I think there is some short sighted thinking here on VG... over at resetera a few of us are thinking why this might be the case.

Early 2020 (march) launch for Ps5, why do E3, too early for talk about PS5...some negativity of course but its the end of the PS4/Xbox gen whatever MS shows wont impact this gen's sales (especially if a new console is then out by the next E3). Sony will have a show in September to talk about PS5.

No point going to E3 to talk about PS4 games that everyone already knows about, people will be people and just moan.

I believe you are right, outside of one thing.  PS5 will come holiday 2020, not early 2020.  Change my mind...

wow seems like many people don't care about E3 anymore. I still love it. The hype and just the amount of exciting news at once is always great. I don't care what this means or doesn't mean for Sony and their competition. I just love E3 and next year will not have one of the greats.

Putting people's bias aside, I'll always love the presence of video games in mainstream media during this short week. Also, lots of announcements to be excited about. I mean with the last showing from Sony and them preparing themselves for the next generation, would we really want them to just repeat the same pull as last year ? Doubt people would be crying in excitement this time ...

The introduction of a new gen was never held back by events focusing on previous gen consoles.

Not holding a PSX this year? Ok. Not even being at E3? That's not ok.
I can get they not doing a press conference, but not being there altogether? It just doesn't make sense. If MS has enough stuff to show at E3, Sony has have at least as much.
They got to be preparing something (not PS5 related) next year, otherwise, missing E3 just doesn't make sense.

Well their E3 this year didn't hurt. They are still breaking records.

December 3rd 1994 the ps1 launched. Hopefully they host PSX 2019 on that date to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

Will they announce ps5 there with a 2020 release date? Possibly.

I agree with their decision cancelling psx and e3. What's the point of showing 2 more trailers for Death Stranding, TLOU2, Ghost of tsutshima, dreams etc. Yeah it would be good for 3rd parties but for this stage of the gen aka the final 2 years, 1 event per year is enough.

You may well be right, that would also make perfect sense. Skip E3 in June 2019, push out some updates and then PSX or early showing 2020 for end of year release. Still makes sense, I think that all depends on when Sony have their own shows in 2019, that will make it easier to spot potential early or late 2020 release.

The showcase of their games was still important though. Spiderman was one of their prolific games there and how did it do ? Amazing numbers. I don't think it's time to undermine E3's importance with how much  mindshare it can still create for their games.

Nintendo already won E3 2019!

But that's kind of shocking yet understandable. On one hand, as of now you don't need E3 to get the word out there, online live presentations get more views than people that can attend. But on the other, this is not looking good for E3.
