No PSX this year and no E3 show next year.

seems like a fine idea if they are going to replace it with something else, even if it's smaller. they really don't have anything else to prove this gen. They have Days Gone, Dreams, Last of Us 2, Death Stranding and Ghosts of Tshuisma for the next two years, which is a good lineup to end the gen with. Also means the PS5 reveal should be an absolute blowout of new games.

PS5 2020 is a lock

Wow that's nuts. This probably means that most of the PS4 exclusives that don't have a release date will be launching on PS5 and will will most likely be cross gen. So death stranding, TLOU2, Ghosts of tsushima and whatever else they have.

Like this wasn't obvious already.



Much, much better article than the Kotaku or Variety one -- https://www.gameinformer.com/2018/11/14/sony-interactive-entertainment-is-not-attending-e3-in-2019

 

“As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for inventive opportunities to engage the community," the company told Game Informer in a statement. "PlayStation fans mean the world to us and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 in 2019. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can’t wait to share our plans with you.”

When asked if Sony would push its event off-site, similar to how Electronic Arts provides a show adjacent to E3, PlayStation senior vice president of communications Jennifer Clark elaborated further saying, "We will not activate or hold a press conference around E3."



Wow..if that’s true it’ll give even more fuel for possible PS5 announcements in 2019, with a spring 2019 reveal at a separate event.
What else could be the cause for this? So they won’t even have games to try out at E3?

Imho this clearly hints at a new, separate event. Most likely for PS’s 25th anniversary next year.

I can't imagine where you got that conclusion from. this news only means that "playstation will not participate in E3 2019", just this! Any other deduction is just speculations or nonsenses



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.

Good. No point in blowing cash and manpower on an event when leaks tell you everything you need to know anyways.



Excuse me, but.. WHAT the hell is Sony doing lately? I mean, probably there is no concern and they are gearing up for PS5. But damn, this is just bad optics. At least announce something else with it. You already did away with PSX. Just bad optics.



E3 is done for.
If you are leaving E3 why the fuck would you cancel PSE Sony?
I don't want any direct like stuff, hold a proper event like PSE was...
Seriously, no major events until late next year? What are they thinking?



Man ps5 going to come out of the gates swinging it looks like.
