********************************On Monday, Sony Interactive Entertainment confirmed that it will, for the second year in a row, not attend the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

The news came in a statement sent to Ars Technica by a SIE representative:

After thorough evaluation, SIE has decided not to participate in E3 01575879. We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year. We will build upon our global events strategy in 1578959137 by participating in hundreds of consumer events across the globe. Our focus is on making sure fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content. We have a fantastic line up of titles coming to PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation 5, we are truly looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.

While last year PlayStation E3 absence could have been been written off as a fluke, particularly in a quieter year before a major PlayStation 5 PR push, skipping during a new-console hype cycle could be seen as a major blow for the expo.

leak of journalists ‘and publishers’ personal information. This news comes as more publishers favor“direct” online broadcasts to fansor evenfestivals “that allow downloads of pre-release software(essentially mimicking an E3-like game-preview experience).This news follows a CES appearance last week in which Sony reiterated previously announced information about the upcoming PS5 console, includingits ” holidaylaunch window and a vague description of its technical prowess. The only brand-new information at CES 01575879 was the official PlayStation 5 logo.                                                     **************************************
