Why Sony can no longer compete with Microsoft – Reader’s Feature – Metro.co.uk

So with all that out of the way, my supposition ignited by the recent acquisition is, what if Google, Amazon or Apple simply bought Sony (or even just the PlayStation sub-division)? All of an abrupt, they would be at the peak of the instructions they all relatively desire a piece of. I know Sony probably wouldn’t wish to sell (and us PlayStation gamers would probably worry about it at the minimum) however money talks and the ZeniMax purchase proves that gaming is viewed as an extremely huge industry for business involved in digital business.

I’m finally beginning to concur with him, as regardless of innovative quality Sony just can’t contend in company with Microsoft. Yes, Sony have enough cash to have actually made the very same purchase (though it would hit their bottom line harder) however if it were ever to become a bidding war Microsoft would simply escalate the rate above anything that Sony might pay for. And what with Google and now Amazon starting their own game streaming services the competition is on. All three corporations weigh in at around the $300-400 billion net worth, with bad old Sony nowhere near at about $70-80 billion. Then there is Apple, who do not quite seem as all-in as the others but have Apple Arcade and deserve more than all of them combined (not including Google’s moms and dad business Alphabet).

As a PlayStation owner (for all of their generations, I also had an Xbox Once) I’ve been calling out for Microsoft to actually begin producing a consistent stream of premium exclusives for a long time, 360. While this is still yet to happen, the ZeniMax offer signals their objectives to attempt and do so. Now I’m not going to enter into whether I think the huge Bethesda IPs will remain multiplatform or become Xbox exclusives (Microsoft can do whatever they like with their residential or commercial property regardless of the anti-consumer spin uncle Phil has actually consumed till now when talking about exclusivity). I rather wish to discuss how this has reinforced Phil’s claims that PlayStation is no longer seen as Microsoft’s competitors.

Have Sony been priced out of video gaming?(picture: AFP)A reader responds to Microsoft’s purchase of Bethesda and thinks of a future where Apple or Google decide to buy Sony and the PlayStation. I’m aware that this subject might spark emotions on either side of the console fight lines however this is merely a think piece stimulated by the recent mega deal involving Microsoft acquiring ZeniMax Media. I’m not recommending any of my approaching hypothesising will in fact come to pass but my viewpoint of the future of console gaming has actually changed rather as an outcome of the deal (and the capacity for more) and I’ve been wondering how others view it.

All of an abrupt, you might have Microsoft Xbox vs. Apple PlayStation (vs. Amazontendo … or whatever). As I mentioned in the preamble, I’m not saying that this will take place and I know that Google already have the shambolic Stadia and Amazon just revealed the soon to be shambolic Luna … but they could have simply bought the current brand leader and prevented all the humiliation.
