despite the dangerous amounts of raw crazy that has materialized in the form of Leigh Alexander.

Yes, that was great.  Fun fact:  She was still claiming the $775m figure on Twitter even AFTER being corrected by Tilton.
