Her request was reportedly stewed over for a minute in private, until an EA rep re-emerged on the public show floor. He then explained that senior management had been consulted about the Activision chief's request, but that "it would not be possible".

Good. Tell that slimey jerk's errand-girl to pound sand.
Her: "Bobby wants to see what a game ona new engine looks like, cos he's never seen that done before."
EA: "Yeah? Tell Bobby that he better come up with some new killstreaks and some brain-activity sensors for his guns...."
Her: "I don't understand."
EA: "Go get Bobby his frappacino and tell him No."
