Maybe Bobby is starting to get a little worried about the competition.

Or maybe he was just being a little cocky to see what he could get away with at E3 :lol:

To be fair, I wouldn't let that guy in anywhere. He's creepy as f**k and twice as irritating.

She could've at least grabbed a goody-bag for him. I'll wager Bobby's looking for a new PA... :wink:

Some people say Bobby Kotick's 2 faced but I say NO!
Afterall, if he was then why does he always wear the ugly one?

Bobby Kotick. The love child of Tony Blair and Napolean Dynamite. Grade A asshole to boot.

I would love to know what the actual response was behind closed doors. Instead of the watered down 'no' that was given to the female PA, I want a word for word press release on this, CVG.

I have the misfortune of working with execs and I tell you, I can almost hear him dismissively waving his PA over expecting nothing but a yes. I don't envy the person one bit.

I had no idea what Kotick actually looked like until now, no wonder people think he's evil.

As if there gonna let the only competition to the FPS crown come and play the game. I know its a little late to start copying sh*t now, but even so, it takes the p*ss really. I bet Kotick knew they'd say no anyway, he was probably just trying to wind them up.

" NO SOUP FOR YOU"

thank you EA for everything you are doing for battlefield 3, it really does seem like Activision is quaking in their boots now, and although i'd love to see it kill CoD, i'm happier for the snotty kids to stay with CoD and not come ruin the BF experience
oh p.s could we have more bagging CoD in BF3?

He's one of the big CEO's that's holding back the world. Next to Steve Jobs the guy single handedly would have us playing on last generation technology if he had his way. Too much business guy, not enough gamer.

If I was EA I would have let him see it. Then if there were any good ideas in MW3 claim that he stole them from your presentation.
