1.   BASIS OF PRESENTATION

     The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the
     accounts of Activision, Inc. and its subsidiaries.  The information
     furnished is unaudited and reflects all adjustments which, in the opinion
     of management, are necessary to provide a fair statement of the results for
     the interim periods presented.  The financial statements should be read in
     conjunction with the financial statements included in the Company's Annual
     Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 1995.

     Certain amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements have
     been reclassified to conform with the current period's presentation. These
     reclassifications had no impact on previously reported working capital or
     results of operations.

2.   INVENTORIES

     Inventories comprise (amounts in thousands):

3.   DEFERRED REVENUE

     Revenue from licensing agreements which provide customers the right to
     multiple copies in exchange for guaranteed amounts is recognized upon
     delivery of the product master or the first copy; when per copy royalties
     on sales exceed the minimum guaranteed quantities, revenue is recognized.
     The Company defers recognition of revenue from licensing agreements until
     the completion by the Company of its future obligations under such
     agreements including, but not limited to, the achievement of technological
     feasibility of the products or assets to be delivered under such
     obligations and future collectibility.  Deferred revenue of $1,740,000 as
     of December 31, 1995 represents minimum guarantee payments received by the
     Company in advance of future deliveries of products or product components
     under such agreements.

4.   AMORTIZATION OF INTANGIBLE ASSETS

     Effective April 1, 1992, Disc Company, Inc. ("TDC"), a Delaware corporation
     and a wholly-owned subsidiary of International Consumer Technologies
     Corporation, was merged with and into the Company, with the Company as the
     surviving corporation.  The excess of the purchase price over the estimated
     fair values of the net assets acquired was recorded as an intangible asset
     in the amount of  $24,417,000.  This intangible asset is being amortized on
     a straight-line basis over a 20 year period.  Amortization was
     approximately $305,000 for each of the quarters ended December 31, 1995 and
     1994 and $916,000 for each of the the nine month periods ended December 31,
     1995 and 1994.  The Company systematically evaluates current and expected
     cash flow from operations on a non-discounted basis for the purpose of
     assessing the recoverability of recorded intangible assets.  Some of the
     factors considered in this evaluation include operating results, business
     plans, budgets and economic projections.  Should such factors indicate that
     recoverability might be impaired, the Company would appropriately adjust
     the recorded amount of the intangible asset and/or the period over which
     the recorded intangible asset is amortized.
     
5.   EARNINGS (LOSS) PER COMMON SHARE

     Earnings (loss) per common share is computed using the weighted average
     number of common and, when dilutive, common equivalent shares outstanding
     during the period.  For the quarter ended December 31, 1995, the weighted
     average number of shares in the computation of earnings per share was
     increased by approximately 1,239,000 of common equivalent shares.



ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS
      OF OPERATIONS

                                    OVERVIEW

     The Company is a diversified international publisher of interactive
entertainment software.  The Company develops and publishes entertainment
software for a variety of platforms, including both personal computer CD-ROM
desk-top systems, such as the Windows 95 operating system, and videogame set-top
hardware systems, such as the Sega Saturn and Sony Playstation.  The Company
distributes its products worldwide through its direct sales force and, to a
lesser extent, through third party distributors and licensees.

                              RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

     Net revenues for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 1995
decreased 33% and increased 17%, respectively, from the same periods last year.
The increase in desk-top net revenues during the current quarter was primarily
due to continuing strong sales of "Mechwarrior 2" (DOS CD) which was released in
July 1995, as well as the initial release of "Mechwarrior 2" (Windows 95 CD),
five "Mighty Morphin Power Ranger" titles (Windows and Mac CD), "Mechwarrior 2
Expansion Pack: Ghost Bear's Legacy" (DOS CD) and "Earthworm Jim" (Windows 95
CD).  The decrease in set-top net revenues during the current quarter was due to
the Company's strategic change in its business emphasis from cartridge-based
set-top system to CD-based desk-top systems.  On-line, OEM, licensing and other
net revenues increased during the current quarter due to OEM and licensing 
revenues related to "Mechwarrior 2", "Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure", "Shanghai:
Great Moments" and "Earthworm Jim".

</TABLE>


     For purposes of the foregoing presentation, net revenues from set-top
systems relate to sales of entertainment software products designed by the
Company for operation on a hardware device that is connected to a television set
and displayed on a television screen.  Examples of set-top systems include Super
Nintendo Entertainment System ("SNES"), Sega Genesis ("SGS"), Sega Saturn
("Saturn"), Sony Playstation ("Playstation"), Atari Jaguar, CD-I and 3DO
Multiplayer ("3DO").  The Company designs products for operation on many of
these systems, and normally it is required to pay a license fee for the right to
create products for a particular system.  Net revenues from desk-top systems
relate to sales of those entertainment software products designed by the Company
for operation through a personal computer's operating system software and that
is displayed on the computer's monitor.  Examples of computer operating systems
include MS-DOS, Windows and the Macintosh operating system.  The Company
generally is not obligated to pay an operating system license fee for the right
to produce desk-top products.

     Included in on-line, OEM, licensing and other revenues is approximately
$750,000 related to the settlement and sale of certain product licensing rights
back to the original licensor.

</TABLE>


     Net revenues from Activision Studios relate to those entertainment software
products (both set-top and desk-top) designed, developed and produced through
the Company's Activision Studios division and that are owned by the Company.
Net revenues from Acquisitions and Affiliated Labels relate to those
entertainment software products developed by third parties for which the Company
obtains all or certain distribution rights.  Such distribution rights may take
the form of a co-ownership arrangement or a license, and the Company's
obligation to incur marketing, promotion, sales and advertising expenses in
connection with the rights being acquired may vary from product to product.

