The E3 it is not what it used to be, this is clear. The rise of the Internet and the increasingly frequent gaming events during the year have taken the importance of the fair in Los Angeles, so much so that Nintendo, a few years ago, decided not to hold a conference any more but to just Direct, with presence but in the pavilions.
Turning much more drastic instead is that of SonyIn fact, the Japanese company has announced and will miss the E3 2019 altogether. No conference, no console station, no "near" presentation, as happened with Electronic Arts.
Simply Sony will disappear from the E3 radar next year, except of course third-party ads for his home console. A strong signal that will surely make the losangelina fair lose even more enamel, but that leads everyone to think of something dedicated to PlayStation 5 which, unless unforeseen, should be presented just next year.
PlayStation fans are very much for us and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to entertain players. As a result, we decided not to participate in the E3 2019. We are thinking about new ways to engage our community next year and we look forward to sharing our plans with you.
With these words Sony sends the appointment to all his fans in the 2019, but not all 'E3.
