The acquisition of Activision Blizzard from Microsoft seems to have scared Sony investors. The shares of the Japanese company have fallen by more than 10% over the past few hours and the Redmond giant could prove to be a big deal to eat. Some analysts theorizing that Sony e Nintendo they could implement acquisitions in turn for safety.
Sony and Nintendo: new acquisitions in sight?
The decline in Sony shares is not all that strong, but a belly action by the Japanese company is not to be ruled out. The stock of Activision Blizzard and most importantly, its success in mobile games could make the business of Microsoft really very competitive, if exploited properly, and it makes sense to think that both Sony and Nintendo can feel threatened.
The activities of Sony in the electronics and film sector are certainly well established, but it is gaming that drives the growth of the company and the same goes for Nintendo. At the moment it seems that these two companies will have to make much more serious investments to keep up with the Redmond giant, even if the direction they will take is not yet clear.
However, one of the sectors on which Microsoft could become a real world power is that of gaming on mobile devices, given that Activision counts among its studies several renowned companies for development on smartphones. A striking example of this is King, the developer of Candy Crush, which once the negotiations are concluded will be under the direct control of the Redmond giant, which could become a tough competitor even for Tencent.
