Kotick on Bungie & Indies

Computer and Video Games quotes Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, who has made another of his head-scratching statements about the game industry. Presumably chuffed over Activision's ten-year deal with Bungie, Mr. Kotick calls Bungie "probably the last remaining high quality independent developer." CVG provides a brief list of the indies that one would deduce he does not think are high-quality: "Valve, Epic, Ninja Theory, Level-5, Insomniac, Foundation 9, Gearbox, Sucker Punch, Rebellion, and Terminal Reality." He also suggests that Activision alone has the publishing chops to match up with Bungie, saying of their publisher hunt: "But as they started to go and look at the obvious candidates, they realised that no company other than Activision had the skills that they needed to be successful for the vision of that product." Thanks joao.

Did you see them complaining about how they're not sure they are going to sell enough to stay afloat?

You asked for buzz, not complaints about sales numbers. There has been a lot of it on Blues, most of it positive (A rarity for these boards). Did you take a look at Orion Prelude? It looks amazing (a given sincve it uses the updated Source engine).
