Goldman, Sachs & Co.
85 Broad Street, 15th Floor
New York, NY 10004

Ladies and Gentlemen:

     Activision, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), proposes to issue
and sell 7,500,000 shares of its common stock, par value $.000001 per share (the
"Common Stock"), of the Company (the "Firm Securities") to Goldman, Sachs & Co.
(the "Underwriter"). The Company also proposes to grant to the Underwriter an
option to purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares of Common Stock to cover
over-allotments, if any (the "Option Securities"), and together with the Firm
Securities, the "Offered Securities"). The Company hereby agrees with the
Underwriter as follows:

     1. Representations and Warranties of the Company. The Company represents
and warrants to, and agrees with, the Underwriter that:

          (a) A registration statement on Form S-3 (No. 333 74460), including a
     form of prospectus, relating to the Offered Securities has been filed with
     the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") and has been
     declared effective. Either (i) an additional registration statement
     relating to the Offered Securities has been filed with the Commission
     pursuant to Rule 462(b) ("Rule 462(b)")
 under the Securities Act of 1933,
     as amended (the "Act"), and, if so filed, has become effective upon filing
     pursuant to such Rule and the Offered Securities all have been duly
     registered under the Act pursuant to the initial registration statement
     and, if applicable, the additional registration statement, or (ii) such an
     additional registration statement is proposed to be filed with the
     Commission pursuant to Rule 462(b) and will become effective upon filing
     pursuant to such Rule and upon such filing the Offered Securities will all
     have been duly registered under the Act pursuant to the initial
     registration statement and such additional registration statement. For
     purposes of the Agreement, the "Effective Date" means with respect to (i)
     the initial registration statement the date and time as of which such
     registration statement was declared effective by the Commission, (ii) the
     additional registration statement, if filed prior to the execution and
     delivery of this Agreement, the date and time as of which such registration

                                       4

     statement was filed and became effective upon filing pursuant to Rule
     462(b) or (iii) the additional registration statement, if it has not been
     filed prior to the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the date and
     time as of which such registration statement is filed and becomes effective
     pursuant to Rule 462(b). The initial registration statement, as amended at
     the time of this Agreement, including all material incorporated by
     reference therein, including all information contained in the additional
     registration statement (if any) and deemed to be a part of the initial
     registration statement as of the Effective Date of the additional
     registration statement pursuant to the General Instructions of the Form on
     which it is filed, is hereinafter referred to as the "Initial Registration
     Statement." The additional registration statement, as amended at its
     Effective Date, including the contents of the initial registration
     statement incorporated by reference therein, is hereinafter referred to as
     the "Additional Registration Statement." The Initial Registration Statement
     and the Additional Registration Statement are hereinafter referred to
     collectively as the "Registration Statements" and individually as a
     "Registration Statement." The form of prospectus included in the
     Registration Statement, as supplemented to reflect the terms of offering of
     the Offered Securities, as first filed with the Commission pursuant to and
     in accordance with Rule 424(b) ("Rule 424(b)") under the Act, including all
     material incorporated by reference therein, is hereinafter referred to as
     the "Prospectus."

          (b) (i) On the Effective Date of the Initial Registration Statement,
     the Initial Registration Statement conformed in all material respects to
     the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission
     (the "Rules and Regulations") and did not include any untrue statement of a
     material fact or omit to state any material fact required to be stated
     therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, (ii) on
     the Effective Date of the Additional Registration Statement (if any), each
     Registration Statement conformed, or will conform, in all material respects
     to the requirements of the Act and the Rules and Regulations and did not
     include, or will not include, any untrue statement of a material fact and
     did not omit, or will not omit, to state any material fact required to be
     stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading,
     and (iii) on the date of this Agreement, the Initial Registration Statement
     and, if the Effective Date of the Additional Registration Statement is
     prior to the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the Additional
     Registration Statement and the Prospectus each conform in all material
     respects to the requirements of the Act and the Rules and Regulations, and
     none of such documents includes any untrue statement of a material fact or
     omits to state any material fact required to be stated therein or necessary
     to make the statements therein not misleading, except that the foregoing
     does not apply to statements in or omissions from any of such documents
     based upon written information furnished to the Company by the Underwriter
     specifically for use therein.

          (c) The documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by
     reference in the Registration Statements and the Prospectus, at the time
     they were or hereafter are filed with the Commission, complied and will
     comply in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities
     Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "1934 Act"), and the rules and
     regulations of the Commission thereunder (the "1934 Act Regulations"), and,
     when read together with the other information in the Prospectus, at the 
     time the 

                                       5

     Prospectus was issued and at the Closing Date (as such term is defined
     below) (and if any Option Securities are purchased, at the Option Closing
     Date (as such term is defined below)), did not and will not contain an
     untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact
     required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein
     not misleading.

          (d) The Company has been duly organized and is validly existing as a
     corporation in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware and
     has corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate its properties
     and to conduct its business as described in the Prospectus and to enter
     into and perform its obligations under this Agreement; and the Company is
     duly qualified as a foreign corporation to transact business and is in good
     standing in each other jurisdiction in which such qualification is
     required, whether by reason of the ownership or leasing of property or the
     conduct of business, except where the failure so to qualify or to be in
     good standing would not have a material adverse effect on the condition,
     financial or otherwise, or on the earnings, or business affairs of the
     Company and its subsidiaries considered as one enterprise, whether or not
     arising in the ordinary course of business (a "Material Adverse Effect").

          (e) Each "significant subsidiary" of the Company (as such term is
     defined in Rule 1 02 of Regulation S X) (each a "Subsidiary" and,
     collectively, the "Subsidiaries") has been duly organized, incorporated or
     formed and is validly existing as an entity in good standing under the laws
     of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or other formation, has corporate,
     partnership, limited liability company or other power and authority to own,
     lease and operate its properties and to conduct its business as now
     conducted and is duly qualified as a foreign corporation, foreign
     partnership, foreign limited liability company or other entity to transact
     business and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which such
     qualification is required, whether by reason of the ownership or leasing of
     property or the conduct of business, except where the failure so to qualify
     or to be in good standing would not result in a Material Adverse Effect;
     except as otherwise disclosed in the Registration Statements, all of the
     issued and outstanding capital stock or partnership or membership interests
     of each such Subsidiary has been duly authorized and validly issued, is
     fully paid and non assessable and is owned 100% by the Company, directly or
     through its subsidiaries; none of the outstanding shares of capital stock
     or partnership or membership interests of any Subsidiary were issued in
     violation of the preemptive or similar rights of any securityholder of such
     Subsidiary. All Subsidiaries of the Company are listed on Schedule 1
     hereto.

