    I hate Bethesda. But I also hate oligopoly and big companies buying out smaller companies is always bad for everyone with the exception of both companies CEOs. I want Microsoft to burn.

    Sooner or later there will only be a single conglomerate devoted to designing Western-style CRPGs.

    In America this has been the trend for a good time already, and it probably has reached its peak in this year.

    There is no reason to keep Obshitian around now. Now that they have the big boss Bethseda. They will liquidate obshitian and all the danger hairs and cucks in this shitty company will be looking for work elsewhere.

    At first glance it looks like they're going after Sony, but the real target here is Valve.

    Valve hasn't done anything to their selling model (you still "purchase" a game that gives you the right to subscribe to Valve's services to play it).

    GamePass with all the stuff they have now + EA Pass games, is a real danger to Valve, and no one else.

    People who buy PlayStations don't get them for the cross platform games anyway. It's more like the adult's Nintendo.

    This is a frighteningly possible scenario. It's kind of like Disney, right? They'll eventually buy out everyone. This is an inevitable consequence of the way our market works. Also, there can't be a conglomerate focused on one thing, the essence of a conglomerate is to be multi-market. But I digress with autism.

    With TES 6 not coming to PS5, I think Armageddon will not be a comet or nukes, but the earth becoming a giant orb of salt, floating in space.

    They're paying 7,5 billion for that pile of shit, aaahahaha, that's even more hilarious than Disney falling for Lucas' 5 billion scam.

    Fair enough. I meant more in the sense that said conglomerate, among its myriad business ventures, will sport a wing entirely dedicated to Western CRPGs – which is already happening in all but name.

    Then again, I doubt CDPR and EA will go down without a fight. Now, Larian, on the other hand…
