E3 2011: Bobby Kotick Shut Down By EA

on June 9, 2011 6:00 PM

Despite coming off like a dick in the past, Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick has recently tried to soften his image with the gaming community. But some of that hard work has been undone (however effective it may have been) as Kotick recently tried to barge his way into the behind-closed-doors showing of Battlefield 3, the biggest competitor to Modern Warfare 3. Unsuprisingly, EA said no dice, which was probably a smart move on their part. Even if Kotick is trying to soften his image for the public, he still would have likely trash-talked the game to make Modern Warfare 3 look better in some kind of silly little PR stunt.

Daniel plans on either going to graduate school for an MFA, or more realistically, getting a day job, which he hopes is somehow involved in the gaming, comic book, or film industries.
