Sony’s response to Activision. |

FleaKitten wrote earlier, Activision threatened they would quit supporting the Playstation platform and Sony’ spokesman Patrick Seybold has responded to the claims;

“PlayStation has tremendous momentum coming out of E3, and we are seeing positive growth with more than 350 titles slated to hit across all our platforms, including many anticipated games from our publishing partners. We enjoy healthy business relationships with and greatly value our publishing partners and are working closely with them to deliver the best entertainment experience.”

There’s no doubt Sony has an impressive gaming lineup coming out but losing some Activision title would have a big impact. To be honest I think this threat has as much substance as the FOTA threat to quit F1 and that means no so much..

    That’s the business-mature (yet boring) way to respond to a verbal attack: don’t let it get under your skin, downplay the attack, and stress the positive constructive future.

    Most would assume that Sony plans to drop the PS3 price this fall when the slimline unit is ready, they just don’t tell people their plans ahead of time.

    PS3’s sales rank among all home consoles for various publishers in their last full reported year (in some cases the calendar year 2008, in others March 2008-March 2009):

    Electronic Arts: #2
    Capcom: #1 (Capcom further projects PS3 to be their biggest seller next year too, and by a bigger margin..achievable with less support?)
    Konami: #1
    Take 2: #2
    Ubisoft: #1
    Activision: #4 (in the first quarter of 09 it popped up to #3, just behind Wii)

    hrmm there is an oddball in that list….

  • It’s funny… even the subpar HipHopGamer sees through these smoke grenades… If Activision dropped PS3, they’d lose MORE than 1/3 of ALL their next gen sales… like that’s gonna happen^^

  • I’m pretty sure Sony’s going to drop the price of the PS3 this year. I think they would have been dropped it but right now, incase Activision hasn’t noticed, Sony’s stuck between a strong yen and a global recession.

    LOL this is great Activision doesn’t even make good games. It would be a blessing if they would stop polluting the software overload with their games. I honestly think that PS3 is going in the right direction. Just the other day my good friend(PS3 owner) said his brother just traded in his 360 to get a PS3. I have also heard of a lot of other people looking into purchasing the system with in the next few weeks. So Activision need to stop F’ing around and worry about making a good game for once.
