I still see it as a snub to fans. Just like everything else they aren’t going to this year. GDC tends to have some news that lights up the forums regarding next gen, especially on a launch year. Ignoring that requires some mental gymnastics as well. Once again I admire the sheer loyalty it takes to support Sony on what I genuinely believe to be a string of snubs.
This is quite a petty reply. Resorting to calling out others as being fanboys 'loyal' is just a poor excuse to undermine what they have to say. If anything, it only shows how hollow your own words actually ring that you can't use anything with actual substance.
I'm actually working in the SEA region atm, and understanding why companies like Sony and Facebook are cancelling appearances comes from a perspective of the real threat the virus has on this region.
That said, there is a myriad of other ways that PS owners can expect to receive news. Youtube, Instagram and especially the PS Blog have all been viable ways to disseminate info. No one needs a showing at PAX for PS4 coverage. No one needs GDC to hear insider speak/ rumours to float around about what is up with the PS5.Last edited by twintail - on 23 February 2020