          (f) The Offered Securities and all other outstanding shares of issued
     and outstanding capital stock of the Company have been duly authorized; all
     outstanding shares of capital stock of the Company are and, when the
     Offered Securities have been delivered and paid for in accordance with this
     Agreement on the Closing Date or the Option Closing Date, such Offered
     Securities will have been, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable and
     will conform to the description thereof contained in the Prospectus; and
     the stockholders of the Company have no preemptive or other similar rights
     with respect to the Offered Securities.

                                       6

          (g) Except as disclosed in the Prospectus, there are no contracts,
     agreements or understandings between the Company and any person that would
     give rise to a valid claim against the Company or the Underwriter for a
     brokerage commission, finder's fee or other like payment in connection with
     this offering.

          (h) The Offered Securities, when issued on the Closing Date or the
     Option Closing Date, will have been approved for listing on the Nasdaq
     Stock Market's National Market, subject to official notice of issuance.

          (i) No filing with, or authorization, approval, consent, license,
     order, registration, qualification or decree of, any court or governmental
     authority or agency is necessary or required for the performance by the
     Company of its obligations hereunder, in connection with the offering,
     issuance or sale of the Offered Securities hereunder or the consummation of
     the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, except such as have been
     already obtained or as may be required under the Act or the Rules and
     Regulations or state securities laws or by the Nasdaq National Market.

          (j) The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the
     issuance and sale of the Offered Securities will not result in a breach or
     violation of any of the terms and provisions of, or constitute a default
     under, any statute, rule, regulation or order of any governmental agency or
     body or any court, domestic or foreign, having jurisdiction over the
     Company or any Subsidiary or any of their properties, or any material
     agreement or instrument to which the Company or any such Subsidiary is a
     party or by which the Company or any such Subsidiary is bound or to which
     any of the properties of the Company or any such Subsidiary is subject, or
     the charter or by laws of the Company or any such Subsidiary.

          (k) This Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by
     the Company.

          (l) Except as disclosed in the Prospectus, the Company and its
     Subsidiaries have good and marketable title to all real properties and all
     other properties and assets owned by them, in each case free from liens,
     encumbrances and defects that would materially affect the value thereof or
     materially interfere with the use made or to be made thereof by them; and
     except as disclosed in the Prospectus, the Company and its Subsidiaries
     hold any leased real or personal property material to the business of the
     Company and its Subsidiaries, considered as one enterprise, under valid and
     enforceable leases with no exceptions that would materially interfere with
     the use made or to be made thereof by them.

          (m) The Company and its Subsidiaries possess adequate certificates,
     authorities or permits issued by appropriate governmental agencies or
     bodies necessary to conduct the business now operated by them and have not
     received any notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or
     modification of any such certificate, authority or permit that, if
     determined adversely to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, would
     reasonably be expected, individually or in the aggregate, to have a
     Material Adverse Effect.

                                       7

          (n) No labor dispute with the employees of the Company or any
     Subsidiary exists or, to the knowledge of the Company, is imminent that
     would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

          (o) The Company and its Subsidiaries own or possess, or can acquire on
     reasonable terms, adequate patents, patent rights, licenses, inventions,
     copyrights, know how (including trade secrets and other unpatented and/or
     unpatentable proprietary or confidential information, systems or
     procedures), trademarks, service marks, trade names or other intellectual
     property (collectively, "Intellectual Property") necessary to carry on the
     business now operated by them, and neither the Company nor any of its
     Subsidiaries has received any notice or is otherwise aware of any
     infringement of or conflict with asserted rights of others with respect to
     any Intellectual Property or of any facts or circumstances which would
     render any Intellectual Property invalid or inadequate to protect the
     interest of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries therein, and which
     infringement or conflict (if the subject of any unfavorable decision,
     ruling or finding) or invalidity or inadequacy, singly or in the aggregate,
     would result in a Material Adverse Effect.

          (p) Except as disclosed in the Prospectus and except as would not,
     singly or in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to result in a Material
     Adverse Effect, (i) neither the Company nor any of its Subsidiaries is in
     violation of any statute, rule, regulation, decision or order of any
     governmental agency or body or any court, domestic or foreign, relating to
     the use, disposal or release of hazardous or toxic substances or relating
     to the protection or restoration of the environment or human exposure to
     hazardous or toxic substances (collectively, "Environmental Laws"), and
     (ii) the Company and each of its Subsidiaries have received all permits,
     licenses or other approvals required of them under applicable Environmental
     Laws and the Company and each Subsidiary is in compliance with all terms
     and conditions of any such permits, licenses or other approvals; and the
     Company is not aware of any pending investigation which might lead to such
     a claim.

          (q) Except as disclosed in the Prospectus, there are no pending
     actions, suits or proceedings against or affecting the Company, any of its
     Subsidiaries or any of their respective properties that, if determined
     adversely to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, would, individually or
     in the aggregate, reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect,
     or which might reasonably be expected to materially and adversely affect
     the ability of the Company to perform its obligations under this Agreement
     or which are otherwise material in the context of the sale of the Offered
     Securities; and, to the Company's knowledge, no such actions, suits or
     proceedings are threatened or contemplated.

          (r) The audited financial statements included in the Prospectus,
     together with the related notes (the "Audited Financials"), and the
     unaudited financial statements included in the Company's Quarterly Report
     on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ending December 31, 2001, together
     with the related schedules and notes (the "Quarterly Financials"), present
     fairly the financial position of the Company and its consolidated
     subsidiaries as of the dates indicated and their results of operations and
     cash flows for the periods specified, and except as set forth in such
     Reports such financial statements have 

                                       8

     been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles
     in the United States ("GAAP") applied on a consistent basis throughout the
     periods involved.

          (s) Except as disclosed in the Prospectus, since the date of the
     Audited Financials included in the Prospectus, there has been no material
     adverse change, nor any development or event involving a prospective
     material adverse change, in the condition (financial or other), business,
     properties or results of operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries
     taken as a whole, and, except as disclosed in or contemplated by the
     Prospectus, there has been no dividend or distribution of any kind
     declared, paid or made by the Company on any class of its capital stock.

