If you are a gamer, you are most likely familiar with the huge gaming conference E3. It’s one of the hottest events of the year and it’s where companies showcase all of their great games, peripherals, and announcements coming through the pipeline.

Well, this time, Sony has announced that it will not be participating in E3 2019. While that is news in and of itself, Microsoft and Nintendo want to make sure its fans know that the two are excited about the upcoming event.

What Microsoft has to say

Shortly after the Sony announcement, Microsoft threw a light bit of shade on Facebook, stating “We can’t wait to see you all at E3 2019.”

Head of Xbox operations, Phil Spencer, expanded on that sentiment, taking to Twitter to say that E3 is a high point of the year and is a place to “witness the industry’s creativity and the energy of the community.”

Nintendo chimes in, as well

Nintendo is also excited about the event, with good ole’ Reggie Fils-Aime stating in a press release that “E3 is an outstanding opportunity for us to share new games and experiences with fans and business partners from across the globe.”

Granted, it’s been a while since Nintendo was truly at E3, but it looks like this year the company plans on having a larger presence.

It is still up in the air as far as Sony and its plans go, but as a spokesperson tells GameInformer, “As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for inventive opportunities to engage the community.”

Whatever that means.
