Disney is evaluating the prospect of buying a large game publisher, and EA is the most realistic choice after Activision Blizzard was pre-empted by Microsoft.
Long after it was rumored that Microsoft had launched the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, EA was also looking for sales or mergers and acquisitions. Disney's think-tank team urged CEO Bob & middot; Iger to transform from game IP licensee to game publisher, and buying a game head company is the most realistic option.
EA has been very close to Disney in recent years, releasing not only Lucas licensed Star Wars games, but also Marvel licenses last year to develop Iron Man and Black Panther games. EA's current CEO Drew & middot; Wilson last year refuted rumors that the company was seeking a bid for sale:
& ldquo; grapevine news is not worth refuting, (Activision-Blizzard commissioned by Microsoft) We will soon become the leading independent publisher and developer in the global gaming industry, this position is very rare. Games are becoming the core entertainment of Generation Z and Alpha, and we have a bright future as an independent publisher. & rdquo
It is widely believed that EA is also looking to acquire other companies (the so-called promising), and the company will not consider a takeover until it hits the wall and sees no hope of acquisition.
Some players commented that EA should seek to merge with Ubisoft, and then use the Unity game engine to build the status of the top restaurant in the industry. The notoriety has deterred all major forces and protected the hundred-year-old industry from being touched.
In addition, Sony finally unveiled the shape and price of the thin PS5, which costs $450 for a digital version without a CD-ROM drive, $500 for a CD-ROM drive, and $80 for an optical drive module that fits with the body:
The body size of the thin PS5 is 30% less than that of the old model, and the weight is reduced by 24%. The outer panel is divided into four independent faces, the side (bottom) is reserved for light drive, the front is provided with two USB-C ports (one of which is the 10Gbps high-speed port), and the back is provided with two 10Gbps USB- A ports, and the internal SSD capacity is increased from 825GB to 1TB.
The new PS5 will be launched in North America and Sony's official website in November. Sony said that after the old model is sold out, only the new model (up $50) is available on the market, with an additional charge of $30 to fit the new PS5 stand.
In addition, Sony also plans to launch the "Modern Warfare 3" PS5 bundle package, which comes with a Lockpick Operator Pack warrior bag in addition to the game book.
The DLC, an exclusive DLC for PlayStation, will be launched on the day of the game's release, providing AMRican Gothic weapons blueprints and Starry Knife melee weapons blueprints in addition to character skin. PS4/PS5 players who pre-order Modern Warfare 3 can get the DLC for free, while players on other platforms won't have a chance to get the DLC until November.
