  1. Tbf reactionary stock value like this always stabilises. the Activision news will go quiet and both stocks will move slowly back more towards where they were. Good time to buy sony stock tho.

  2. Look how bad Activision/Blizzards games are doing when it comes to ratings! Unless Microsoft buy Sony they have no chance in having the best games lol $68Billion was a huge waste of money when you consider Sony bought Insomniac for $250M which are better than the Entirety of Activision/Blizzard's output in gaming for the last decade.

  3. I have a feeling that Sony is going to retaliate by buying a BIG gaming studio of their own and the one I'm worried they would be buying is… BANDAI NAMCO!

    (I personally much prefer a more diverse gaming landscape than big gaming monopolies)

  4. I will cite the genius of this movement: MS, if not authorized to buy Blizzard by dumping or monopoly, will have to pay Blizzard 3 Billion (a fact that I doubt will occur since the legal department of MS must have already made a pre-purchase evaluation and business success). With Sony's devaluation, GUESS who bought some BILLION in her stock? The MS! That is, if the purchase is completed, the sons of good mother have devalued the competition by 20 Bi, if the purchase is suspended they bought thousands of shares 20 Bi cheaper. It's not a war, it's a board game lost to the competition.

  5. I’ve always liked Microsoft, I believe it is an amazing company, attempting to revolutionize the market multiple times with technology.
    Unfortunately I don’t see Sony in the same light. They’ve owned and mangled many Marvel properties with nothing but profit in mind. Their electronics are okay, but not impressive by any means. More kind of jumping on the bandwagon.

  7. I ran the numbers and by this acquisition, if they can complete their on the backburner titles like OW2, Diablo IV, maybe a SC3 or expansion, maybe another WC RTS, or maybe even a WC RPG title.
    Maybe even see SC: Ghost FPS come out of hibernation. Obviously other than the titles we know about, everything else is hoping.

    If they make Wow subscriptions GP only, or Xbox Live only, amongst other titles they're looking to increase their subscriber base by over 100% with only that alone.
    If they do that, you're looking at an ROI of 5 years or less. When you increase subscriptions to over 50m and increase yourself to 7bn/year without the games, you're still getting that money back in 10 years. The long game is Microsoft's.
