* ExecutiveMeddling: Possibly one of the least veiled examples. Shortly before Radical's decommisioning, a poll on their Prototype 2 Website/{{Facebook}} page [[https://www.facebook.com/questions/414351785275423 surveying which platform did users generally play their games on]], presumably the ones interested in Prototype 2[-[[note]]since you know, it was asked on the PROTOTYPE 2 Facebook page[[/note]]-]. The poll shows PC users outnumbering the combined total of both {{Microsoft}}'s and Creator/{{Sony}}'s console users, so here is the kicker: Creator/{{Activision}} stated that the Prototype franchise [[http://www.giantbomb.com/news/looks-like-radical-entertainment-shut-down/4246 "did not find a broad commercial audience"]]... when the potential majority of its would-be players were being held out on a platform that the game had yet to be released on. Of course, Activision has something of a reputation for the so-called devouring of lesser developers for whatever reasons[-[[note]]like, maybe relocate talents to assist in cranking out CashCowFranchise [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty products at least once per year?[[/note]]-], but this example shows that they've done very little to disguise anything or even attempt to be subtle.
