Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony cancelling PAX East 2020 attendance due to coronavirus concerns

Apparently the PUBG devs are pulling out of PAX East.

I'm starting to think that Sony, you know a multi-billion dollar company, may actually know more about this than I do.

So Sony, CD Project Red, PUBG corp, Capcom, Square Enix and EA re all not attending.

I guess everyone has something to hide, if some other posters are to be believed.

CD Project Red also pulled out of Pax as well. This should send the conspiracy theory and haters back into their hole for the time being, hopefully for the next decade again though...

Meh not really. CD isn’t releasing a new console this year and can be as camera shy as they want. Where as the internet gets more tense by the day as PS fans are becoming frustrated that Xbox gets all the news and Sony seemingly fell off the face of the Earth 

lol dude please, your posts are becoming more wild as the days go on. 

At this point MS fans are probably giving the PS5 more air wave time than they are the new XSX.

But... You’re not a PS fan...

Square Enix will be there...

They scaled back their presence though. So its a smaller group than orginally planned.



Better to cancel the whole thing at this point.

It's getting pretty clear that the virus is going to spread regardless, but it's still better to slow it down as much as possible

Trump is going to address it in about 12 minutes, meanwhile San Francisco has already declared a state of emergency.

According to Kotaku Microsoft and Epic just backed out of GDC due to concerns (though they still plan to live stream any panels they would have).

So  are you still blaming SONY or blaming   Corona now?

Logic dictates I blame corona now. If one backed out and the other didn’t I could argue one was being overly cautious. But now that’s not the case.

So, just to be sure, Sony is still Doomed and Microsoft still have the upper hand right??

 Nah Sony fine. A current PR imbalance is nothing in the grand scheme
