Sony Dropping Out of Gamescom Press Conference

Sony will be skipping out on doing its annual press conference at Gamescom 2015, taking place this year in early August, and will instead be holding a media briefing at Paris Games week on October 27, according to a statement Sony has made to GameSpot.

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.

We are excited about out plans and look forward to sharing some exciting announcements. We will share more information closer to the time.

Considering that its major exclusive releases like Uncharted 4, Gran Turismo 7, and Project Morpheus won't be available until 2016, Sony's delay in its presentation makes sense. No word yet on whether Sony will exhibit at Gamescom, as Microsoft and Nintendo are assumed to do this year.
