Microsoft buys Activision-Blizzard - The Genesis of a Monopoly?

First, it was Bethesda for $7.5 billion, and now, it’s the deeply troubled Activision-Blizzard for $68.7 billion - Microsoft is going on a shopping spree in this latest generation of console war, adding on more games to its Game Pass library and consolidating its influence left, right and center.

We react to this enormous news.
