Honestly surprised I was the first to break this news… But still…
'Acti Blizz head Bobby Kotick’s said he may stop supporting Sony with software unless it drops PS3’s price.
“They have to cut the price, because if they don’t, the attach rates [the number of games each console owner buys] are likely to slow. If we are being realistic, we might have to stop supporting Sony,” he said.
Asked when Sony titles may be pulled, Kotick added: “When we look at 2010 and 2011, we might want to consider if we support the console — and the PSP [portable] too.”
“Games generate a better return on invested capital on the Xbox than on the PlayStation,” he said.
Kotick added that Acti Blizz paid $500 million to Sony in royalties and other goods last year, which “probably still worked out at 400 percent of the profit they made”.'
Good. Last Acti game I bought was Spiderman: Web Of Shadows. Now that they sold the rights of Brutal Legend through to EA I'm even happier so f*ck 'em!
Of course this is a big bluff on Kotick's side, he wants the price to drop so people can buy more PS3's and more copies of Acti Blizz games. I really hope Sony says 'Good, we don't want you any way' and Acti Blizz's sales drop. Self righteous little snot bags.
Oh and for people about to mention Guitar Hero or Call Of Duty… I hate FPS' and Rock Band blows Guitar Hero out of the waterJune 21, 2009 at 6:20 pm #28497shadeblackMember
meh! Sony won't drop the price because they know people are slowly but surely buying it.
it's part of their 10-year plan – and it works!June 21, 2009 at 6:24 pm #28500Doctor_RockMember
I don't know, I think Sony may drop the price about £50 or so… But with some of the great exclusives coming out this year if I didn't already own one I would be buying one!June 21, 2009 at 6:26 pm #28503
How much are PS3's atm anyway?June 21, 2009 at 7:37 pm #28509
Well…… I'm sorry, but if cod leaves the ps3 then i will be very angry.
Really, i think its just activsion not liking sony, i mean remember all the double points weekends on cod4 that xbox had a week early (i was told it was cos activision dont like sony) and so on….
Ps3s can be bought for £200, 80 gb, and that was just in store that i saw randomly (No looking around) an xbox from somewhere standard (this 1 purely for an average price on Game.co.uk) a premium console – 60gb harddrive is £170, + the elusive £40 for live to get online, ur payin £10 more for a 20gb smaller HDD, And will have 2 pay live in the future. confuses me 2 say the xbox is cheaper, its just a stereotypical view held by many against the ps3June 21, 2009 at 7:44 pm #28511
So we're saying the Ps3 is 'Actuly' Cheaper than the 360 with the cost of live etc…?June 21, 2009 at 7:48 pm #28513danny-boiiMember
well if cod leaves ps3 and becomes a great xbox exclusive (and pc…but meh) then i will be sooooo f***ing angry i might even get xbox to play cod…its awesome … obv keep ps3 hahaJune 21, 2009 at 7:48 pm #28514
Well….as far as i can see yes, ps3s are cheaper
I think before i support this state,ment, further research should be done, its just when you walk into some shops which sell ps3s at £400 with a game, ppl take that as an average price. I tend 2 look around before buying, so if ppl are ever on the net, pls have a look and try 2 find average/ cheap prices, and i think you'll find them comparitive with xboxs.June 21, 2009 at 7:49 pm #28516

Yh, it is an amazing game, and 2 make it 360 exclusive wud be very annoyingJune 21, 2009 at 7:53 pm #28518
If COD was a 360 exclusive then i dont know what i would do…June 21, 2009 at 8:47 pm #28524CoryAllenMember
i'd buy a 360. i can't not play cod lol. damn activision!June 21, 2009 at 11:06 pm #28537gamerbenMember
well mw2 is coming to ps3 anyway, but in the future if they did cut then i would buy the pc versionJune 21, 2009 at 11:31 pm #28539
Gd point, why are we worrying about this now… ps3 are definatly geting mw2 and if we dont get another cod then hopefully some other company will make a better one…
For example who makes/made Medal of Honour?June 21, 2009 at 11:33 pm #28540I773D33MABL3Member
PS3 works out at a lot cheaper as a complete package. I'm not sure what the current price range is for 360 extras is but I know when my friend got his console he forked out an extra couple of hundred Euro to get the HD drive, wireless card and charger packs for the controllers. PS3 comes with all that as standard, so I can live with the price being slightly higher.June 22, 2009 at 12:14 am #28543CoryAllenMember
agreed! ps3 is worth the price. it doesn't need a drop in price.
i never liked medal of honor. i don't think it could compete with cod
