Just a nitpick on that list, there is no region locking on Xbox since 2013 (cept China, but that doesn't count).

Also that Spider-Man 2 at E3 thing is kinda funny given todays announcement.

Would it be crazy to see them buy harmonix?
Not worth it. Harmonix already releases games on Xbox.
MS would be better off buying Platinum and From Soft. Some of their games don't release on Xbox.
That would give MSGS 2 very strong Japanese devs that they could expand on. At the same time Xbox won't miss out on any of their games and would also prevent Sony from buying them out. Win, win, win for MGS and Xbox.

They better not buy From Software

From Soft and Platinum make the most sense for MS because they are well respected Japanese devs that make games that sell well on Xbox.
The other Japanese devs or Pubs that make sense are too big to purchase without the Japanese government getting involved. Sega,
Capcom and Konami also make sense but the Japanese government won't allow a USA based company to purchase those huge historically Japanese companies.

Because MS don't use the big devs right.
I am anti-gamepass so that doesn't help.
Why would you be anti-gamepass?
Are you also against Capitalism and free markets?

Also MS not using the Big devs right was most likely a thing of the past.
Phil SPencer's XBGS will improve on this.

I like my freedom and I like owning my games.

I hope it's a thing of the past cause so much talents been wasted.

Game pass is awesome. And owning your games if you want to is awesome and still possible on Xbox.
Of course we still have the option to buy our games or else it would be suicide for the XB business.
Don't think for one second if this took the gaming scene by storm that MS wouldn't take away those freedoms.
We saw hints of this last gen with the attempt of blocking used games(blew up in there face) and kinect needing to be plugged in s***(didn't last long) they pulled in the beginning of the gen.
