Layden actually stated they wouldn’t have enough new stuff to show, so they’d rather back out instead of delivering a disappointing show...we’ve all seen X018 a few days ago.
The more I think about it, the more a big 25th anniversary PSX in December, with possible PS5 announcement, seems to make sense. PS4 was announced in February, so what difference do 2 months make?
This, i realy think sony will make psx for 25th anniversary very especial, they are holding some new games and realease dates for the PS5 reveal at PSX 2019.
Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game" very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.
