    What? What makes you assume that? Mai du, just becuase someone doesn't want to spend money, doesn't mean their broke.


    Dude, buy some glasses--I have to quote myself, enlarge the text and change the color before you just drop points.

    Ser-a-us-lee, write to Sony and ask them to go to E3. Time well spent.

    I think it has more to do with E3 now allowing regular people and they only want to reveal their new tech in an enclosed safe area only and only filled with journo's because Sony are pricks.

    Xbox will be at E3 2020, Phil Spencer confirms.

    Think about reasons why Sony might be scared to attend. It's not to save a few dollars. Microsoft will make the most of the money they spend on E3.

    PlayStation has used E3 as the place to unveil details of its next consoles since the very beginning, attending the first E3 in 1995 to detail the US launch of the original PlayStation. The company's success at E3 2013 was viewed as a major moment in the build-up to PS4, which resulted in Sony reclaiming its market leadership from Xbox.

    Absolutely nothing stops them from doing both, so they are just delaying. The reason they give is usual corporate bullshit.

    I just wanted to make sure you had nothing.

    sony skipped last year too becuase they were scared of microsoft even tough they were destroying them?

    Nowadays a news travels faster and reaches more people on twiter than e3, sure back then there wasnt much awareness but today a simple reveal online goes very very far, farther than e3 really.

    1. They'd rather spend the money on a Super Bowl commercial.
    2. They don't want dudes like you touching the PS5 controller.
    3. It's Sony (SCE), not smf Enterprises--if they don't want to attend, they don't want to attend and I don't blame them. I could imagine the things a guy like you would ask them, how little they'd care, and how quickly they'd escort you to "the mall"....but then I see what you write here and lose interest. O, a cloud passed by.

    65 million years ago, dinosaurs became "extinct". Geeze, I hope they didn't keep doing the same shit for 165,000,000 years while on Earth.



    I got jokes, mang. Funny or not, but your "ass"umptions are.....o, the same cloud passed by--maybe it's a cloud!?
    BTW, instead of dropping your points once I quote myself, this new thing of responding with some weak schoolyard comeback is not you, doggs....unless it is.:sad:

    Honestly, this has gone on long enough--please, stop trying to b8 and go b8 elsewhere.

    I have made some relevant points and you just keep being a dick for no reason.

    Another one for the ignore list I guess.

    They didn't have a new console coming out last year to promote, so it's a very different scenario.

    How you are doing at the time of e3 is largely irrelevant, it's a showcase for what you have coming up over the next year or two. It's like Sony either don't have confidence in showing that, don't want Microsoft to see it, or they haven't decided on the final PS5 specification and aren't ready to commit to a specific performance level. I'm sure we'll find out.

    But if it's because "the vision of the show isn't right" then either they are lying or have really shitty marketing department now and neither of those things are good news.

    They are skipping because they know the boos will expose their censorial redundant ways.
    Sony is no longer the people's champ. It is the SJW fembot's mouthpiece from now.
    It has put many developers out of business because a large portion of their userbase, was the PS4 installbase. Since the censorship, many Japanese devs had to close up shop, or move to a different platform where they were making a significant amount less, and had to lay off many a dev.

    They're missing the single biggest gaming spotlight of the year to save what should be, if they are financially sucessful as their console sales suggest, a few bucks?

    Think bigger.
    It may be a "loss", but is it really?
    What do they gain out of doing E3?
    For that matter, tell me, how do you spend your money?

    I'm sure if you was a regular visitor to e3 you'd be a bit pissed off not seeing all the big heads ther-e3 is a time wher every company should get together and show us what they got in store - it's as simple as tht

    Why? It is an expensive location and event run by one of the trade associations in the US, and its relevance has been questionable for many years now, to say nothing of general company abilities to reach out and touch the world.
