Hideo Kojima stole the latest State of Play, despite strong competition from a well-rounded selection of reveals. The epic almost 10-minute trailer for Death Stranding 2: On the Beach has attracted the most views thus far on PlayStation’s official YouTube channel, racking up over 450k views at the time of writing. The ex-Konami auteur also attracted a further 115k views for his announcement of a new espionage action game and movie with Sony, alongside PS Studios boss Hermen Hulst.

These are all the trailer views from the event, accurate at the time of publication. Please note, we’re only taking into account the official PlayStation YouTube channel’s numbers here, so the data may differ when you introduce mirrors from various other channels.

As for the State of Play livestream, the English language version has attracted almost two million views thus far. While no trailer has drawn humongous numbers like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or Hogwarts Legacy in the past, Sony will be happy with the rather consistent spread here – more than half of the trailers are over 100k, for example, suggesting fans were interested in virtually all of the titles on display.
