Microsoft Defeats the FTC: Our Reactions – Unlocked 603


The moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived: the verdict is in for Microsoft vs. FTC, and Team Xbox has won! We spend the entire show discussing the massive implications of the ruling, which seems to have set the stage for Microsoft’s $69 billion acquisition of Activision-Blizzard to finally go through. We talk about the games we might see out of it – particularly from Raven Software – the very serious matter of how Xbox boss Phil Spencer must take steps to clean up the toxic workplace culture at ABK, whether or not Microsoft (and Sony) are done making big acquisitions, and more!
