Activition threatens to drop Sony if they don't see some price drops

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick says that if Sony does not drop the price of the PS3 and the PSP, Activision will drop Sony. Apparently, he had came to the conclusion that the number of games being sold will drop without a cut in prices. He also said that it was a lot cheaper to make games for Microsoft and Nintendo, and that Activision payed $500 million in royalties to Sony. With 23 million PS3's, its really hard to see Activision ignore Sony's consoles completely. Now only if Activision could realize how much they charge people for gaming peripherals that are a necessity for their games. (i.e. Guitar/DJ hero, Tony Hawk Ride)
