March 25, 2019 – Playstation’s first showcase in a new format, titled State of Play, was livestreamed on Monday. We collected most of the new annoucements including new titles and confirmed release dates.
Last year November Sony announced it won’t attend E3 2019. Shawn Layden, from Sony Interactive Entertainment, stated in an interview with cnet.com they don’t feel the need to be present at the event. E3 has always been a trade show where retailers could make purchase decisions and journalist could make story’s for there magazine. Now, Sony has Destination PlayStation in February for the retailers to make earlier purchase decisions for the Christmas holiday. With the internet, journalists have always acces to news. So according to Shawn Layden E3 has lost its impact and needs to reinvent themselves.
