                                PROXY STATEMENT
     for a Special Meeting of Stockholders to be held on December [  ], 2003

GENERAL

This Proxy Statement is furnished in connection with the solicitation by the
Board of Directors (the "Board" or "Board of Directors") of Activision, Inc., a
Delaware corporation (the "Company"), of proxies from the holders (the
"Stockholders") of the Company's issued and outstanding shares of common stock,
$.000001 par value per share (the "Common Stock"), to be used at a Special
Meeting of Stockholders to be held on [ ], December [ ], 2003, at the offices of
Bryan Cave LLP, 120 Broadway, Suite 300, Santa Monica, California 90401, at 9:00
a.m., local time, and at any adjournment or postponement of such meeting (the
"Special Meeting"), for the purposes set forth in the accompanying Notice of
Special Meeting of Stockholders. This Proxy Statement and enclosed proxy card
are first being mailed to the Stockholders of the Company on or about November [
], 2003.

RECORD DATE AND QUORUM

Stockholders of record at the close of business on December 1, 2003 are entitled
to notice of, and to vote at, the Special Meeting. On the record date there are
expected to be approximately 88,879,345 shares of Common Stock of the Company
outstanding. Each share of Common Stock outstanding on the record date is
entitled to one vote on the matter presented for action at the Special Meeting.
Shares of Common Stock were the only voting securities of the Company
outstanding on the record date. A majority of the outstanding shares of Common
Stock must be present in person or by proxy at the Special Meeting in order for
a quorum to be present. Abstentions and broker non-votes are included for
purposes of determining whether a quorum is present at the Special Meeting.

REQUIRED VOTES

The affirmative vote of a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of
the Company is required for approval of the proposed amendment to the Company's
Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended, to increase the
number of shares of authorized Common Stock (the "Proposal"). Abstentions and
broker non-votes will have the effect of a vote "AGAINST". A broker "non-vote"
occurs when a nominee holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a
particular proposal because the nominee does not have discretionary voting power
with respect to that item and has not received instructions from the beneficial
owner.

In the event that sufficient votes in favor of the proposal are not received by
the date of the Special Meeting, the Chairman of the Special Meeting may propose
one or more adjournments of the Special Meeting to permit further solicitations
of proxies. Any such adjournment will require the affirmative vote of the
holders of a majority of the shares in person or by proxy at the Special
Meeting.

PROXIES

Whether or not you are able to attend the Special Meeting, you are urged to
complete, sign and return your proxy card. The Common Stock represented by all
properly executed proxy cards received by the Company prior to the Special
Meeting, and not revoked, will be voted at the Special Meeting as directed in
the signed proxy. If no directions are specified, such proxies shall be voted
FOR the Proposal. Any Stockholder may revoke or change its proxy at any time
before the proxy is voted at the Special Meeting by (i) sending another properly
executed proxy bearing a later date or a written notice of revocation of the
proxy to the Secretary of the Company at the Company's principal executive
offices or (ii) voting in person at the Special Meeting.

COSTS OF PROXY SOLICITATION

The Company will bear the entire cost of this proxy solicitation, including the
preparation, assembly, printing and mailing of this Proxy Statement, the proxy
and any additional solicitation materials sent by the Company to Stockholders.
In addition, the Company may reimburse brokerage firms and other persons
representing beneficial owners of shares of Common Stock for their expenses in
forwarding the proxy materials to such beneficial owners. Proxies may be
solicited by Directors, officers and regular employees of the Company, without
additional compensation, personally or by telephone.

PROPOSAL

Approval of Amendment to Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as
Amended, to Increase Authorized Shares

The Stockholders are being asked to approve an amendment to the Company's
Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (the
"Certificate"), to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock from
125,000,000 to 225,000,000. The Board in November 2003 adopted resolutions
approving and authorizing the amendment and directing that the amendment be
submitted to a vote of the Stockholders at a Special Meeting. The Board
determined that the amendment is in the best interests of the Company and its
Stockholders and unanimously recommends approval by the Stockholders. If the
proposed amendment is approved by the Stockholders, the Board currently intends
to file with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware a Certificate of
Amendment to the Certificate reflecting such amendment as soon as practicable
following Stockholder approval.

At the Company's 2003 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, a proposal was made to
increase the authorized shares of Common Stock. The proposal also provided for
an increase in the number of authorized shares of Series A Junior Preferred
Stock. That proposal was not approved. The Proposal submitted at this Special
Meeting provides only for an amendment to the Certificate to increase the
authorized shares of Common Stock. It does not include any change to the
Preferred Stock or the Series A Junior Preferred Stock.

The Certificate currently authorizes the issuance of up to 130,000,000 shares of
stock, of which 125,000,000 shares are designated as Common Stock and 5,000,000
shares are designated as Preferred Stock. Of the 5,000,000 shares of Preferred
Stock authorized, 1,250,000 shares have been designated as Series A Junior
Preferred Stock. No shares of Preferred Stock or Series A Junior Preferred Stock
are issued and outstanding. The proposed amendment will not, if adopted, result
in an increase in the number of authorized shares of Series A Junior Preferred
Stock or an increase in the total number of authorized shares of Preferred
Stock. Of the 125,000,000 shares of Common Stock currently authorized, as of the
close of business on November 4, 2003, there were 88,676,227 shares issued and
outstanding. In addition, as of November 4, 2003, the Company has reserved up to
approximately 112,500 shares of Common Stock for issuance upon the exercise of
outstanding warrants, 579,800 shares of Common Stock for issuance pursuant to
the Company's employee stock purchase plans and 20,987,600 shares of Common
Stock for issuance pursuant to the Company's current incentive compensation
plans and programs.

