Writing about things that i give a damn about

A few questions for Bobby Kotick

leave a comment »

Disclaimer:

– i know Valve usually has high prices for the games they distribute through their platform (Steam)

– the basic economic law of supply and demand unfortunately works most of the time.

but…

1. Why did Call of Duty 4 have a price of 49.99 Euros until recently, almost three years after release? It’s 24.99 now… after three years!!

2. Why does Call of Duty 6 (Modern Warfare 2) STILL have a price of 59.99 Euros looking at almost an year after release?

3. Do you really expect that your Resurgence and Stimulus package of several maps a few of them being remade from CoD4) will keep your profits high since you managed to scare away and fire some people that made the franchise great? (Jason West and Vince Zampella, but also Lead animator Mark Grisby FTW!),  lead environmental artist Chris Cherubin, lead animator John Paul Messerly, software engineer Rayme Vinson, programmer Jon Shiring and lead designer Mackey McCandlish).

I just can’t wait to see how Respawn Entertainment will rip you a new one!

4. You also do realise that Guitar Hero spinoffs and music games in general are not selling so hot as a few years back? You made a big mistake Bobby-boy, sacking those talented people that made the biggest selling game ever. You just killed the goose that lays the golden eggs 🙂

As a bonus, here is Sergeant Griggs’s rap, while you realise that Respawn Entertainment will be published by Electronic Arts 🙂 You really rolled snake-eye on this Intelligence check!

Oh, and good luck with two separate lawsuits from 30+ people , cometh 2011 😉
