It seems Project Nimble was the codename for Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5 Showcase Event internally. The moniker is mentioned as part of the file name for the livestream’s lead image on the PlayStation Blog, so it gives us a rough idea of how the Japanese giant referred to the event in boardrooms around its headquarters.
It’s pertinent because there’s been an ongoing narrative that the manufacturer was simply waiting for Microsoft to play its hand before it responded with its own event. Project Nimble would suggest that it’s been quietly plotting behind-the-scenes, and had a plan in place ready to respond.
It was all part of the plan.
