Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 12, 2005, Activision, Inc. (the "Company") announced the
appointment of Thomas Tippl as Chief Financial Officer and Director of
Activision Publishing, Inc. ("Activision Publishing"), the Company's only direct
operating subsidiary and the holding company for all other active subsidiaries.

Mr. Tippl will begin the transition into his new position as Chief Financial
Officer of Activision Publishing beginning October 2005. In connection with his
new position, Mr. Tippl entered into an employment agreement for a term of five
years. The agreement provides for an annual base salary of $450,000 and for
annual minimum base salary increases of 4%, and permits additional increases in
the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors or Compensation Committee of
the Board. Mr. Tippl is also entitled to receive an annual discretionary bonus
of up to 75% of the amount of his base salary based on achievement of objectives
to be determined. The bonus may be paid, in the sole discretion of the
Compensation Committee, in cash, shares of the Company's common stock, or
options to purchase the Company's common stock.

Mr. Tippl will be paid a signing bonus of $100,000 and granted an option to
purchase an aggregate of 600,000 shares of the Company's common stock in three
tranches of 200,000 options each. The first tranche of 200,000 options will vest
ratably over five years, with 20% beginning in 2006. The second tranche of
200,000 options will vest on September 30, 2010, subject to accelerated vesting
if Mr. Tippl achieves certain performance objectives to be determined. The third
tranche of 200,000 options will vest on September 30, 2010. All of the options
will have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of the Company's
stock on the date of grant. In consideration for abandoning certain long term
compensation, pension benefits and related equity participations, Mr. Tippl will
also be granted a number of shares of restricted stock equal to $1,500,000
divided by the fair market value on the date of grant. Such shares of restricted
stock will vest ratably on September 30, 2008, September 30, 2009, and September
30, 2010.

Mr. Tippl 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

to ensure a smooth transition. Mr. Chardavoyne will continue to receive his base
salary, annual bonus and benefits through his retirement date in accordance with
