Gamers around the world are breathing a collective sigh of relief as it is announced: Activision has little interest in taking Call of Duty to Hollywood. The reason is a reassuring one - and nothing to do with not finding "the right partner", "the right story" or even "the right setting".
His reasoning? "Movies based on video games rarely please devoted fans," says the NYT, and Kotick (and Activision as a whole, presumably), is concerned that a poorly-translated, poorly-received adaptation could taint the incredibly powerful Call of Duty brand.
I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
