Last year they barely did anything, but they also barely had anything to show.

They could potentially do a press conference at GDC though.
As well as their own reveal event, like they did with PS4.

No idea why people suddenly act like a non-E3 press conference is out of the realm of possibility
I never said it was “out of the realm of possibility”. I merely asked if it had been confirmed and I think we both agree it has not been. Sony saying they will “attend” other events means nothing. They said that last year too.

Also would think you know this being such a big fan but PS4 was revealed at E3 2013-not Sony’s own event.


The only console Sony has revealed on their own to my knowledge is the Pro and that event was pretty bad.

Let’s hope they go for a bigger and better venue this time.

Phil Spencer is a PUSSY DESTROYER, if I'm this total alpha chad I open the thing saying Sony didn't go because they had to stay home with their wife's son and were also afraid they might see some breasts here or there.

E3 2013 was the reveal of the console itself, true.
But the announcement and details were revealed in feb 2013 during their own event.

That's what I'm referring to. One can o ly assume they will do a complete reveal this time, compared to 2013.

But yeah, nothing has been confirmed yet, so it's anyones guess at this point.

I hope we at least get a look at the XSX software that's coming out in 2021 and beyond. It'll be nice to get a look at Halo Infinite, too. Outside of that, I expect a lot of Assassin's Creed and Forza segments and CG trailers from 3rd parties like last year when they had the entire venue to themselves.
With this being a brand new generation, you still expect them to hold back????

..... Okay?

Oh, they've been "holding back" this whole time? :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I expect we'll get a small look at some of the next-gen software that wasn't ready for the launch year, some of their own cross-gen stuff (hopefully Gears Tactics!), and some 3rd party cross-gen stuff. And I hope they keep the CG trailers to a minimum. What exactly are you expecting when they've already said they have no next-gen software ready for the first year?

Well, clearly. Xbox needs E3. They don't have a big enough presence to get enough eyes on an event JUST about Xbox.

But unfortunately for them E3 will continue to become less relevant because, unlike Xbox, Nintendo and Sony don't need E3.

This will be make or break for Xbox.

They need full spec reveal of XSX (just a few minutes mind, not a full length movie) with a good price point, big game reveals including Fable 4 and gameplay footage of Infinite, followed up with some new IP and XSX third party games. And more games. Make it all about the games.

And then more games.

Fuck this up and it’s another poor gen compared to PS5.
E3 is going to be about game. They'll show Series X before E3,and probably use DF to do the breakdown like they did with the X.

The message will be sound and concise. No foul ups this time. People keep doubting Microsoft but this isn't the same Xbox from last gen. The Xbox division is just as big as Sonys gaming division these days, and growing.

Its like people have been living under a rock with all the moves they've made over the last couple of years. Clearly this is a whole new bag. Xbox is poised to - at the very least -be a heavy competitor to Sony, with more than enough to actually take next gen, if they play their cards right.

Like I said before, people see what they wanna see. But Microsoft is fully ready to take it to the mattresses next gen, like they've never been before. E3 will be the start of it. They'll have plenty to show. Plenty!

The best versions of next gen games, regardless of cross gen. One or two acquisitions, One or two IP reboots from the past with next gen flair! Heavy roll out and addition of Xcloud with GP. Enhanced BC on Series X. And a few other things I can't think of at the moment due to lack of caffeine intake.

Regardless, this E3 will be a precise, near perfect look at what's to come. Sony will make headlines when they announce. But so will Microsoft. They have excellent momentum right now.

Uh.....while that would be amusing, it wouldn't be very useful to take to the stage with a message like that. 😂

Think of all the other great things you could do and say with a trade industry event completely focused on you and your press conference.

MS literally will be the central factor of E3 this year.

What momentum? Game pass?

MS have to do a metric shit ton of work.

Sony released many, many exclusives and quality reboots and remakes this gen - very very rarely dropping projects all cancelling them.

These all released and are likely to see sequels soon into the PS5’s life cycle.

They also released and supported VR - maybe not the best unit but for the price it was fine - again they did this with many, many exclusives.

MS on the other hand showed games over and over and over again at E3’s then outright cancelled them.

They showed Holo Lens and Minecraft - again it didn’t happen.

Sony will come out with New IP’s, Sequels, Quality Remasters & an upgraded VR again - with exclusives.

They will also have some form of subscription, BC and streaming service as well as deals with third parties.

What has MS actually got?

Third parties, Halo, GOW & Forza and game pass.

It’s the most vanilla offering gaming has ever seen.

Coupled with that - no Series X exclusives at launch or over 1 year?! Man what a great sales pitch...

Lmao theres that fucking nerd Tim Dog again up in Uncle Phils gooch. Christ the guy has been whoring himself out for years now, dude needs to give it a rest.

Anyways good for E3 that at least Xbox is showing up
The irony and hypocrisy in those tweets is incredible. The reason Sony no longer wants to attend E3 is they want it to change from being mainly a press event, with the vast majority of attendees being reporters and insiders, to being a fan celebration, like Gamescom and Comic-Con, with 100s of thousands of fans attending. I guess MS prefers the more controlled environment where they just have to worry about sweet talking reporters.

Sony will steal the spotlight with a God of War 5 trailer or another game. You can mark it down

But that's ridiculous.

If they were actually attending they wouldn't have to hold back a big trailer from their own event just to try and steal the spotlight from another event.

I was joking, but aggressive marketing worked for Sega. The 3 console holders are too nice nowadays, I want to see some WWE shit talking action.

Haven't really paid attention to E3 since the current generation consoles were released. Since there aren't really any major announcements that don't get leaked beforehand anymore, I guess I just lost interest. Will be interesting to see how this goes.

Sony usually prepares for these kinds of things so they'll have something ready to show if not another event of their own
