Gamers Warned To 'Choose Console Carefully' By Retailer After Xbox Activision Deal

It's safe to say the Xbox Activision deal has been a bit of a bombshell. If it goes through, it'll change the industry, so much so that Belgian retailer Cora has supposedly been warning customers over which console to buy.

As spotted by HazzadorGamin on Twitter, an employee sign was placed right in front of the PlayStation section at one of the chain's stores. Translated, it reads "Notice to gamers, Microsoft has bought Activision! Choose your machine carefully".

The store also added a little note about Call of Duty, presumably to let customers know that one of the biggest franchises in gaming might not be on PlayStation in the near future. We know CoD will be on PlayStation for at least a few more years, but beyond that, we'll have to wait and see.

If stores are anything like they are here in the UK, this could be a one-off store notice or a disgruntled employee. Usually, retailers are happy to take your money for either system, if you can actually find any PS5 or Xbox Series X consoles.

Would a deal like this stop you buying the competing console? Let us know in the comments.
