Ehh, Microsoft made gaming global? What do you mean?
MS did a lot for online gaming, that''s for sure.. They also brought broader media features to consoles. And they are now in the process of connecting devices and breaking down walls between devices. (that's their current vision.)
But gaming was already a global industry well before MS jumped in.. And though they obviously contributed I don't think you can say their impact on making gaming more global after they joined global was more than the other two..
And if you're talking about casual markets I think Nintendo, Apple and Google had a much bigger impact in that area..
Maybe I just didn't get what you meant.
In any case, each of the three companies (and all the other secondary publishers and developers around them) has a big role in shaping gaming for the future, that's for sure.
