    For hype and advertisement, it is silly not to attend. Personally though, I don't really care where they announce things.

    I never said it wasn't going to be announced at all. I simply meant it wasn't going to be announced at that E3.

    Well, it may be a sign that the thing has declined. And since nowadays you can watch videos online and get demons also online the E3 is losing relevance.

    Is not like Sony can't promote themselves.

    I'm really excited to see what they're going to announce whenever they go back into presenting new stuff. To be fairly honest, i wouldn't be surprised if this were them preparing for the PS5 release. It just sseems they want to gain time to get everything ready to show to the public, it's fair. Wonder what kind of hardware they pulled off this time, especially having in mind the fact they probably want something more powerful than the XBOX One X. Maybe they're planning native 4K at 60fps + some real good HDR? or something more than that? It seems they've been working on it for a crazy amount of time...

    But also, they've been neglecting the PS4 way too much imo. Maybe i'm just way too selective, but there has been super few good titles coming to the PS4, and anything Sony has announced officially has been pretty much ZZZZZ, with some exceptions here and there. I just hope they're preparing for something actually worth it.

    Disappointing! I was considering going to E3 this year but won't bother now. It seems E3 is going the way of the dodo.

    A shame really, E3 is one of my favourite times of the year watching the top dogs battle it out against each other. I'm sure Sony will have other plans like Nintendo's direct but it's just not the same

    Honestly, E3 has been slowly dying for years now. I wouldn't be shocked to see more companies dropping out over time until they finally end it.

    If E3 falls, which would be a shame honestly, at least we got The Game Awards.

    E3 is old news.... one of the things unable to move with the times of the internet

    don't see why this is a big deal

    Honnestly, the only booth that is gonna attract me at E3
    Is Nintendo's
    However, I'm autist and I really REALLY dislike crowd
    So, I think I'll never go there
    Crowds may make me panic

    I was thinking they could make this a pre-recorded presentation exclusive to PS-VR, can sell what is left on shelves

    God, Sony is always trying to copy Nintendo in some goddamn fashion.

    Well, this actually deals a near killing blow on E3 tho.

    It's so deep in here, some of you can't even see the floor anymore....

    I posted this elsewhere and seems more than appropriate here.

    If there was only someplace else for Sony & other companies to showcase their games.... :unsure::wacko:

    Oh right!

    PSX
    PAX West/East/AUS/South/Mars/Etc
    Gamescom
    Gamerawards
    San Deigo Comic Con
    TGS
    GDC
    SXSW
    Paris Games Week

    Where oh where will they be able to talk about their games now??? :wink::P

    Some of you like creating drama just for the sake of it...they're gonna be just fine, E3 will be as boring as it usually is, and no one will have to be declared winner of the conference since one less player will be there to "compete". If you've forgotten it's about the games then it's time to rethink things. Seriously.

    C'est la vie.

    Things move on and change.
