Sony going Solo this E3?

23 replies 427 views Edited Jun 2, 2012

There is something I am confused about and maybe someone OFFICIAL can explain this to me? Last year at E3 I was able to watch it on Spike TV but this year it only looks like Microsoft, Nintendo and EA are showing on Spike this year. W.T.F is this and sorry but I thought E3 was a multiplatform event and Spike displayed all three conferences?

So without speculations, what are the facts behind this decision to exclude Sony from the Spike E3 programming?

G4 is still showing the Sony confrerence live.G4 is also the only broadcaster doing converage from the floor of E3.

It does seem that Spike TV is quickly closing in to be the complete source for E3 coverage, because last year they only showed the Microsoft event...

It was my understanding that SpikeTV and G4 are both owned by Comcast.

Slowly little by little ive noticed G4 programming leaning closer to what you see on Spike and some of the kind of stuff that was only on G4 appearing on SpikeTV...

I Digress...

Up till the last couple years G4 had exclusive broadcast rights to the big 3. Couple years ago Spike got broadcast rights to M$ and Nintendo, last year Spike had Exclusive rights to the M$ presser.

Since ive been stuck in the process of moving and dont have access to my satellite/cable internet iv not been able to get this years Broadcast schedule.

Its looking like this year i can only access it online. Now im off to post more randomness and try and find a streamer for all the pressers im intrested in.

I think Sony should have their own TV station. Since Sony does have a Movie studio, it only makes sense that Sony has their own station to broadcast Sony movies or Sony news and E3. Well actually they do, they call it Sony Entertainment Television!
