    What do you guys think of this!

    Activision, Viveldi Games, and Blizzard are merging into one company for a net worth of over $18.4 billion, and with a likely revenue of $3 billion a year in video games.

    This is REAL huge, just for the sheer amount of game franchises involved in this.

    Call of Duty, Warcraft, WoW, Tony Hawk, Guitar Hero, F.E.A.R; all have access to the others resources, all are under one roof, one developer, and what makes it better is that it's still a publicly traded company.

    This is HUGE.

    I will never forgive Vivendi for what it did to Crash Bandicoot and Spyro. Therefor, I do not approve.

    Hey, whatever gives developers access to more funds with which to innovate is fine by me.

    As long as they do innovate, that is...