          (t) The Company has filed all foreign, federal, state and local tax
     returns that are required to be filed or has requested extensions thereof
     (except in any case in which the failure so to file would not reasonably be
     expected to have a Material Adverse Effect) and has paid all taxes required
     to be paid by it and any other assessment, fine or penalty levied against
     it, to the extent that any of the foregoing is due and payable, except for
     any such assessment, fine or penalty that is currently being contested in
     good faith or as described in or contemplated by the Prospectus.

          (u) The Company is in compliance in all material respects with all
     presently applicable provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security
     Act of 1974, as amended, including the regulations and published
     interpretations thereunder ("ERISA"); no "reportable event" (as defined in
     ERISA) has occurred with respect to any "pension plan" (as defined in
     ERISA) for which the Company would have any liability; the Company has not
     incurred and does not expect to incur liability under (i) Title IV of ERISA
     with respect to termination of, or withdrawal from, any "pension plan" or
     (ii) Sections 412 or 4971 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended,
     including the regulations and published interpretations thereunder (the
     "Code"); and each "pension plan" for which the Company would have any
     liability that is intended to be qualified under Section 401(a) of the Code
     is so qualified in all material respects and nothing has occurred, whether
     by action or by failure to act, which would cause the loss of such
     qualification.

          (v) No default exists, and no event has occurred which, with notice or
     lapse of time or both, would constitute a default in the due performance
     and observance of any term, covenant or condition of any indenture,
     mortgage, deed of trust, lease or other agreement or instrument to which
     the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or by which the Company
     or any of its Subsidiaries or any of their respective properties is bound,
     except for such defaults that would not result in a Material Adverse
     Effect.

          (w) The Company is not, and upon the issuance and sale of the Offered
     Securities as herein contemplated and the application of the net proceeds
     therefrom as described in the Prospectus will not be, an "investment
     company" or an entity "controlled" by an "investment company" as such terms
     are defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

                                       9

          (x) The Company is subject to and in compliance with the reporting
     requirements of Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the 1934 Act. The Common
     Stock is registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the 1934 Act and is listed
     on the Nasdaq National Market, and the Company has taken no action designed
     to, or likely to have the effect of, terminating the registration of the
     Common Stock under the 1934 Act or delisting the Common Stock from the
     Nasdaq National Market, nor has the Company received any notification that
     the Commission or the NASD is contemplating terminating such registration
     or listing.

          (y) Each of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and KPMG LLP has certified
     certain financial statements of the Company and its consolidated
     Subsidiaries included in the Prospectus and is an independent public
     accountant as required by the Act and the Rules and Regulations.

     2. Purchase, Sale and Delivery of Offered Securities.

     (a) On the basis of the representations, warranties and agreements herein
contained, but subject to the terms and conditions herein set forth, the Company
agrees to sell to the Underwriter, and the Underwriter agrees to purchase from
the Company, at a purchase price of $33.11 per share, 7,500,000 shares of Firm
Securities.

     The Company will deliver the Firm Securities to the Underwriter for its
account (in the form of definitive certificates, issued in such names and in
such denominations as the Underwriter may direct by notice in writing to the
Company given at or prior to 12:00 Noon, New York time, on the second full
business day preceding the Closing Date) against payment of the aggregate
purchase price therefor in federal (same day) funds by official bank check or
checks or wire transfer to an account at a bank acceptable to the Company,
payable to the order of the Company, at the offices of Robinson Silverman Pearce
Aronsohn & Berman LLP, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10104, at
10:00 A.M., New York time, on June 7, 2002, in accordance with Rule 15c6-1 of
the 1934 Act, or at such other time not later than seven full business days
thereafter as the Underwriter and the Company determine, such time being herein
referred to as the "Closing Date". The Company shall make the certificates for
the Firm Securities available to the Underwriter for examination in New York,
New York at least twenty-four hours prior to the Closing Date. The Closing Date
and the location of delivery of, and the form of payment for, the Firm
Securities may be varied by agreement between the Company and the Underwriter.

     (b) In addition, on the basis of the representations, warranties and
agreements herein contained, but subject to the terms and conditions herein set
forth, for the purpose of covering any over-allotments in connection with the
distribution and sale of the Firm Securities as contemplated by the Prospectus,
the Underwriter may purchase from the Company, at a purchase price of $33.11 per
share, up to 750,000 Option Securities. The option granted hereby may be
exercised as to all or any part of the Option Securities at any time, and from
time to time, not more than thirty (30) days subsequent to the date of this
Agreement. No Option Securities shall be sold and delivered unless the Firm
Securities previously have been, or simultaneously are, sold and delivered.

                                       10

     The option granted hereby may be exercised by written notice given to the
Company by the Underwriter setting forth the number of shares of the Option
Securities to be purchased by the Underwriter and the date and time for delivery
of and payment for the Option Securities. Each date and time for delivery of and
payment for the Option Securities (which may be the Closing Date, but not
earlier) is herein called the "Option Closing Date" and shall in no event be
earlier than two (2) business days nor later than five (5) business days after
such written notice is given.

     The Company will deliver the Option Securities to the Underwriter for its
account (in the form of definitive certificates, issued in such names and in
such denominations as the Underwriter may direct by notice in writing to the
Company given at or prior to 12:00 Noon, New York time, on the second full
business day preceding the Option Closing Date) against payment of the aggregate
purchase price therefor in federal (same day) funds by official bank check or
checks or wire transfer to an account at a bank acceptable to the Company,
payable to the order of the Company, at the offices of Robinson Silverman Pearce
Aronsohn & Berman LLP. The Company shall make the certificates for the Option
Securities available to the Underwriter for examination in New York, New York at
least twenty-four hours prior to the Option Closing Date. The Option Closing
Date and the location of delivery of, and the form of payment for, the Option
Securities may be varied by agreement between the Company and the Underwriter.

     3. Offering by Underwriter. It is understood that the Underwriter proposes
to offer the Offered Securities for sale upon the terms and conditions as set
forth in the Prospectus.

