    If they bought EA, I would hope they'd finally put some elbow grease into making Skate 4. People have been wanting a new Skate for almost a decade, myself included.

    I'm fine with Microsoft taking over EA because... well, let's be honest, screw EA.


    I'd rather they didn't take over Valve because then competition would be even more stifled than Valve already makes it on its own.


    don't really care about whether or not they take pubg

    Microsoft, EA, and Valve have their own distribution platforms. No idea how that'll work. EA has the Star Wars exclusive, too (excepting social, online, mobile, and tablet games). Who would end up with that contract if such a buyout happened?


    Microsoft has managed to keep its acquisitions from being demolished who have gone on to their own identities again separate from Microsoft. So how would that work with EA's pattern of eating companies and flushing the resulting poop?


    This is a wild rumor as in it could be way out there or it could have wild consequences if true.

    So here is a crazy idea what abut Ubisoft  by buying out Ubi Microsoft can (with all the hostile takeover talk from last year) stop a new major player (with old fashion  money grubbing values) from entering the industry and acquire a company that already has successful (so its more like mine craft  than lion head) even thought from a consumer stand point EA is the better by

    I wouldn't be surprised if after purchasing Valve. M$ replace Steam with the Dumpster Fire and only allow UWP garbage, removing the ability to mod PC games. the amount of salt unleashed by the PC community would be insane. That and making games like Battlefield, FIFA or Madden timed or only exclusive to the Xbox would cause a sizable drop in profits.


    M$ buying Bluehole AKA PUBG Corp, might be a good thing as the extra budget they could force into the company could make PUBG a better game, by filling it with text to voice apps.

    The only way to see Valve ever make a game again is to buy them out. half life 3?
