Microsoft said in a document submitted to the Brazilian Economic Protection Administrative Committee (Cade) on August 9: "Microsoft's ability to continue expanding Game Pass has been hindered by Sony,Sony pays for 'blockade right' to prevent developers from adding content to Game Pass and other competitive subscription services”。

It is unclear what Microsoft refers to the specifics here, because the contract for publishing games is often more complicated, especially when it involves the rights of streaming media and subscribing services. Therefore, Sony may only pay exclusive rights for its streaming media services, or it may have clauses in some publishing contracts to prevent some games published by Sony to publish in the subscription service of competitors.

In addition, Microsoft stated in the document: "Considering that exclusive games have always been Sony's strategic core of strengthening its position in the game industry, and Sony as the leader in the field of digital game distribution. Worry". And Microsoft said that Sony "does not want attractive subscription services to threaten its dominant position in the number of host game digital distribution markets. In other words, Sony opposes the emergence of new profit models that can challenge its business model."

This reveals Sony's fear of the new industry model, indicating that the Xbox Game Pass provides players with high -quality content strategies at low prices, threatening Sony's leadership position for many years of equipment -centered and exclusive strategies.

The IT House learned that Sony submitted opposition to Brazil's regulatory agency last month on Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard. In addition, in order to "make a stumbling" to Microsoft Xbox, Sony said that he could not make games comparable to the "Call of Duty" of the Activalers, in order to oppose Microsoft XBOX $ 68.7 billion to acquire Activision Blizzard transactions.
