"...Activision's security has 'stormed' Infinity Ward's studio and IW heads Jason West and Vince Zampella have been fired for not including dedicated server support in the latest Call of Duty game..."
If only it was true
Seems a little heavy-handed to me. Surely better to do it quietly without all the fuss and bad publicity?
As I tweeted earlier;
Activision played BFBC2, after sitting in awe of the game for hours they then fired Infinity Ward bosses.
Just shame Robert Bowling hasn't gone as well, given all the bullsxxxx lies he told the Pc community about MW2........
Iraq enquiry? Maybe they blame MW2 for the war on terror.
lol Funniest thing heared today. Karma is a bitch, even though I don't blieve in it
Heared that was a possibility. Bowling has confessed, CNN reports
Exactly what I was thinking.
How the hell do companies get away with such low morals?
Money is the root of all evil............EA sets the standards others follow.
Just remembered something I saw recently:
Ive too much time on my hands today >.>
Breach and clear....lol
Except that it was probably Activision and their greedy DLC money grabbing ways who forced IW to drop DS in the first place.
It sounds to me like Activision is holding IW hostage and they're obviously not all too happy about that.
Hahaha. I've owned BC2 8hrs now and it's better imo so far.....
I really am curious to see what are the reasons behind this. But perhaps IW had too much success for their own good and Activision wants to take tighter control using legal loopholes in contracts.
Maybe those 2 were the pro PC guys at IW and now that they screwed the PC crowd over, but still had success. They thought that they didn't need them anymore. I'm pretty sure Bowling was Activision's guy at IW.
Whatever the reason, who cares??????
They are both to blame for ruining a game which could have become one of the best community based FPS games of all time, but they ignored the fundamental philosophy of 'community based' games.
I for one don't give a hoot if they fire the lot, they'll never make a game again that I will purchase (unless its a bargin basement sale).
Perhaps all the nade spam and noob tubes were too much and someone in Activision snapped?
thats what its all about.
