Sony State of Play and Nintendo Direct: Upcoming Gaming Reveals

Updated: Sep 15, 2023

Sony has officially announced a new State of Play presentation scheduled for tomorrow.

This 20-minute show promises updates on 10 games across the PS5, PS4, and PS VR2 platforms. You can catch the event live on PlayStation's official YouTube and Twitch channels on September 14 at 3:30 a.m. IST in India and September 13 at 3:00 p.m. PT in the US.

Nintendo, too, has gaming excitement in store with their Nintendo Direct event.

While the announcement teases "something for everyone," including updates on major releases and the PS VR2, don't anticipate major bombshell reveals.

Sony emphasizes that this showcase will shine a spotlight on indie and third-party titles, primarily featuring updates for previously announced games.

This announcement precedes the Tokyo Game Show, commencing later in the week.

Sony has kept the details rather cryptic but hints at "great updates from our amazing Japanese partners, along with a few other surprises from developers all around the world."

Notably, Capcom confirmed earlier that Resident Evil Village is coming to the PS VR2. Since the next-gen virtual reality headset is set to launch in early 2023, this event is an ideal opportunity for Sony to showcase its capabilities.

Additionally, expect some gameplay footage for the Resident Evil 4 remake, slated for a March 2023 release. This State of Play should offer a glimpse of what fans can look forward to on the upcoming PlayStation Portal streaming device, coming this fall.

Nintendo has maintained its tradition of keeping fans guessing about what to expect, but there's widespread speculation about the possible reveal of the "Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" (working title).

Notably, Nintendo UK has decided not to livestream the event on its UK YouTube channel as a mark of respect during the national mourning period following Queen Elizabeth II's passing. Instead, a video-on-demand presentation will be available on the channel at 4:00 pm UK time.

In other news, Nintendo's latest release, Splatoon 3, has achieved remarkable success in Japan.

Within the first three days of its launch, the game recorded 3.45-million-unit sales in the country, nearly doubling the sales of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

This marks the highest domestic sales level for any Nintendo Switch software at launch.

Sony has verified that the PS Remote Play app is compatible with the 4K Chromecast with Google TV device and the BRAVIA XR A95L model smart TV.

In the US and in the UK, the update adds new voice commands you can use: Simply say "Hey PlayStation, help" to quickly bring up help pages or "Hey PlayStation, what’s new?" to check for the latest features and the current PS Plus lineup.

And if you want to play a game in the middle of the night and don't want anybody else hearing what you're up to, you can now mute the beeping sound the console makes when you turn it on or off. Simply go to Beep Sound under System in Settings and then mute or adjust its volume.
