Sony claims that the Xbox Call of Duty offer will ‘irreparably harm competition.’
Responses to this remark were mixed, with most commentators siding with Microsoft. Several gamers believe Sony is deliberately delaying its steps to scupper the agreement for no apparent reason. CCO of Activision Lulu Cheng Meservey’s statements were also brought up when she asserted a few days earlier that Microsoft gave Sony a lot better deal than Activision would have done. However several people expressed real concern that Microsoft is a danger to gaming.
Many players seem to be bored of Sony’s objections, given that several rivals have already accepted the agreement Sony argues would do irreparable harm. At this moment, it seems like Sony is losing support by continuing to oppose the Activision merger.
