Kotick: Bungie is the last great indie

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick wants the world to know his firm is embarking on an exclusive ten-year partnership with Bungie, and in typical fashion he is doing so by way of cavalier and comical sound bites.

"Bungie are a very unusual company. They're probably the last remaining high quality independent developer,” he said.
