Kotick vs. Riccitiello: who's the richest?

Clue: EA boss only has two helicopters.

Activision Blizzard paid Bobby Kotick more than double what EA paid John Riccitiello last year.

The super-publisher bossmen both racked up LITERALLY millions of dollars.

But while silver-haired fox John "Ricci Rich" Riccitiello took home just $6.4m his opposite and rival number Bobby Kotick bagged $15m, according to Forbes.

The bubbly brunette stands to make even more as titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and DJ Hero steam into the market this autumn - not to mention the other Guitar Hero games and World of Warcraft.
