I'd modify the title. It buries the lead that Amazon and Facebook also aren't going.
Although I don't see anywhere in that article that Amazon isn't going.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

They have nothing to show. This is an end of an era of PlayStation dominance.

I'd also have included "China-based exhibitors have also had to either cancel their presence at GDC or send North American staff to run their booths. GDC said last week that that this has impacted 'around 10' of the 550 companies participating at the show. "

It feels like people are trying to paint a narrative that just Sony is cancelling stuff.

But it's in California, not central China.

Tell that to facebook and Amazon as well. I bet another major company will follow this. It's also difficult for them because they already pay the money to the EO (initial payment) because they already book place and stand. But health concern is the super top priority. Prevention is much cheaper than curing.

The Amazon stuff are from World Mobile Congress Event news. https://www.theverge.com/2020/2/10/21131118/mwc-2020-coronavirus-intel-sony-amazon-cancel

Ah I see - thanks.

Considering this isn’t just Sony, I’d update the thread title to include others.



                                                                                                             

Not surprising after PAX.

I do wonder if this is going to change how they formally show off the PS5. I would imagine an actual PS Meeting show will be off the cards now. SoP I suppose.
