While one of the biggest gaming events is still some time away, Xbox boss Phil Spencer is already hyping up the show by revealing that his company will be attending. This announcement was made on Twitter right after Sony confirmed that it will be missing E3 for the second time in a row in two decades of scrupulous attendance.
Phill Spencer promised that Xbox is working hard on their E3 show and it should be a real treat for all gamers across the world. Having in mind the fact that this will be a great opportunity to steal the show for their new Xbox Series X and prove that their new console is a better choice than PlayStation 5, we could have a show packed with awesome games.
However, it’s worth mentioning that, a bit earlier, Phill Spencer confirmed that Xbox Series X won’t have next-gen exclusive games, so it should have something else up its sleeve. Maybe a couple of generation-defining games? Epic new features? Frankly, we just don’t know, but we should get a sense of its main competitive advantages during the event.
We should also mention that we know way more about Xbox Series X than we know about PlayStation 5. And Sony will be skipping the biggest gaming media event in the world. Seriously, what the hell? In a public statement (first published on GameIndustry.biz) company representative said:
“After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020. We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year. We will build upon our global events strategy in 2020 by participating in hundreds of consumer events across the globe. Our focus is on making sure fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content. We have a fantastic line up of titles coming to PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation 5, we are truly looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.”
Could this mean that Sony will be revealing their new console in some other gaming event? Or maybe it will be hosting its own show. Only time will tell…
