Update: The speculation continues, unobstructed, without official confirmation from Sony. Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb, who’s been beating the May PS Showcase drum for a fair few months, has nailed down a “week of May 25th” window for the anticipated event. He added: “That timing on PS Showcase is right as of now.”
He continued: “I said ‘week of May 25th’ because that's probably the latest that week it could happen. But it could happen earlier. I just don't want to say week of May 21st and then people get mad when it doesn't happen on a Sunday.”
Clearly Grubb has some kind of sources corroborating this window, but as we mentioned previously, it’s unlikely Sony will pin down a date until much closer to the time.
Original Article: Sprinkle a little more fuel on the flaming PS Showcase log fire. Following on from this weekend’s social media speculation – in which it was suggested Sony may have signed up timed exclusivity for a trio of Konami classics – VGC’s editor Andy Robinson has attached his name to the rapidly multiplying rumours, claiming he’s heard a livestream is happening “in the usual late May / early June window, with Konami stuff included”.
This has been the line we’ve been hearing for a long time now, although the Japanese giant is yet to confirm anything. Remember, while it did host a series of State of Plays in 2022, it skipped its annual tentpole “E3-style” press conference entirely, and as a result there are vanishingly few first-party projects currently announced. We know Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is expected in September, but even the nature of that’s remained a secret since its first trailer a few years ago.
