Xbox is in trouble — and Microsoft is considering a major acquisition to fix it
|01/30/2018||Posted by BusinessMediaguide.Com under General World News||
- Microsoft’s Xbox One platform is making ambitious moves, but remains in second place behind Sony’s massively successful PlayStation 4.
- A comparatively poor line-up of major exclusive games is a key factor in the Xbox One’s weaker position.
- A new report from gaming site Polygon says Microsoft is looking at a major acquisition to help the Xbox group.
- Valve, EA, and PUBG Corp. are all cited as potential purchases.
Microsoft could buy Valve — the company behind Steam, the world’s largest gaming service. The same goes for EA — the company behind “Madden,” “FIFA,” and “Need for Speed.”
