The eternally quotable Activision CEO Bobby Kotick recently spoke with The Financial Times about the disconnect between publishers and console online services, and presenting his idea of a preferable system set up with Television-connected PCs. Kotick is stating that the company is looking to “aggressively” support new set-top PC models coming in from Dell and HP, which offer direct connectivity to TVs.
“We’ve heard that 60% of (Microsoft’s) subscribers are principally on Live because of Call of Duty,” Kotick said. “We don’t really participate financially in that income stream. We would really like to be able to provide much more value to those millions of players playing on Live, but it’s not our network.”
