Xbox chief and Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer says Sony's opposition to the Activision Blizzard deal is influenced by the PlayStation-maker's desires to "protect its dominance" in consoles. From a report: "Sony is trying to protect its dominance on the console. The way they grow is by making Xbox smaller," Spencer said on the Second Request podcast when discussing "the one major opposer to the deal": Sony. "Sony is trying to protect its dominance on the console. The way they grow is by making Xbox smaller," Spencer said. "[Sony] has a very different view of the industry than we do. They don't ship their games day and date on PC, they do not put their games into their subscription when they launch their games." Spencer claimed that "Sony is leading the dialogue around why the deal shouldn't go through", saying that the company is trying to protect PlayStation's "dominant position on console" by "grab[bing] onto Call of Duty". "The largest console maker in the world raising an objection about the one franchise that we've said will continue to ship on the platform," Spencer added. "It's a deal that benefits customers through choice and access."
