Why is Sony Sony Sony E3 going for the first time in 24 years?

News broke yesterday It was something of a shock to the public, something less shocking to insiders, the fact that Sony would jump over the E3 for the first time in the show's 24-year history.

I spent too long writing and deleting tweet drafts trying to make some kind of "Sony has seniorit" joke that was not as fun as I thought it would be, but the trend is clear only after Sony discontinued PSX and now draws out out of the E3, while Microsoft and Nintendo were quickly eager to say they would still attend.

But what's happening here is probably not the fact that Sony just kicks up and feels calm in the next year or two, this console won (handily), the latest releases are simply GOTY challengers, if not winnersGod of war There are countless countless lists in spite of all Red DeadLate arrival). Rather, the answer is that all this has to do with PlayStation 5.

The idea here is that Sony does not want to show much of what it's working with, because now most of its future projects are being developed for PlayStation 5, and Sony is not ready to announce it yet. By skipping the E3 2019, it only ensures that PlayStation 5 will be released in the highly anticipated 2020 window of the birthday. We'll see a big PSX reveal, since more elaboration on the E3 2020, since the release in November 2020 or anything.

But even if this is the case, it's still okay, quite unusual. However, it's literally the first time Sony has done it in 24 years, and it's not like they've been particularly bad performers on the E3 late, but they are used to communicating games far, far, long before they actually come out.

One of these games is The last of us Part II, which has now appeared at two E3 runs, but an issue date is still nowhere in sight. It seems likely at this time that The last of us 2 is likely to end as a cross-generation release, with some kind of "super" PS5 version after the PS4 version, as we already know. But if this is Sony's biggest upcoming title, I suppose it's sensible they do not want to base an entire E3 show around what, another 20 minute gameplay demo?

It's not that Sony does not work with things. They have at least three major IP achievements over the past year that all spawning several sequelers, no doubt, Horizon Zero Dawn, god of war and Spiderman, although apparently in the early stages and showing only title cards, it probably would not be enough to match the fans (if Blizzard could have done that with Diablo 4, Maybe it is all fans must see).

What all this means is that things are getting a little strange on PlayStation over the next two years, which will be the end of its lifetime. I would predict that Sony will be a slate The last of us 2 for either a vacation 2019 or a spring 2020 release, and it will be the highest profile on the platform during that time period. Certainly there will be other exclusive here and there, but nothing at that level, and nothing like what we've seen in recent years in the rock's fast Horizon, GoW, Bloodborne, Nioh, Persona, Kidney, Spider-Man epoch.

Finally, the last download from this is that Sony can take a shot on the E3 directly. It is the year's biggest video game event, but it creates a lot of pressure on companies to perform and change their tails to show something on the show they can try to "win" the week in the public eye and press. Sony may say "no thanks" to that concept, even after years of victory, and it's meaningful to design custom shows like PSX where everything is on your terms and your terms alone are the better option.

However, Sony seems likely to be back, they would be crazy not before the PS5 launch in 2020. However, Microsoft and Nintendo will provide a window for a week full of news about them and them alone, with Sony nowhere to be found. I expect Microsoft to really shoot for the moon this year as a result without the risk of being overshadowed by Sony, and I guess we will see much more of Halo 6, Gears of War 5 and for the first time, possibly Fable 4.

Weird news, but it's not a totally indecent feature for Sony with the industry as it is right now. We see how E3's relevance maintains itself in the future, I suppose.
