     Item 5. Other Events and Required FD Disclosure

     Activision recently was 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, the SEC
submitted to Activision a request for information. The SEC staff also informed
Activision that other companies in the video game industry received similar
requests for information. The SEC has advised Activision that this request for
information should not be construed as an indication from the SEC or its staff
that any violation of the law has occurred, nor should it reflect negatively on
any person, entity or security. Activision intends to cooperate fully with the
SEC in the conduct of this inquiry.


     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
