Bobby Kotick Hailed as Great Comedian

Activision CEO, Bobby Kotick, made an off-color joke last week about wanting to charge even more for games. This came at a time when the economy is doing poorly, and gamers are buying less games due to financial concerns. PR representatives who were expecting fallout over the joke were pleasantly surprised to find that fans hadn't organized any 'company crippling' boycotts or called for the head of any overpaid loudmouth executives.

"Oh, I'm not mad at all, after last night's show now I understand why they pay CEOs so much. You really can't put a price tag on comedy that good. I'd gladly pay 20-30% more for Activision games to help keep Mr. Kotick's comedy career alive," said one independently wealthy gamer.

A DVD of Kotick's standup tour, Bobby Kotick: I Swim in Your Money, will be available in October for £55 (92$), unless it's delayed until 2010 to avoid conflicting with the Modern Warfare 2 release date.
