Activision will be one of the few companies that will still be in profit year after year. Until next gen :lol:. I bet they haven't made a new engine, which means they'll fall :lol:

Activision amaze me with how they manage to pull out blockbuster franchises out of nowhere! Case in point Skylanders! A lot of people may not like them as a publisher but they seem to know how to run their business!

They got lucky with the explosion MW created and then just milked that. Skylanders is impressive marketing though, good idea with heavy money making ability. They've handled that well I'll give them that.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

I do think the COD4 phenomenon had a degree of luck to it, they just happended to hit on an extremely appealing and durable multiplayer mechanic. But I'll give em their dues on Skylanders and earlier Guitar Hero and WOW, I wouldn't mind been a shareholder.
