Sony was not at E3 this year and may never be back. However, despite not being present at E3 2019 in any form or format, it still managed to be the third most commented publisher in the series, behind only the Xbox and Nintendo, both of which were on show at their usual ability. That's true, according to at least Twitter data, Nintendo was the most talked about publisher, the Xbox came in second place and the PlayStation came in third.
According to Twitter, the five regions that most speak about E3 were the United States, Japan, England, France and Spain. Meanwhile, the most talked about moment on Twitter was the Nintendo press conference, which was highlighted by Mansion Luigi 3 gameplay, the revelation of ANimal crossing: new horizons, Banjo-Kazooie announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the announcement of a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel and more.
Behind Nintendo was not Marvel Avengersor Final Fantasy VII Remake, or even the entire Xbox conference, but Keanu Reeves, who was revealed as a Cyberpunk 2077 character, and that led to the stage of the Xbox E3 to reveal the game's release date. Behind Keanu Reeves was Marvel Avengers and Final Fantasy VII Remake.
As for how PlayStation has earned a place as the third most commented publisher, it is probably because most of the games shown in the program are coming to the PS4 or PS5. You may not have had a conference, but almost every major game in the series is coming to PlayStation 4.
What remains to be seen is whether or not Sony will return to E3 next year for the E3 2020. If anything, this year showed that the series needs Sony more than Sony needs. However, given that next year is when the PS5 will likely be released, I'm sure Sony will want to go back to the biggest video game show to talk about their system and reveal the games that come to it.
Anyway, as always, feel free to leave a comment telling us what you think. What was your show game and which publisher do you think won E3 this year?
Thank you, Hollywood Reporter.
