Forums - Sony Discussion - State of Play Returns August 6th (No First Party Games or PS5 Hardware News Expected)

From Playstation Blog:

https://blog.playstation.com/2020/08/03/state-of-play-returns-this-thursday-august-6/

It’s been a while… but State of Play returns this Thursday with a focus on third-party-published games coming to PS4 and PS VR. We’ll have a few PS5 game updates on third-party and indie titles you last saw in June’s PS5 showcase. 

The episode is weighing in at 40+ minutes(!). We’ve got a great lineup in store featuring plenty of new gameplay footage and other game updates. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

And just to be super clear — there will be no PlayStation Studios updates in Thursday’s episode. There won’t be any updates around hardware, business, preorders, or dates either. On Thursday, our focus is squarely on showcasing some cool upcoming games coming to the broader PlayStation ecosystem. Should be fun!

The new State of Play episode airs Thursday, August 6 at 1:00pm Pacific Time / 4:00pm Eastern Time / 9:00pm BST, and you can watch it live on Twitch and YouTube.

See you Thursday!

Tales of arise was announced at an Xbox show so I probably shouldn’t be expecting anything here...but please let it be here



" featuring plenty of new gameplay footage " Well played.

"And just to be super clear — there will be no PlayStation Studios updates in Thursday’s episode. There won’t be any updates around hardware, business, preorders, or dates either"

That is really smart. Sadly it won't help. People are going to go in expecting things they shouldn't, be be disappointed because they hyped themselves up on rumors and wishes.

Make things clear as possible at the beginning to control expectations and squash rumors.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I think they are still playing a game of chicken with Microsoft on the PS5 price announcement. Hopefully we'll still get the news by the end of the month. Regardless- should be a fun event displaying third party games. There are some rumors going around of some major timed exclusives deals.



PS4 SoP after that PS5 showcase... should be inverted.
Interesting on PS4 already dropped a lot, could at least announce a meaty price cut for it.
