Sony announce their own party

ECTS is looking pretty hollow now...

According to Computer Trade Weekly, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe intends to put on its own ECTS replacement show in a similar vein to the previously announced Nintendo show. The idea being to give journalists the best possible atmosphere to soak up its new products. [We'll go where the booze takes us, natch, but please lads, lets not have too many different events at once, eh? -Ed] According to head of PR David Wilson, ""This decision is not a budgetary one. We felt that this approach would be better one; E3 is our major trade showing anyway, and a consumer show offers better value for retail and media as well." With no console to promote, Sega will probably slope off into some corner of ECTS, leaving a huge void where the usual Sony and Nintendo arrangements won't be. Related Feature - E3 Coverage 2000
