The Microsoft Activision-Blizzard buyout soap opera is still going on. The Redmond Company prepares Confront the FTC But now, the protagonist is New Zealand.

Thanks I was able to see this information Tom WarrenObviously, New Zealand is concerned about the video game market and how the Activision-Storm purchase could affect that growth.
