Microsoft's biggest leak ever reveals new Xbox, games, fat wallet
#News #activision #bethesda #blizzard #nintendo #playstation #SeriesS #SeriesX #sony #xbox

Al final se están confirmando estos leaks, todo ha salido del juicio del juicio de #Microsoft contra la Federal Trade Commission (FTC) por la compra de #Activision .

Tenemos los planes de una revisión de la #XBOX Series X , planes para una nueva consola para 2028, un nuevo mando, posibles deadlines de la salida del nuevo Elder Scrolls, un nuevo #Doom , #Dishonored y mucho más.

También se habla en los documentos de que el CEO de Xbox quiere comprar a Nintendo pero "a la larga" porque #Nintendo no se deja vender. Mencionando otros premios y caprichos como #Steam , #SEGA y #SquareEnix .

De paso recomiendo el documental en #Youtube de Nate Gentile sobre Microsoft ya que la historia se está repitiendo. Hasta los Simpson hicieron una parodia de lo sucedido:

Edit: Nótese que los planes de Microsoft puedan cambiar a lo largo de estos 5 años que vienen, pero no su afán de expandirse

Quite interesting that #Activision of all companies is taking a stance against queerphobia.

Activision Blizzard's CEO just said:

"We did not have a systemic issue with harassment—ever. We didn't have any of what were mischaracterizations reported in the media. But what we did have was a very aggressive labor movement working hard to try and destabilize the company."

Explain to me: why a union would want to destablise the company that's paying a salary to their members? Where's the logic in that?

And cruel to the people who #Activision #Blizzard has already long mistreated, like QA and CS employees across the country.

During covid, many new hires with disabilities & other complications were, maybe for the first time, able to live the dream of making video games because they could do it from home.

Now ABK, who had three profitable years, is forcing them out via the bare legal minimum of ADA compliance, short deadlines, poor communication, and open hostility.

Stupid because they won't offer it to everyone they should, and people will leave.

Even some portion of those who get WFH will end up leaving, because "grudging allowance" means remote workers will be disadvantaged in career advancement vs in-office folks.
