Phil Spencer believes it was a mistake for Sony not to go to E3.
Sony was not present at E3 2019. The Japanese company stressed that it was not the time to go to the world’s most important video game fair and that they would look for new methods and formulas to bring their games and consoles to new audiences.
According to Phil Spencer, he believes that the absence of his big rival in the world of entertainment harms E3 as a whole.
In fact, he hopes both Sony and Activision, the other big absent, will return.
The Xbox boss has been very sincere and honest in his statements, which produced a series of streamings interviewing leading figures in the industry.
Spencer, who emphasizes the importance of E3 as a format and container for video game news, believes that the brand profile and the fair have been hampered without the presence of companies such as Sony and Activision, which we recall having shown nothing of their new Call of Duty.
“I think E3 is not as good as a fair if Sony is not here”
“I would love for Sony to be here,” he explained. “I think E3 is not as good as a fair if they’re not here,” he said in connection with the decision by PlayStation owners and Call of Duty fans to be excluded from the event.
Spencer thinks it’s a mistake for such companies to be absent because they are still important and relevant to the public, developers, and fans. “It’s a time of year when everyone is watching the video game industry, which is very important when they are putting us through public scrutiny throughout the year,” he says.
