Despite having held press conferences at Gamescom in Cologne for several years, Sony have strayed away from the German game show in recent times with much less of a presence away from the show floor and the general public.
A big part of it is down to the proximity to E3, and with the two shows having been closer together than ever in 2015, Sony decided to have a press conference at Paris Games Week instead. They’re returning to France this year, announcing a media showcase that will take place on 30th October at 5PM local time (that’ll be 4PM in the UK).
After the oddly disappointing and rushed E3 showcase, perhaps Sony can take a little more time to let their future games really flourish, spending time with the likes of Dreams and Detroit, as well as having a few genuine surprises up their sleeves. They may, however, have one eye on their homegrown PlayStation Experience event, which has been held for the last three years in early December.
