The fight for Activision Blizzard continues.

The arguments for or against the purchase of Activision Blizzard are giving a lot to talk about during these weeks, since it seems that we have fully entered into a critical moment for acquisition on the part of Microsoft if we take into account that problems are arising around this, giving rise to that little by little we begin to doubt whether it will finally be carried out or not.

And before this, it must be said that there are not being few revelations, as well as the data that is emerging, even getting to have the first tracks of PS6 by Sony, among many others. However, the data that transcends now is the percentage of exclusives that are purchased for the different consolesthis being an argument that, in this case, has been used for Microsoft to defend the purchase.

Xbox exclusives account for 10% of total sales while PlayStation exclusives account for between 10 and 20% of the console

According to what has been known and in response to the indecision of the corresponding regulatory body in the United Kingdom, it should be noted that Microsoft has stated that PlayStation has many exclusive and better quality games than those available on Xbox, this being something that the American company defends to justify that the acquisition of Activision Blizzard would not have any anticompetitive effectpointing to franchises like The Last of Us, God of War and Spider-Man as proof of this catalog of exclusives.

On the other hand, this same report provided by Microsoft also gives quite relevant information regarding the Xbox and PlayStation exclusives, since they affirm that exclusive titles have been 10% of Xbox sales between 2018 and 2021, while on PlayStation during the same period they were between 10 and 20%further noting that Sony games are top raters on Metacritic.

In this way, it will be necessary to see if these arguments are sufficient for British regulators change their mindsince currently both in the United Kingdom and in the European Union the final decision seems to be leaning towards PlayStation.
