  • Daily Poll 151: Would you rather have Activision be bought out by Disney or Apple?

    Last Daily Poll was on Hollywood actors being in movies. Check it out here: https://www.exclusivelygames.com/for...in-video-games

    There have been rumors flying around that Activision is looking to sellout and the companies that net thinks they could sellout to would be either Apple or Disney. I consider Apple and Disney to be two of the most powerful brands on the planet. Activision is a massive presence in the gaming industry and how far they could extend their reach with Apple or Disney money scares me that this industry would become even more neutered and corporate than it already is. I'd rather that not happen but I'm not too confident that entertainment won't get homogenized as the cloud gets better.

    So the options are:

    The shittiest tech company buys the shittiest game publisher, or the shittiest hollywood studio buys the shittiest game publisher, thanks I pass on both of those accounts. Either way the end result is disaster.

      Assuming that one has to buy them out, I'd pick Disney, because at least then they could put some actual game developers in charge of it, instead of Apple who can't. I'd rather it just be left alone though. No one wins if Activision is bought, espeically Spyro and Crash fans.

          I doubt they will be bought out since the stock would grow with the people anticipating the purchase. With that being said, I could see another company buying Activision over Disney or Apple. Maybe Microsoft or
          Tencent.

              No one should buy them, they are bad enough like this, don't need Disney's garbage forced into it.

                  Activision is still around? Shit, I'd imagine I could buy them out for about 20 bucks, same as Namco or Atari.

                    Id literally trust actual honest to god Russian hackers over either of those 2 companies...though activision itself isn't any better.

                        And again I ask in return, what would you rather have for breakfast: a human turd that's been peed on by twenty AIDS patients, or a rhino turd with strange white specks on top that's also been infused with the smallpox virus?

                          Sony, probably the only company I trust to redeem them and has the financial ability to do so.
