On June 16, 2005, Activision, Inc. (the "Company") announced the appointment of
Michael J. Griffith as President and Chief Executive Officer of Activision
Publishing, Inc. ("Activision Publishing"), the Company's only direct operating
subsidiary and the holding company for all other active subsidiaries. Mr.
Griffith assumes this position from Ronald Doornink, who has served as the
President of Activision Publishing since 2000 and as President and Chief
Executive Officer of Activision Publishing since March of 2002. Mr. Doornink
will now serve as Chairman of Activision Publishing in addition to his
continuing roles with the Company.

On June 15, 2005, Mr. Griffith entered into an employment agreement with
Activision Publishing and Mr. Doornink's employment agreement with Activision
Publishing was amended to provide for his new role with Activision Publishing.

Mr. Griffith's employment agreement, effective June 15, 2005, is for a term of
five years and provides for an annual base salary of $600,000. The agreement
provides for annual minimum base salary increases of 8% and permits additional
increases in the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors or Compensation
Committee of the Board. Mr. Griffith is also entitled to receive an annual
discretionary bonus of up to the amount of his base salary based on achievement
of agreed upon objectives. The bonus may be paid, in the sole discretion of the
Committee, in cash, shares of the Company's common stock, or options to purchase
the Company's common stock.

As an inducement to enter into the employment agreement, Mr. Griffith was
granted an option to purchase an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of the Company's
common stock in two tranches of 350,000 options each and one tranche of 300,000
options. The first tranche of 350,000 options will vest ratably over five years,
with 20% beginning in 2006. The second tranche of 350,000 options will vest on
June 30, 2010, subject to accelerated vesting if Mr. Griffith achieves certain
performance objectives to be agreed upon. The third tranche of 300,000 options
will vest on June 30, 2010. All of the options have an exercise price equal to
$17.12 per share, the fair market value of the Company's stock on the date of
grant. Mr. Griffith was also granted 116,822 shares of restricted stock, which
will vest ratably on June 30, 2008, June 30, 2009, and June 30, 2010. In the
event that on May 15, 2010, Mr. Griffith's total compensation plus any severance
payments received by him has not exceeded $20 million, Activision Publishing
will pay Mr. Griffith the shortfall. Total compensation for this purpose
includes his cumulative base salary, cumulative annual bonuses, the realized and
unrealized gains from any and all stock options issued to him, the market value
of all restricted stock grants issued to him plus the amounts realized by him
from the sale of any such restricted stock. This payment is to be made unless
Mr. Griffith's employment has been terminated for certain reasons specified in
his employment agreement.

Mr. Griffith is also entitled to severance payments in the event his employment
is terminated for certain reasons. The employment agreement contains other
provisions that are customary in the employment agreements of similarly situated
