E3 2012: Geoff Keighley Responds: On why Sony Press Conference will not air on Spike
I just wrote an article about the absence of Sony’s Press Conference on Spike, (you can read it here) pertaining to the fact of while surfing cable it seems Sony will be a no show for GT.TV and Spike.
Well I said I was going to do some digging and some digging I did. I reached out to Sony as well as Geoff Keighley. Sony has not responded (as of yet) but Geoff Keighley was kind of enough to. His response simply put, “We couldn’t work out a deal”.
Here is an exact recount:
@geoffkeighley is there any reason u guys are not airing Sony’s press conference on Spike? @ControllUs We couldn’t work out a deal, simple as that.
It’s unfortunate the two sides couldn’t reach an agreement, hopefully next year they can pull it together. I hope this doesn’t become a trend. But what may strengthen that it will indeed become a trend came straight from a commenter, shout out to “refocusedman”.
Here’s what he said:
“Spike is owned by viacom. Viacom is partners with microsoft….. Its probably a strategic move on MS behalf.”
If that’s the case we may not see a Sony Press Conference for E3 on Spike for a while. For all who want to view Sony’s Press Conference for E3 I hope your by a computer, or have internet access, or hope you get G4 from your cable provider (sorry Directv owners).
So what do you think? Will it be a trend? Will a deal be worked out next year? CCU wants to hear from you.
