PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch News, Reviews and Features


In a similar fashion to Nintendo Direct, State of Play will give gamers regular updates and information on the world of PlayStation. Sony will use State of Play to not only reveal new games, but also to show off trailers and gameplay footage from those titles.

According to the company, these "State of Play" (nice name) showcases will highlight PlayStation 4 announcements and updates.

Sony probably saw that there's value in constant, bite-sized updates instead of putting up bombastic presentations once per year. You'll be able to tun in via on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, or simply catch up on the video after the fact.

Microsoft has been holding Inside Xbox for a long time, and Nintendo is making interesting announcements on Nintendo Direct.

The $1 million-winning tickets were sold in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New York (2) and SC . Sure, your odds are just 1 in 292.2 million - but there's still a chance! It has a cash value of $380.6 million.

Sony revealed on Friday that it would be hosting a "State of Play" livestream next week. That means Microsoft could change their plans however they see fit, while fans should take all reports with a big pinch of salt. For instance, next week's live stream showcase could feature the likes of Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us: Part 2, or even the highly enigmatic Death Stranding. There are 30 new games released across PS4, PS Vita and PS VR in a lineup headlined by Sony San Diego's MLB The Show 19.

And this is just the beginning! Hopefully a few other surprises are around the corner as well, when Sony hosts their first State of Play.
