What We’d Like to See From PlayStation State of Play


Interesting news coming out of Sony HQ: the first episode in a brand-new series of videos, known as State of Play, will be broadcasting on Monday 25th March at 9PM GMT. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 in 2019. Typically, similar Nintendo Directs and episodes of "Inside Xbox" have featured runtimes varying from 15 minutes to over an hour, so we'll have to wait for the first installment of "State of Play" to set the tone.

We'd be lying if we said the prospect of PlayStation pulling out of E3 altogether (save when it decides to officially unveil the PS5 - you can bet your bottom dollar it'll be at the show in one form or another then) wasn't somewhat bittersweet.

State of Play will be returning "throughout the year" with additional updates and announcements, likely at various intervals rather than regularly scheduled dates.

As you may already know, Nintendo has been doing events like this (called Nintendo Directs) for years to great success and it looks like Sony's finally catching on.

There are still the main four that PlayStation has in the works: The Last of Us Part II, Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding, plus other slightly smaller projects. It might be too soon for that, too.

People will be able to catch the first State of Play on Sony's Facebook page, Twitch account, Twitter account, and YouTube. But we're really hoping for some games to be revealed.
