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".

When is the PlayStation State of Play event?

If we had to guess, we'd say it's likely that we'll hear more about Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us Part II and Death Stranding, all of which are hotly-anticipated titles but none of which now have known release dates.

Several of the children said if they forgot lines, or tried not to participate, they would be physically abused as punishment. After speaking with the children, officers obtained a search warrant and found two cans of pepper spray in Machelle's room.


In brief: Instead of hassling with he chaos of events like E3 and GDC, Sony has announced it will be initiating a Nintendo Direct-like way of announcing new games and updates. Sony did not detail what exactly to expect in the first episode, but it promises it will showcase "upcoming PS4 and PS VR software, including new trailers, new game announcements and new gameplay footage". Much like Nintendo's Direct videos or Microsoft's Inside Xbox, State of Play looks to be a new avenue for Sony to speak directly to consumers about what it has in the pipeline. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can't wait to share our plans with you.

Alternatively, you will also be able to watch it on PlayStation's several social media platforms and channels: Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.

The first Sony's State of Play will air at 2pm PT/5pm ET on March 25, 2019.
