All this is going to create is divide between gamers of the franchises between well Sony - not allot of activation on Nintendo and PC = MS anyway. Also a buyout of 67.8 Bill is not a joke, this is huge compared to the Bathesda buy. 2023 is going to be interesting...
I think there is a bigger story then just GamePass and franchises on this buy-out. Activision has been looking for buyers. Value in a company like Activision is huge and with franchises /studios inside of them would make a large change to platform availability. I personally dont think Sony/Nintendo or those would buy, as they both have levels of quality they maintain. Both of them also have 1st party franchises that people buy systems for.
@Tea: I'm personally against platforms buying HUGE publishers. Gives them too much power.
I don't want Sony, Ninty or MS to do this. So I disagree with people saying Sony should buy Square, Capcom, ect.
@Coffe - Ideally its best to own both, but as a newcomer gamer, Xbox is definitely the more attractive offer for them now...Game pass has just too many games under Game pass and with all their studios, to just ignore the value there.