     4. Certain Agreements of the Company. The Company agrees with the
Underwriter that:

          (a) The Company will file the Prospectus with the Commission pursuant
     to and in accordance with Rule 424(b)(2) not later than the second business
     day following the execution and delivery of this Agreement. If an
     additional registration statement necessary to register a portion of the
     Offered Securities under the Act has not been filed prior to the execution
     and delivery of this Agreement, the Company will file the additional
     registration statement in accordance with Rule 462(b) on or prior to 6:00
     P.M., New York City time, on the date following the date of this Agreement.

          (b) The Company will advise the Underwriter promptly of any proposal
     to amend or supplement the Registration Statements or the Prospectus and
     will afford the Underwriter a reasonable opportunity to comment on any such
     proposed amendment or supplement; and the Company will also advise the
     Underwriter promptly of the filing of any such amendment or supplement and
     of the institution by the Commission of any stop order proceedings in
     respect of the Registration Statements or of any part thereof and will use
     its best efforts to prevent the issuance of any such stop order and to
     obtain as soon as possible its lifting, if issued.

          (c) If at any time prior to the expiration of nine months after the
     Effective Date of any Registration Statement when a prospectus relating to
     the Offered Securities is required to be delivered under the Act in
     connection with sales of the Offered Securities, 

                                       11

     any event occurs as a result of which, in the opinion of counsel for the
     Underwriter or for the Company, the Prospectus as then amended or
     supplemented would include an untrue statement of material fact or omit to
     state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in light
     of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, or if it
     is necessary, in the opinion of such counsel, at any time to amend the
     Prospectus to comply with the Act, the Company promptly will notify the
     Underwriter of such event and, upon its request, will prepare and file with
     the Commission, at its own expense, an amendment or supplement which will
     correct such statement or omission or an amendment which will effect such
     compliance. The Company will furnish without charge to the Underwriter as
     many copies as the Underwriter may from time to time reasonably request of
     such amended or supplemented Prospectus.

          (d) The Company will make generally available to its securityholders
     as soon as practicable, but in any event not later than 18 months after the
     Effective Date of the Initial Registration Statement (as defined in Rule
     158(c) under the Act) (or, if later, the Effective Date of the Additional
     Registration Statement), an earnings statement of the Company (which need
     not be audited unless required by the Act) complying with Section 11(a) of
     the Act and the Rules and Regulations (including, at the option of the
     Company, Rule 158).

          (e) The Company will furnish to the Underwriter copies of each
     Registration Statement, including all exhibits, the Prospectus and all
     amendments and supplements to such documents, in each case as soon as
     available and in such quantities as the Underwriter may reasonably request.
     The Company will pay the expenses of printing and distributing to the
     Underwriter all such documents.

          (f) The Company will use its best efforts, in cooperation with the
     Underwriter, to qualify the Offered Securities for offering and sale under
     the laws of such jurisdictions as the Underwriter may designate and will
     continue such qualifications in effect so long as required for the
     distribution; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to
     file any general consent to service of process or to qualify as a foreign
     corporation or as a dealer in securities in any jurisdiction in which it is
     not so qualified or to subject itself to taxation in respect of doing
     business in any jurisdiction in which it is not otherwise so subject.

          (g) The Company will pay all expenses incident to the performance of
     its obligations under this Agreement, including (i) the preparation,
     printing and filing of each Registration Statement as originally filed and
     or each amendment thereto, (ii) the preparation, printing and delivery to
     the Underwriter of this Agreement, (iii) the preparation, issuance and
     delivery of the certificates for the Offered Securities to the Underwriter,
     and expenses incurred thereto, (iv) the fees and disbursements of the
     Company's counsel, accountants and other advisors, (v) the qualification of
     the Offered Securities under securities laws in accordance with the
     provisions of Section 4(f) hereof, (vi) the printing and delivery to the
     Underwriter of copies of the Prospectus and any amendments or supplements
     thereto, (vii) the preparation, printing and delivery to the Underwriter of
     copies of any Blue Sky Survey and any supplement thereto, (viii) the fees
     and expenses of any transfer agent or registrar for the Offered Securities,
     (ix) the filing

                                       12

     fees incident to the review by the National Association of Securities
     Dealers, Inc. (the "NASD") of the terms of the sale of the Offered
     Securities and (x) the fees and expenses incurred in connection with the
     listing of the Offered Securities on the Nasdaq National Market; provided
     that, except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the Underwriter shall
     pay its own costs and expenses, including the fees and expenses of its
     counsel, any transfer taxes on the Offered Securities which it may sell and
     the expenses of advertising any offering of the Offered Securities made by
     the Underwriter.

          (h) The Company will use the net proceeds received by it from the sale
     of the Offered Securities in the manner specified in the Prospectus under
     the Section entitled "Use of Proceeds".

          (i) The Company will use its best efforts to effect and maintain the
     quotation of the Offered Securities on the Nasdaq National Market and will
     file with the Nasdaq National Market all documents and notices required by
     the Nasdaq National Market of companies that have securities that are
     traded in the over-the-counter market and quotations for which are reported
     by the Nasdaq National Market.

          (j) The Company, during the period when the Prospectus is required to
     be delivered under the Act or the 1934 Act, will file all documents
     required to be filed with the Commission pursuant to the 1934 Act within
     the time periods required by the 1934 Act and the 1934 Act Regulations.

          (k) For a period of 60 days after the date of the Prospectus, the
     Company will not offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge or otherwise dispose
     of, directly or indirectly, or file with the Commission a registration
     statement under the Act relating to any additional shares of its securities
     or securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for any
     shares of its securities, or publicly disclose the intention to make any
     such offer, sale, pledge, disposition or filing, without the prior written
     consent of the Underwriter. The foregoing restriction shall not apply to
     (i) issuances of securities pursuant to the conversion or exchange of
     convertible or exchangeable securities or the exercise of warrants or
     options, in each case outstanding on the date hereof, (ii) grants of
     employee stock options or other awards pursuant to the terms of any
     employee benefit plan of the Company in effect on the date hereof or
     outside of any plan in the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors,
     or issuances of securities pursuant to the exercise of such options or
     other awards or issuances described in or contemplated by the Company's
     public filings made in accordance with the 1934 Act, and (iii) issuances of
     shares or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of Common
     Stock in connection with acquisitions by the Company or any Subsidiary
     (collectively, the "Acquisition Shares") if the recipients of such
     Acquisition Shares each agree to be bound by the restrictions set forth
     above for the remainder of the 60-day period; provided that,
     notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may, in connection with
     acquisitions, issue up to 775,000 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate
     not subject to the foregoing restrictions and may file a registration
     statement under the Act with respect to all such 775,000 shares. The
     Company will cause each of its executive officers and directors to furnish
     to the Underwriter, prior to the Closing Date, a lock-up letter,
     substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto.

