As gamers should we not want console manufacturers to invest in creating new studios and new IP instead of buying existing ones just to take games off of competing platforms?
Sony invests in new triple-A IP such as The Last of Us, Horizon Zero Dawn, Bloodborne, Ghost of Tsushima and Returnal. All are highly rated and highly successful and none of these games would have happened without Sony's commitment to providing gamers with high quality, unique and innovative experiences that set their platform apart from the others.
Take a look at what Microsoft is doing. After years of failed IPs and studio shutdowns they have completely given up on trying to create their own studios and IPs and are now attempting to buy their way to relevancy. This is anti-consumerism at its finest. Instead of providing new content to players and bringing something to the table of the gaming industry they are throwing money around in a fit of rage to buy up studios and companies just so they can cancel PS versions of games. Phil's trying to punish gamers for buying the console with good exclusives over the one littered with shovelware like Crackdown 3 and Bleeding Edge.
I can't see how any real gamer would cheerlead over this sort of business practice.
