It has become really difficult to update you on the dispute between Microsoft and Sony, because every day the two companies update their positions and make a new one .
After the attempted acquisition of the Call of Duty publisher, with Modern Warfare 2 always available on Amazon at the best price, the tech world went wild against Microsoft.
The fulcrum is always the same, namely the ownership of the shooter franchise which is undoubtedly the most important of the Activision Blizzard package, for which Microsoft has shown itself willing to give.
And just in these hours he gave a demonstration, declaring that will work to bring Call of Duty even to Nintendo platforms in the future.
Microsoft, Sony, Activision and Call of Duty are the entities involved in this story that seems truly endless, due to at least one of these.
As VGC reports, in fact, Microsoft has expressed itself regarding the behavior of PlayStation in this matter with very harsh terms.
Phil Spencer in fact stated that Sony is showing little willingness in wanting to sit at the negotiating table to reach an agreement for the acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft.
PlayStation has in fact always been focusing on the fact that Call of Duty exclusively for Xbox would be too high an economic damage. Enough to attack Microsoft and criticize its strategy.
This despite the fact that the Redmond house has shown that it can be very open instead. For this reason Phil Spencer spoke about the situation, to the microphones of Bloomberg:
“There was one participant in the gaming industry that really raised all the objections, and that’s Sony, and they’ve been quite public about the things that don’t meet their expectations. From where we sit, it’s clear they’re spending more time with regulators than us trying to get this deal done.”
Microsoft has in fact proposed an agreement to Sony some time ago, which has only recently been made official, and in general has declared that it has no intention of creating a monopoly:
“Our intent is to become more relevant across more platforms. We have a good idea of how to build a win-win relationship with Nintendo and, frankly, Sony.”
We’ll see how the story ends which, at this point, is becoming truly gigantic. The most important are involved in all of this, i.e. the regulatory bodies, which continue to work on the agreement.
