Companies will enter into 10-year agreement if ABK sale goes through
Phil: Hi Jim!
Jim: Hello Phil, what is up?
Phil: Hey, are you good to go for this 10-year thing, or what? We want to make sure our games stay on your platforms.
Jim: Phil, come on, this is not about just Call of Duty any more. This is about you having control of some of the biggest BRANDS in VIDEO GAMING.
Phil: Jim, we’ve offered you Game Pass. We’ve guaranteed CoD for at least 10 years. We want even more games on your platforms. And you still get to have a cut of the sales! Subscriptions, full games — everything.
Jim: Phil, you know what you’re doing. You know that by owning these properties, even IF we agree to CoD for 10 years, it will eventually move everyone to buy an Xbox over a PlayStation!
Phil: Jim, we’re not even going to be selling hardware anymore in, like, 5 years bro! You know we’re Game Pass and Streaming now! And it’s working fine with Minecraft!
Jim: Phil, stop. This is not going to work. Anyone who agrees to this knows that it’s not going to add anything. There’s no way this will benefit ANYONE but yourself, and a deal like this is just a ploy to let you get past all of the lawsuits for approval for the ABK purchase!
Jim: I thought so.
Phil: Fine, we’ll just give this to Nintendo.
Jim: !!WHAT THE FU*click*
