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.

I have that feeling too. Seems like they've been a little light the last couple years, and I think we'll finally see what this gen can do this year.

Do they have so few games to show at this point, even though they have so few new games announced as it is?? That doesn't sound good…

Hopefully just holding their cards close to their chest to have an impactful E3. Or stuffs just not ready yet. Hopefully it's not because they just don't have that much to show.

Edit: Why is E3 a week later this year?
