Microsoft claim Sony are paying to keep games off of Xbox Game Pass
 

 
amp;s=19
Microsoft has claimed Sony pays for “blocking rights” to stop developers from adding their content to Xbox Game Pass. The explosive claims are part of documents (Word doc) filed with Brazil’s national competition regulator and part of a review of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

“Microsoft’s ability to continue expanding Game Pass has been hampered by Sony’s desire to inhibit such growth,” claims Microsoft in an August 9th filing to the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), as translated from Portuguese. “Sony pays for ‘blocking rights’ to prevent developers from adding content to Game Pass and other competing subscription services.”

Does this mean Sony is evil and Microsoft is casually out here revealing some dastardly business practices? The reality is likely a little more complicated on both sides. Sony could simply be paying for exclusive rights for its own streaming services, or it may have clauses in some publishing contracts that prevent some games it publishes from being published on rival subscription services.

How is a trillion dollar company complaining about a billion dollar one paying $$$ to block something when they have a much larger wallet

Didn’t they spend $80 billion just to stay in dead last

Can't blame em. They're scared to death of Microsofts growth and gamepass. They can see the writing on the wall apparently

On another note, why does it smell like fried bacon in here

Sony isn't keeping games off Game Pass... They're just telling publishers if you give Sony marketing rights then you can't launch games on Game Pass day one... If you want to throw your games day 1 on Game Pass then Sony will not promote it coz they're losing out on sales because of Game Pass... So it's either you sell your sh*t for a year without Game Pass... Or drop your sh*t on Game Pass and lose out on potential sales... Microsoft crying coz the biggest blockbusters they were hoping to drop on Game Pass will be sold to their customers that don't buy games

Tell your trillion dollar daddy to pay more money for games to launch on game pass... They'll end up spending $100mil-$200mil per blockbuster for 3 months exclusivity

That's the funny part... Sony isn't keeping games off Xbox... These mfs are crying coz they have to buy the games they want to play like everyone else... They're upset that daddy can't put those blockbusters on Game Pass day1... The only game that didn't launch on Xbox is Final Fantasy 7, but that's coz Sony is funding that game development and JRPGs don't sell well on Xbox... So why waste resources on porting a game to mfs that refuse to buy games

There's always the scheme of forcing devs to pay for crossplay.

Playstation was doing this sh*t back then too tho lmfao.

It’s the game. Nintendo is the worst with it but you honestly can’t blame them cause Universal tried to run the same game on them.

Entertainment industry as whole cutthroat

Some of y'all are so weird and it is very apparent how emotional some of you are.

Microsoft are not complaining about this situation, they understand better than anyone who has ever been on this site how business works.
