Forums - Sony Discussion - PSX not happening this year

The annual show Sony held for PlayStation won't take place this year.

Layden made the announcement on the PlayStation Blogcast, saying "For 2018, I know this is going to be a disappointment to some people, but we decided to not hold PlayStation Experience this year."

"We won't have it in the States this year," he continued. "The reasons behind that really are we don't have...we have a lot of progress that we're making on our games...Now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we're looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone.

"But we wouldn't have enough to bring people all together in some location North America to have that event. We don't want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on that. It was a hard decision, but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience.

Personally, it saddens me that there won't be one this year. But at the same time, the show would be redundant if the announcements were gonna be given on The Game Awards days before.

No PSX in 2018. and "now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we're looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone",
sound like Sony is definitely start focusing on PS5.

Lack of audience or lack of announcements? A bit confused..

Definitely seems like PS5 is right around the corner then. They wouldn't skip Paris Games Week and PSX this year unless they had no games to announce, and if they have no games to announce it's because they've already announced all of the remaining PS4 games (Ghost of Tsushima, TLOU 2, Death Stranding, Concrete Genie, Dreams, etc.) and are concentrating on developing PS5 games now, and they don't want to spoil those PS5 games before PS5 itself is announced. PS5 Holiday 2019 release is my guess after this news.

When you have nothing to show, it makes sense. It sucks for me though. I made the last two years like a mini vacation that involved Disneyland+VGA+PSX, made it a fun week the last two years, so no psx is a bummer for me.

But like others said,yeah this seems like PS5 announcement is 2019 possibility

I think it makes sense. Sony stretched themselves too thin with three shows, with the last few feeling lackluster.

This will allow them to load up their cannons for E3 2019.

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.

thats ashame, was looking forward to it after the disappointment at e3. then again not a fan of layden. so i guess thats a positive of not having to see him on stage.


There wont be one in 2018 and it will still be better than the 2017 one...

I'm expecting the rest of the year and 2019 to be underwhelming when it comes to new game announcements. The industry is getting ready for next gen in 2020.

that stinks

God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
