What does this mean for Blizzard's Mac support?
Hopefully it means improved support for the Mac.
And I hope they can get the Warcraft movie out sooner
As of right now if you go onto the world of warcraft forums for mac they have EXCELLENT service and quick replies. Would hate to see it go down the tubes but I dont see that happining.
You can't get much better than Blizzard's mac support. If anything, it will be worse.
lets hope not. i'm hoping that blizz keeps up the excellent work for macs still.
There are too many mergers in the gaming industry right now. BioWare/Pandemic just got bought by EA. We'll only have to companies left at this rate.
/slaps self on the head for selling his Activision stock.
i hope this doesn't affect the quality of the products and support blizzard has given us over the years.
Well, after reading a little bit more, I don't think we have much to worry about. Blizzard said everything will stay the same at their end, including their name. It seems as though Vivendi (Blizzard's parent company) did the actual merging, and they are using the name "Activision Blizzard" to simply capitalize on Blizzard's fame.
That's like saying "Microsoft Bungie".... ew.
Sadly, I don't trust Activision to not frack things up, even with the runaway success of WoW. There are a lot of idiots out there.
I hope that this will lead to some better Mac support from Activision.
Maybe now we can finally get the Chopper Command and River Raid support we've always needed.
The way to really look at this is vivendi buying activation. They will have a majority share and more bored members in the new company. Over all I doubt this will have any immediate effect on current blizzard games.
Vivendi Blows Chunks
Vivendi is the same group of Eurotrash (no offense to cool Europeans) that sold/merged Universal Studios to/with NBC... And I think they're the main reason we've seen NBC shows pulled from iTunes. All they give a crap about is gouging consumers while robbing artists.
I don't know if that was intentional but it made me laugh.
I don't think we'll see much of an impact to Blizzard with this merger.
I agree that in reality this probably won't change much, but in my heart there's a twinge of sadness. It seems like everything in the tech sector is moving towards a handful of large, ultra-powerful companies. It's capitalism i suppose.
Now MS just have to buy Yahoo, and Google Adobe and we'll be off again.
I agree. In a world with supercompanies like these, it would be very difficult for a new company to enter the gaming world and develop a game, as it will not have the resources the others will. So, we may end up having 2 or 3 supercompanies develop games, and that is never a good thing.
I can't wait to play some mac type games!
