Is it appropriate to say K/O-rea?

Please. Let. Windows 10. Die.

The only thing I hate is their draconian update. This thread is a perfect reason why. Besides that, I think Windows 10 is one of Microsoft's best operating systems to date. I've only experienced one BSOD, and that was because my RAM blew up.
So... Windows 10 killed your RAM?

The plot thickens!

I think this is only slightly worse than the NMS marketing debacle.

It's activision! They're "remaster" it (ie do nothing) and rerelease it for what ever future movie in a few years...at full price!


If it was Bethesda it would be "reimagined" as a FPS with guns.

Being a shareholder of Activision Blizzard affords me the ability to see what's going on with the company in real time. This Form 4 filing by Mike Morhaime appeared on January 4th. According to the report, it looks like Mike exercised his option to dispose of 31,879 shares of ATVI for $139,999 and another disposal of 34,787 shares of ATVI for $178,878 for a combined cashout of $318,877. I wonder if he's getting ready to retire from Blizzard, like many of his colleagues have.

Note the Transaction Codes. According to the SEC:

F - Payment of exercise price or tax liability using portion of securities received from the company
G - Gift of securities by or to the insider

----

More news and information from Dow Jones:

Cowen Sees Hard Road Ahead for Activision -- Market Talk
ó 1:31 PM ET 01/04/2017

Cowen now thinks Activision Blizzard's ( ATVI ) latest "Call of Duty" video game has sold even fewer units than it originally projected, even though the shooter was November's top-selling title in the US, according to NPD. Also, Cowen no longer assumes ATVI's Blizzard unit will release a new game in FY17 due to a lack of announcements at its annual fan convention in November or since then. "While the stock is likely to confront an earnings overhang in the immediate term, we think a better outlook for FY18 will eventually get shares moving higher again," Cowen says. It cuts its FY17 EPS estimate for ATVI by 16% to $1.82. ATVI gains 1.1% to $37.05; shares are down more than 15% since the company reported earnings Nov. 3.

Not sure what but it's like Mike is retiring, or he is selling his shares before the stock tumbles further. I've seen ATVI get hit hard in recent weeks and months. I bought my position at $44.92 and since has seen it dropped 15.54% to $37.94. Unacceptable!

One of the many things that makes the original trilogy so superior to new crap like TFA

I think having a strong female soon-to-be Jedi protagonist was a superior move.

The NES did it, though, emerging from the dust of a bunch of fallen competitors. The Atari did it amidst those competitors. Which is good and all, but it did contribute to the crash of 83 (which was caused by a lot more than just "bad games.")

Absolutely. I think it's time for another video game crash. There's too much garbage now. Too much clutter of low-quality, broken titles that are exacerbated by incomplete games thanks in part to season passes, which cost nearly as much as the game itself. In other words, publishers don't take their video game consumers seriously. We're just cows they can financially milk.

I wonder if it's an apology for the crappy AssCreed movie.

I don't know. Haven't seen it; don't care.

Though true that they were in the back half, it was still more competition than anything today. And they're all considered the second generation of video games, along with the Fairchild, which came out a year prior, and the Odyssey, which was a year after.

The NES released to no competition. Those systems were all off shelves by then.

And, today, systems compete with two other products. The 2600 competed with at least 3.

I'm not referring to the original launch NES, I'm referring to the 4th generation days when Nintendo was the dominant console. That was when Commodore CDTV, Neo Geo, Philips CD-i, Genesis, Super NES, and TurboGrafx-16 were all competing for my gaming dollars. That's what I meant by "I remember when Atari was the Nintendo of gaming." There was competition in early 80's, but Atari dominated the market.

Hope this clarifies what I meant.

Those didn't come till later, originally you had Atari 2600 and a Sears knockoff clone call tele-games.

1977 - 1982 Atari 2600
1980 - 1984 Intellivision
1982 - 1994 Commodore
1982 - 1985 ColecoVision

You're right in the sense that Commodore and ColecoVision appeared towards the end of Atari's life cycle (although they still competed). However, Intellivision was a strong competitor due to the two years it directly competed with the Atari 2600. There were tv commercials from Intellivision showing how superior the Intellivision was to the Atari 2600; which was evident.

There was competition: Intellivision, Commodore, and ColecoVision. Specifically, Intellivision was a serious competitor.

I remember when Atari was the Nintendo of gaming. Everyone and their dog had an Atari 2600. I personally liked the Atari 400 more due to better graphics and the ability to write code. Ah, Memories...
