Stop Hating Activision

Post by Shah2354 on Thu May 06, 2010 11:56 pm

Everyday it seems the same old news clogs the feeds of the major gaming sites. The continuing drama of Activision and Infinity Ward is guaranteed to be a headline on IGN. And promptly the comments section floods with hate, decrying Activision as Satan, not caring about gamers,and deserving to die. This should have died down weeks ago and its pissing me off.
People need to understand, Activision is a company, and by definition, companies are supposed to make money. Frankly, that's all they're supposed to care about. They release games not only to entertain, but to make money, which is used to make more games, and so on and so forth. With this in mind, think about it from Activision's perspective. What did you expect them to do? When you just made millions, and your tiny developer asks for "unpaid bonuses" are you going to believe them? No, you are a corporation focused on making money, you aren't going to go out of your way to give TWO people who have already been giving their paychecks millions more. Activision didn't go out of their way to fire these people out of the pure darkness of their hearts, Infinity Ward employees left because they wanted more money that they didn't get.
Its a simple business transaction. Both sides wanted money, and they disagreed. Stop hating on Activision, it was with their money that MW2 was even made. Infinity Ward is no martyr, they are the smaller party yes, but just as intent on making a profit.
This whole saga just needs to stop, it takes away from the actual games, and is devisive. If you like IW, great buy their games. If you happen to not like Activision that's fine too, don't buy their products. All I ask is for people to stop commenting about it, and for the gaming press to stop covering this old, unneccasary story. Jeezus.

Well, considering the legal dispute is still going on, I think it's important to cover it.

You clearly don't know the situation. Activision made promises that they never followed through with. Rather than giving West and Zampella the bonuses they were promised, they were terminated on false premises. Activision launched an investigation, took away West and Zampella's rights to privacy, and looked for anything they could use as grounds to terminate them so as to get out of paying them. Activision owes them much more, but I won't get into that. Read the 16-page complaint if you want more info.
