All E3 2019 Conference Times Schedule | Nintendo
Nintendo once again is not getting on stage to deliver a big flashy press conference.

Nintendo is planning Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros Ultimate world championships, an E3 Nintendo Direct, Treehouse Live, and a presence on the E3 floor for those attending. For the full details, please refer to our own post about Nintendo’s E3 2019 plans.

Sony E3 2019 Conference | Is there a PlayStation E3 2019 conference?
Sadly, Sony won’t be heading to E3 this year. This marks the first time that the company hasn’t appeared at the annual video game event. Recently, Sony has been taking to following the Nintendo Direct approach of streaming short videos crammed with new trailers, announcements, and more in PlayStation State of Play videos.
In an interview with CNET, Shawn Layden, head of Sony’s game-making division, explained that E3 isn’t currently relevant to Sony as “the world has changed, but E3 hasn’t necessarily changed with it.” Essentially, with a change to how Sony is prioritizing fewer, but bigger game releases throughout a year, E3 just isn’t at a great time for them to announce or show anything new.
Sony appears to be swapping to announcing things and showing new content at its own leisure, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Plus, with the PS5 seemingly getting closer and closer to release, perhaps Sony is waiting to show something really big by the end of this year, not at E3. However, a third State of Play can not be discounted, so keep an eye out for that if it gets announced.
