The unreasonably high proposal by Microsoft to acquire Activision Blizzard has led to a drawn-out and difficult period of discussions. Without going into too much detail, the short version of this is that Sony is attempting to block the purchase, while Xbox, of course, is urging regulators to approve it. The most recent assertions have been made public, and according to Microsoft, Sony’s first-party work is superior than its own.
The business argues that because Sony has more exclusive titles, it doesn’t have require games like Call of Duty to be successful. Microsoft claims that many of Sony’s first-party games are higher quality than its own creations, despite this. To put it another way, the company has admitted in writing that its own games fall short of those produced by Sony.
Apparently “equal in size to Activision and roughly double the size of Microsoft’s game publishing company,” the article continues by referring to Sony as “the dominating console provider” and a “strong games publisher.”
It is merely one of numerous refutations to Sony’s own account regarding the entire song and dance (which, by the way, makes allusions to the inevitable PS6). To try and secure this deal, Microsoft is at pains to show out that Sony will be OK without Call of Duty, framing itself as the underdog while making the aforementioned arguments. All of this is very taxing, don’t you think?
