Poor Sony PS3 nobody loves you...

Specifically Activision this time

Bobby Kotick, Activision boss went on the record with:

    “I'm getting concerned about Sony; the PlayStation 3 is losing a bit of momentum and they don't make it easy for me to support the platform. It's expensive to develop for the console, and the Wii and the Xbox are just selling better. Games generate a better return on invested capital on the Xbox than on the PlayStation,” he says.

No big deal really, Activision is only the world's third biggest publisher. Minor franchises like: Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, and Tony Hawk.

The Time Online has the full Story.

Spotted at Gizmodo and Kotaku.

But Activision won't stop supporting Sony. They may reduce their support, but they won't cancel it. But honestly, this comes from some suit who doesn't really know anything about game development.

It's a power play to get some breaks on the ridonkulous licensing fees Sony charges. This is part of the reason why Blu-Ray movies are so expensive.

I hate Sony too of course but I'm allowed since I deal with them on a whole other level. They're an enigma of greatness wrapped in stupidity and arrogance :)

a giant, mindless, conglomerate, corporate monster of which it's limbs are made up of mutually exclusive subsidiaries. Sure, it looks cool, but it has no idea what it's doing.

But like MS, they seem to have a vision (ignore industry standards, create proprietary tech and license it). Not so much mindless as narrow-sighted. Funny to think that Steve Jobs wanted Apple to be like them once!

and they are playground bullies. In trying to dominate the market and crush the competition, they end up screwing the customers. You would think they'd be humbled by their failures (too may to list though my current favorite is their innability to touch the iPod market) but they'll never learn.

Remember "walkman's"? If you didn't have the original yellow Sony sport walkman you weren't hip. Boy, those were the days eh Sony?

Hopefully they didn't spend all their effort and money on putting HD-DVD out of business, only to run afoul of slow adoption and a rough economy.

Oh wait– I hope they did.
