E3 and PlayStation
It may be noted that PlayStation has been using E3 as a perfect platform to unveils its details of the upcoming consoles. It participated in E3 for the first time in the year 1995. And that year, it revealed the details about the United States launch of PlayStation. The E3 2013 brought a significant turning point for the company. In 2013’s E3, PlayStation introduced PS4 which helped Sony to reclaim is leadership in the global Xbox market.
Well, on the other side, the ESA, organizer of E3, has faced a lot of challenges in satisfying its members. Some of its members, like Sony and EA, want to see the event as a place for the celebration of games. However, some others want to keep it industry-focused business.
With time ESA tried its best to keep the groups satisfied by launching various consumer elements.
