Sony vs Microsoft, the curtain will not end in the short term. Sony recently claimed in a document in response to the censorship agency that EA’s “Battlefield” has been working hard for many years, but it is still not as good as “Decisive Moment”.

Review the latest battle situation, based on Microsoft’s statement that “it is impossible to sign only one permanent contract”, but after the 3-year contract was deemed insufficient, Microsoft re-expressed its willingness to provide a 10-year contract on November 22, Sony has not yet responded A new offer statement.

Things happened.

The following is a passage that took place in October when the British Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) submitted an investigation report, which triggered Sony’s response to “Battlefield” is not as good as “Battlefield”.

The CMA mentioned in a document published on October 12 that few IPs can replace or even match “Decisive Moment”, and they believe that there is only one competitor of similar size at present, which is Epic Games’ “Fortnite”.

On October 28, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s lawyers responded to the document. In one of the “periods” that “Microsoft has not promised to continue to let “Decisive Moment” be released on PlayStation and PlayStation Plus”, Sony claims that “Microsoft has proposed that before 2027, let Activision games are available on the PlayStation platform”, but the definition of “period” mentioned in the relevant text lacks a clear definition.

Sony believes that it will lose Call of Duty and other Activision titles before the next-generation PlayStation console is launched, but all of this will make it easier for consumers to switch platforms, resulting in reduced competitiveness. Assuming Sony has the ability and resources to release a successful title like the Call of Duty series, it will take many years and billions of dollars in resources.

Sony even took EA’s “Battlefield” series as an example, thinking that “even if you put in a lot of hard work, you may still be unsuccessful.”

What will be the next step?

Based on the previous CMA’s support for the special and non-replaceable nature of “Decisive Moment”, Sony may not accept the 10-year contract (or even more time), because accepting it means that “Microsoft has solved the biggest competitor in the market”, The wind direction will also tend to push the closing of the deal.

If Sony doesn’t think Microsoft is really going to make Call of Duty an exclusive; in other words, if Call of Duty is going to stay on the PlayStation platform regardless of whether the acquisition is successful, Sony has no reason to be obedient and cooperate.

At present, the market review meetings of various countries are still in progress, and the bigger the noise, the more attention it can attract.

There are also public opinions that the transaction will be completed smoothly anyway, and Sony just wants to make things look troublesome.

What do you think?
