Fuck Yes!! Roll on GAF making this event something way bigger than it is and then complaining how they didn't show enough big games.

I won't be watching.

Yep, just FF16 would be of any great interest to me. I can’t really think of anything else….. Maybe a tease of Haven’s new game? Probably too early.

UK
Megatons
Bioshock 3
Dragons Dogma 2
Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake

I think we will get one of those maybe and then just more of the games that are coming from now until Q2 2022, so stuff like Forespoken, Hogwarts, and maybe we may get Final Fantasy 16.

I really hope this has something worth seeing, but I can't think of a single State of Play that was... good. They really need to work on these presentations.

What are u smoking. State of Plays have had FFVII Remake, Returnal, Horizon and The Last of Us

Outside of FF7Remake (which I saw long before at E3 and not at a State of Play), none of these interested me in their previews on these shows. Returnal only got my attention after it had been released and I saw friends and colleagues really enjoying it and having a chance to try it out myself. If I had only been exposed to it via State of Play, I would have completely missed out on an amazing game, because the trailers provided made it look like a boring, monotonous mess.

Horizon and TLOU are some of the most bland and forgettable games in Sony's lineup for me personally. Couldn't give less of a shit if I tried about either of them.

Third parties - boo! Although it would be cool if we get more info on KOTOR and games on a similar scale. Elden Ring maybe?
Hogwarts Legacy hopefully, even then I feel I'm getting my hopes up a little too much lol

I am not even a fan of Harry Potter, but find myself very interested in this game from it's reveal.

E3 was the reveal, PSX had 8 seconds of gameplay and SoP had an actual trailer with gameplay and finalized UI.

Returnals State of Play was really good, it showed basically everything possible without spoiling biomes and it sold me on the game.

Horizons SoP was also really damn good. Colorful aesthetic, underwater showcase and a neat glider with some cool additional melee gameplay shown


It also has some of the highest engagement for a video game showcase out there. To each their own but I think State of Plays are actually in a great place right now

Aren't all shows ads of some kind?
Sure but with 1st party its just self promotion. Normal business.

While 3rd party State of Plays are like digital commercials Sony runs and rents out to the highest bidders. They exist solely so Sony can sell the spots.


Source and kinda depends on what the last two are.
Source ?

That's my bet on what it'll be lol.
