So basically its positive because it will add more game options for people with game pass? If so, clearly a very narrow view of things imo.

im not sure how this deal is more problematic for privacy, vs facebook selling all your data and breaking their own eulas every year, so they can sell everything about you to 3rd parties?

They have a looooong way to go to get to that point. "most" implies a vast majority. With this latest acquisition it only puts them in 3rd place behind Tencent and Sony. There's a ridiculous amount of competition in the gaming market and Microsoft's acquisitions aren't changing that. Microsoft is working to carve out a nice, sizeable piece of the pie that's been dominated by Sony and Nintendo for many years.

Microsoft is finally rocking the boat in a big way recently, and showing they're dead serious about gaming. Obviously it's ruffling some people's feathers who were used to the status quo.

Yea.. that "article" is dog poop at best. MS is not even 3rd biggest gaming. Nintendo, Sony etc is still bigger than MS in gaming. (I read that somwhere).

The reality is that there's very likely to be massive shifts in "gaming" over the next several years. We've had 3 categories of gaming for the last decade, between PC, console, and mobile
Things on the horizon can challenge that alot. Is Steam Deck a console or a PC? What if Apple gets serious about gaming on Mac? What if Cloud gaming finally becomes a juggernaut? What if Meta makes VR a thing?

I think categories in the future are likely to include console, PC, Mac, mobile, VR, AR, eSports, game-pass subscriptions, cloud... And actually the boundaries between them won't be so well defined. Buying Activision puts MS in a better position to compete no matter what the industry looks like. It gives them competitive options that transcend the "Xbox vs playstation" debate.

In the case of the deck, it is a pc, I mean, it is literally running pc games and has no native titles.

If Steam Deck starts to get alot of studios supporting it, creating specific profiles optimized for it, and if studios start to specifically target the Steam Deck specs, it's hard to argue that it's not a console. Maybe then we see Valve start to buy exclusively rights for games... But like I said, the category definitions will start blending together.

No, the $ is the de facto symbol of greed, you know that is the truth.