Cost of Goods Sold

     Cost of goods sold related to set-top, desk-top and OEM revenues represent
the manufacturing and related costs of computer software and video games.
Manufacturers of the Company's computer software are located in the United
States and Europe and are readily available.  Set-top cartridges and CDs are
manufactured by the respective video game console manufacturers, such as
Nintendo, Sega and Sony, who require significant lead time to fulfill the
Company's orders.

     Also included in cost of goods sold is royalty expense related to amounts
due to developers, title owners or other royalty participants based on product
sales.  Various contracts are maintained with developers, product title owners
or other royalty participants which state a royalty rate and term of agreement,
among other items.  The decrease in cost of goods sold is a result of the shift
in the Company's strategy from cartridge-based set-top products to CD-based 
desk-top products.

Gross Profit

     For the quarter ended December 31, 1995, gross profit as a percentage of
net revenues was 59.4% compared to 37.9% for the quarter ended December 31,
1994.  The majority of the Company's revenues in the quarter ended December 31,
1995 were derived from desk-top products that carry a higher gross profit than
set-top products.  In contrast, revenues derived from set-top products
represented a greater portion of total net revenues in the quarter ended
December 31, 1994.  The increase in gross profit also was due to the increase in
on-line, OEM, licensing and other revenues, which carry higher gross profit.

     Gross profit increased as a percent of net revenues from 42.5% for the nine
months ended December 31, 1994 to 61.2% for the nine months ended December 31,
1995.  The increase in gross margin over this period was primarily due to the
overall shift in the Company's product mix from cartridge-based set-top products
to CD-based desk-top products.

</TABLE>


     Product development expenses increased due to the continued growth of the
Company's product development departments, the increased number of products in
product development and the increase in costs associated with enhanced
production content and new technologies incorporated into such products.
Approximately $3,507,000 and $8,249,000 of product development expenses for the
quarter and nine  months ended December 31, 1995, respectively, relate to
products which will be released in subsequent periods.   Sales and marketing
expenses decreased for the quarter as a result of a reduction in broadcast
advertising, although such reduction was partially offset by the growth of the
sales and marketing departments.  General and administrative expenses increased
due to an increase in head count related expenses as compared to the same period
in the prior year.

     Amortization of intangible assets represents the amortization of the excess
purchase price over identifiable assets acquired from the acquisition of Disc
Company, Inc. on April 1, 1992 and the amortization of capitalized
reorganization costs.

Other Income (Expense)

     Interest income, net, was $409,000 and $1,343,000 for the quarter and nine
months ended December 31, 1995, respectively, compared to approximately $414,000
and $1,151,000 for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 1994.  The
decrease for the quarter ended December 31, 1995 was due to lower average cash
balances during the period as a result of the Company's purchases of its common
stock in the open market in December 1995, while the increase for the nine
months ended December 31, 1995 was due to the higher yields earned on cash and
cash equivalents.

Provision for Income Taxes

     Income taxes represent foreign taxes withheld which may be available in the
future as tax credits against future tax liability.  In addition, the Company
has significant net operating losses which may be carried forward against a
portion of future taxable income for both federal and state tax purposes.
                                        
                                   SEASONALITY

     The Company's quarterly operating results have in the past varied
significantly and will likely in the future vary significantly depending on a
variety of factors, many of which are not under the Company's control.  For
example, net revenues may be higher during the fourth calendar quarter as a
result of increased demand for consumer software during the year-end holiday
buying season.  Net revenues in other quarters can vary significantly as a
result of the timing of new product introductions.

     Products are generally shipped as orders are received, and consequently the
Company operates with little or no backlog.  Net revenues in any quarter are
therefore substantially dependent on orders booked and shipped in that quarter.
The Company's expense levels are based in large part on the Company's product
development and marketing budgets.  The majority of product development and
marketing costs are expensed as incurred, which is often before a product is
ever released.  As the Company increases its development and marketing
activities, current expenses will increase and, if sales from previously
released products are below expectations, net income is likely to be
disproportionately affected.  Due to all of the foregoing, revenues and
operating results for any future quarter are not predictable with any
significant degree of accuracy.  Accordingly, the Company believes that period-
to-period comparisons of operating results are not necessarily meaningful and
should not be relied upon as indications of future performance.

                         LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

     On January 31, 1994, the Company completed a private placement of
approximately 5,000,000 shares of its common stock.  The net proceeds from this
private placement, approximately $39.5 million, together with funds from
operations, have been the Company's primary source of liquidity for the fiscal
year ended March 31, 1995 and for the current fiscal year.  At December 31,
1995, the Company had a balance of approximately $28.1 million of cash and cash
equivalents.

     The Company uses its working capital to finance ongoing operations,
including acquisitions of inventory and equipment, to fund the development,
production, marketing and selling of new products, and to obtain intellectual
property rights for future products from third parties.

     The Company's working capital decreased $6.6 million from March 31, 1995 to
December 31, 1995 as a result of the Company's purchases of its common stock in
the open market in the amount of $5.3 million, the funding of the Company's
expanding operations and additional capital expenditures.  At December 31, 1995,
net accounts receivable and inventories were $14.2 million, an increase of $6.7
million from $7.5 million as of March 31, 1995.  The increase is due primarily
to an increase in the Company's product sales in the third quarter  of the
fiscal year as compared to the quarter ended March 31, 1995.

     As of December 31, 1995, total accounts payable and accrued liabilities
were approximately $10.7 million versus $5.7 million at March 31, 1995.  The
increase at December 31, 1995 is related to the  the increase in cost of goods
sold as well as operating expenses related to the increase in the Company's
product sales in the third quarter of the current fiscal year.

     Management believes that the Company's existing capital resources are
sufficient to meet its current operational requirements for the foreseeable
future.

     The Company's management currently believes that inflation has not had a
material impact on continuing operations.
