    I don`t like this. Look what Activision did to SOF. What good games did Activision do lately anyway?

    I for one rather see lots of small companies developing software games rather than the opposite. More chances of innovative games and software this way.
    More competition = better value for money.
    Look at Crytek or Rockstar, small companies yet some of the best titles ever seen.
    Mergers to me is a very very bad thing unless the companies merging work both within their own merits and not that of one companies. Lets face it that doesn't happen in the real world.

    I give it the thumbs down !!!!!!

    Tiggs luvs you all :banana:

    This could be a bad thing or nothing at all:

    Bad - If Activision dominates and throws out Blizzard
    Good - Both are technically the same company but each company is allowed to remain separate, keeping the structure they've always had.

    If they plan on just being a super publisher then I guess it's a good thing. Blizzard I don't see taking to being what they have to work on and, particularly, when they have to have things ready for release.

    Vivendi owns 52% of the stock, so they have the ultimate control.
    Vivendi handed over their games division to Activision and then agreed to purchase a **** load of activision stock in return.
    In this way they remain two seperate entities

    This is not good. Blizzard could always be counted upon to put out absolutely top-notch PC gaming entertainment. Man, the scourge of console-cancer could destroy PC-gaming as we know it if this crap continues.

    The bottom line? Console hardware is ALREADY obsolete and it will be years before new consoles are released. If the best developers are forced to make games compatible with the Crapbox 360 or POS3, the technical advantages of the PC will be negated by the necessity to make games compatible with all platforms. God, I hate consoles......
