The big issue I see is that MS will push their gamepass and will eventually opt out of selling games directly. On the other hand they at least cater to the PC audience and not just consoles. By that I mean that they release titles on both PC and consoles and at the same time at that, because their UWP platform is pretty terrible otherwise.

Grow in what??? Let's hope that not in a big headache for everybody... In a way it makes sense...a game producer famous for buggy games bought by a company famous for buggy software.

There isn't very many AAA studios left to buy. EA would cost too much even for Microsoft.

If Microsoft bought Bethesda, now Doom will use DX12 instead of vulkan and they will ditch id software?

Sega is even worth buying, as all they make are mobile games nowadays.

They want game making studios, Valve barely qualifies any more

No Japanese company will sell to Microsoft, so that leaves very little in regard to big titles that would be a success on the Xbox/PC.

Anti-trust laws work on monopolies. Like Valve.

Why would they "send away" the most talented engineers they just got? They don't give a crap about Vulkan vs DX12, the only thing they want is their store everywhere, and after that Windows (maybe).

Isn't Sony and Nintendo Japan based? US doesn't care about screwing non-US comoanies.

Not surprising. They need exclusives to compete against Sony and that´s the only way to have them...

Nothing Sega has is going to be smash hit, which got them in to financial trouble in the first place. Lazy ports, unfinished, buggy Sonic games.

What about Battlefield 6?

Business-wise, if I was MS, I actually would make a bid at least for EA. This would drive the western audience with FIFA/Madden/MMA/Boxing, followed by 2K for NBA and Wrestling games (and ofcourse GTA6). Next, buy up Codemasters for rally and F1 racing games and finally a generous bid for Capcom for fighting and horror games. The Xbox then ends-up being the best sports games machine with some big AAA franchises on top.

I have said it again and again: we have pirated far too little! They (the big brother companies, that destroy your freedom and eat your kids) had money to bribe the press, so they always had more than enough of it. Yes, I am a click-byte victim.
