CoD is by far the most popular game on the market. It doesn't matter whether you or I like it (I never even ever played it myself), it's just the way it is. CoD sales are even used as a benchmark of the health of the entire video game market. In a company presentation that I attended recently (at a subsidiary of a large game publisher), they explained us that during the past fiscal year, the entire gaming market was doing poorly, and that a definite sign of those market wide problems was that CoD sales weren't as good as usual.

So yeah a hardware manufacturer controlling that franchise would definitely create competition issues.
