After holding a press conference at Paris Games Week last year, it seemed Sony would hold one at the event again this year, especially after they didn’t do a briefing at gamescom in August. However, if a post on the French PlayStation Blog is any indication, they won’t be holding a press conference at PGW this year.

Detailing their lineup for Paris Games Week (October 27 to 31) at the Porte de Versailles in Paris, Sony said they’ll have 40 playable PS4 and PSVR games over 300 terminals, a theater at the PlayStation booth (Hall 1) with 60 seats, and the finals of the PlayStation Plus League eSports tournaments, but they didn’t mention anything about a press conference.

Here’s every game playable at the PlayStation booth during Paris Games Week, as well as the games being presented in the theater:

Back in September, Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida was asked by Gameblog about holding another press conference at Paris Games Week this year. After saying it’s a question for Sony Europe’s Jim Ryan and the decision isn’t up to him, Yoshida added, “I really enjoyed my participation in the Paris Games Week last year. This is a fantastic event and a fantastic city. I would love to return to the Paris Games Week if I have the opportunity.”

The lack of a press conference at PGW shouldn’t be too much of a shock, as Sony just held the PlayStation Meeting in September to unveil the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro. Then, after a technical presentation for the PS4 Pro in the near future, Sony will hold a PlayStation Showcase on Saturday, December 3 during PSX 2016.
