Sony Stock Took a $20 Billion Hit After Xbox’s Activision Deal – IGN Daily Fix

Today on IGN The Fix: Games,

Sony’s stock reportedly took a $20 billion dollar hit after Xbox announced that it is set to acquire Activision Blizzard. As detailed in a report by Bloomberg, Sony Group Corp. shares reportedly fell by 13% in Tokyo on Wednesday – just a day after Microsoft announced its $68.7 billion deal with Activision Blizzard. As per the report, the drop itself is the largest single fall in Sony stock since October 2008.

Activision Blizzard reportedly considered buying video game media outlets Kotaku and PC Gamer in a bid to change public opinion of the company. A new report published by the Wall Street Journal delving into the circumstances surrounding Microsoft’s recent acquisition of the publisher alleges that Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick may have discussed attempting to purchase a video game publication prior to the deal in order to change his company’s public image.

Germany tops 100,000 daily infections +++ Hong Kong culls hamsters | COVID latest

As the omicron variant spreads, the number of COVID-19 cases has also surged rapidly in Turkey. The country’s health ministry reported nearly 70,000 new cases on Tuesday – one of the highest daily figures since the pandemic began. The government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan now hopes its locally made "Turkovac" jab will convince vaccine-hesitant Turks to roll up their sleeves. "Turkovac" received emergency use approval from Turkish authorities in December and is now being administered to the public. But experts have serious doubts about the vaccine’s effectiveness.

Germany reported 112,323 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, the latest new 24-hour record and the first daily tally north of 100,000. The national disease control body, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), published the figures early in the morning. The country’s weekly incidence rate has now reached 584.4 new infections per 100,000 people over a seven-day period, the RKI reported. The institute registered 239 deaths connected to COVID, a reduction from the 384 reported on the previous Wednesday. The hospitalization rate rose, but only slightly, to 3.17 people per 100,000 per week, versus 3.13 one week ago.

Hong Kong health authorities on Tuesday said about 2,000 hamsters and chinchillas needed to be put down after COVID-19 infections were traced back to a pet store. At least 11 hamsters tested positive for the COVID-19, and a store employee was also infected with the delta variant, according to officials. People who purchased hamsters from the store after December 22 have been instructed to hand over the animals to be destroyed, and not to set them free on the streets. Those who had been in contact with the animals would also have to quarantine.
