It's the best selling game on PlayStation every year and Sony makes like 40% of it's total money from microtransactions, which CoD has a big player base that partakes. I'm not at all surprised they're doing everything they can to keep the ball in their court, the game makes them a lot of money.
So you just ignored every number I threw at you…

Either get some numbers or be quiet. Almost 50% of Fortnite’s money comes from Sony. Fortnite makes more money than COD man.

MS isnít going to let 1.2 bill just go. I expect them to stop all of Sonyís COD exclusivity.


This is what MS is trying to do which is obvious but people are not putting 2 and 2 together.

MS wants gamepass on everything. They want to be Netflix of gaming and to get rid of doing consoles. COD would damn near force Sony to allow gamepass on the consoles. This doesnít solve MSís issue with Nintendo saying no just yet.

MA will use COD to get every console manufacturer to do what they want, which is gamepass.

9 year olds understand gamepass now. Itís only a matter of time unless somehow this deal is k*lled.
The MS deal is dangerous in a way that it hurts another companyÖ I think the issues are bigger than just COD itís about how MS is going to effect the industry.

I’m not going to lie… I ain’t think everyone would cry this much about this purchase.
Pretty sure Call of Duty makes Sony more money than any other game.

It happens

Microsoft has done it too


Completely different. That would've given nVidia control off of the ARM architecture which the entire mobile industry is built off causing a monopoly.

I didn't ignore what you said at all. You are no doubt correct about Fortnite, nothing in my response says otherwise. Fortnite is free, it isn't the best 'selling' game.

I'm simply saying that if CoD no longer releases on PlayStation then Sony will lose hundreds of millions of dollars every year, if not more. Why does anyone find it surprising that Jim Ryan is doing his job as a CEO and trying to protect his company's profits?

As crazy as this sounds… it’s probably not top 3. Fortnite probably is then maybe Genshin impact and there is a game Sony owns on mobile that made like 4 billion.

And this is knowing Activision themselves made 1.2 bill last year I believe FROM Sony on COD. Which means maybe Sony made half if not less.


Fortnite is damn near Sony’s splash screen on the PS5, lol. Fortnite on iOS when it was there was making 50 mill a month. Sony is probably at least 2x that

But my point isn’t solely about Sony. It’s everyone complaining about this deal which the complaint is literally just about COD, lol. Not Overwatch, Warcraft, nothing Blizzard has… just COD. Crazy
