What Sony’s Comments On the Microsoft & Activision Deal Really Mean – IGN Now

IGN published this video item, entitled “What Sony’s Comments On the Microsoft & Activision Deal Really Mean – IGN Now” – below is their description.

Sony says that it expects Microsoft to honor contracts it has with Activision and “continue to ensure” that Activision games are released on its platforms – but there’s some room for interpretation about what exactly the PlayStation manufacturer means. Naturally, after Microsoft announced its intention to acquire Activision Blizzard for almost $70 billion, many began speculating about whether the company would turn traditionally multiplatform releases into Xbox exclusives. Sony has now weighed in on that idea: “We expect that Microsoft will abide by contractual agreements and continue to ensure Activision games are multiplatform,” said a Sony spokesperson to The Wall Street Journal.
