Kotick to Be Visited by Three Ghosts
Bobby Kotick made the news again after his speech to a group of bankers about the game industry was mysteriously leaked to the public, presumably by one of the many reporters who attended the event.
"The goal I had when I brought a lot of the packaged goods folks into Activision was to take all the fun out of making video games," Kotick said. "Fun is not what games are about. Fun has no place in this industry. But this isn't really the kind of stuff that we should be talking about in front of gamers; let's just keep this between you and me. It wouldn't do us any good to have them [gamers] catch on."
Later that evening, a reliable source told us that he saw Mr. Kotick telling an employee: "No, Mr. Cratchit! You may not have Christmas off to spend with your family."
