Breaking: Xbox Acquisition Approved! (Unconditionally)
 

 
Microsoft’s merger with Activision has been ‘cleared unconditionally’ in Serbia
THE DEAL HAS NOW BEEN APPROVED IN BRAZIL, SAUDI ARABIA AND SERBIA

Microsoft’s proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard has been approved unconditionally in Serbia.

According to Reuters, Serbia has joined Saudi Arabia and Brazil in clearing the $68.7 billion deal, which is currently being scrutinised by antitrust regulators globally.

It also claimed that Xbox maker Microsoft is likely to offer concessions to EU regulators soon in a bid to help push through the transaction.

Microsoft’s sweeteners would consist mainly of a 10-year Call of Duty licensing deal to PlayStation maker Sony, it said.

“Ultimately, such a move could secure an early clearance with the European Commission and subsequently be used by the parties before other antitrust agencies,” according to Stephane Dionnet, a partner at law firm McDermott Will & Emery.

“However, it remains to be seen whether the active complainants will validate such concessions (in particular in terms of scope) and if behavioural remedies will also be accepted by the CMA and the FTC,” he added, referring to the UK and US competition watchdogs.

Like the European Commission, the CMA recently launched an in-depth probe into the deal, while it’s been claimed that the FTC could file an antitrust lawsuit in an attempt to block the acquisition.

In statements recently provided to the CMA, Sony claimed that if Microsoft gained control of Activision’s “irreplaceable” content it could lead to the company increasing Xbox hardware, software and subscription prices.

Sony also claimed that Microsoft’s “true strategy” behind the Activision Blizzard deal is to have PlayStation “become like Nintendo” and not compete in the 18-rated shooter space.

I would be shocked if this doesn’t clear the FTC, industry is just way too big to suggest this deal would have an anticompetitive impact that hurts consumers.

Especially with MS representing that the games are unlikely to be fully exclusive

The biggest reason why Sony doesnt want COD to go to Xbox is because theg know console will die. When everything goes to app based service it’s goong to hurt Sony.

And that's the thing. When regulators see that Microsoft is extending their games to Sony with Sony being the one declining.

I believe both have made that offer(via streaming service offer) as a strategic move and both declined but I might be mistaken.

My dumb a*s really don't get all this.
Activision want Microsoft to buy them, yet another uninvolved party can block it??

If the deal falls through what's stopping Activision from refusing to make games for playstation anyway?

normally i would agree, but ever since 911, trump, jeffrey epstein, gay lgbtq agenda, trans promotion, and general lack of morals and empathy/apathy ie. any one who claims that cops have a right to k*ll you over cigarettes or george floyd or trayvon martin were justified k*lls, i cant call sh*t no more bro!

but if the world is still sane and it's just the jewish controlled media glorifying the minute details that really are just routine questions they always ask any one.. then yeah every thing you said will go thru.. and that's with out any concessions.

but MS will prolly write that 10 yr deal to appease the FTC/CMA.

i don't think that's true, i think sony has influence on these boards, thus their concerns are being heard and considered. they are not stalling, you go n try read thru a $68B dollar deal... i bet you couldn't do it and understand it b4 2023 comes around.

these guys are not lawyers (per say), they have to take their time and understand the verbiage they're reading. which explains the deeper dive and extended time. if they knew exactly what they are reading then they would have already known MS had no immediate intention to remove COD from PS. they said this back in the summer i believe, when phil gesture he had no intention of breaking up the user base of COD. but of course, they want details, as you should if you wanna understand something in full...

bottom line is... they expected all this for the most part. what's sensationalized is the internet's reaction to hearing, usually private interactions between companies spill over into the public forum, along with blogs and news sites click baiting for views.

sony wont die, less dominant fa sho!
but.....

they will be left behind if they don't smarten up.

this will definitely hurt them, but also sony cappin about the damage it will cause. (hurt; being an immediate or recent suffering of pain vs damage; long lasting or chronic lingering effects)

there's still fortnite, apex, destiny, battlefield and EA is cool w/ sony... sony just full of sh*t.

bro it wouldn't be a thing if ponys said xbox has no games and then were happy xbox making moves.

but they actually say xbox has no games, and want to keep it that way. they actually care so much that only them have games.. like sony having all the games and xbox having all the games as well isn't an option for them.

and that's what makes it a mental retardation scenario, to actually care that much and not be happy when xbox actually is trying to appease.

makes no sense..

pony logic, go figure!

that's a quagmire, isnt it?


and technically sony cant block it. the cma/ftc can block it.. doesnt mean they can stop it.

ftc as of late has been reprimanded quite a few times by their own tribunal for being over zealous in the scope of their reach and purpose.

and it's quite known that the ftc dont have the funds to go toe to toe and get top notch lawyers like MS if it ever goes to supreme court.

Still wondering why they released Gears 5 so late into XB1 and didn't just drop a next generation Gears 5 for the series