The Board of Directors has proposed this amendment to ensure that the Company
has sufficient shares available for general corporate purposes including,
without limitation, equity financings, acquisitions, establishing strategic
relationships with corporate partners, providing equity incentives to employees,
and payments of stock dividends, stock splits or other recapitalizations. The
Company recently completed the payment of a stock dividend in the form of a
three-for-two stock split, which significantly increased the number of shares of
Common Stock outstanding and the number reserved for issuance, thus
necessitating the need to increase the number of authorized shares of the
Company. The Company considers from time to time acquisitions, equity
financings, strategic relationships and other transactions as market conditions
or other opportunities arise. The Company's management has no present
arrangements, agreements, understandings or plans for the issuance or use of the
additional shares of Common Stock proposed to be authorized by the amendment.

If the Stockholders approve the proposed amendment, the Board may cause the
issuance of additional shares of Common Stock without further vote of the
Stockholders of the Company, except as may be required in particular cases by
the Company's charter documents, applicable law or the rules of any national
securities exchange on which shares of Common Stock of the Company may then be
listed. Under the Company's Certificate, the Company's Stockholders do not have
preemptive rights to subscribe to additional securities that may be issued by
the Company, which means that current Stockholders do not have a prior right to
purchase any new issue of capital stock of the Company in order to maintain
their proportionate ownership of Common Stock. In addition, if the Board elects
to cause the Company to issue additional shares of Common Stock or securities

                                      -4-

convertible into or exercisable for Common Stock, such issuance could have a
dilutive effect on the voting power and earnings per share of existing
Stockholders.

The increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock could have an
anti-takeover effect, although this is not the intent of the Board in proposing
the amendment. For example, if the Board issues additional shares in the future,
such issuance could dilute the voting power of a person seeking control of the
Company, thereby deterring or rendering more difficult a merger, tender offer,
proxy contest or an extraordinary transaction opposed by the Board of Directors.
As of the date of this Proxy Statement, the Board is not aware of any attempt or
plan to obtain control of the Company.

If approved, the amendment would amend and restate Article Fourth of the
Certificate as follows:

     "FOURTH: The total number of shares of capital stock which the Corporation
     shall have authority to issue is two hundred and thirty million
     (230,000,000) shares, of which five million (5,000,000) shares are
     designated Preferred Stock, par value $.000001 per share and aggregate par
     value of five dollars ($5.00) ("Preferred Stock"), and of which two hundred
     twenty-five million (225,000,000) shares are designated Common Stock, par
     value $.000001 per share and aggregate par value of two hundred twenty-five
     dollars ($225.00) ("Common Stock"). Of the 5,000,000 shares of Preferred
     Stock, one million one hundred and twenty-five thousand (1,125,000) shares
     are designated Series A Junior Preferred Stock, par value $.000001 per
     share and aggregate par value of one dollar and one hundred twenty-five
     thousandth cents ($1.125)."

The affirmative vote of a majority of the outstanding shares of Common Stock is
required for approval of the proposed amendment.

         The Board recommends that you vote FOR the proposed Amendment
     to the Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended.

STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS FOR 2004 ANNUAL MEETING

Pursuant to Rule 14a-8 under the Exchange Act, Stockholders may present proper
proposals for inclusion in the Company's proxy statement and for consideration
at the 2004 Annual Meeting of Stockholders by submitting their proposals to the
Company in a timely manner. In order to be so included for the next Annual
Meeting, Stockholder proposals must be received by the Company no later than
March 29, 2004 and must otherwise comply with the requirements of Rule 14a-8.

In addition, the Company's By-laws have an advance notice procedure with regard
to nominations for the election of directors and business proposals to be
brought before an Annual Meeting of Stockholders by any Stockholder. In general,
any Stockholder may nominate one or more persons for election as directors or
propose business to be brought before an annual meeting, or both, only if such
Stockholder has given timely notice in proper written form of such nomination or
nominations or business proposal, setting forth certain specified information
relating to such Stockholder and his or her nominations or business proposal. To
be timely, notice must be received by the Company's Secretary at least 60 (but
not more than 90) days before the Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held in
2004; provided, however, that if less than 70 days' notice or prior public
disclosure of the date of the 2004 Annual Meeting is given or made to
Stockholders, notice by the Stockholder to be timely must be so received not
later than the close of business on the 10th day following the day on which
notice of the date of the 2004 Annual Meeting was mailed or such public
disclosure was made, whichever occurs first. We currently plan to hold our 2004
Annual Meeting of Stockholders in September 2004.

The Board of Directors knows of no matters other than those described in this
Proxy Statement that are likely to come before the Special Meeting.

On July 11, 2003, we were informed by the staff of the Securities and Exchange
Commission (the "SEC") that the SEC has commenced a non-public formal
investigation captioned "In the Matter of Certain Video Game Manufacturers and
Distributors". The investigation appears to be focused on certain accounting
practices common to the interactive entertainment industry, with specific
emphasis on revenue recognition. In connection with this inquiry, in July 2003,
the SEC submitted to us a request for information. We responded to this on
September 2, 2003. The SEC staff also informed us that other companies in the
video game industry received similar requests for information. We have
cooperated and intend to continue to cooperate fully with the SEC in the conduct
of this inquiry.

       STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO FORWARD THEIR PROXY CARDS WITHOUT DELAY.
                 A PROMPT RESPONSE WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

                                        By Order of the Board of Directors,

                                        /s/ George L. Rose
