But perhaps not unjustified.Inan interview with the Wall Street Journalin June, Activision CEO Bobby Kotickstatedthat he would have"Call of Duty be an online subscription service tomorrow%26rdquo; if he could. %26ldquo;I think our audiences are clamoring for it.%26rdquo; Er, sure, we're clamoring for new content, maybe... but probably not to give you more money to play a game we already own.
