Microsoft responds brutally to UK antitrust, which cites Sony 57 times and consumers only 10

Those who had the opportunity to read Microsoft’s response to the CMA (English Antitrust Authority) document that initiated the second phase of the Activision Blizzard acquisition evaluation process defined it as brutal when some nonsense was observed, such as O The fact that Sony has been cited 57 timesagainst 10 times more consumers Mentioned.

This is a clear horrible casebecause it almost looks like the document is formatted to please Sony He reiterated their view on the matter, rather than incentivizing new investigations into the business, to protect consumers.

The first problem with the CMA document will be that Just quote Xbox datawithout comparing it to others. By only taking into account the numbers from franchises like Halo, Forza, and Gears, the Xbox is designed to look stronger on the market than it actually is.

Other issues, such as questioning the appeal of the COD series for Xbox games and force majeure over other franchises such as GTA, Fortnite, NBA 2K, Minecraft, Rocket League, and FIFA, have been put in the balance and challenged. Interestingly, however, Microsoft has denied the CMA’s claim of having documents that would show a desire to steal the Call of Duty franchise from PlayStation, A fundamental accusation to the English body that he told a lie.

Microsoft continues to respond with Covered accusations of Sony falsifying some data, to come to denounce Bias in favor of the Japanese company. Here’s how many times Sony has been mentioned in the CMA document, which as previously mentioned is huge compared to consumer citations. Indeed, one wonders who is trying to protect the entity at this point, as it appears to be fully adopting the viewpoint of only one company.

However, we’ll see if Microsoft’s response will be effective or if English antitrust will continue to get in the way.
