Sony won't host Gamescom 2015 press conference

Sony has revealed they won't be hosting a press conference at Gamescom 2015 as they normally would. Instead, they'll be making any announcements during Paris Games Week.


Sony will not be holding a press conference at Gamescom 2015, and instead, will be making any formal announcements at Paris Games Week. The Paris Games Week takes place between October 28th to November 1st, which is over two months after Gamescom 2015.

“We’re delighted to announce that we will be hosting an international media briefing at Paris Games Week on October 27,” Sony shares in a statement sent out today. “With the changes this year of E3 taking place a week later and gamescom taking place earlier, we feel that both PlayStation and the wider industry would benefit from a major news milestone later in the year, during the most important period for gaming.”

Sony makes a valid point to forego making any announcements at Gamescom considering the Cologne, Germany show takes place just a few weeks after E3. The company will probably make all of its big announcements at E3, and instead of having maybe one or two more things to discuss at Gamescom, would rather wait until later in the fall to reveal anyting noteworthy.
