Sad But True, PlayStation Experience Not Returning This Year

If you were expecting to hear some good news regarding PlayStation Experience this year then you might be disappointed. Apparently, Sony Interactive Entertainment has decided that PlayStation Experience is not making a return this year.

Sony has confirmed the news that PlayStation Experience won’t be taking place this year. Speaking over at the PlayStation Blogcast, Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden said:

I think it became a great place for us to bring new news to the fans, to let them get closer to some of the new games we’re working on, some of the stuff we may have announced at E3 and now we can get it closer to fans in the December of that year.

Then moving on to the real news, he said

But for 2018, I know this is gonna be a disappointment to some people, but we decided not to hold PlayStation Experience this year. We won’t have it in the States this year.

It apparently is a shocker for sure. It seems to be that everything is going pretty great then, why would Sony decide to PlayStation Experience that also serves as a marketing element for the company.

Apparently, that remains to be answered and According to Shawn Layden:

We have a lot of progress that we’re making in our games and we’re seeing that coming out, and now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down in 2019 to games like Dreams and Days Gone. But we wouldn’t have enough to bring people all together in some location in North America to have that event. We don’t want to set expectations really high and not deliver on it.

Spiderman for PS4 is certainly out and for the better. It has been nailing down the market and does not seem to stop at that. Now based on what Layden has to say, what we can gather is that they probably have very less stuff to actually show off.

So they have taken the apparent high road which is rather than holding an empty PlayStation Experience, they have decided to not hold it at all.

Days Gone on the other hand is something we all are looking down on, not just Sony.
