Does CEO Ballmer's strategy point at the direction for Microsoft Game Studios?
Reuters reports that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has said the company will be focusing on smaller acquisitions over the next few years in order to focus on the "independent path".
Speaking at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco yesterday, Ballmer said that the company wants to focus on smaller purchases worth $50m to $1bn each ever year rather than pursuing 'mega-deals'.
"If at some point it makes sense, maybe then it makes sense. But that's not where we are going. We are driving in an independent direction," said Ballmer.
