I'll share some key quotes here.

"The U.S. antitrust agencies have rarely sought to enjoin
vertical mergers and have lost every recent case when they tried. Indeed, the FTC is asking this Court to be the first in decades to find a vertical merger unlawful."

As for the foreclosure theory (withdrawing CoD from rival platforms): they say the court doesn't just have to take their word for it.

"This is the exceptional case where the Court can rely on actions rather than words."

They point to commitment to bring ABK games to Game Pass; CoD deal with Nintendo; offer to Valve, and Valve said they could rely on Microsoft anyway; various cloud streaming agreements; commitment to EC (but valid worldwide) re. streaming rights; and parity offer to #Sony

#Dow plastered #Singapore with ads for a sneaker #recycling program, promising to turn shoes into playground tracks. But the shoes it collected in "recycling" bins got dumped illegally in #Indonesia. This isn't strange: it's how nearly *all* plastic recycling *always* worked. 1/ A woman kneeling to tie her running shoe. She stands on a ba

@purbini @beinsports_FR La visibilité = Match accessible au plus grand nombre, et donc en clair, et au prix le plus bas!

Vous êtes vraiment tous à coté de la plaque les journaleux tellement corporatistes, bourgeois, pistonnés/cooptés.. opportunistes.
Tu cherches du boulot chez beinTV ?!
@purbini @beinsports_FR C'est comme les gars de l'#EDS #EDG réservés, à l'époque sur les intentions de #PrimeVideo (comparé à "l'Historique" Canal+ & gentil beinTV ) pour la #L1.
@purbini @beinsports_FR Ils étaient encore traumatisés d'avoir léché le cul au milliard annuel d'imposture de MediaPro alors que nous "sale populace/grand public" avions vu l'arnaque arriver....
Mais là aussi évidemment, "après" tous ces journaleux retournaient leur veste...

1/ The CMA has published "Market Participant A", which is largely a proponent of the MSFT + ATVI merger. There is heavy emphasis on the fact that the merger would actually benefit consumers with a wider array of access, options, and prices.…
2/ You should read it yourself to get the best understanding, the "core" of the pro-consumer argument is as follows.

- Wider Choice
- Lower Cost for Consumer (in some ways, not all)
- No incentive for foreclosure Image
3/ Market Participant A also disputes the invincible market power of #CallofDuty, calling attention to CoD Vanguard. The industry changes rapidly, essentially, and one franchise shouldn't be labeled as carrying this much "power" (so to speak). Image

Due anni fa @BebeRexha, famosa cantante e compositrice (ha collaborato tra gli altri con #Eminem, #Rihanna, #NickiMinaj, #Pitbull, #LouisTomlinson, #geazy, #DavidGuetta, ecc.) ha detto che PER VINCERE i Grammy SI PAGA.

#GRAMMYs #sony #maneskin #showbiz #billboard #charts
@BebeRexha #Grammys, parte 2 🏆

Nel 2021 @ZaynMalik, ex #OneDirection, ha parlato di razzismo, favoritismi, interferenze e mancanza di trasparenza nonché di regali e mani da stringere per ottenere le nomination ai GRAMMY.

#showbiz #racism #maneskin #billboard #spotify #charts
@BebeRexha @zaynmalik #Grammys, parte 3 🏆

Dopo le accuse di corruzione e "comitati segreti" da parte di @theweeknd, la @RecordingAcad ha cambiato le regole ma Abel, coerentemente, 2 anni dopo ha continuato a ignorarli non presentandosi a ritirare il premio.
Anche @Drake e @silksonic li boicottano.

A pretty quiet day for $BTC as it showed lagging performance while so much noise was created in the #crypto space today.

In @coin360com Daily Digest:
2/ Both S&P 500 and Nasdaq saw the green today due to strong earning reports from @GoldmanSachs and the market was waiting for more, but $BTC marked a 0.3% drop.

$740M in #BTC outflow from exchanges on Oct 18 (@cryptoquant_com) didn't seem to push a clear move for the price.