                                       13

     5. Conditions of the Obligations of the Underwriter. The obligations of the
Underwriter to purchase and pay for the Firm Securities on the Closing Date and
the Option Securities on any Option Closing Date will be subject to the accuracy
of the representations and warranties on the part of the Company herein, the
accuracy of the statements of Company officers made pursuant to the provisions
hereof, the performance by the Company of its obligations hereunder and the
following additional conditions precedent:

          (a) The Prospectus shall have been filed with the Commission in
     accordance with the Rules and Regulations and Section 4(a) of this
     Agreement. The Additional Registration Statement, if not filed prior to the
     execution and delivery of this Agreement, shall have been filed with the
     Commission in accordance with the Rules and Regulations and Section 4(a) of
     this Agreement. No stop order suspending the effectiveness of any
     Registration Statement or of any part thereof shall have been issued and no
     proceedings for that purpose shall have been instituted or, to the
     knowledge of the Company or the Underwriter, shall be contemplated by the
     Commission.

          (b) Subsequent to the execution and delivery of this Agreement, there
     shall not have occurred (i) any change, or any development or event
     involving a prospective change, in the condition (financial or other),
     business, properties or results of operations of the Company and its
     Subsidiaries taken as one enterprise which, in the reasonable judgment of
     the Underwriter, is material and adverse and makes it impractical or
     inadvisable to proceed with completion of the public offering or the sale
     of and payment for the Offered Securities; (ii) any downgrading in the
     rating of any debt securities of the Company by any "nationally recognized
     statistical rating organization" (as defined for purposes of Rule 436(g)
     under the Act), or any public announcement that any such organization has
     under surveillance or review its rating of any debt securities of the
     Company (other than an announcement with positive implications of a
     possible upgrading, and no implication of a possible downgrading, of such
     rating); (iii) any material change in U.S. or international financial,
     political or economic conditions or currency exchange rates or exchange
     controls as would, in the judgment of the Underwriter, be likely to
     prejudice materially the sale or distribution of the Offered Securities;
     (iv) any material suspension or material limitation of trading in
     securities generally on the Nasdaq National Market or the New York Stock
     Exchange, or any setting of minimum prices for trading on such exchange, or
     any suspension of trading of any securities of the Company on any exchanges
     or in the over the counter market; (v) any banking moratorium declared by
     U.S. Federal or New York authorities; (vi) any major disruption of
     settlements of securities or clearance services in the United States; or
     (vii) any attack on, outbreak or escalation of major hostilities or major
     acts of terrorism involving the United States, any declaration of war by
     Congress or any other substantial national or international calamity or
     emergency if, in the judgment of the Underwriter, the effect of any such
     attack, outbreak, escalation, act, declaration, calamity or emergency makes
     it impractical or inadvisable to proceed with completion of the public
     offering and the sale of and payment for the Offered Securities.

          (c) On the Closing Date, Robinson Silverman Pearce Aronsohn & Berman
     LLP shall have furnished to the Underwriter such counsel's written opinion,
     as special counsel to the Company, addressed to the Underwriter and dated
     the Closing Date, in 

                                       14

     form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Underwriter substantially
     in the form set forth as Exhibit B hereto.

          (d) On the Closing Date, the Underwriter shall have received from each
     of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and KPMG LLP a letter, addressed to the
     Underwriter and dated such date, in form and substance reasonably
     satisfactory to the Underwriter (i) confirming that it is an independent
     certified public accountant with respect to the Company and its
     subsidiaries within the meaning of the Act and the Rules and Regulations
     and (ii) stating the conclusions and findings of such firm with respect to
     the financial statements and certain financial information for which such
     firm has acted as auditor and accountant, contained or incorporated by
     reference in the Prospectus.

          (e) On the Closing Date, the Underwriter shall have received from
     Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, counsel for the Underwriter, such
     opinion or opinions, dated the Closing Date, with respect to the
     incorporation of the Company, the validity of the Offered Securities
     delivered on the Closing Date, the Registration Statements, the Prospectus
     and other related matters as the Underwriter may reasonably require, and
     the Company shall have furnished to such counsel such documents as they
     reasonably request for the purpose of enabling them to pass upon such
     matters.

          (f) The Underwriter shall have received a certificate, dated the
     Closing Date, of the President or any Vice President and a principal
     financial or accounting officer of the Company in which such officers, to
     the best of their knowledge after reasonable investigation, shall state
     that (i) the representations and warranties of the Company in this
     Agreement are true and correct, (ii) the Company has in all material
     respects complied with all agreements and satisfied all conditions on its
     part to be performed or satisfied hereunder at or prior to the Closing
     Date, (iii) no stop order suspending the effectiveness of any Registration
     Statement or of any part thereof has been issued and no proceedings for
     that purpose have been instituted or are contemplated by the Commission,
     and (iv) subsequent to the date of the most recent financial statements in
     the Prospectus, there has been no material adverse change, nor any
     development or event involving a prospective material adverse change, in
     the condition (financial or other), business, properties or results of
     operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries taken as one enterprise,
     except as set forth in or contemplated by the Prospectus or as described in
     such certificate.

          (g) On or prior to the date of this Agreement, the Underwriter shall
     have received lock-up letters, substantially in the form of Exhibit A
     hereto, from each of the executive officers and directors of the Company.

