Damage competition in cloud gaming? What?
blocking it over cloud gaming concerns seems like a really weird angle
the UK does nothing but produce massive "L"s
Let's not overreact, we just need to invade Britain, throw all the yorkshire tea in the channel, and force them to allow the merger to go through. Still silly how the uk can stop a US company merger lol. Like microsoft should just say "fine, no microsoft products or games for the uk".
why does it seem that so many people hate us blizzard gamers? the acquisition is the best thing that could happen. its a joke of what activision and their stock holders have made out of blizzard and its games, literally anything is a step forward.but what to expect from a country that voted for the brexit and is wondering afterwards why the economy is rock bottom .
Remember guys, government agencies know better than you!
Wow that’s crazy. This whole thing with Kotick and M$ reminds me of something my good friend Jeffrey Atkins once said:
Mergers are damaging to everyone, there is no benefit in a market completely saturated by one who owns all, as they are the only ones to come out on top.Huge W for the CMA
After making their population on average poorer with the brexit strategy ( spoiler alert: people still fish and make profit on your water boomer aint no regulation changing that ) they now want to regulate the ''competitive cloud gaming'' lmao this will not go over well for england 💀
You guys think you want the merger but you don't
They are not 'moving to block'They HAVE BLOCKED.EU will always follow the CMA action.There's absolutely no benefit to the merger for gamers. Look what happened to blizzard when it was merged with Activision, do you really think Microsoft will make it any better? Absolutely not. 99% of all revenue and sales goes to investors like bobby. Check the yearly public revenue. 0.1% goes to expansions, development costs,servers blizzard staff ect. This will have absolutely ZERO impact on the players. This is the reason our games get bundled with trash like cash shops, battlepass and other #$%^.One thing is for sure, bobby's time at blizzard is at an end :)
Deal as good as dead since US, EU and Chinese regulators already signaled that they will also block it.
let's hope now, that bobby share take a huge fall.
People crying about Monopolies yet nobody ever gets on Sony or Disney's ass to the extent they need to be. The game industry has plenty of competition in it with the inclusion of STEAM that actually gives Indie developers a platform to host their games.
Wonder how much sony paid to have this happen
