Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan outlined its plans for the Tokyo Game Show 2019, which runs from 12 – 15 September at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. Sony will be showcasing numerous games at the PlayStation booth on the show floor, this is yet another event that won’t feature a Sony press conference.
This is not the first event Sony has decided to not host a press conference, first one this year was E3, which came as a huge shock to the industry as they generally are at every possible convention. They will also not host their annual PlayStation Experience, so TGS is just the latest event in the 2019 calendar year to feel the absence of a usual Sony press conference.
Sony will, however, have a show floor presence at Tokyo Game Show 2019. The PlayStation booth will offer playable demos of upcoming PS4 titles such as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as well as featuring PlayStation VR demos for Marvel’s Iron Man. There will also be mega-theatre showing footage from Kojima Productions’ Death Stranding, and Sony is hosting a special match on Modern Warfare featuring members of professional Esports teams.
The company is hosting a series of stage events over the course of the show, too, with developers showing gameplay demonstrations of upcoming games.
The full stage event schedule and further information on the full lineup of games at the PlayStation booth will be announced soon.
What are your thoughts on the non-press conferences from Sony?
