"I am Kotick. I'm so mad because I poop my pants all the time."

Oh article. I read through it, agreed there was just too many GH titles. Blame Kotick and Activision. As the article stated "Kotick and underlings are not gamers".

I for one am glad top see it crash and burn. I mean to say, Lego Rockband....what the fu...?

Konami done it better with Guitar Freaks over 10 years ago and it wasn't a commercial slut of a game either.

Kotek, the end is nigh...first Guitar Hero and possibly CoD next. Keep killing your cows!

Why? It doesn't apply in the eu and the eu already agreed it on current terms which remain same within the eu. Did the regulator realise that eu ended up with worse market conditions and a worse agreement

If you read the article, its that the original concession by MS was for ABK games to be available on other cloud streaming services globally. Since MS is now planning to sell the UK cloud rights to Ubisoft, to appease the EUs current agreement, which means global availability on other cloud platforms, they now need Ubisoft to agree to the same as well

That's not true. Phil Spencer has already stated in interview yesterday that the previous agreements with the other cloud streamers like Nvidia service still stands with the new agreement.

I love how I get down voted even though what i say is absolutely the truth 😅

Sony could buy now Ubisoft ;)

Sonyslave334d ago (Edited 34d ago )

Lol for what cloud streaming rights, that they can't make exclusive.

All the money still going to microsoft and im sure sony will run into the same problem with the cma smh.

darthv7233d ago

I read that this is for 15 years... seems like a lease than a sale.

What Activision Cloud Gaming? Isn't that like 1% of the entire gaming and for CoD nobody is streaming if for multiplayer matches anytime soon, lol.

--Onilink--33d ago


Its for games released in the next 15 years and those already out, but they keep the rights forever.

Games released after 15 years would be out of the deal

Beyond Good and Evil 2 exclusively for PS8.

Flakegriffin33d ago

That’s being optimistic. I’d say for their 10th gen anniversary. PS10, the earliest.

IRetrouk33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

I dont think they can, the licence would have to be sold first or ms would have to agree to let the agreement continue under sony, which they certainly wouldn't lol.

IRetrouk33d ago

Yes they can, they are valued at the same price sony bought bungie for, but why would they want to?, ubi is extremely bloated and sony would need to cut way too many positions for it to make sense, would be much easier to work out some deals or licence ips instead.

Aloymetal33d ago

Sony can but they don't need to, With a $100+ billion in the bank Sony's gaming division is wiping the floor with MS gaming division which has trillions $ ;)

neutralgamer199233d ago


Sony can afford to buy any publisher. This myth about them not having money just isn’t true. They can buy sega, capcom and square and still have money left over just in their acquisition funds. Yes they have created a separate fund just bc is acquisitions and money is constantly being added to it

Think about it Microsoft can thrive without Xbox so it’s not a necessity where as Sony need’s PlayStation so they have more reasons to invest heavily to make sure there is a steady growth and a stable future

Now to the point Sony will never buy ubi because ubi isn’t worth much and are too bloated. Their budget is so out of whack. And tencent recently invest into UBI so they will most likely get first dibs

As far as I am concerned they should definitely try to acquire capcom and square. That would be huge boost and come at a fraction of the cost MS paid for activision. Japanese companies don’t like to sell to the west and just look at how their whole Nissan situation went.

All Microsoft would have to do is buy Ubisoft now. 🤔

IRetrouk33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

No because that would then become a verticle merger, which can be blocked if deemed anticompetitive, which is what the cma already has issues with, the whole point is to get the deal passed while also addressing the cma's concerns, not cause more oversight and investigations.

S2Killinit33d ago

That would be hilarious. But Sony doesnt need to buy anyone, their gaming studios are way ahead of the competition as is. Better spend the money more strategically.

I wonder how the finer print looks like for the transaction. Perhaps some exclusives to Microsoft's streaming services? In any case they just wanted Call of Duty, which by the reaction to MW 3 might not be worth the price they paid.

PunksOnN4G33d ago

Nope states all games have to be all platforms can u not read LOL
