Everything revolves around Call of Duty

It was a few days ago when we received the news that Sony revealed how many years he had left of Call of Duty on PlayStation consoles. Jim Ryan assessed Microsoft’s action in relation to the above: “Microsoft’s proposal undermines this principle.” He did not hesitate to cross out the offer of “inadequate on many levels” because it did not “take into account the impact on our players.”

Mainly all this occurs by Call of Duty. Phil Spencer wrote a letter to Jim Ryan promising that COD games would be on PlayStation for many years. Something to which Sony already pointed out at CADE in Brazil its concern about it, claiming that Call of Duty “influence when buying consoles“. For its part, Microsoft accused Sony of paying developers to block games access to Game Pass.
