E3 2020 canceled – now it’s official

Just as the rumors last night foretold, E3 2020 has been officially canceled. It won't surprise anyone to learn that the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak was the deciding factor in pulling the plug on E3 2020, but in this case, the show's organizers seem to be playing things exceptionally safe; while other major trade shows have been canceled with two or three weeks of lead time, E3 2020 wasn't scheduled to happen until June.

Events and conferences are dropping like flies and it's probably for the best. The outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus has thrown many organizations and their planned events into chaos, some canceling just days before schedule.

PlayStation is skipping E3 2020, throws subtle shade at the event

With the upcoming launch of the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, the console wars are back again in full swing. Depending on who you ask, one or the other is the console to beat this year. It is arguable, though, that Microsoft's gaming platform may be enjoying the lion's share of the media attention while Sony seems to be biding its time. That perception may have just been reinforced now that Sony has said, somewhat still unofficially, that it will be skipping the E3 show for the second time in a row.

ESA’s pitch for E3 2020 is alarming to say the least

E3 is typically one of the biggest shows of the year, with many companies opting to make their biggest announcements of the year during it. This year, however, we saw instances of publishers and platform holders deeming E3 unimportant. Sony sat the show out entirely, which is not a great look considering that Sony is one of the big three gaming companies.

There's no question that Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the biggest games at E3 2019. From the reveal that Keanu Reeves will be in the game (and the appearance of Reeves himself as a hype man) to the announcement of its release date at long last, Cyberpunk 2077 definitely dominated headlines and discussion throughout the week.

Tesla cars are getting “Fallout Shelter”, Netflix and YouTube

Sitting in your Tesla and not actually moving might seem like an odd way to pass the time, but the addition of Fallout Shelter along with a host of other time-wasting dashboard distractions could end up more fun than even Ludicrous Mode.

Xbox Game Pass on Nintendo Switch? Don’t get your hopes up

Xbox Game Pass is a pretty great service if you've got an Xbox One, and just recently we saw it expand to PC as well. That jump to PC and Microsoft's cross-platform ambitions have left people wondering if the company will try to bring Xbox Game Pass to even more platforms. The Nintendo Switch specifically has been the subject of some recent Game Pass rumors, but Xbox chief Phil Spencer unfortunately poured some cold water on those reports during an interview at E3 2019.
