    Bad for consumers, so expect this acquisition to be approved.

    Sucks for PlayStation users who want to play CoD, but ho hum, them's the breaks.
    The issue is that the CEO is still supposed to stay on. The guy who helped cause all of the culture issues at the company. Zero consequences, tons of benefits.


    It’s a massive shame.

    Shit, for me the current low bar is being set by MSFS 2020 and CoD Vanguard. Those games have so many bugs for how much revenue they generate it isn't funny.

    I bought MSFS 2020 back in November and it wasn't until a week or two ago that someone found a method of entering and exiting things in the right order for Bush Flights to work somewhat correctly.

    The friggin sights we can unlock for guns on CoD Vanguard don't work. The sights on the guns on a shooting game are broken. That's all I need to say about how messed up Vanguard is.

    I sure hope to see recent A-B titles in Steam and I really hope they will drop an abomination called Battle.net.
    i'd say they will drop Battle Net BUT replace it with their own store.
    My only hope is that SteamDeck might save Linux Gaming
