I used to be there but now its like you xbox people need games its fucked up they dont make any
Big trade shows are expensive for participants and have been slowly fading over time. And much as I have loved E3, it too has outlived its usefulness — because it has been destroyed by companies trying to one-up each other by pre-announcing in the guise of “leaks”. I am not surprised the big names are opting out and focusing on their own events instead. Apple did it first years ago, including not even showing up to their own MacWorld Expo’s to focus on WWDC and their own Fall telecasts.
Sony not having anything to show sounds like hyperbole for it is either (a) Sony is pulling punches ahead of a PS5 (unlikely, but not impossible) or (b) has been working on titles we have not heard much about, likely to avoid their penchant for No Mans Sky overhype (I don’t think they’ve exactly learned that lesson any better than any of the other big publishers, but who know?) or (c) they are failing to do what a game company is supposed to do: develop new games (I don’t think their shareholders would sit for that, do you?). I do think Sony can be stupid (as they all can), but I don’t think they’re suicidal.
But we shall see.
