Sony still aren’t sure if they will host a press conference at this years Gamescom, or whether they will wait for Paris Games Week as they did last year, according to Playstation Europe boss Jim Ryan.
When asked by VG247 whether they would be holding a European press conference this year, Ryan replied:
“We had a long history of enjoying Gamescom, we went to Paris last year and really enjoyed that with such an iconic venue. So plans are still afoot…”
Sony skipped Gamescom in favour of hosting a show at Paris Games Week last year, a decision that was in part informed by the timing of last year’s E3, given what they said about the topic last year:
“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.”
Gamescom 2016 will start on August 18, while Paris Games Week 2016 will take place on October 27.
