It’s no secret that Sony is trying to block with all its might Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard Kingthe war to the sound of papers and documents has been going on for months and thanks to this battle interesting backgrounds have emerged.
We know that Sony considers Call of Duty fundamental to the PlayStation ecosystem and thanks to the success of COD over the years, the company has found the necessary funds to develop great PS4 and PS5 exclusives such as Marvel’s Spider-Man, Horizon and God of War.
Attorney Florian Mueller (who also works for Microsoft) he expressed his opinion in this regard, underlining how Sony had several opportunities to sign advantageous agreements but preferred to oppose it and today would have “lost control” of the defensive line and narrative to be pursued in court.
Sony would have systematically rejected any possible agreement proposed by Microsoft and last February the Redmond house stopped looking for a solution or a dialogue with PlayStation. NVIDIA and Nintendo have entered into agreements with Microsoft and the same has happened with other partners while Sony has definitively closed the door to possible deals and this may not be well seen by the judges and those in charge of the judging events.
Microsoft, for its part, he is acting within the rules and demonstrating that it is open to the market and to free competition, Sony on the contrary has opted for the hard line and it is said that this choice will not end up ruining relations with possible commercial partners.
