Since Microsoft announced that it would acquire Activision Blizzard, SONY has often objected on the grounds of "monopolizing the industry" and "damaging the interests of players". In recent days, it has become more and more fierce, and even refused to sign a cooperation agreement related to the acquisition with Microsoft.
Recently, Industry analyst Michael Pachter gives his perspective.
Michael Pachter says,Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard wouldn't hurt gamers. It would hurt SONY itself, which is why SONY is sticking to its guns.
Pachter argues that a $15-a-month XGPU would have been a better deal than buying a new console, a new Call of Duty game, and a PS Plus/Xbox Gold membership.
Therefore, Once Microsoft acquires Activision Blizzard, SONY is likely to lose some potential players.
These players will be primarily Call of Duty campaign mode players who may have previously purchased the full Call of Duty game, but will only be able to subscribe to XGP for one month after the acquisition.
That's obviously bad for SONY, but it's a good thing for gamers.
