That's an insane buy! Out of nowhere too.

Phil really isnt playing around, I really can't wait to pre order series X tomorrow!

In Phil we trust.



Fascinating. Wonder if this is just Minecraft all over again. They buy it but do nothing with it. It still comes to every system etc.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Megaton. I wonder how much they paid and how well was Bethesda/Zenimax financially.

7.5 billion according to what I saw 



Great for Gamepass, but overall a bit concerning. This is the kind of acquisition that feels like there is little userbenefit as Zenimax already had infinite budget and had very successful IPs that don't need MS' money. Instead of us getting new games and experiences, its just a big money hat.

Maybe they'll keep Bethesda games multiplatform but then I'd question the acqusiton and why not just an EA style gamepass partnership



Wow.... wth...

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view.

This is a gigantic blow to sony, they have nothing that can compete with fallout or elders scroll.
This could sell a lot of xbox systems.
