Sony skipping E3 2019

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen!

Will Nintendo expand their booth? Will E3 die? Will a third party ask Nintendo for showing at their E3 direct since Sony won't have a stage? Is arrogant Sony back?

I think it's pretty clear at this point that everything Sony's working on is bound for the inevitable PS5, but for some reason they don't want to show it yet. They've also been increasingly reluctant to do E3 shows for the last few years as they've slowly run out of "big" games to show. Remember last year when the story going around for a long time was that Sony wasn't going to do an E3 show, but instead something akin to a Treehouse Live with the 4 games they had to show? Then suddenly they had an E3 show pull together at the last minute, which showed in how all that played out.

I think Sony's been wanting to step away from E3 for a while now and the lack of PS4 games to show (especially from 3rd parties) pretty much forced their hand here.

I know, right? I've even gone back a couple times and checked its old posts to make sure it didn't edit something in.

The E3 show is going tbe way of the dinosaur, so Sony is going to copy Nintendo and have thier own Playstation Directs that speak directly to their fanbase. They will save millions of dollars in the long term by doin this and bypass any potential leaks about their products. Microsoft will eventually do the samething.

Wait... do you buy Warez?  isn't the point of it that you're not buying it?
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

Of course I don't buy them - that would be silly.
I sell them at a small markup to support my unlicensed plastic surgery side-hustle.
