Microsoft to Acquire Activision Blizzard


Recommended Posts

So MS spent close to $80b to bailout Bobby? :doh:

 

Do you guys even realise how mega corporations work? Especially those which are public. Not even Satya Nadella himself has the power to approve a deal like this. It takes the whole machinery to do so.

Yet it happens within week or so.

As per confirmation from both parties.

 

Quit defending dude. 
 

It is what it blatantly looks it is.

 

Obviously close to 100 billion aren’t being spended for anything else apart from putting competition out of business & create monopoly. 
But everything is fair in business I get it. 
 

But once dealing with a subject of mass harassment allegation it’s hardly “only business”.

 

 & I hope whole heartedly that this one pinches M$ at some point.

I'm not defending anything. I'm just pointing out how ridiculous you guys sound. You guys are literally talking as if you're Satya and the other guy is Phil and dealt directly with Bobby.

From Phil’s own mouth:- 

 

“But honestly, this is a deal that happened pretty quickly”

& that’s exactly state of NYC has filled a lawsuit….to investigate how “quickly” deal got through.

It seems the whole deal was a smoke screen to bail out Spenders best friend, Kotick

 

Trump: Epstein :: Spender:Kotick 

 

(It seems). 

 

 

 

Ya makes sense ,its was a small amount to save a friend.

Rich friend bailing out his other Rich friend out a heinous crime to put his main competitor out of business with unethical business practices. 
 

This is what it’s all about if Subhash Ghai was ever to provide a synopsis.

Ye friends ka mamla nahi hai, this is making the best out of a crisis before things get more worse.

Perhaps if there was no scandal at Activision this deal wouldn't have happened, or MS would have to pay more

Spender wants CoD as an Xbox Studios franchise as soon as possible

Obviously I know that…..he is helping out his “friend” Booby Kaddak only because he wants to put competition out of business through monopoly.

 

He made “friends” out of Zenimax board & management for the same reason as it was sinking. 
 

See business wise it’s fair & square & no moral ethics are involved there. 
 

But inadvertently He has helped out a mass harassment culprit board & CEO. 
Someone had even committed suicide because of this not too long ago. 
 

Well in that case son,Karma is a bitch. 
 

Your intentions towards fair business weren’t exactly righteous either but now that you have gone out of the way & helped someone like that….just in the name of business expansion. 
 

I hope you soon get what’s coming for you.

MS spending 80Bil just to save Koticks a*s is ridiculous. But it is possible Kotick asked to be saved in return for the deal.

 

As in, for MS, getting ActiBlizz is the campaign mission, and saving Kotick is a necessary side mission.

Hope for their sakes they dispose off the guy once the acquisition is done :rofl:

He's an albatross around their neck, give him golden parachute or whatever C-Levels get and shoo him away.

Necessary objective no.1 :- Golden ticket & safe parachute out of the company. 
 

Necessary objective no.2 :- Full respectable voluntary retirement after the acquisition as a prestigious employee of M$. 

 

Hidden Objective(purely my assumption) :- Bad day at office for the complainant employees till the time he’s around & maybe slowly & steadily wipe them out one by one under his watch(cos grudges & ego > safe passage).

This is given, remove "problematic" employees.

I wouldn't be surprised in the future if ubisoft also wants to be bought out by MS at some point in the future :rofl:
