Bobby's yachts are hereby banned from European waters.
I will never understand the need to take parts in companies vs governments. Instead of sitting back, relax and enjoy together the !@#$ show you insist to take sides and stress yourselves with something it does not involve you. Companies, if they have the money to, they will not invest more if they can have returns with the same amount of investments. Yet, here you are, thinking it would make WoW or D4 or other games any better. Also, when it comes to companies they do not "envy". They see their interests jeopordized and they decide whether to take the opportunity to make sure that does not happen or do nothing thinking the compatition will bury themselves anyway. It is all about power and influence. Also, Kotick is a sleazebag. Why on earth would you sympathize with him ? Are you rich and want to get richer like him ?
Has there ever been someone with a more punchable face than Bobby Cockwit
never thought Id get to say this, but based bobby kotick
UK regulatory bodies are generally pretty toothless and usually beholden to the politicians. I'm sure MS and the Tories will find a way to work it out.
Of course the deal is shady. But do I care? Not in the least because above all else I want Bobby gone and I also don’t play Call of Duty so I don’t give a rat’s ass about what happens to it. I do think it’s foolish of Sony and the others to cry bloody murder about the game not being available on their platforms, though. Of course it will be, they’ll just have to pay more for it. That’s just how businesses works.And frankly while monopoly is a concern, in this particular case it’s a much lesser one than the sheer madness of every other company making their own platform and forcing people to subscribe to dozens of different services they don’t want just so they can have one particular piece of content. This problem is particularly keenly felt in the US where I live so from my perspective as a consumer the industry could use consolidation.
On the SONY front - they should not only be ignored but derided for the blatant lies and obfuscation being spewed,They lock down their IP so tight they sic their lawyers after their own fans who love their franchises, from grandmas to little kids, they don't care.Then again they were the ones putting root kits on audio CDs and bricking people's computers, and they still load spyware onto your PC today.They still haven't paid up on that bit of blatant hacking they got caught doing. They are just as evil, but their executives remain faceless little thanks to that countries culture and ownership of their regulators and media.
Microsoft bought Bethesda, and now the new Bethesda games are not releasing on playstation when they have in the past. I don't believe this guy at all. Microsoft wants people to buy game pass, they want people to buy windows operating systems and xbox systems to play their games.Valve isn't worried because they primarily sell software that runs on windows operating systems already. Steam has a stranglehold on the PC market.
South of the UK is already silicone valley.
His voice is the worst.
So why is ES 6 now XBOX only? Why is Starfield XBOX only? Money, reduce competition, buy our machine.
Bobby always reminds me of Mr. Krabs
Too many people in this thread are waaaay too young to assume that Microsoft wouldn't act as a gatekeeper to control more markets if this happened. Their entire history as a company is the biggest evidence to the contrary, affecting everything from corporate level database software to internet browser standards.
