Activision's Kotick: I'd Raise Game Prices Even More


Sponsored Links
259w ago - Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, the same guy who threatened to drop PS3 if Sony doesn't cut the price, is now seeking higher video game prices.

Kotick's response came after Mike Griffith answered analyst Tony Gikas' question on price points, as follows:

"And then on the second question, Tony, on the pricing, we've had for all of our launch titles in the back half of this year, some of which contain peripherals, as you point out, very strong retailer acceptance and support for all parts of our plan, including our merchandising plans, our marketing programs, and our price points."

Bobby Kotick then added, per SPoNG (linked above): "And Tony, you know if it was left to me, I would raise the prices even further."

Apparently the £99.99 retailers are listing for Tony Hawk Ride and the $149 you'll pay for the 'prestige' release of Modern Warfare 2 (there's no solid UK price yet) aren't enough.

Here is what I think (correct me if I'm wrong). Doesn't all of the map packs from COD:WAW look like final cut rejects. They are the maps that didn't make the final game, so now they use them as map pack to make easy money.

Thats what I was thinking, I reckon they are maps which were either in the game before or were rushed out.

Do they really think, they will make much more money? they will just lower the request for the Games, since the price is too high.

And there target group are most likely young people too, which need the money for other things than some games they can finifsh in 5 Days and then have to spend again an unafortable amount of money

Codmw2 has a pretty interesting story and gameplay from the videos, but activision has ntn to do with that. They just bought the company that makes it and now publish their games... they really should just humble themselves.
