And that is why Kotick is and always will be the biggest *bleep*ing tool in the industry. *bleep* you and your jewfro hairstyle Kotick. Outright ignoring that it wasn't a lack of innovation that cost the guitar hero games, but the fact that we consumers got them shoved down our throats until we stopped buying them. Give a developer time to innovate and they just might you moron.

Kotick also stresses that the Guitar Hero franchise was ultimately shelved not because the publisher had at that point oversaturated the market with over a dozen titles, but instead over a lack of innovation "in a way that was appealing to audiences."
Yeah, the market was oversaturated with games that didn't innovate.

How many games did they make in a 4 or 5 year span? 10? 20? That wasn't oversaturation at all!

He should enter into a relationship with David Rutter and combine forces to ruin the future of gaming for one and all.

Why do people get surprised when for-profit businesses act like for-profit businesses?

Hell yeah! Anarchy! Let's sign petitions and stuff to make everyone change their minds!

Interestingly he has no desire to see any sort of motion picture adaptation for the Call of Duty franchise, being well aware that films based on video games run the great risk of alienating fans at best, and at worst actually harm the brand itself.
Thank Christ. That'll leave room for Hollywood to work on some original stuff... or another gritty remake of a children's fairy tale. Whichever.
