Sony's first State of Play of 2023 is finished! In case you missed it, here's everything announced during the broadcast, including all the trailers. We got a handful of new PSVR2 games, a handful of third-party games coming to PS4 and PS5, and a bucketful of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. (If you were hoping for an announcement of Half-Life: Alyx on PSVR2, sorry, it was nowhere to be seen!)

State of Play kicked off with a look at an upcoming PSVR2 game. The Foglands is an atmospheric sci-fi western roguelike coming out in 2023. You fight monsters, scavenge loot and try to make it back before the Fog takes you. Here's the debut trailer:

Here's a surprise! Journey to Foundation is a PSVR2 game set in Isaac Asimov's Foundation universe. Foundation isn't something I would have thought would translate well as a VR action game, so I'm curious to see more. Here's the trailer.
