    Video game maker Activision Blizzard posted higher earnings and revenue in the fourth quarter, surpassing Wall Street’s expectations. It set a fourth-quarter earnings record of 31 cents per diluted share, which was up from 8 cents per share a year ago. “We are very pleased to report that Activision Blizzard delivered the best performance in its history,’’ said CEO Bobby Kotick. It had the number one and number three best-selling video games, Call of Duty and Skylanders, for the year.
