PlayStation fans who were anxiously awaiting Sony's press conference at Gamescom 2015 will be disappointed.
For the first time since the event's inception in 2009, Sony will not host a conference at Gamescom 2015 (via GameSpot ).
Rather than coming to Gamescom, the company is planning to make a big splash at an international media briefing at Paris Games week in October. This means they'll hold off on delivering the big announcements until a little later in the year. Why, we're not really sure but we imagine Sony has its reasons. Said a company representative:
"We're delighted to announce that we will be hosting an international media briefing at Paris Games Week on 27th October.
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."
Well, that makes a little sense. Anyway, guess we'll just have to wait until October.
