Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard has generated some claims that we wouldn’t see on a day-to-day basis, such as Sony admitting that it wouldn’t be able to create a rival to Call of Duty, and Microsoft admits that PlayStation exclusive titles are of higher quality than its games.

All this can be followed in the defense documents of the two companies, released by the body in charge of evaluating the purchase in the United Kingdom.

Microsoft said that “in addition to being a dominant console provider, Sony is also a powerful game publisher.” “Sony is roughly equivalent to Activision in size and is nearly twice the size of Microsoft’s game publishing business.”

“There were more than 280 exclusive titles from first-party and third-party studios on PlayStation in 2021, almost five times more than on Xbox,” Microsoft reports. “Sony has more exclusive games than Microsoft, many of them of better quality,” he adds.

“Both Nintendo’s and Sony’s exclusive first-party games are among the best-selling games in Europe and around the world. Currently, Sony’s exclusive content includes prominent first-party titles such as The Last of Us, Ghost of Tsushima, God of War and Spider-Man,” Microsoft said.

The exclusivity of the game is always a topic of debate.

The owner of Xbox defends itself by saying that Sony “reached agreements with third-party publishers demanding the exclusion of Xbox from its list of platforms where these publishers can distribute their games.”

Examples of games that fit into this category are Forspoken, published by Square Enix and which has a two-year exclusivity, and Final Fantasy XVI, which will have a shorter six-month exclusivity.

This is a topic that literally burns on social media. The exclusive games of both platforms usually generate discussions that are less than warm. In this generation, after two years, PlayStation started with twice as many exclusive titles (12) compared to Xbox.

But when we look to the future, according to developer promises, Xbox has twice as many exclusive games (14) to release compared to PlayStation. You can check them all in our article evaluating the current generation of consoles.
