Like this means anything lol. If E3 2015 wasnt a company going all out then its nigh impossible for a company to go all out.
There’s no doubt Sony brought their megatons to E3. But in terms of pure quantity, they never overextended themselves, compared to past E3s or other conferences.
To put it in context, even from just their first-party line-up, Sony could’ve (realistically) brought the following games to E3 as well :
Everybody’s Golf (teased last year)
Gravity Daze 2 (teased 2 years ago, playable according to Shu)
David Cage’s new game (2 years since Beyond, playable according to Shu)
Bend’s game (playable according to Shu)
But they didn’t. They showed 4 first-party games (TLG, Horizon, dreams & RIGS), and while 3 of them are undeniably huge games, it’s not the extent that Sony could’ve shown.
Even from a 3rd-party perspective, this is true as well.
There was Shenmue 3. There was FFVII. Both are megatons for different reasons, but it’s only 2 games.
If we look at what’s happened post-E3, we’ve had few more megatons drop for the PS4 in the form of DQX and DQXI. Sony clearly knew about them, but they didn’t try to force Yuji Horii make it part of their E3 show at all. (Not that they necessarily can, imo. DQ commands the presence of manning their own presser )
If Sony went all-out, they wouldn’t be holding another 2 confirmed pressers this year at TGS/PGW. (and very likely 3 with PSX)
