Sony Interactive Entertainment has been hosting its console centered event known as PlayStation Experience every year but there are change of plans when it comes to 2018.
Shawn Layden, chairman of worldwide studios for Sony appeared on Blogcast few hours ago where he announced that they won’t be hosting PlayStation Experience event this year as apparently, there is not much to show during the event. The PSEX usually takes place in December and brings a lot of new stuff regarding the upcoming titles.
One of the most anticipated PS4 exclusive Spider-Man was released earlier this month and they are currently looking for games releasing next year such as Days Gone. Here’s what Layden said;
“The reasons behind that really are, we don’t have — we have a lot of progress that we’re making in our games, and we’re seeing that coming out, [but] now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone” he added.“We don’t want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on it.”
At the end, he stated that it was indeed not an easy decision to skip the event, but they are affirm that the PSEX will not take place this December.
Recently, Spider-Man was released and it turned out to be the best selling PS4 exclusive till date, with 3.3 million copies being sold out in three days. Maybe it was a wise decision to skip the event rather than holding an empty event with just a one or two game. What’s your take on this? Stay tuned for more updates!
