Activision's Emperor, oops I mean CEO, wants to raise game prices

If there was any doubt that Activision has officially turned into the evil empire then I think the latest comments from CEO Bobby Kotick will surely cement your opinion on the company being entirely focused on making tons of money while they shaft consumers. 

During the Activision Conference Call when an analyst from Piper Jaffray brought up the issue of pricing Bobby Kotick replied that if given the chance he would actually raise prices for their products. For this to fully sink in and I’ll post the exact excerpt from the call:

Monster Hunter 3 Gets the Black Treatment on Wii

While most North American Gamers are bewildered by the hold that games like monster hunter have on fans across the ocean. There is no denying this release is special for another reason. Not only is Monster Hunter 3 making it's Nintendo Wii appearance, but it is also being bundled with yes a Kuro Black Wii. That we first previewed a few months back...... Did you hear that right?

For some time now we’ve been teased about a unique Disney project Warren Spector and his team at Junction Point is working on.

Kennedy along with stepping into the shoes of Steve Burnside for the Resident Evil: Code Veronica chapter.

An extended look at Dragon Ball's latest adventure on the Wii

While starting out strong the Dragon Ball games have become a bit stagnant of late. The first few games that appeared on the PS2 were solid as fans finally had a chance to take part in the massive battles they watched for years in the anime.  The subsequent sequels gave players more characters to play as but didn’t really do anything other new or unique in terms of gameplay. Some fans were even a bit letdown by the recent PS3/360 Dragon Ball game, Burst Limit, as it was yet another retread of what we’ve seen earlier in past installments.