Sony reduz previsão de lucros da divisão de jogos em 2022: A receita diminuiu 2%, lucro diminuiu 37% 🔽

A empresa revisou sua previsão de lucro em 16%, de U$ 2,3 bilhões em maio para U$ 1,9 bilhão, "devido a uma queda esperada nas vendas de títulos First Party"
#Sony Image
Sony vendeu 2,4 milhões de unidades neste trimestre, contra 2,3 milhões no mesmo trimestre do ano passado. Isso significa que ele deve vender mais de 5 milhões de unidades em média para os próximos três trimestres para cumprir sua previsão de maio - algo que nunca fez antes Image
Do lado do software, as coisas também deram errado, pois a Sony vendeu apenas 47,1 milhões de títulos, incluindo 6,4 milhões de jogos First Party nesse Trimestre de 2022

Em comparação foram 63,6 milhões de títulos e 10,5 milhões de jogos First Party no mesmo trimestre de 2021 Image

Let us take a moment to appreciate the work Datel did 20 years ago, reverse engineering and developing their own playable unofficial PS2 DVD discs which contained the watermark and decryption key required to boot code which could not be done with a consumer DVD burner. A 🧵… 10 Classic Retro games PS2 Disc
Of course they are most famous of their Action Replay (AR) cheat devices, which would have never have received approval from Sony. Modifying memory in the way AR does would be too much of a security risk in terms of piracy/exploits
However unlike cartridge based versions it didn’t have the Code Creation capability and thus you were reliant on the codes created by the “CodeJunkies” team. You could get these codes either on the website or use the #PS2 modem to connect to the servers, that was a nice touch!

Here's a reason why investigative journalism is crucial in countries like #SriLanka where every system a citizen depends on has collapsed or is seriously compromised. This example is drawn from @OfficialSLC. Thread.
In September 2018, there was a financial scandal at Sri Lanka Cricket. Piyal Dissanayake, its chief financial officer, was sent on compulsory leave during inquiry into whether he instructed Sony Pictures Networks India (Pvt) Ltd to transfer US$ 5.5mn to an a/c in Hong Kong. (1)
The Hang Seng Bank a/c belonged to an entity named Fanya Silu Co Ltd and Dissanayake allegedly used his official email to authorise payment. His instructions said around Rs 93.3mn would be further credited automatically to a Banamex Bank a/c in #Mexico. (2)

Finally had a chance to do a thread about one of the more challenging shots I've ever animated for #vivomovie, but not for the reasons you'd expect. #animation #animtip
The shot is in the 'Own Drum' Sequence of Vivo. The conversation from the beginning - how do we make the dead pets look 2D? Different render and shader solutions were thrown out, but I raised my hand and asked - what if I just animate them in 2D?
#Sony sups decided to give it a go. We had to borrow some equipment and a #TVpaint license from SPA since my setup was only for 3D anim. My job- tackle the 2D characters as well as Gabi and the camera move. Dead pets pop up from their graves and follow Gabi as she plays the flute ImageImageImage

Hoy, sale a la venta en Europa la @PlayStation #PlayStation5 y hemos preparado un #HiloInfocaliptico con la historia de la compañía ¿Te gustaría saber cómo llegaron a ser una de las compañías más grandes de tecnología? Pues acompáñanos en esta historia. Dentro Hilo.
Primero hay que hablar de Masaru Ibuka y Akio Morita, quienes fundaron la compañía en 1946. Ambos se conocieron como ingeniero y físico, respectivamente, durante la segunda guerra mundial, formando parte del llamado Comité de Investigación de Japón Image

During #lockdown I used @lumatouch to edit on my #iPad 15 to 25 minutes stories each week for @asturiassemanal, a @RTPAOficial #TV show

This was the workflow we designed overnight to work from home.

A workflow we partly keep in case we need it again in the second #covid19 wave
At work, I used to edit on a PC with @Adobe Premier: an average of a 35’ to 40’ minutes story each 3-4 weeks.

We changed to focus on #covid19

At home I had an iPad Pro 9’7’’ 256 Gg with @lumatouch

I use it 6 weeks until I updated to an iPad Pro 12,9’’ 1 Th to gain capacity
The raw material changed also.

Apart from .MXF files filmed by my colleague with a #Sony FS7M2, we received files shot by our audience (as seen on the pic) with our guidance or by ourselves with the phone (.mp4 and .mov), GOPRO or whatever.

Hace un año viajé a Japón a cubrir #TokyoGameShow.

Hoy abrí por primera vez en meses una caja de folletos, volantes, catálogos y regalos promocionales varios. Algunos de estudios conocidos, otros más raros.

Acá va un tour por el (hasta ahora) último Tokyo Game Show presencial.
Makuhari Messe es una bestialidad. El salón principal, de 54.000 metros cuadrados, tiene ocho pabellones conectados, donde podés encontrar todos los estudios japoneses (y algunos no japoneses) que alguna vez amaste.

La guía es una SÁBANA.
Los 8 halls están divididos en tres zonas. La del medio es la más cotizada. Ahí están los estudios grandes (#Konami, #Sony, #BandaiNamco, una sección internacional, y el espacio del medio que se reparte entre empresas de telefonía celular y gaming mobile. Acá empieza el show.
