So how have you worked out Sony is no.1?Correction: I support corporate consolidation that doesn’t have negative effects on consumers or the industry.
Even without those hypothetical acquisitions Sony have the most expensive consoles already, even before they recently increased prices, do not offer their games day one on their subscription service, and take at least 6 months to port them to PC.
In comparison, Microsoft are well away from the top of the market, so this acquisition is about having a stronger competitor to first place, rather than a stronger first place at the expense of second and third. That is increased competition in the market.
MS have cheaper consoles, offer their games day one on their subscription service and PC.
Xbox consoles / gamepass is the cheapest, best value way to play games this generation, and we should allow that service to improve. The same can not be said for Playstation.
Ok, Sony and Google then.
There’s a reason why only Sony and Google oppose the deal, and everyone else either doesn’t care or wants it to go through.
Why do you think the union body representing industry workers wants it to go ahead?
Why do you think no other companies have made a fuss?
In console sales and profit Nintendo is no.1
In revenue Tencent is no.1
