Over the years, as sports fans tried to skull out some hypothetical, any hypothetical, that could deliver a simulation baseball game on Xbox One, inevitably someone would wonder why Sony wouldn’t just make MLB The Show for Xbox anyway, if there was no competing product over there. “Wouldn’t they sell more and make more money?” was the armchair logic.
Sure, I always thought, and occasionally replied. Why doesn’t Chevy make parts for Ford, too? Wouldn’t they sell more and make more money, too?
That’s what makes last week’s news so forehead-smacking. The exact thing I disparaged as an idle or uninformed forum argument actually came true. Shows you what the hell I know!
