Sony Confirms No PlayStation Experience Event for 2018


Sony will not hold a PlayStation Experience, otherwise known as PSX, event in the United States in 2018.

"For 2018, I know this is going to be a disappointment to some people, but we decided to not hold PlayStation Experience this year," PlayStation's Worldwide Studios Chairman Shawn Layden said on PlayStation Blogcast. "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 on our games...Now that we have Spider-Man out the door, we're looking down into 2019 games like Dreams and Days Gone."

"But we wouldn't have enough to bring people all together in some location North America to have that event," he continued. "We don't want to set expectations really high and then not deliver on that. It was a hard decision, but we have determined that this year we will not hold PlayStation Experience."

The first PSX was held in England in 2002 and in the United States in 2014. A PSX event for 2018 was held last month in Thailand.

The announcement follows the release of Insomniac Games' Marvel's Spider-Man earlier this month, which went on to sell over 3.3 million units in the first three days.
