Kotick on SWOTR Economics

An interview with Bobby Kotick mentioned here last night contains a bit we didn't notice at first, as GamesIndustry.biz (registration required) notes the Activision CEO opines on the business model of Star Wars: The Old Republic, when asked about the possible impact of the upcoming MMORPG on World of Warcraft. "Lucas is going to be the principal beneficiary of the success of Star Wars," Kotick said. "We've been in business with Lucas for a long time and the economics will always accrue to the benefit of Lucas, so I don't really understand how the economics work for Electronic Arts."

Also, I might catch flak, but more than once I found myself saying "wow... that's a little... sexist..." with the story. Two or three major NPCs and a minor one basically have harems and kept women and shit. One, maybe even two would have been unremarkable, but when you have the major enemy being a sleazy "lady's man", the first major NPC ally having a kept woman, a quest goal minor NPC having refugee women that he's basically keeping captive as a harem, and a second major NPC ally having literally a harem of admirers (all of these in the first 10 hours mind you), my creepy meter started going off. Then it just felt juvenile.

Man up, Nancy.
