Another exciting year for PlayStation
PlayStation should see another exciting year in 2019, especially since Sony has already confirmed that they are working on a next-generation console and they will not be attending E3 this year.
Microsoft and Nintendo have chosen to remain loyal to the E3 video expo despite Variety’s latest report that Sony’s PlayStation will not be attending the event scheduled for 2019.
PlayStation says that they will skip next year’s E3 for the very first time in its 24-year history.
This is Sony’s official statement:
“PlayStation fans mean the world to us, and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 in 2019.”
The tech giant concluded by saying “We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can’t wait to share our plans with you.”
