A U.S. judge in California on Thursday turned down Microsoft Corp's bid to freeze a private consumer antitrust lawsuit over the company's $69 billion deal to acquire "Call of Duty" maker Activision Blizzard Inc while a related regulatory challenge to the deal plays out.
I'm surprised MS' powerful lawyer didn't manage to stop it.
I wonder if the opinions displayed by the members on this site would be the same if Sony were the ones trying to buy Activision Blizzard.
Strange the triilion dollar company with the best lawyers money can buy. Funny, there was someone here saying and making fun that this would be immediately crushed...
MS are only buying up these publishers so they can take the IP's they want absorb them into the xbox brand and then close down said publisher. I bet in a few years Bethesda will be gone and MS will take titles like Fallout, Doom, Elder Scrolls, etc and ditch the rest. They do it in all other areas that they slime their way into so why will gaming be teated any different by them?
Lets hope the courts can stop this tax dodging tech giant from buying up and monopolising yet another industry.
Power to the people lol.
