A ‘leak’ reported in a Spanish portal ‘Microsofters’ and later translated into English said Microsoft had acquired Sony in a $130 bn deal. The said deal entailed Microsoft acquiring various divisions — Sony Pictures, Sony Music, PlayStation, mobile phone, patents, and camera and TV. Mention of Microsoft’s VP of Gaming, Phil Spencer made the report sounding convincing. But it turns out, the report is fake. Simply said, Microsoft has NOT acquired Sony.
