Game edition Polygon laid out a lot of material about the internal kitchen of the game division of Microsoft. It turned out that the company is very concerned about the fact that the PlayStation 4 is sold in 2 times more successful than Xbox One, so in Microsoft wants to turn the game over by buying some very large studio.
Moreover, the choice of Microsoft is extremely serious and with the parties do not gives in to some kind of analysis. Polygon sources talk about that it can be like a studio author of a creepy fashion shooter PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and all the office of Electronic Arts with giblets. AND Here, while everything is relatively logical - companies do not enough bright game titles, and buying something so big and bright can return attention to Xbox.
So The source claims that in Microsoft is side of buying Valve, the good of money there is enough. AND this is no longer quite understandable. Valve has long given up all attention to Steam and edition of games for PC, and Microsoft has long ago scored on this market. Is that Valve does Half-Life 3, and Microsoft wants to make it an exclusive for Xbox. But we rather believe in the fact that Jesus returned and works as a plumber in Cincinnati.
It is interesting that such information did not slip through only Polygon. Head of the analytical company SuperData Research Joust van Drenen expects that the official announcement of any purchase of Microsoft will happen very soon. By he said the head of the gaming unit Phil Spencer dissatisfied with the state of affairs and I am ready to invest a lot of resources.
