Sony have announced that they will not be attending the European Computer Trade Show this September, in London.

ECTS started in 1989, and provided a European-based exhibition where publishers could show off their new titles. Recent years have seen a number of the bigger name companies pull out, in favour of running their own shows instead.

The exact reason for Sony pulling out of ECTS is not known, and they were seen as the big name at recent shows, so the whole thing casts doubt over just what will happen to this years show.
