Remember when people said Nintendo was only abandoning E3 press conferences because they had nothing to show when they started doing the e3 directs instead, and now Sony is following suit in a far more drastic manner and nobody is saying Sony is doomed lol?

Compared to last year this is pretty obviously a "arrogant Sony move" but it's at least somewhat justified. Still, I wouldn't have seen the harm of even just having booth space there. E3 still attracts a lot of people in the general periphery of gaming.
Yeah Sony going "we don't need E3" is arrogant but 100% true.

Not liking the sound of that. Seems like Sony is going for quantity instead of quality when it comes to shows.

So Sony Direct, Nintendo Direct and Xbox Playhouse are the remnants of E3?? Wow, Sony really making a statement. Your not bigger than the industry Sony, you can just release a video ala Direct and show up.

Right move, focus on events that involve fans instead of an overblown media circus that's lost its relevance in today's gaming world.

People keep saying it’s like Nintendo, but Nintendo still goes to E3

They just don’t have a conference

I'm surprised so many people seem to dislike E3. It was always one of my favorite times of the year.

I honestly wonder if they even have a PS meeting at this point. Maybe a few 30 minute PS directs is all they need?

Would've liked some more details with that statement.. but whatever. Can't be long until the PS meeting now.

Sounds like they want to do multiple Playstation Experiences instead, to have audience reactions from something else than journalists. Not just simili-Directs.

.......they had huge advantage to announce the PS5 at E3 since MS announced their console at TGA.... Why are they skipping E3 2 years in a row? Sucks... this really sucks.
