Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has extolled the importance of Leipzig in the videogame conference season, confirming the waning influence of E3.
“It’s always important to have something exciting for each key event that we have," the boss stated. "And this Games Convention is really gaining lots of lots of importance, not just for the European market but for the whole business."
"E3 was ‘the show’ in the past, and lots of publishers, including ourselves, focused almost solely on E3 and all the news got disseminated from Los Angeles," he continued.
"But now, all through the year we have… E3, Games Convention, Tokyo Games Show, so we make sure we have something great for each of the events, and also some messages for local [markets] as well.”
With the amount of high-profile news coming out of the Sony camp in Leipzig over the past few days we can only presume that to be correct. So where does E3 go from here?
