Lol... lower quality...That has already been caused by Activision purchasing Blizzard back in the days. With MS, it can only get better.
higher prices sure, but how could the quality get lower than this?
Higher prices and lower quality, so basically what we have right now? Someone should clue them into Activision's methods.
Blizzard has NO offices in the United Kingdom; MICROSOFT are in Berkshire (Reading, I believe) but the last vestige of a Blizzard presence - in the British Isles - was in Eire... and that got shut down within the last couple of years.
Less, choice, reduced quality? This is why having old people make the rules is a bad idea, Microsoft if anything would make things better, cheaper and easier to obtain.
They don't need an OK from the UK. If they want to be babies about it Microsoft can close up shop in the UK and move those offices elsewhere.
Did anyone else just learn that Blizzard owns Candy Crush?
