Ooh boy, here’s some more CMA regulatory drama for the party people. So today, Microsoft and Sony’s statements on the Activision-Blizzard merger were released publicly by the UK’s regulatory body, the CMA. We’ve seen snippets of them shared before, but now we have it all, and it’s a hilarious glimpse of Sony’s pervasive hypocrisy about this whole ordeal. Sony claims Microsoft could shut down Xbox content (something Sony does with impunity), while restricting competition (something Sony does by forcing third parties to deny Xbox Game Pass offers) and, check this out, Sony claims that Microsoft could increase the prices of the console (right after raising the price of the PS5 in most markets).

Beyond all that fun stuff, Sony also inadvertently shared a bit of news that is of particular interest to Microsoft watchers. That of the growth of Xbox Game Pass. There have been reports that Xbox Game Pass has repeatedly missed growth targets, evidence based only on the fact that certain Microsoft executive bonuses are tied to specific aspirational goals for the service. Regardless of whether or not specific goals have been missed, it seems that Xbox Game Pass is gradually growing.
