State of Play returns this Thursday, August 6

Updates on upcoming PS4 and PS VR titles take the spotlight.

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!

  • Are you Kidding? This is BS right?
    WTF why you gonna do a PS4 focus event?.
    We are hunger for PS5 info not PS4.

    • We might not get PS5 pre-irder info, but those PS4 games are still relevant for PS5, as they have to be cross-gen and could get some good PS5 upgrades like 4k/60fps. (Just like Avengers and Kena being PS4 games that also run on PS5.)

  • You have to be joking. It’s 3 months out. Just tell us the price and put up the preorders already!

  • Great news, I hope we see some VR gameplay for SW squadrons coming out in October 2nd.

  • You know what game was designed to be the answer for Resident Evil? Now that Resident Evil Remake brought back the attention guess who is back on the house ;) It’s just a rumor, don’t believe me

  • New handheld please

  • At this point in time i m just waiting for sony to say and the price is 450/400$ each, and say Fairly Price Equation, also mention you would never regret buying a PS5, Just Hope it’s affordable!!!
    Note: I m getting pissed off my YouTubers clickbaiting, glad sony said no major ps5 announcements
    I guess its for the August 10th State of Play

  • Let me be clear.. I am not interested. I am working through my backlog and putting money aside for next gen. I have zero interest in upcoming PS4 or VR games.

    We need to know the important details about the PS5, launch is in three months and we know practically nothing, not even the launch line up. Give us the info we need to know ASAP

    1. Launch date
    2. Price
    3. Launch line up

    The pathetic price war that you have got going to Microsoft is petty and childish.

  • It clearly says no pre-orders dates, not worth seeing it 👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾

  • Well done Microsoft. You put on such am abysmal next gen showcase 10days ago that Sony doesn’t even have to do anything. I kid, I kid, Sony were never going to do anything to have to react to Microsoft lol. Its funny though how all the “why is Sony so quiet?” remarks stopped over a week ago from the moron Xbots and gaming “journalists”. If anything they WANT Sony to stay quiet.

    Hopefully we get a quick look at the PS5 UI which was teased in the June Showcase. If not, no biggie. ^_^

  • Yea sorry, but I could not care less about this. The new generation is almost upon us and we’ve seen practically nothing of the PS5. You showed like 7 minutes of gameplay last show including indie titles which almost no one cares about.
    It’s just bad timing, when, having seen practically nothing of the PS5, you schedule an event focused on this ending generation.

  • We’re possibly 3 months away from the systems release and don’t have a price or solid date confirmed yet, this is ridiculous…

  • Thanks for the heads up on what to expect. Can’t wait!

  • PS4 controllers not functioning at all with PS5 games just because you say so is infuriating!

    • why would we want devs to waste time on adapting to previous gen controllers instead of focusing on maximizing the new one.

  • Please let it be there news on Project LDI/Little Devil Inside.
    Thanks for the heads up too! See you all there

    WTH? Why are you having a state of play for the ps4 at the end of its life cycle only a few months before the next gen comes out? It’s pointless and aggravating!

    WHAT’S TAKING SO LONG FOR A PRICE AND DATE OF THE PS5!!! It’s supposed to come out in only 2 months. You know people NEED TO TAKE PRE-ORDERS to start paying it off especially if it will cost $500 PLUS taxes, PLUS 2nd controller, PLUS games, PLUS extra warranty.

  • 3 months from launch…

  • You clearly care more about the PS4 than the PS5. Just give us more PS5 details please!!!

  • Omg!!! So many new stories in the blog!!! This sounds very interesting!

  • good joke, right? its a joke, right? :/

    srly: no one care about this, now

  • Very strange move by SONY!
    i believe it was a perfect opportunity for Sony to seal the deal by showing off some gameplay footage from the likes of Horizon and Miles Morales. Ofcourse we will get gameplay footage before launch but why are they delaying and killing the momentum? Whats the rationale behind this slow drip-feed approach by Sony? By this time, most of us expect Sony’s marketing to floor the pedal. But its still not happening with launch so near. I was also expecting a full UI deep dive in August. Seems like we’ll have to wait more.

  • I have always been a playstation guy, but between not giving a price and now announcing another event without the price reveal and xbox pushing their game pass so hard that supposedly let’s you download games instead of trying to play games by streaming them with a lag like when I tried psnow ,if they drop a good price first I might pre-order and make the jump. Give us the price already!

