Sony Stock Value Takes Huge Hit After Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard

Not to stoke the console war flames, but it looks like Sony is in the middle of dealing with the Xbox Activision Blizzard purchase. After news of the deal dropped yesterday, January 18th, Sony stock plummeted overnight.

In total, shares in Sony have lowered by 13 percent in the wake of the deal. Bloomberg noted that this drop equates to about $20 billion in market value. Ouch.

It's not really a surprise to see confidence in Sony and PlayStation drop after such a huge deal for Xbox. The amount is quite shocking mind, although our concept of money has been completely skewed after the Activision deal, to be honest.
