well this could be big.

Activison has proven time and time again to be able to make money, though I don't know if I actually trust their for sight all the time.

Vivendi on the other hand has always delived an awsome product granted with some of the longest delays I've ever seen.

They both make tons of money and the combination of the 2 makes a software giant. The only thing I don't understand is why they really needed to merge and with activision in charge, will they pressure Vivendi developers to rush games.

"Activision Blizzard" is a really bad name. Being the oldest third party developer/publisher, it's a shame to see their name change like that.

I agree on the name. Vivendi kinda sucks, and Activision is awesome. They should just call themselves Activision.

I think while the name doesn't really roll off the tongue it makes sense. Both names are so well known at this point that company officially surely wouldn't want to drop either of them.
