Random: Is State Of Play PlayStation's Take On Nintendo Direct?

Sony's First State Of Play Game Announcement Broadcast Will Appear On March 25, 2019

Both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation VR were mentioned in Sony's announcement, though it didn't specify which way the majority of the reveals would skew between the two platforms.

Announced via the PlayStation Blog, State of Play - essentially PlayStation's response to Nintendo Direct or Inside Xbox - will provide "updates and announcements from the world of PlayStation".

It's a damn good idea, and one that Sony looks to take a page from as the Japanese giant will be launching its own take on Nintendo Direct, with Sony State of Play. The company will be live streaming the first State of Play episode worldwide via Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, and it will provide a video-on-demand (VOD) version shortly after the episode airs.

Sony Playstation's State of Play will feature updates on titles that have already been revealed and new announcements as well.

In any case, this first State of Play will debut on Monday, March 25 at 2 PM Eastern time. Sony also said it wouldn't be hosting a PlayStation Experience this year as well.

The first episode of this showcase series will focus on new PS4 and PS VR games, meaning there must be several new projects in the works. There will be more episodes running throughout the year, but SIE hasn't confirmed when these will be, whether that's weekly, monthly, or simply sporadically over the next few months. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can't wait to share our plans with you.
