We were shocked when Sony announced it has pulled the plug on attending E3 2019. It’s obvious they thought the cost of attending far outweighed the benefits. While it will be sad to see them skipping the show, both Microsoft and Nintendo are looking forward to the next E3. Reggie Fils-Aime (NOA president) commented:
“E3 is an outstanding opportunity for us to share new games and experiences with fans and business partners from across the globe. Every year, we discuss what will be the best way for us to take advantage of the next E3 show in order to bring smiles to people’s faces.”
Phil Spencer of Microsoft added:
“E3 is an incredible platform to showcase the vibrancy and creativity of the video game industry. The ESA continues to expand the event’s reach to fans and the industry, both in attendance and online, and we look forward to what’s ahead at E3 2019.”
So there you have it. The show must go on!
