A new and especially juicy rumor contracts a huge deal that could allow the maker of theXbox One Offer more quality exclusive titles to potential buyers
A mere wish, or perhaps a prophecy that will yet come true? On the Polygon website Provided a report Based on an anonymous internal source and declares that Microsoft is considering the possibility of acquiring one of the largest game distributors on the market, the American EA Games, in order to improve the supply of exclusive titles for consoles.Xbox One - who find themselves at a significant disadvantage in this aspect compared to the selection available at the bitter rival Sony.
Microsoft of course has its established home brands, Halo, Gears of War and Forza mostly, but these are not necessarily at the center of things and do not constitute an early attraction as they were in the days of theXbox 360, and together with the closure of studios Development For example, Lionhead, Ensemble, and FASA, which prevented the creation of new titles and series, even senior members of the company had to publicly admit that they were in a content problem, which would not be resolved immediately but gradually and properly planned.
Microsoft executives have stated that the acquisition of new development studios may form part of the solution on the way to enriching content that can only be enjoyed atXbox (And perhaps in the service of theXbox In windows 10), when the purchase of EA Games May sound like the most grandiose move the giant technology company could make, largely due to the relative collaboration that already exists between the two in the present.
There are quite a few voices on the net declaring that such a deal is unreasonable and even stupid, but we would not be in a hurry to rule out the possibility, given the variety of surprising and unexpected purchases (of Microsoft Office And of other technology companies) that have already occurred in the past. One thing is for sure - such a deal would be one of the most grandiose in the whole world, and in the field of gaming in particular, if you take into account-EA Games A stock market value of about $ 40 billion as of today, and purchases are usually made as part of a relative premium payment of another tens of percent.
Will the desire to improve its gaming offering justify the biggest takeover deal in Microsoft's history? We'll see.
