Expected with the latest rumors but the bummer is that they made no mention of having their own event around E3. Instead they seem to just plan to attend other events like PAX, TGS etc.

Sony haven't even posted about not attending E3. If they have their own event they'll announce it themselves. 

I don't think this changes anything for the time being.

Wow. I didn't see this coming at all. Well, I guess E3 is pretty much dead then. On the bright side we might get a full PS5 reveal before E3 happens. We did with PS4, so there that.



The sentence below is false.

“We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year,” a spokesperson told GamesIndustry.biz."

So rumor has it Sony and ESA are not getting along. Whatever Sony wanted to do was not in line with what the ESA wanted.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

 Yeah, this is known. I recall Shawn Layden back in 2017 (PSX)  discontent with how the ESA were handling E3.

Iirc there were E3 2020 leaks that the ESA is planning to turn E3 to more of a fan event like Gamescom. Sony might have disagreed with that.



Around the Network

Oh bummer . But that's the reality then



That's a weird decision... I thought they would reveal the PS5 at E3.

Well, guess I'll have to watch Microsoft and Nintendo then.



Why attend E3, when you've already dropped your bombshell PS5 logo?



And E3 continues grow more and more irrelevant.
