Activision; Stems WoW Losses; Diablo III Slips

Activision's financial reporting shows lower than expected sales, though profits beat estimates. Here's the money mumbo-jumbo: "Activision's fourth-quarter sales for the three months ended December 30 fell 6 percent to $2.4 billion. Analysts were expecting sales of $2.2 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Adjusted for the deferral of revenue from digital content, Activision posted a profit of $725 million, or 62 cents per share, up from $655 million or 53 cents a year ago. This beat Wall Street estimates of 56 cents a share, according to Thomson-Reuters I/B/E/S." This notes that the company "only" lost about 100,000 World of Warcraft subscribers for the quarter, a considerable improvement over the previous reporting period when they lost closer to 800k subscribers from the MMORPG. There's also a note on IncGamers from the company's post-earnings conference call, where Mike Morhaime announced Diablo III is now due in Q2 of this year, saying: "We have implemented changes which will greatly improve the game experience and final release will live up to the highest expectations. We expect launch to be a big opportunity for Blizzard. More details will be announced in the coming weeks."

Why piss in the soup and not just serve up the same soup with slightly better looking visuals.

Because they saw how well that worked out for them when they did it with Starcraft 2?
