Sony is just crazy dominating right now, and has spiderman coming.
Nintendo has a long list of IPs any of which can dominate a year. Don't need E3 to spread that message.
Microsoft has had two games come out this year, both sitting under 70. I don't expect Crackdown 3 to do much better, and it feels like Fortnite is stealing all of PUBGs thunder.
So they need E3 to show they can still compete. And now with more third party, and timed exlusives.
I mean, it's not like PUBG failed on Xbox or anything, they have already sold past five million copies. It was a good a good get for them.
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
