The big news out of Microsoft today is, obviously, its acquisition of Activision Blizzard for the nominal fee of, oh, a small country’s GDP. The immediate impact here means major Activision-published behemoths like Call of Duty and Overwatch will become first-party games under Microsoft’s ever-growing purview, with much of the publisher’s backlog coming to Xbox Game Pass. But Microsoft’s unstoppable games-on-demand service continues to grow outside of country-seized acquisitions. Here’s everythi

Sony shares tumbled 13% on Wednesday (January 19). That as investors weigh up a big new challenge from Microsoft. The U.S. giant is buying game maker Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion. That will give it control of blockbuster games including the "Call of Duty" series.The deal suggests Microsoft is bulking up on content as gaming moves from consoles to online platforms, including its own Game Pass service. Wedbush Securities MD Michael Pachter: "Sony are big losers because, you know, some of this content is not going to be a PlayStation in the future."Sony has long been seen as the market leader in consoles. It's also strengthened its list of in-house games, including hits like the Spider-Man franchise. And the PlayStation is a major source of revenue for Activision, potentially complicating the Microsoft deal. Michael Pachter again: "It's an open question whether the regulators will allow Microsoft to exclude PlayStation from the mix. And that's the part that could be an impediment to the deal getting done there."Long-term, both Sony and Microsoft have an eye on new rivals like Apple, Amazon and Facebook. They all see games moving away from bulky consoles, to become a purely online experience. The winner then will be the one with the best content, not the best hardware.
Shares in Japan's Sony Group fell 9% on Wednesday after gaming rival Microsoft said it will buy developer Activision Blizzard in a record $68.7 billion deal for the industry. While Sony's PlayStation is widely seen as having a lead in the generational battle with Microsoft's Xbox, the purchase of the "Call of Duty" maker comes as Microsoft is aggressively expanding its Game Pass subscription service. Sony has strengthened its network of in-house games studios in recent year and delivered a string of exclusive hits including in its "Spider-man" franchise, with Microsoft left playing catch-up.
Sony Group, perched atop the gaming sector, is facing a fresh challenge from cash-rich rivals betting on a next-generation online video game boom as the Japanese conglomerate eyes expansion on multiple fronts, including electric cars. Microsoft Corp, a laggard in the generational console battle with Sony, took a major step to position itself for the "metaverse" - a proposed immersive experience where people game, shop and socialise online - with a $69 billion deal for "Call of Duty" developer Activision Blizzard. Sony's shares slumped 13% on Wednesday amid concern Activision titles would be pulled from PlayStation systems.
