Should PlayStation create its own Nintendo Direct-style show?
With Sony deciding to skip E3 in 2019, and Shawn Layden discussing the company’s reasons for not going to E3, how can PlayStation still best promote its upcoming lineup in 2019?
IGN’s weekly PlayStation show, Beyond!, discussed this very topic, examining what Sony could learn from the things Microsoft and Nintendo have done well and poorly with the Inside Xbox and Nintendo Direct video series, respectively. Watch the video above as Jonathon Dornbush, Brian Altano, and Max Scoville discuss whether PlayStation should adapt its own video series with the lack of an E3 presence, and an uncertainty of whether PSX will return.
And if you enjoyed that discussion, watch this week’s full episode of Beyond!, in which the crew discusses how Sony can overall control the gaming conversation in 2019 without E3.
