PlayStation Experience to skip 2018, "We wouldn't have enough"

Running dry on exclusives?

PlayStation Experience to skip 2018

"We wouldn't have enough," says SIE Worldwide Studios chairman.

A PlayStation Experience will not be held in 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden said on the latest PlayStation Blogcast.

Here is the snippet:

“For 2018, I know this is going to be a disappointment to some people, but we have decided not to hold PlayStation Experience. We won’t have it in the States this year. The reasons behind that really are, we don’t have—we have a lot of progress that we’re making in our games, and we’re seeing that coming out—now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we’re looking down into 2019 into games like Dreams and Days Gone, but we wouldn’t have enough to bring people all together in some location in North America to have that event. We don’t want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on it, so we have—it was a hard decision—but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience.”

PlayStation Experience is generally a two-day event held in December where Sony and its publishing partners exhibit the latest upcoming PlayStation titles. A press conference-style opening keynote usually contains the latest game announcements and trailers.

They’ve been killing it continuously for a while now. I don’t mind if things quite down. There’s lots announced in the pipeline.

If they start making plans for PS5, I’d be fine with that.

They're not running dry; the generation is ending. The next exclusive they show will be for PS5.

Saying that, I am glad they aren't doing one this year. Last year's was terrible and nothing really on the show floor to see.

Yeah... they are clearly on ps5 mode.

With that said, i'm not happy with going back to 5 years cycles, at all.

5 to 6 years I'm not fussed, backwards compatibility could make it a non-issue.

Are they that far ahead to start thinking of PS5 projects to move new games into it? Do they even do what kind of hardware they will have yet?
Honestly i'm not ready for new hardware yet but we probably have a good two years before it gets released.
