Adam Conover has serious concerns over Microsoft’s $68.7 billion deal with Activision

Adam Conover is an American comedian, writer, voice actor and television host. Naturally, the Xbox and Activision deal became a hot topic and Adam decided to share his opinion regarding the deal. He even said that he thinks the Xbox and Activision deal is scarier than many users think.

He also expressed real concern that Microsoft has disrupted a huge strategy in the industry, which will give them a chance against other console industries.

Adam said,“Most publishers sell their games for between $60 and $70. Which they have to do because the game costs $100 million and years of effort. But Microsoft recently disrupted this strategy by introducing a service called Game Pass, where you can get 100 games for just $9.99 per month. And now they’re buying game publishers so they can put their games on the service.

He further said,“It doesn’t matter if Call of Duty is also available on PlayStation. If you can get it for $9.99 instead of $70 and also get hundreds of other games. That’s what you’re gonna do!! The deal is too good to pass up.”

What actions can Sony and Nintendo take to avoid losing their users?

Adam also proposed that Sony and Nintendo could create their own Game Pass competitors, but they can’t. It’s mainly because they can’t afford to take such a colossal risk. He said he thinks Microsoft could suffer a huge loss on Game Pass.

According to Adam,“They are able to do this because they are literally 10 times bigger than Sony and Nintendo combined. Nintendo manufactures video games and playing cards. Sony makes video games and headphones. Microsoft makes video games, the operating system that every computer in the world runs on, and the web services that every website in the world runs on. It is one of the biggest companies in the world. »

Finally, he even suggests that Nintendo could survive this haptic situation, but not Sony. “Actually, I think I should say Nintendo will be fine because Nintendo has Mario and Zelda. And everybody loves Mario and Zelda. But I think Sony is screwed.

Interestingly, Adam has an important point because Microsoft is a huge company compared to Sony and Nintendo. Therefore, he can use his massive cash reserve to subsidize his Game Pass loss until Sony and Nintendo pull out of the competition.
