Sony To Gamers: Don't Worry About Us Missing Gamescom

There was one glaring absence during Gamescom 2015: Sony wasn't there.

The publisher has presented at most every Cologne gaming expo, so many were disappointed to hear that PlayStation wouldn't get a dedicated conference this year. However, one Sony executive says you shouldn't read too much into it.

Speaking to GamingBolt, India PlayStation boss Atindriya Bose said gamers have nothing to worry about:

"There is nothing to read into it. We had a very good E3, an excellent one in fact. This is all about how everyone phases out the announcements. So I won’t be reading too much on why we missed out on Gamescom and these are strategies that are developed by the European head and the SCEI so it’s a bit difficult to comment on that."

With Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Last Guardian, Shenmue 3, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and the Final Fantasy VII Remake leading the way, there's no doubt that Sony kicked some serious ass at E3. Besides, they'll be at Paris Games Week and of course, they're hosting the PlayStation Experience in December (where we hope to see new entries in the vaunted Gran Turismo and God of War franchises).

And as Sony continues to lead this generation in terms of hardware sales (by a substantial margin), they're probably not too concerned about showing up at Gamescom. They're in a good position, yes?

Don't forget Tokyo Game Show! We'll most likely hear about a truckload of Japanese titles making their way to PS4 (crossing my fingers Sony announces Dark Cloud 3).
