Sony just wrapped up its early August 2020 State of Play showcase. Here's everything the company revealed.
The show kicked off with a decent look at Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, Toys for Bob's lovely-looking platformer. The headline announcement is Dingodile is a playable character - a first for the series. The new N. Verted mode looks cool, too.
Then came the news the entire Hitman trilogy will gain PlayStation VR support, including the upcoming Hitman 3. Our Ian Higton is very excited indeed.
Brilliant time-bending puzzle platformer Braid is getting an Anniversary Edition with redrawn art and a developer commentary.

The Control Expansion 2 AWE trailer offered us a glimpse at a bearded Alan Wake.
