UPDATE: Activision responds to the Shafer slam

Activision has responded to Tim Shafer%26rsquo;s slam against Activision%26rsquo;s Bobby Kotick in the recent Eurogamer interview. Speaking toKotaku, Maryanne Lataif, senior vice president of corporate communications at Activision Blizzard, says %26ldquo;Tim Shafer%26rsquo;s comment that Bobby Kotick %26lsquo;makes a big deal about not liking games%26rsquo; just isn%26rsquo;t true. Bobby has always been passionate about games, and loves the video game industry. But as CEO of a company that makes games enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, the demands on his time now make it difficult to play games as often as he%26rsquo;d like to or as much as he once did.%26rdquo;
