Looks like Sony are trying to put the brakes on it as well. This should be interesting to watch unfold.

It's going to happen more often. Especially once Doom and Elder Scrolls goes completely exclusive. Microsoft is opening themselves up to one hell of an anti trust lawsuit.

LOL.

No. This is exactly why stuff like this takes time. Because it can't advance until all of that is checked out

And the deal is pretty much dead at this point. With the UK, EU, and now the US against the deal Microsoft can forget it.

I knew it wouldn't go through. Activision has way too many IPs with Sony and Nintendo where Microsoft would be given unfair advantage.

Yeah there's a ways to go yet but I'm enjoying watching each side flail wildly in the meantime. Today's fun tidbit was Microsoft trying to downplay the importance of the Bethesda acquisition saying games like Elder Scrolls fall into a niche category. Meanwhile the biggest selling CoD title sold the same amount as Skyrim

Microsoft is so pathetic in it's defense. They keep acting like they are a small indie studio with garbage IPs that aren't worth the dirt you walk on.

Like come ooooooon Microsoft

I mean they're sorta right, CoD really is a garbage IP that hasn't done anything unique or game changing in decades

Except they're right in what they stated which is not what you're saying.

The thing is, they are right. The argument might be dumb, but it's a counter argument to another dumb argument. Sony is suddenly putting CoD in a pedestal igoring the fact that their biggest bulk of game sales actually come form their exclusives - and it's ironic how Sony is afraid Microsft will start doing something they already do themselves, such as pioneering the game prices increase among other questionable industry moves
