Today the deals to buy Blizzard Activision by Microsoft have not closed, and at the moment we talk about promises to carry some Nintendo console franchises and services such as GeForce Now.
And now, something interesting has been proposed but that it does not end up convincing, since it is a strange contract.

For their part, Google and Sony do not want the sale to be closed.
