Do you think it’s unusual that Microsoft has made this claim about its own video games on Xbox when compared to PlayStation? And do you discover yourself concurring or disagreeing with what has been said? Let me know either down in the comments or shoot me a message on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

While there have actually been a handful of solid Xbox exclusives over the previous few years, PlayStation has more regularly been knocking it out of the park with its own titles. Xbox might have a much brighter future ahead, specifically if it’s able to finish this purchase of Activision-Blizzard, for the time being, even Microsoft isn’t ready to declare that it’s doing much better than Sony.

In an unexpected new statement from Microsoft, the company has actually admitted that PlayStation has better exclusives than those seen on Xbox. For approximately twenty years, video game fans have argued about whether PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo regularly provide the best special titles. And while there’s no objective fact to be discovered with this debate, it appears like even Microsoft believes that PlayStation has a leg up on Xbox at the minute.

As mentioned in a new document handling Microsoft’s ongoing effort to acquire Activision-Blizzard, the mega-corporation outright stated that Sony has more exclusive games than Microsoft, many of which are much better quality. While this might look like an extremely bizarre thing for Microsoft to say, it deserves keeping in mind that the company is only doing so as a way of attempting to convince regulators that its purchase of Activision-Blizzard should go through. Essentially, by arguing that Sony has much better exclusives, Microsoft thinks that it will make regulators more available to authorizing its offer to acquire the publisher behind Call of Responsibility.
