They tried to buy Nintendo, but Nintendo just laughed in their face.

I had to legit look at the Xbox Twitter to make sure it wasn't a parody account.

 

Absolutely insane.

 

No way they make CoD, Overwatch, and other big multiplayer games exclusive though.  Or at least I'd hope not.

 

I haven't read any articles to expand on the deal though, did they mention anything regarding any of that.

If this deal closes, they won't make them exclusive, but they probably will remove future iterations from Playstation platforms.

 

They will never comment on future products, until they are announced.
