Gaming CEO Still a Douche

In the FT interview, Kotick lamented the fact that despite the strong sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the publisher saw no additional revenue from the game’s continuing popularity on console online environments like Xbox Live. “We’ve heard that 60 per cent of [Microsoft’s] subscribers are principally on Live because of Call of Duty,” Kotick told FT. “We don’t really participate financially in that income stream. We would really like to be able to provide much more value to those millions of players playing on Live, but it’s not our network.”

Or, to translate – “since people are still playing MW:2 after purchasing it for $60, months after it’s release, we feel that we are not making enough money off it.  Perhaps it would be possible for people to also have to pay a monthly fee to continue to play the game they bought months ago for $60.  Surely, the future of gaming will be one of lolipops and rainbows.  But only for me, I will fucking consume the life essence of the lamprey-like adherents of my company’s franchises.  All hail the Great Deep One.”

Also, I skimmed some of the comments to this post  at Gamespot which I am reproducing for your viewing pleasure:

1) wat a *****

2) if you look in a dictionary for words like “pr**k, mo*******er, retard douche bag etc..” you’ll see a picture of this guy next ot the word

3) When I first read the title I was like “oooohhh” but after reading this article I was like “Damn you to hell Ko’tick’, damn you.”

4) no money from online? What about those two $15 map packs. People are lining up to cram money down this guys throat even with his companies slime ball tactics and here he is wanting to stuff his face with more. I say cut the money IV from this guy. I don’t know how you get your company to look worse than EA did a couple years ago, but these guys somehow managed it.
