Hmm.  Of the anti-competitive mergers out there, this didn't really set off any alarm bells, although I guess it should have.  Nowhere near as bad as, say, the T-Mobile/Sprint merger, IMHO.

Meh. Consumers aren't going to lose anything in this deal. If anything, Microsoft will force what's left of Activision into being closer to the decent company they started out as. It could hardly get any worse.