  • please put preorders up

  • I have a request: Please Specify(ASAP)In Future PlayStation 5 Feature Updates, Weather Or Not It’s PS4 Games Backwards Compatibility Means That PS4 Games Will\Can Play From A PS5’s SSD Or Not(Only From External Storage)… THANKS… O.O

  • I dont care about PlayStation 5 News anyway im not hurry to brought it this Year…..
    Im gonna wait to get it at normal price instead to brought it at overpriced retail price at release because when you see that if you brought youre new games on PS4 or on PS5 it will be the same games anyway except if you brought it on PS4 you will pay 60$US/80$CAD and if brought it on PS5 you will pay 70$US/90$CAD you will need to spend 10 or 20 bucks more depending on which country you live when i saw that i was “WTF is this man! then when i see that news “The newly upcoming PS4 games or actual PS4 Games who have been release in 2020 and 2019 would be upgradable on PS5 and all other PS4 titles gonna be retrocompatible on PS5” i was so happy^^ and then when i saw that the actual PS4 games or upcoming PS4 would be upgradable on PS5 for 0$ Cost i was more happy^^ because i dont have to wait to brought my games on PS5 or to scraped an entire library of PS4 games

    But ive got an unplanned purchase of 2 new pair of eyeglasses then i prefer to change my 7yrs old eyeglasse instead of purchase my new PS5 this year but im not hurry to wait 6 or 8months much longer to play on PS5
    And also BATTLEFIELD 6 Resident Evil 8 Horizon 2 Gran Turismo 7 and the Remake of Demon’s Soul would not be release on PS5 until Autumn 2021 then what was hurry lol
    That why i will brought my PS5 on March of April 2021 on the 2nd wave of PS5 Retail…..

    But i will watch this Thursday Stream for sure^^

  • Thank you for each state of play! 😷

  • Shame that 99% of the people that watch the video on youtube wont know there wont be any ps5 news and will downvote it to hell.

  • Are you gonna reveal ps5 price?

  • Nobody cares

  • I say delay as much as you have to when it comes to the ps5. I want it to be nice and ready. Plus I mean its understandable because of the pandemic…
    The PS4 still has more then enough content for me, for now. Lol

  • It’s a shame that there’s no PlayStation 5 Pre-order updates!!!

  • It’s a shame that there’s no PlayStation 5 Pre-order updates

  • Yep and I saw the website of resident evil village is gonna show the next update and so excited to see it so then the Playstation fans

  • Cant watch as it is on Friday at 1am for me and I have school so will watch in the morning during school

  • Cant watch as it is on Friday at 1am for me and I have school and need sleep

  • Sony and Microsoft are playing poker right now.

  • completely deflated all hype from me. they’ve shown nothing interesting at all really and now more nothing. they’re biggest announcement so far was that they’re making a ps5 pro ALREADY. i might aswel just wait for that, buy that in 2-4 years whenever its out, and just get a pc instead for now.

    completely, do not care at all about state of plays anymore. what is the point?

  • 😋😋😋😋 give us ps5 updates more

  • Give me PS5 teardown already. I want it.

  • Seeing as you have merged the EU and US blog into one, can you please start adding UTC times in addition to the Pacific and Eastern times?

  • I Don’t Know What This Is But It Sounds Cool.

  • Hola, me pone feliz que para el siguente año, sony tiene preparado muchas cosas de interes para los usuarios, eso me da varias expectativas, al espectar la presentación de la siguente generación, la nueva consola PS5, espero que tenga una tecnologia superior que satisfazca mis interes personales, como jugador, gracias.

  • Kinda have zero fate on Sony and Microsoft on releasing there console this year. No price and no release date yet on either side. Yup I still don’t believe on either side until I see it to believe it. Time is running out on both show. Would be better on Sony part to at least addressed something about delayed until next year so they don’t hype up and then disappointed. But hey to each is own I guess.

  • Just give us some more on Elden Ring please :| i would literally jump from excitement if it was only a 5sec long clip at this point..

  • There is no sequel to god of war so why is everyone asking for it to be revealed?

  • Guys there is no sequel to god of war. Santa monica has already confirmed there will bo longer ve a sequel. So PLEASE Stop asking for a trailer

  • Theres only one reason why they are not giving us more info on the ps5 at this stage, they will be delaying it until 2021 its obvious they are not waiting for Microsoft to price the series x, even if sony were to price ps5 first, and Microsoft under cut them sony would just re price ps5 to under cut Microsoft accordingly, sony are back tracking on there release schedule for whatever reason.

  • Enough already with price chicken with Xbox!!!

  • Please show something from ((Project Awakening))

  • I am really excited for Sony regardless of PS4 or PS5. As long as you continue to give us some Exclusive AAA titles. I am very pleased with you guys. Well done so far on your new mile stone with giving us the Next-gen Console. I am super excited for all the official announcements that have made by you guys so far. You guys have really proved to be working hard to give us of what we need. Best of luck!