          (h) In the event that the Underwriter exercises its option provided in
     Section 2(b) hereof to purchase all or any portion of the Option
     Securities, the representations and warranties of the Company contained
     herein and the statements in any certificates furnished by the Company or
     any Subsidiary hereunder shall be true and correct as of each Option
     Closing Date and, at such date, the Underwriter shall have received: (i)
     the opinion of Robinson Silverman Pearce Aronsohn & Berman LLP, counsel for
     the Company, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the
     Underwriter, dated such 

                                       15

     Option Closing Date, relating to the Firm Securities and the Option
     Securities to be purchased on such Option Closing Date and otherwise to the
     same effect as the opinion required by Section 5(c); (ii) a letter from
     each of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and KPMG LLP, dated as of the Option
     Closing Date, substantially in the same form and substance as the letters
     furnished to the Underwriter pursuant to Section 5(d) hereof; (iii) the
     opinion of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, counsel for the
     Underwriter, dated such Option Closing Date, relating to the Option
     Securities to be purchased on such date and otherwise to the same effect as
     the opinion required by Section 5(e) hereof; and (iv) a certificate, dated
     such Option Closing Date, of the President or any Vice President and a
     principal financial or accounting officer of the Company confirming that
     the certificate delivered on the Closing Date pursuant to Section 5(f)
     hereof remains true and correct as of such Option Closing Date.

          (i) On the Closing Date, the Offered Securities shall have been
     approved for listing on the Nasdaq National Market, subject only to
     official notice of issuance.

     The Company will furnish the Underwriter with conformed copies of such
opinions, certificates, letters and documents as the Underwriter reasonably
requests. The Underwriter may in its sole discretion waive compliance with any
conditions to the obligations of the Underwriter hereunder whether in respect of
an Option Closing Date or otherwise.

     6. Indemnification and Contribution. (a) The Company will indemnify and
hold harmless the Underwriter, its officers, employees, representatives and
agents and each person, if any, who controls the Underwriter within the meaning
of Section 15 of the Act, against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities,
joint or several, to which the Underwriter may become subject, under the Act or
otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in
respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged
untrue statement of any material fact contained in any Registration Statement,
the Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or any related
preliminary prospectus, or arise out of or are based upon the omission or
alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein
or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and will reimburse
the Underwriter for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by the
Underwriter in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim,
damage, liability or action as such expenses are incurred; provided, however,
that the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such
loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is based upon an untrue
statement or alleged untrue statement in or omission or alleged omission from
any of such documents in reliance upon and in conformity with written
information furnished to the Company by the Underwriter specifically for use
therein; and provided, further, that with respect to any untrue statement or
alleged untrue statement in or omission or alleged omission from any preliminary
prospectus the indemnity agreement contained in this subsection (a) shall not
inure to the benefit of the Underwriter from whom the person asserting any such
losses, claims, damages or liabilities purchased the Offered Securities
concerned, to the extent that a Prospectus relating to such Offered Securities
was required to be delivered by the Underwriter under the Act in connection with
such purchase and any such loss, claim, damage or liability of the Underwriter
results from the fact that there was not sent or given to such person, at or
prior to the written confirmation of the sale of such Offered Securities to such
person, a copy of the Prospectus (exclusive of material incorporated by
reference) if the Company had previously 

                                       16

furnished copies thereof to the Underwriter.

               (b) The Underwriter agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the
          Company, its directors and officers and each person, if any, who
          controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Act,
          against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities to which the
          Company may become subject, under the Act or otherwise, insofar as
          such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions in respect
          thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue statement or
          alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in any
          Registration Statement, the Prospectus, or any amendment or supplement
          thereto, or any related preliminary prospectus, or arise out of or are
          based upon the omission or the alleged omission to state therein a
          material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the
          statements therein not misleading, in each case to the extent, but
          only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue
          statement or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon
          and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by
          the Underwriter specifically for use therein, and will reimburse any
          legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by the Company in
          connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim,
          damage, liability or action as such expenses are incurred.

               (c) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this
          Section of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified
          party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the
          indemnifying party under subsection (a) or (b) above, notify the
          indemnifying party of the commencement thereof; but the omission so to
          notify the indemnifying party will not relieve it from any liability
          which it may have to any indemnified party otherwise than under
          subsection (a) or (b) above, except to the extent it has been
          materially prejudiced by such omission. In case any such action is
          brought against any indemnified party and it notifies the indemnifying
          party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party will be
          entitled to participate therein and, to the extent that it may wish,
          jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified, to
          assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to
          such indemnified party, and after notice from the indemnifying party
          to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense
          thereof, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified
          party under this Section for any legal or other expenses subsequently
          incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense
          thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation. An indemnified
          party may participate at its own expense in the defense of any such
          action; provided, however, that counsel to the indemnifying party
          shall not (except with the consent of the indemnified party) also be
          counsel to the indemnified party. In no event shall the indemnifying
          party, in connection with any one such action or separate but
          substantially similar or related actions in the same jurisdiction
          arising out of the same general allegations or circumstances, be
          liable for the reasonable fees and expense of more than one separate
          firm of attorneys at any time for all such indemnified parties, which
          firm shall be designated in writing by the Underwriter in the case of
          parties indemnified pursuant to Section 6(a) above, and by the Company
          in the case of parties indemnified pursuant to Section 6(b) above. No
          indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the
          indemnified party, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened
          action in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been
          a party and indemnity could have been sought 

                                       17

          hereunder by such indemnified party unless such settlement (i)
          includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party from all
          liability on any claims that are the subject matter of such action and
          (ii) does not include a statement as to, or an admission of, fault,
          culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of an indemnified
          party.

               (d) If the indemnification provided for in this Section is
          unavailable or insufficient to hold harmless an indemnified party
          under subsection (a) or (b) above, then each indemnifying party shall
          contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as
          a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred to in
          subsection (a) or (b) above (i) in such proportion as is appropriate
          to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company on the one
          hand and the Underwriter on the other from the offering of the Offered
          Securities or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) above is
          not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate
          to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i)
          above but also the relative fault of the Company on the one hand and
          the Underwriter on the other in connection with the statements or
          omissions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages or
          liabilities as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.
          The relative benefits received by the Company on the one hand and the
          Underwriter on the other shall be deemed to be in the same proportion
          as the total net proceeds from the offering (before deducting
          expenses) received by the Company bear to the total underwriting
          discounts and commissions received by the Underwriter. The relative
          fault shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether
          the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the
          omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to
          information supplied by the Company or the Underwriter and the
          parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and
          opportunity to correct or prevent such untrue statement or omission.
          The amount paid by an indemnified party as a result of the losses,
          claims, damages or liabilities referred to in the first sentence of
          this subsection (d) shall be deemed to include any legal or other
          expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in connection
          with investigating or defending any action or claim which is the
          subject of this subsection (d). Notwithstanding the provisions of this
          subsection (d), the Underwriter shall not be required to contribute
          any amount in excess of the amount by which the total price at which
          the Offered Securities purchased by it and distributed to the public
          were offered to the public exceeds the amount of any damages which
          such Underwriter has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such
          untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. No
          person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of
          Section 11(f) of the Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any
          person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.

