Yes you have read that article headline correctly; Microsoft has registered the domain names of Microsoft-Sony.com and Sony-Microsoft.com respectively with both of them being registered this month. The internet is already rife with rumors as to what it could mean with a lot of people thinking that a joint console between the two companies is on the cards and let’s face it, a combined Microsoft/Sony console would be one hell of a gaming machine.
Other less likely scenarios include Microsoft has bought Sony or vice versa and an even more unlikely scenario is that Nintendo has bought them both, and decided to merge them into one gargantuan company. However the way Nintendo is going I think them taking over both Microsoft and Sony could bring down the games industry (and the apocalypse) but thankfully that is unlikely to happen.
Anyway, until an announcement is made we shall continue to speculate and many a conspiracy theory shall appear so it’s best that you stay away from the internet for a while in order to retain your sanity.
