So much for playing dead: Sony’s upcoming State of Play will showcase a colourful crop of upcoming PS5 and PSVR 2 games with updates on PlayStation first-party and PlayStation Studios titles coming later this year.

The Excitement Builds: What to Expect

The State of Play is expected to last for in excess of half an hour, beginning at 15:00 PT / 18:00 ET / 23:00 BST on YouTube, Twitch and TikTok. Pundits and gamers alike are primed to feast their eyes and minds on 14 titles to be released on the PS5 and PSVR 2, and making history in the gaming universe.

A Glimpse into PlayStation Studios' Latest Offerings

Considering the lineup, it’s impossible not to wonder what the rest of 2024 could hold from PlayStation Studios. Or if a game reveal could be revealed at all, considering that the first six months was so quiet. There was a rumour online about a new Astro Bot game.

PS5 and PSVR 2: Enhancing the Gaming Experience

Already their new PS5 console is generating headlines, and the integration of PSVR 2 titles will likely make the experience even more absorbing still. So it offers the promise of even greater flexibility in the gaming ecosystem. It was additionally revealing that, alongside announcing its plans for PSVR 2, Sony also announced a PC adapter for the headset and controllers.

The Awaited PS5 Pro: What We Know So Far

Along with the announcements of new games, you may be seeing the first rumblings of the PS5 Pro on the horizon. There has been a lot of talk about the future of the PS5 in the wake of the game’s reveal, and an announcement of an upgrade could be a big hit for PS5 fans. While gamers wait to hear about improvements or upgrades to the system, the possibility of a PS5 Pro could certainly have them tuning into the State of Play to see what they have to offer.

Why the PS5 Remains at the Forefront of Gaming

The PS5 can still captivate gamers with the newest games and a big catalogue of older titles. Using the updated hardware for graphics and processing power as well as the vast storage of the PlayStation network, players can have innovated gaming experience with fast load speeds and impressive visuals. Sony’s support for the console is expected to be continued by releasing new games, innovation or additional hardware for the console and PlayStation network.

The Best PS5 Games to Play Right Now

Even before State of Play broadcasts, gamers have plenty to play on the PS5: an action-packed rained-on spy adventure, a graphic novel about a policeman stuck in a brutal loop, a nearly cinematic farming adventure, a challenging puzzle game, a relaxing building zone, even a nostalgia-drenched horror adventure set in a ’90s kids bedroom, and more. It’s a diverse slate, and a great way to explore the capabilities of the PS5 before a bright future arrives from Sony.

PS5: A New Era of Gaming

The PS5 is a testament to Sony’s ideas on where gaming should go in the future. Its forward-thinking features, robust game library and future-proofing hardware updates might just be the future of gaming. The next State of Play broadcast will be at 6pm PT/9pm ET/12am BST/Noon AEST on 7 September, and it is almost impossible to not look to the future with the PS5 at the centre of gaming.