               (e) The obligations of the Company under this Section shall be in
          addition to any liability which the Company may otherwise have and
          shall extend, upon the same terms and conditions, to each person, if
          any, who controls the Underwriter within the meaning of the Act; and
          the obligations of the Underwriter under this Section shall be in
          addition to any liability which such Underwriter may otherwise have
          and shall extend, upon the same terms and conditions, to each director
          of the Company, to each officer of the Company who has signed any
          Registration Statement and to each person, if any, who controls the
          Company within the meaning of the Act.

                                       18

     7. Survival of Certain Representations and Obligations. The respective
indemnities, agreements, representations, warranties and other statements of the
Company or its officers and of the Underwriter set forth in or made pursuant to
this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, regardless of any
investigation, or statement as to the results thereof, made by or on behalf of
the Underwriter, the Company or any of their respective representatives,
officers or directors or any controlling person, and will survive delivery of
and payment for the Offered Securities.

     8. Termination. (a) The obligations of the Underwriter hereunder may be
terminated by written notice given to and received by the Company prior to
delivery of and payment for the Offered Securities if, prior to that time, any
of the events described in Section 5(b) have occurred or if the Underwriter
shall decline to purchase the Offered Securities for any reason permitted under
this Agreement.

          (b) If this Agreement shall have been terminated pursuant to Section
     8(a), the Company shall remain responsible for the expenses to be paid or
     reimbursed by it pursuant to Section 4 and the respective obligations of
     the Company and the Underwriter pursuant to Section 6 shall remain in
     effect, and if any Offered Securities have been purchased hereunder the
     representations and warranties in Section 1 and all obligations under
     Section 4 shall also remain in effect. If this Agreement is terminated
     pursuant to Section 8(a) for any reason other than the occurrence of any
     event specified in clause (iii), (iv), or (v) of Section 5(b), the Company
     will reimburse the Underwriter for all out of pocket expenses (including
     fees and disbursements of counsel) reasonably incurred by them in
     connection with the offering of the Offered Securities.

     9. Notices. All communications hereunder will be in writing and, if sent to

          Re: Activision, Inc.

Dear Sirs:

     The undersigned, a stockholder and an officer and/or director of
Activision, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), understands that
Goldman, Sachs & Co. (the "Underwriter") proposes to enter into an Underwriting
Agreement (the "Underwriting Agreement") with the Company providing for the sale
of shares (the "Offered Securities") of the Company's common stock, par value
$.000001 per share (the "Common Stock"). In recognition of the benefit that such
a sale will confer upon the undersigned as a stockholder and an officer and/or
director of the Company, and for other good and valuable consideration, the
receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the undersigned agrees
with the Underwriter that, during a period of 60 days from the date of the
Underwriting Agreement, the undersigned will not, without the prior written
consent of the Underwriter, directly or indirectly, (i) offer, pledge, sell,
contract to sell, sell any option or contract to purchase, purchase any option
or contract to sell, grant any option, right or warrant for the sale of, or
otherwise dispose of or transfer any shares of the Company's Common Stock or any
securities convertible into or exchangeable or exercisable for Common Stock,
whether now owned or hereafter acquired by the undersigned or with respect to
which the undersigned has or hereafter acquires the power of disposition, or
file any registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended,
with respect to any of the foregoing or (ii) enter into any swap or any other
agreement or any transaction that transfers, in whole or in part, directly or
indirectly, the economic consequence of ownership of the Common Stock, whether
any such swap or transaction is to be settled by delivery of Common Stock or
other securities, in cash or otherwise, except that the foregoing prohibition
shall not apply to sales of Common Stock by employees of the Company pursuant to
Rule 10b5-1 sales plans in effect on the date hereof.

                                                                       Exhibit B

                      FORM OF OPINION OF COMPANY'S COUNSEL
                    TO BE DELIVERED PURSUANT TO SECTION 5(c)

     (1) The Company is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in
good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware, and has all requisite
corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate its properties and carry
on its business as now being conducted. Based solely on a certificate of the
Secretaries of State of the States of California and New York, the Company is
duly qualified to transact business as a foreign corporation and is in good
standing in the States of California and New York, the only jurisdictions in
which the conduct of its business or its ownership or leasing of property
requires such qualification or where the failure to be so qualified would have a
Material Adverse Effect.

     (2) The Company has all necessary corporate power and authority to execute,
deliver and perform its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement. The
Company has taken all necessary corporate action to execute, deliver and perform
its obligations under the Underwriting Agreement, and the Underwriting Agreement
has been validly executed and delivered by, and constitutes the legal, valid and
binding obligation of, the Company, enforceable against it in accordance with
its terms.

     (3) The Firm Securities to be issued pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement
have been duly authorized for issuance to the Underwriter and upon the issuance
and delivery of the Firm Securities and the receipt by the Company of all
consideration therefor in accordance with the terms of the Underwriting
Agreement, the Firm Securities will be validly issued, fully paid and
non-assessable, and free of preemptive rights.

     (4) Each Subsidiary listed on Schedule A attached hereto (the "Material
Domestic Subsidiaries") has been duly incorporated and is validly existing as a
corporation in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its
incorporation, has corporate power and authority to own, lease and operate its
properties and to carry on its business as now being conducted. Based solely on
certificates of the Secretaries of State of the applicable jurisdictions, each
Material Domestic Subsidiary is duly qualified to transact business as a foreign
corporation and is in good standing in each jurisdiction in which the conduct of
its business or its ownership or leasing of property requires such qualification
or where the failure to be so qualified would have a Material Adverse Effect.

     (5) The Company is not required to obtain any consent, approval,
certificate, license, permit, waiver, authorization of, or declaration, filing
or registration with, any governmental authority in connection with or as a
condition to the execution, delivery or performance by the Company of the
Underwriting Agreement or the consummation by the Company of the transactions
contemplated thereby, except for such filings and other actions as may be
required under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or
the rules and regulations thereunder, or as may be required under the securities
or "blue sky" laws of the various states, as to which we express no opinion.

