Final Fantasy XVI Early Impressions, FTC Injunction On MS-ATVI Merger

  • Final Fantasy XVI is out! And I have some early spoiler-free impressions. I talk about the gameplay, story, and a surprising take on the diversity issue surrounding the game.
  • E3 has been cancelled in 2024 and 2025...At least in Los Angeles. Doesn't mean it won't happen elsewhere, but let's be honest, it's not very likely.
  • The FTC has sued to block the Microsoft-Activision merger, and the trial has started.
  • In emails released to the court, Sony said that they'd be okay and that they knew from the beginning it wasn't about exclusivity.
  • Sony testified that they would withhold PS6 devkits from Activision if there is a merger, meaning that Activision games would not be able to use PS6 specific features. (They already do not provide PS5 devkits to Mojang, which is why there is not a Minecraft version natively on PS5.)
  • Then we talk to Rob about Final Fantasy XVI and how the music in it is at least one of the final music packs for Theatrhythm: Final Bar Line.
