It’s over dude 

I’m shutting shop on console wars. 
 

Just no point. 
 

Though yeah the actuality of whatever is happening needs to be reflected only once M$ actually started getting returns with whatever they have in mind.

SONY game revenue comes from 3rd party games...like CoD and FIFA yearly. Their 1st party games sold 60m units out of 340m total units sold.

 

Entire gaming division made $25b which includes hardware and network services sales and not just video games. 

 

Quote

All of this added to a great year for the G&NS division, with total sales amounting to ¥2.7 trillion ($24.8 billion), up 34% year-on-year.

 

Software and add-on sales made up the bulk of this at ¥1.5 trillion ($13.8 billion), up 43%. Hardware sales rose 34% year-on-year to ¥767.1 billion ($7 billion), while network services such as PS Plus rose 14% to ¥382.9 billion ($3.5 billion).

 

MS gaming revenue was never that big (and still isn't for MS) but that shouldn't mean they make nothing. They have been improving at a steady pace ever since GP launch. All these purchases will show results in couple of years.

Microsoft Deal Wipes $20 Billion Off Sony's Market Value in a Day

 

Quote

Sony Group Corp. shares fell 13% in Tokyo on Wednesday, their biggest drop since October 2008, after PlayStation rival Microsoft Corp. announced a $69 billion deal to acquire games publisher Activision Blizzard Inc.

 

Quote

“Sony will have a monumental challenge on its hands to stand on its own in this war of attrition,” said Amir Anvarzadeh of Asymmetric Advisors. “With Call of Duty now most likely to be added exclusively to the Game Pass roster, the headwinds for Sony are only going to get tougher.”

 

“Sony will struggle to match Microsoft in terms of money it can spend to buy popular game IP,” Morningstar Research analyst Kazunori Ito said. “Falling shares illustrate investors are worried that Sony may not be able to keep winning if indeed the industry shifts away from the hardware-based model.”

Sony is moving real slow in terms of what it needs to do in case of hardware or even traditional retail based distribution goes obsolete. 
 

They should have formulated an exit strategy atleast when it saw M$,Google,Amazon investing big in

cloud based infrastructure. 

 

Obviously there would have been massive acquisitions & trajectory changes when so many big players were eying on something.

Spent 80b to compete with sony. Speaks volumes....

 

Lol if they cared about only competing with Sony in console gaming then they would have kept all 1st party games exclusive to console only. Game Pass is their focus and they want it everywhere including PS.

 

Money isn't only in console gaming. There's a reason Sony games coming to PC as well

Actually no 

even this is not enough to say they have beat Sony. 
 

It’s the fact that what’s the point when they can just invest more than half of Sony’s total market value in a single year. 
 

Tmrw it might be EA & day after Sony itself. 

 

What’s even the point.

Building franchises > buying them out. 

 

Phil Spender might run out of finances at some point of time. 

 

But if sony keeps innovating, they would never run out of greatness.

M$ is not even worried about making money in immediate future. 
 

That’s the scary part.

 

They can simply rule the whole industry with this sort of mindset.
