They will still be exclusives. Maybe those very IPs. We simply won't know until it happens.Activision Blizzard felt like a stupidly huge deal imo, at least until they said their games would still be multiplats. Att first people expected Call of Duty and Diablo to be exclusive to Xbox.
Maybe there was an already way higher conversation about Playstation due to the common bigger success in social media, bigger userbase, having several top exclusives this past quarter plus Elen Ring, and the acquisition multiplied by a smaller number the existing conversation about PS. Meanwhile in MS maybe the acquisition had a bigger impact and multiplied the conversation about Xbox more, but the starting point was pretty lower.
I mean, maybe the ABK acquisition shaked the MS community proportionally more than the Bungie one did, but the PS community is way higher and more active, so even if the bump was proportionally smaller the total number may have been higher in the PS side.
It's the only way I could explain this, because it's really hard to believe. The acquisition had a record cost, ABK is the biggest 3rd party publisher and CoD is top.
Could be on to something there. Sony is about quality. Even there less well received games still get rated as good. People may be more excited to see what Bungie does under them.Really? My god.
Thats really something. Maybe Sony has simply done a better job with their studios that when they make a purchase, people wonder about what they will put out, where MS doesn't have a great history with purchasing teams tbh, but even so...MS buying one of the biggest 3rd parties in gaming NOT having more discussion then Sony buying Bungie might really show its the quality of the publisher and not the quantity.
or maybe I just don't know Twitter that well and someone can talk about something more and it has little merit or something lol
Destiny is average and was a hot mess. Had none of the magic old bungie/halo had.
There's always new console war ammo being crafted, just like best publisher of the year was never cared about until last year... I wonder whyOf all the cope threads I’ve seen recently about the Microsoft / Activision deal, this has to be the strangest.
Since when did anyone on this site use ‘Twitter activity’ as a positive metric for anything game related?
my dude woke up and chose violenceBecause Bungie is better than anything that came out of recent Activision/Blizzard
They’re doing everything they can to get the acquisition approved and that can’t be back-tracked later from my understanding, if they say games will still come to PS now then that’s what’ll happen later too, I think they’ll use Activision Blizzard the same way as Mojang, it’s what bring in the most money.They will still be exclusives. Maybe those very IPs. We simply won't know until it happens.
What is shown is tweets that were generally about gaming. From the data you can't tell what people were talking about, you can only deduce by the timing.
Really Surprised Final Fantasy is tweetedmore than Minecraft and Elden Ring
Just wanna throw out a crazy theory for fun . . .
What if Sony is buying Xbox Game Studios . . . wait for it . . .
What if MS Games with Activision and Bethesda will become 3rd party, while selling off the devs under the Xbox Game Studios brand. Mind blown! Even though I think i'm 110% wrong! heh
Doesn't really tell you anything.
If ps plus is so popular how come no one ever talks about it? Yet people won't shut up about game pass. Therefore game pass is more popular
It's simple maths. Game pass is really popular. Look at all the talk about it. This Spartacus thing has generated the most talk about ps plus, ever. And it's not even positive talk. If it delivers on what people want it might become as popular as game pass
