Geoff Keighly, host of the Summer Game Festival and Summer Game Awards has warned that there are “some other big video game deals” nearing completion.

The gaming industry has been adopting a consolidation trend for the past few years, but these efforts have never received as much attention as they do now. After MicrosoftProposal to buy back of Activision Blizzard with a staggering $68.7 billion sent shockwaves throughout the vehicle, Sony objected to the move by buying Bungie – the developer of Life – for $3.6 billion.

Acquiring other major game developers or publishers is out of the question right now, especially after PlayStation boss Jim Ryan reiterated that Bungie won’t be the final item in the series. Sony’s current shopping spree, makes us wonder if the US and other European countries partner antitrust laws can really prevent the demise of monopolies in the gaming industry.
