Sony reveals trade secrets to its biggest competitor

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has asked Sony to turn over trade secrets to Microsoft. It’s possible this will help the Redmond giant prepare a proper line of defense regarding the Activision Blizzard acquisition.

All the fuss surrounding Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard could bring some pretty unexpected results for competitors who tried to shut down the whole process. It turns out that Sony was forced to leak trade secrets to its biggest rival, which of course is the giant from Redmond.

In this post we learn, among other things: via Insider Gaming, which reports that Sony has been asked to disclose information directly by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). In view of the above, the Japanese company should provide details on, among others, exclusive contracts.

Nevertheless, Sony is not in the worst possible situation, as the company has managed to protect some of the materials requested by Microsoft. This one is most likely asking for specific information in order to prepare an appropriate line of defense. Insider Gaming points out that the American giant is trying to show the world that its actions are not intended to lead to a monopoly, for example by making its productions available in the NVIDIA GeForce Now service, which we have informed you about.

Needless to say, the whole thing looks very interesting. There’s a chance that Microsoft will actually get the information that can help it in the fight against opponents of the Activision Blizzard takeover. We may be getting closer to finalizing one of the biggest and most important events in the world of electronic entertainment.
