Item 4.	Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant

(a)  Previous Independent Accountants

    (i)  Activision, Inc. (the "Company") replaced Coopers and Lybrand, 
         LLP ("Coopers and Lybrand") as its principal accountants, 
         effective January 17, 1997.  The action was approved by the 
         Company's Board of Directors.  
   (ii)  Coopers and Lybrand's reports on the Company's financial 
         statements for the past two fiscal years did not contain an 
         adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion and were not 
         qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or 
         accounting principles.
  (iii)  During the two most recent fiscal years ended and all  interim 
         periods through January 17, 1997, (i) there were no 
         disagreements with Coopers and Lybrand on any matter of 
         accounting principles or practices, financial statement 
         disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which 
         disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Coopers 
         and Lybrand, would have caused Coopers and Lybrand to make a 
         reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in 
         connection with its reports in the financial statements for 
         such years, and (ii) there were no reportable events as 
         described in Item 304 of Regulation S-K.
   (iv)  The Company provided Coopers and Lybrand with a copy of this 
         report no later than the date this report was filed with the 
         Securities and Exchange Commission and has requested that 
         Coopers and Lybrand furnish it with the letter described in 
         Item 304 (a) (3) of Regulation S-K.  A copy of the letter from 
         Coopers and Lybrand  to the Securities and Exchange Commission 
         described in Item 304 (a) (3) of Regulation S-K is filed as 
         Exhibit 16 hereto.

(b)  New Independent Accountants
    (i)  The Company engaged KPMG Peat Marwick LLP ("Peat Marwick") as 
         the Company's principal accountants to audit the Company's 
         financial statements, effective January 17, 1997.  The action 
         was recommended by the Company's Audit Review Committee and was 
         approved by the Company's Board of Directors. During its two 
         most recent fiscal years and the subsequent interim period 
         prior to engaging Peat Marwick, neither the Company nor anyone 
         on its behalf has consulted with Peat Marwick regarding the 
         application of accounting principles to a specified 
         transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit 
         opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial 
         statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was 
         provided to the Company that Peat Marwick concluded was an 
         important factor considered by the Company in reaching a 
         decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting
