Sony Bows Out Of Gamescom 2015
PlayStation fans who were anxiously awaiting Sony's press conference at Gamescom 2015 will be disappointed.
For the first time since the event's inception in 2009, Sony will not host a conference at Gamescom 2015 (via GameSpot).
Rather than coming to Gamescom, the company is planning to make a big splash at an international media briefing at Paris Games week in October. This means they'll hold off on delivering the big announcements until a little later in the year. Why, we're not really sure but we imagine Sony has its reasons. Said a company representative:
"We're delighted to announce that we will be hosting an international media briefing at Paris Games Week on 27th October.
With the changes this year of E3 taking place a week later and Gamescom taking place earlier, we feel that both PlayStation and the wider industry would benefit from a major news milestone later in the year, during the most important period for gaming."
Well, that makes a little sense. Anyway, guess we'll just have to wait until October.
