Who has Phil Spencer, the big boss of Xbox, with a large pillowcase full of cash Want to see you sneaking around Brussels? Sources at Reuters say they know that the European Union is going to give permission to Microsoft to acquire Activision. America has never stood in the way of large multinationals, the EU would be much stricter.

Well, not at all, provided the rumors are true (yes.).
