Sony knows it won’t lose Call of Duty to Xbox exclusivity. Here’s what it’s really about.

Sony is once again pleading with regulators to block the Activision-Blizzard deal from Microsoft, which would see the Xbox and Windows firm gain control over major franchises like Call of Duty and Diablo. 

Naturally, Xbox is Sony’s biggest competitor in the console space, with PlayStation remaining the dominant platform in virtually every major market, if not all of them. Xbox has aggressively fought back, using high-value offerings like the more affordable Xbox Series S, and the all-you-can-eat subscription gaming service Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft also seeks to compete with Amazon and other cloud companies in the nascent cloud gaming space, by bringing Xbox games to phones, tablets, and the web via streaming.
