Microsoft continues to justify its acquisition of Activision, a new PlayStation vs Xbox battle.
Xbox’s latest console exclusive is Life is high Below is some gameplay footage.
Anyway, as reported by Windows Central, in Microsoft’s latest response to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the company pointed out how many desirable third-party games are PlayStation exclusives, and gave a few specific examples. It’s fair to say that there’s a few that the company are still feeling a bit salty about.
“In addition to having outright exclusive content, Sony has also entered into arrangements with third-party publishers which require the ‘exclusion’ of Xbox from the set of platforms these publishers can distribute their games on,” Microsoft’s response reads (via Windows Central), “Some prominent examples of these agreements include Final Fantasy VII Remake (Square Enix), Bloodborne (FromSoftware), The upcoming Final Fantasy XVI (Square Enix), and the newly announced Silent Hill 2 remastered (Bloober Team).”
I’m sure Microsoft wouldn’t be The only ones happy if Bloodborne became multiplatform – the 2015 title is widely considered to be one of FromSoftware’s greatest games (if not the greatest). Many are still holding out for a new-gen remaster, but it sounds like if it were to happen, it’d still be a PlayStation exclusive.
What’s also interesting is the mention of Silent Hill 2 – we already knew that the remake was a timed PS5 console exclusive, but this new response seems to indicate that it won’t be going anywhere else beyond its PC release. It’s a shame, but definitely nothing that Xbox users aren’t already used to.
