What Activision doesn't need:
Activision doesn't need to be trying to duplicated EA's crap with Madden, The Sims etc. They need to focus on what they're good at: releasing some of the best games around. EA hasn't put out good games since the 90s with the Bond games and early 3D versions of Madden and such. At this point though long franchises are void.

The industry needs to start fresh and hire writers to create innovative games. Period.
