Sony will not go to E3 this year and will leave the main role of the fair with Microsoft Xbox X Series. Although not for the first time, Japan has once again surprised its decision not to attend, for the second year in a row, the world's largest video game fair, E3 2020.
The surprise of Sony not being at E3 2020 is not so much its absence at the fair, which, as we said, happened the year before, but not taking advantage of the media's biggest focus to show the PlayStation 5 at the fair held. In Los Angeles. That way, Sony will put the spotlight on Microsoft with the Xbox Series X at E3 this year, as confirmed by the Japanese company at IGN.
After a thorough evaluation, SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020. We have great respect for ESA as an organization, but we do not believe that the vision of E3 2020 is the right place for what we are focused on this year. We will develop our global event strategy by 2020 by attending hundreds of consumer events around the world. Our goal is to ensure that fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content. We have a fantastic lineup of titles for PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming release of PlayStation 5, we're really looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.
As with the reasons given last year, where Sony stated that “As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for ingenious opportunities to engage the community,” this time it seems that the Japanese company remains firm in its intention to take it all. in a more unilateral direction on your part.
Thus, Microsoft will once again hone the spotlight during E3 2020, the perfect time for Redmond to showcase the full potential of the Xbox Series X and the titles that will accompany the console during its launch this Christmas season 2020.
