  • Microsoft is buying Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion.  (PC Perspective)

    In cash.

    Activision has been around since 1980 and is the publisher of classic titles such as Build-A-Bear Workshop: Welcome to Hugsville and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare - Jackal Assault VR Experience.  Blizzard was for years a license to print money with Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, and World of Warcraft, then they got woke and went broke.

    I don't know if Microsoft can turn the beleaguered company around, but if anyone can do it, it's them, because they are still motivated by good old-fashioned greed - they don't even bother to pretend they are doing things for your own good.

1 Maybe Microsoft is looking to push a bunch of drug smuggling money into something that will show a reliable loss year after year.  Or maybe they realise with inflation about to wallop us real good, that cash will be worth quite a lot less than a failing video games company.
