Apparently, the fight for Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard not to materialize has been taken too seriously by Sony, who see the arrival of important franchises in the hands of Xbox, such as Call of Duty, in danger. And it is that as we have seen previously, the executives of the company behind PlayStation have used countless and different arguments so that the merger does not materialize, which have been delivered to the authorities that review the purchase.
Business that is currently under the magnifying glass of the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), to whom Sony has turned to, once again, complain about the acquisition of Call of Duty by Microsoft, saying that hypothetically , the company might release versions of this game on PlayStation that contain bugs and bugs.

the news was delivered on Twitter by trade journalist and Senior Editor at The Verge Tom Warren, delivering part of Sony’s suggestion to the CMA, who say that “Microsoft could release a version of Call of Duty for PlayStation where bugs and glitches arise only on the final level of the game or after subsequent updates. Even if such downgrades could be detected quickly, any remedy would likely come too late, by which time the gaming community would have lost confidence in PlayStation as the go-to place to play Call of Duty.”
“In fact, like Modern Warfare II, Call of Duty is most often purchased in the first few weeks of its release. If it became known that the game performance on PlayStation was worse than on Xbox, Call of Duty could decide to switch to Xbox, for fear of playing their favorite game in a second-rate or less competitive place, ”they indicate.
Hypothetical situation that is clearly first read as an accusation towards Microsoft, who in this supposed plan to harm them would seek to get their players to prefer Xbox consoles. But also, this argument could be read as another tantrum from Sony, who see themselves as a company with almost no other basis to prevent the purchase, which invents this type of situation, which could perhaps happen since you never know within the industry and its fierce competition, but for now they do not have any serious proof.
