No E3? No problem! We've been wondering for a while what Sony will do this year since it's not at the Los Angeles expo, and here's your answer. As many predicted, the Japanese giant will be hosting a series of live broadcasts, the first of which is only a few days away, on the 25th March. It begins at 14:00 Pacific, so that's 21:00 UK time.

According to the company, these 'State of Play' (nice name) showcases will highlight PlayStation 4 announcements and updates. On paper it sounds similar to what Xbox has been doing with its Inside Xbox episodes, but we're sure that the hype is about to go overboard and people will quickly pump their expectations to extreme levels.

For reference, the official press release reads: "State of Play will give you updates and announcements from the world of PlayStation. Our first episode will showcase upcoming PS4 and PS VR software, including new trailers, new game announcements and new gameplay footage."

Does this sound like a good angle for Sony to take? Please don't go expecting PS5 news in the comments section below.
