  1. They passed last time too both of them have Fall shows but it honestly seems too far away/

  2. Gamescom really isn’t a big show it hasn’t been in years like since last gen. Sony should move up the showcase though and show their plans for next year so far it looks bad.

  3. Playstation will skip 2024 just like it skipped 2022. No Playstation Showcase 2024, No Gamescom 2024. Playstation don’t have enough games to create a show every year. Both Wolverine and Marathon are on early stages of development and will couple of years to complete. Naughty Dog usually work on every game 7 years so next Last of Us will be 2027.

  4. These shows are more for the industry than actual consumers, so Sony not being there is moot for me. The PS App amd website notifications are good enough for me.
