I think so? Not sure why a 4 year old game is getting such a fuss.

Kinda reminds me of the Hunger Games. A bit of bait to lure anyone out into the open, and then…

Feels like this represents MS offering CoD deals to Sony to shut up about the Acti-Bliz deal, and they turned around and also offered it to Nintendo just to show it wasn’t monopolistic or something like that.

I love how a company gets caught doing something monopolistic and they then they try to avoid any repercussions by doing what they ought to have previously. The anti-monopoly statues should contain hammering any company that does stuff (such as trying to get control of a vast amount of IP when they already are a huge titan) and nobody should be able to say ‘Well, we didn’t think of that…’ as an excuse – at those levels of management and direction, they darn well knew or should have and either case should result in serious sanctions and fines.

The only thing going for Nintendo is it’s IP if they sold there IP on all consoles and PC pretty much not many people would buy there switches now especially when portables like the Steam deck are much more accessible.

It’s Sony that needs to keep winning as Playstation forms as much as a third of Sony’s income where Microsoft Xbox profits is like money down the back of the sofa
