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

Sony's First State Of Play Game Announcement Broadcast Will Appear On March 25, 2019

Announced today via a blog post, PlayStation is launching "State of Play", a live broadcast that will bring "updates and announcements from the world of PlayStation".

If you're thinking the format sounds awfully like a Nintendo Direct or Inside Xbox presentation, that's because it is, and it's a development that means all three main players in the console space are now content to drip-feed fairly major announcements and news all year round. The first such "State of Play" showcase will debut on Monday, March 25, and promises a series of game reveals, trailers, news, and more for PS4 and PSVR. It'll be interesting to see how Sony structures this show: is it going to be a quick-fire video similar to a Nintendo Direct or a chattier version like Inside Xbox? With this being the case, it's quite possible that SIE decides to forego traditional trade shows and expos in the future in favor of State of Play live streams. Sony, meanwhile, has also said it won't be hosting its annual PlayStation Experience this year - making Monday a day worth paying attention to for PlayStation fans.

The State of Play looks to be those plans.

Anyway, those who're interested in watching the inaugural episode can do so over on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, or Facebook. Alternatively, you can just come back to this article and watch it right here (above).

Last year Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) made the shock announcement that it wouldn't be attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019 - the first time in the event's history.
