The purchase of Activision Blizzard is being, without a doubt, the event of the beginning of this year 2023, something that is necessary to praise, taking into account that the official announcement took place during the past year.

Lots of criticism of Sony
As can be read on an official Activion Blizzard website, in this email Bobby Kotick lists, while criticizing many of the arguments that Sony has given against the purchase of this company by Microsoft. Among them, we can highlight two, the first being the issue that games would arrive in worse conditions on PlayStation, in addition to the fact that They admitted not wanting a deal for Call of Dutybut rather they wanted to stop the purchase.
In the first case, he basically argues that they work to offer the best possible version to all their players, but it was with the second statement that he criticized Sony the most.
