If I were still playing Elder Scrolls Online I might react to today's news differently. Plus, I never could get into Fallout or Skyrim. So Microsoft's announcement that the company is acquiring ZeniMax Media & Bethesda Softworks left me shrugging. Well, until I saw the price tag of $7.5 billion.
A lot of people will have profound thoughts about Microsoft vs Sony, etc. Me, I don't like consoles so most of the discussion is just academic. Interesting, but academic with little to no direct impact.
