Activision CEO Bobby Kotick Wants To Take The Fun Out Of Making Videogames…

leave a comment »

In perhaps one of the most putridly arrogant displays of corporate management gone terribly awry, CEO of Activision Bobby Kotick recent told folk at a German conference that he intends to ‘focus his company on profit and nothing else’.

In addition to this, the grinning executive went on to say that he has been instilling a culture of “thrift” by taking on staff that will “take all the fun out of making videogames”.

According to dear old Bob, an atmosphere of “skepticism, pessimism and fear amongst his workers” represents “mission accomplished”.

This was in addition to a new rendering technology showcased by Mr. Kotick which apparently allows for better mouth rendering on in-game models and lip synching.

It would be nice if this technology could be adapted to render his mouth shut.
