"After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020," Sony said. "We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year."
I don't know if this is the right move for them. I understand skipping last year for not having any games to show but continuing down this road seems off somehow. I still believe in the value of one major bombastic event every year and I still appreciate all the hype that I look forward to June every year. E3 still has clout and reach imo. Although, I think if the value proposition of the Xbox Series X is better (i.e it's more powerful for the same/lower price) then I can see why Sony wouldn't want to be presenting alongside them on the same event. This could give them the chance to adjust things on the fly to be in parity with the Series X.
What even is E3 anymore? Any thoughts?
