All the information that Sony has to give to Microsoft
As we see in tweet of @infrarogue89, Microsoft would be receiving very important documents from the exclusive agreements for PlayStation. In addition to revealing third-party exclusivity agreements, Sony will have to give up many of Jim Ryan’s internal emails, thus taking much of the Japanese company’s confidential and financial information. At the moment it is unknown if said information will be made fully publicbut it would not be uncommon for important details of the Sony deals to come to light in the coming weeks.

While we don’t currently know what the release of these documents may entail, we believe it could end endless years of abusive exclusivities on PlayStation platforms.

Although SEGA has begun to expand, Square seems to be closing in more and more on the Japanese platform.