                                       24

     (6) The execution, delivery and performance by the Company of the
Underwriting Agreement, and compliance by it therewith, do not and will not (a)
conflict with, constitute a default under or violate (i) any provision of the
Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation of the Company, as amended, or
the Amended and Restated By-laws of the Company, (ii) any provision of any
material applicable law, rule or regulation, (iii) to our knowledge, any
judgment, order writ, injunction or decree to which it is subject, or (iv) any
material agreement, contract or instrument known to us to which the Company is a
party or by which it is bound, or (b) result in or require the creation or
imposition of any security interest or lien upon any of the Company's properties
pursuant to any material agreement, contract or instrument known to us to which
the Company is a party or by which it is bound. For purposes of the foregoing,
we have assumed that the only material agreements, contracts or instruments to
which the Company is a party are those listed as exhibits to the Company's
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2001 and each of
the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ending
June 30, 2001, September 30, 2001 and December 31, 2001.

     (7) To our knowledge, there is no action, proceeding, investigation or
claim pending or threatened in writing before any court, arbitrator or
administrative agency against the Company that relates to the Underwriting
Agreement or any action taken or to be taken pursuant thereto.

     (8) The Initial Registration Statement is effective under the Securities
Act and, to our knowledge, based solely upon a verbal acknowledgment by the
staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, no stop order suspending the
effectiveness of the Initial Registration Statement has been issued under the
Securities Act or proceedings therefor initiated or threatened by the Securities
and Exchange Commission.

     (9) The Initial Registration Statement and the Prospectus, as of the
Effective Date, (except as to financial statements and related notes, financial,
statistical and accounting data and supporting schedules included or
incorporated by reference therein, as to which we express no opinion), comply as
to form in all material respects with the requirements of the Securities Act and
the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder.

     (10) The Company is not an "investment company" within the meaning of the
Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

     In addition, we have participated in the preparation of the Initial
Registration Statements and the Prospectus and, although we assume no
responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the Initial Registration
Statements or Prospectus, based upon such participation but without independent
review or verification, nothing has come to our attention which causes us to
believe that, (i) at the time the Initial Registration Statement became
effective, such Initial Registration Statement (except as to the financial
statements and related notes, financial, statistical and accounting data and
supporting schedules included or incorporated by reference therein, as to which
we express no opinion) contained any untrue statement of a material fact or
omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to
make the statements therein not misleading, or (ii) at the date of the
Prospectus or at the Closing Date, the Prospectus (except as aforesaid)
contained any untrue statement of a

                                       25

material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated therein
or necessary to make the statements therein, in light of the circumstances under
which they were made, not misleading, or (iii) at the Closing Date, the Initial
Registration Statements (except as aforesaid) contained any untrue statement of
a material fact or omitted to state a material fact required to be stated
therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading.

                   ACTIVISION COMMENCES COMMON STOCK OFFERING

Santa Monica, CA - June 4, 2002 - Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today

announced a firm underwritten public offering of 7,500,000 shares of its common

stock at a price to the public of $33.40 per share. All of the shares are being

offered by the company. Goldman, Sachs & Co. will act as sole underwriter for

the offering.


The company has granted Goldman, Sachs & Co. an over-allotment option to

purchase up to an additional 750,000 shares of its common stock.


The company estimates that the net proceeds from the sale of its common stock in

the offering will be approximately $247,825,000. Assuming the underwriter's

over-allotment option is exercised in full, the company estimates that its net

proceeds from the sale of the over-allotment shares will be approximately

$24,782,500. The company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for

general corporate purposes including among other
 things additions to working

capital and the financing of capital expenditures, joint ventures and/or

strategic acquisitions.


The shares will be issued pursuant to an effective shelf registration statement

that was previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. This

press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an

offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state in

which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration

or qualification under the securities law of any such state.


Headquartered in Santa Monica, California, Activision, Inc. is a leading

worldwide developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment

software products. Activision maintains operations in the U.S. Canada, the

United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Australia and the Netherlands.


The statements contained in this release that are not historical facts are
"forward-looking statements." The Company cautions readers of this press release
that a number of important factors could cause Activision's actual future
results to differ materially from those expressed in any such forward-looking
statements. These important factors, and other factors that could affect
Activision, are described in the prospectus filed as part of the company's
registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-74460) filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on December 4, 2001 and in Activision's
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2001, which was
filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Readers of this press release
are referred to such filings.

                       ACTIVISION DISCUSSES STOCK OFFERING


Santa Monica, Ca - June 4, 2002 - Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today

announced that the company will use the proceeds from its previously announced

stock offering to take advantage of the growth opportunities that it expects

will be afforded by the rapidly growing worldwide installed base of new console

and hand-held video game systems. Activision expects the closing of this

transaction to take place on June 7, 2002.


Activision also reaffirmed its previously increased fiscal year 2003

financial guidance, including the increased number of shares to be outstanding

after the offering. Based on the overall strength of the video game industry,

strong market performance of its titles globally and anticipated use of proceeds

from the offering, the company expects earnings per share of $1.10 on net

revenues of $890 million.


"This offering is yet another step in our strategy
 to enable us to continue our

role as a leading player in the interactive entertainment industry," states

Robert Kotick, Chairman and CEO, Activision, Inc. "We remain confident about the

positive outlook for our business over this current cycle and future cycles. We

take a long-term perspective with respect to capital usage and we expect that

this offering will afford us financial flexibility for many fiscal years by

allowing us to continue building our operating capability while enhancing

shareholder value."


Funds raised from the offering will be used to acquire product development

resources and intellectual property rights. Kotick continued, "We believe that

during past growth phases, independent companies that consolidated the most

valuable assets and relationships gained the most strength during growth cycles.

We plan to assess all opportunities against the main goal of increasing our

profitability while adding to core strategic capabilities. Adding greater

financial flexibility to our management team, scale and product visibility will,

we believe, take Activision to the next level."


Headquartered in Santa Monica, California, Activision, Inc. is a leading

worldwide developer, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment and

leisure products. Founded in 1979, Activision posted revenues of $786 million

for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2002.


Activision maintains operations in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, France,

Germany, Japan, Australia, and the Netherlands. More information about

Activision and its products can be found on the company's World Wide Web site,
