“Playstation exclusives are better and more numerous”

There’s been a big leap forward in the ongoing drama around Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
Today we learn more via official documents and the results are quite telling.

Thus according to a document presenting the number of players or games of each platform (there were more than 280 exclusive first and third-party titles on PlayStation in 2021, almost five times more than on Xbox explains Microsoft in its answer), it There are a few tidbits about how each company views its own games.

One particular point is where Microsoft notes that “Sony has more exclusive games than Microsoft, many of which are of higher quality.” The point – as you can see below – notes that “exclusive first-party games from Sony and Nintendo rank among the best-selling in Europe and globally” and that “current exclusive content from Sony includes first-party titles important such as The Last of Us, Ghosts of Tsushima, God of War and Spiderman.”

Microsoft goes on to say, “In addition to having purely exclusive content, Sony also has agreements with third-party publishers that require the ‘exclusion’ of Xbox from all platforms on which these publishers can distribute their games.”
Microsoft is challenging Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Bloodborne, Silent Hill 2 Remastered, and Final Fantasy 16 here.

Seeing clearly and categorically that Microsoft is admitting that Sony has more and better exclusives is telling and perhaps a little disheartening for the team’s work on upcoming Xbox titles (Fable, Perfect Dark, Starfield…)
