Microsoft's deal is largely about securing games past, present and future for Xbox Game Pass, Eurogamer editor Oli wrote last week.
Microsoft's monumental acquisition of Bethesda, id Software, Arkane Studios, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks' parent company, ZeniMax Media, was announced earlier this week in a deal worth $7.5bn.
Microsoft deepens their bench instantly with one of the most experienced companies in entertainment software (during a time when video game sales are at an all-time high), and Bethesda gets the benefit of concentrating their creative firepower on software that feeds the Microsoft pipelines," Weaver said.
As spotted by our pals at VGC, in an interview with Inverse, Weaver said "what Microsoft owns, Sony cannot get", adding "there are only a limited number of proven creators of AAA".
Bethesda founder Christopher Weaver has opened up about the $7.5bn acquisition of the publisher's parent company, Zenimax Media, stating the deal is "an extremely interesting acquisition on the part of both groups".

"We're excited to celebrate games and game creators alongside film, immersive, music, art, and more at next year's Festival."
Where there was once a clear delineation between media, there is now a blurring of the lines - stories have become games and games have become stories," explained Tribeca Film Festival co-founder and CEO, Jane Rosenthal.
"In the ten years since we first welcomed a game to Tribeca's official program, we've seen an exciting convergence of games, film, and immersive experiences.
Though a handful of games have been recognised over the years - since LA Noire was recognised as an Official Selection in 2011, other games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Firewatch, What Remains of Edith Finch, and God of War have followed - next year's festivals marks the first in the event's history to open submissions for video games as well as an all-new honour, the Tribeca Games Award.
Tribeca Film Festival will recognise video games as "official selections" from Wolfkill and Hideo Kojima are amongst members of the festival's new gaming Film Festival is expanding its call for submissions to video games for the very first time.
You can spend a lot of time studying techniques, reading gear reviews, and viewing the work of other photographers, but a certain personality trait is probably more important than any of those for becoming a better photographer.
This great video discusses that trait and why it can help you improve as a photographer.
Coming to you from James Popsys, this awesome video discusses the importance of being willing to be persistent and consistent in going out to photograph, even if you have no guarantees of coming home with usable images.
It can certainly be tempting to stay home and wait for only the most ideal conditions, but that does not really help you improve as a photographer as much as consistent practice, even (and perhaps especially) when conditions are less than perfect.
Furthermore, shooting in less-than-ideal conditions can help you learn to create compelling images no matter what you have to work with and can even help you shoot more original photos by embracing scenarios other photographers might choose to skip.

Patrick S. Ryan, a technical program manager in TikTok’s Mountain View, California office, also claimed the ban would have affected his income: “Ryan is concerned that he could be prosecuted for receiving a paycheck from TikTok ... or alternatively that TikTok will decline to pay him for fear of violating the Executive Order,” according to court filing.
Earlier this month, a judge in the Northern District of California rejected a similar request for a temporary restraining order against the ban brought by a TikTok employee.
“They will still be able to create, publish, and share content for their millions of current followers” Judge Wendy Beetlestone said that the ban would pose “undoubtedly an inconvenience,” but said in denying the request that the three had failed to prove they would suffer “immediate, irreparable harm” if new downloads are barred, since the app would remain operational for current subscribers —at least for the time being—if the ban takes effect.
