As British government agencies investigate Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard further, SONY has begun issuing statements to prevent the deal from going ahead.
According to a SONY source,Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service already has 29 million users and is expected to grow significantly in the future, while SONY's own PlayStation Plus service lags far behind.
In its announcement, SONY tried to portray itself as a player. The underdog. , hoping to win approval from regulators and block Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
In fact,SONY's PS Plus service is also less attractive to gamers than Microsoft's XGP service.
Unlike Microsoft, which has put all of its first-party games in the XGP library, as well as a large number of third-party games, SONY offers a number of third-party games for the PS Plus membership library, but not many first-party games.
What's more, SONY officials have said that first-party games will not be added to the PS Plus library at the time of release,This makes sense commercially, but it's also much less popular with players.
