Sony has admitted in its latest statement in the case of the purchase of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft that the Xbox Game Pass service is much ahead of PlayStation Plus.
Sony has announced in a new response to the British market and competition regulatory body that, in the company’s belief, Microsoft is far ahead of PlayStation Plus in the field of Xbox Game Pass and is superior to Sony in this field. In this statement, Sony admits that “there is no doubt that the game is far ahead of the PlayStation Plus in terms of market share.” Sony has made this admission as part of its argument against Microsoft, based on which it believes that Microsoft has the motivation to increase the price of Callaf Duty games due to the purchase of Activision Blizzard.
Sony has also announced that this work will encourage Microsoft to reduce the quality of the next Call of Duty games on the rival console and to provide the desired games to users only through Game Pass. According to Sony, Microsoft also has a commercial incentive to offer Call of Duty games on PlayStation Plus at “unviable” prices, thereby driving the market toward exclusivity.
Sony made these statements in its latest response to CMA, which was raised in response to Microsoft’s efforts to buy Activision Blizzard.
