The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.

In today's edition, Eric and Jeremy look at Activision Blizzard heading into the holiday season. The company is riding high off the successful launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but other ominous signs like a falling World of Warcraft subscriber count has held its share price back in recent months. Eric thinks the company could have potential as a broader entertainment company, and he advises investors to pay close attention to opportunities like Call of Duty Elite, a service that creates strong add-on revenue after the initial game sale.

Like many other industries, one of the greatest threats to gaming companies is investors shifting their gaming dollars to the mobile world. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has a just released free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market. In the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but also name the company at the forefront of the trend.
