@coryrx8:   Except he is, because once Call of Duty's popularity begins to wane, he'll retire and enjoy his life with the millions of dollars he made off of the people he screwed over.

I hate when people play Devil's Advocate, but even moreso when they don't fully understand either side.  Everything you've posted to "defend" Kotick is common knowledge or common sense.  Everyone on the opposing side understands these points and it doesn't change their opinion.  So what's the point in using them for this argument?  Sounds like your website either needs to be rethought, or some better writers.
 
Sorry, it's just... years of Garnett Lee on the1UP Show have made me truly despise bad devil's advocates.

@TheUnpopularGamer:   I'm pretty sure everyone understands that he's making smart, at least for the short-term, business decisions.  That said, these decisions are still uncaring, ruthless, and insensitive.  They are bad for the industry, game companies, and consumers.  Just because they are self-serving and money-making doesn't mean gamers should stop hating Bobby Kotick or the things he does.  I understand why he's a dick, but that doesn't mean that I have to like it.

Explaining why a  company does shitty things that annoy me and piss me off doesn't mean I'll suddenly become okay with them doing annoying and shitty things that piss me off.
 
I've always understood why they did the things they did, but there are other stores I can go to that won't do them, for whatever reason, so I'll take my patronage there and not deal with the hassle, e.g.  in a business sense, the shit Activision does makes a lot of sense.  However, I still fucking hate Activision's corporate policy, and most (if not all) of their games.

@Valkyr: Again, 8 million in 2 months is not a failure.  The Wii was released with less than perfect tech (both the SD and the fact that they released Wii Motion + later on), and it's one of the biggest success stories in the industry.  Just because you're not interested doesn't mean the tech is a failure.
 
And Kinect is selling well because kids, women, and casual gamers are interested in the concept.  Most of that 8 million is "casual gamers", not hardcore techies or nerds looking to hack it.  You people are really reaching now.

Also, I don't want to buy another damn console for a few more years.  I still haven't gotten around to picking up a PS3.

@Laketown:
What Zombrex twist was in Case West?

@Hailinel: That was the better ending, anyway.
 
I didn't really think there was any twist really...
