E3 Is Back, but Sony Still Sitting It Out - IGN Now
E3 is coming back this year in an all-digital form, after sitting out last year due to the pandemic. There are quite a few big-name players attached to participate, including Nintendo with their Switch, Microsoft's Xbox, Capcom, and Ubisoft, but (maybe unsurprisingly) Sony is not among them. Since 2019, Sony has done their own thing during E3, and it looks like this year will be no different. But does a lack of PlayStation and an all-digital format spell the end of in-person E3 as we know it? And do gamers really care if it's a digital E3 2021? What do you think? Sound off in the comments!

    Sony will just give another disappointing 15 minute state of play as a response and say it's enough.

  • Bangcat

    Reminder that SONY is shutting down communities and PS3,PSP, and VITA store fronts. Another concern has come up however. PS3 & PS4 will lose the ability to play games after the CMOS battery dies. With no servers to connect too this can't be corrected. This currently means the above SONY systems have a death clock for your digital games and PS4 currently won't even play your discs it seems. Spread the word and even voice your rage at SONY. If you never take action and do your part in showing companies what won't be tolerated, your choose to give them your consent. Sony has taken steps to undo your library in the near future. Be on the early frontline to do something about it. @everyone

    E3 serves the microsoft business model. Same model they've had since the 90s, all form no substance. Superficial hype meant to generate $. The products, the art, all irrelevant. So yeah, E3 can go, the sooner the multi level marketing mentality of Microsoftian capitalism dies, the better.

    Well, it is either panic stations at Sony, or they are remaining calm because they have an ace up their sleeve, the fact is it is a true Schrodinger's cat conundrum, they'll have to open the box for us to see whether it is dead or alive, or if there was even a cat at all.

    Well you know how it is, if you don't have anything to show that's worth a grand stage showcase, then it's best to not force what little you do have onto one. It saves a whole lot of unnecessary time being spent, saves money and keeps the needle in that cringoid meter laying at 0.
