This one needs more than a few grains of salt but it is possible the Microsoft store might be looking at a significant expansion. Phil Spencer, once head of XBone and now Executive Vice President of Gaming is taking his role seriously and may be looking to grow Microsoft's presence in gaming. The company certainly has enough money to purchase all three companies, and in the case of EA they may actually improve the usefulness of Origin. Valve on the other hand has already mastered the art of online game distribution, unless Microsoft is willing to go with something 'not invented here' that Steam library of yours may be in some peril. This is pure rumour but that doesn't mean you can't fan the flames at The Inquirer, Polygon or below.
"SOMEONE HAS GIVEN the rumour mill an almighty kick as it's been suggested that Microsoft is considering buying-up game publishing behemoths EA and Steam, along with PUBG Corp."
