    Now ATVI is good buy!

    Quarter 3 is going to get a bit better with anticipating games like Call of Duty.

    Diablo 3 real money auction is going to make more money as more players decide to sell more items.

    Wow subscription is down because of Diablo 3. People switched games.

    • D3 was a letdown. WoW subs are down do to burnout/waning interest.

      COD does bring in the cash, but sales slip as time goes on.

      I would like this better at 9. Better profit taking later on.

        I don't think Kotick would be adverse to a lower stock price. I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't scheming his own little management takeover, perhaps with the help of an equity management or hedge firm. Vivendi probably wants to avoid this because the sales bargaining power is diminished without a set of competitors to bid against each other.

        Nonetheless, either way, Kotick can't lose. Stock goes up and he achieves 500 million gross profit, per annum...he's in line for up to nearly 120 million in compensation over the next few years. If the stock price goes down, he's in a better position to take over the company.
