State of Play PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Nintendo’s not getting all the fun! Sony has announced a surprise State of Play livestream for today, 13th September. The broadcast will begin at 3PM PT / 11PM BST, and promises approximately 20 minutes of reveals, including “fresh gameplay footage from 10 games coming to PS5, PS4, and PSVR2”.

A PS Blog post explains: “With Tokyo Game Show just around the corner, it’s almost time to celebrate the amazing creative contributions of the Japanese game development community. And it’s also a perfect time to kick off another State of Play. For tomorrow’s show, we’ll have some great updates from our amazing Japanese partners, along with a few other surprises from developers all around the world.”

Many had been anticipating a PS Showcase in September, as it’s been over a year now since the last full-scale presentation from PlayStation. Of course, this announcement doesn’t necessarily rule that out – there’s no mention of any potential first-party announcements in this State of Play, for example. Still, while we wait for more information on that front, it’ll be interesting to see what tomorrow’s livestream brings.

Amusingly, unlike Nintendo UK, the official PlayStation UK account has confirmed that it’ll be broadcasting the State of Play live – it won’t be observing “this period of national mourning”, apparently. What are you hoping to see? As always, let us know in the comments section below.
