PlayStation Showcase live report

God of War! Gran Turismo! Ape Escape? Join us for the fun from 9pm BST.

Sony gave E3 a miss once again this year, but that doesn't mean they don't have a big show for us - expect reveals, release dates and surprises live from 9pm BST.

Our live coverage of this event has finished.

Coverage

Cor you lot are keen! There's still five hours to go!

Martin Robinson

But also hell yes am I excited for tonight, and not just because it will bring fresh news on Gran Turismo 7.

Martin Robinson

It's because they also did an update for GT Sport today and I'm sure it's a trojan horse for something and I can't wait to find out what.

Martin Robinson

Then we'll also get to see the game with the angry bald man too I guess.

Martin Robinson

Just under one hour to go now. Who's excited?

Martin Robinson

I am - partly because of the prospect at the look at some new and exciting video games, and partly because I predict this will be the most on edge live report in some time.

Martin Robinson

And when I say on edge, I mean I'll be on the edge of consciousness because I've been up since 5am and have just had a big glass of cheap red wine with my dinner.

Martin Robinson

I reckon there'll be enough to keep me awake, tho.

Martin Robinson

Gran Turismo 7 and the new God of War are pretty much guaranteed - and guaranteed to have me on the edge of my seat a little - then there's the potential for a look at what Bluepoint's up to next, as well as a look a little further out for the future of PlayStation.

Martin Robinson

It's easy to forget it's been a long time since we've had an update from PlayStation - that's a big stretch of silence, so I'm sure they'll have plenty to say.

Martin Robinson

If the whispers I've heard have any substance, this could be a fun 40 minutes.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, I'm going to step away for a short while - I'll see you back here 15 minutes before the big show starts!

Martin Robinson

Look I don't want to admit I'm massively the worse for wear but I've just been replaying some of Death Stranding and the story is making total sense.

Martin Robinson

This might be a long 40 minutes for me.

Martin Robinson

I wonder if Kojima might make an appearance tonight? Even though there are murmurings that KJP are being courted by Microsoft that shouldn't rule out an appearance endorsing the rumoured Metal Gear Solid remake, or finally revealing Abandoned really is Silent Hills.

Martin Robinson

I mean of course not. Maybe there's one final Death Stranding Director's Cut trailer for us all though.

Martin Robinson

I'm baaaack! And my living room is now doused in the blue from this holding screen some 12 minutes before kick-off.

Martin Robinson

A sweet 303 line kicks in there too - it's like Ceephax just hijacked the normal ambient music you get for these holding screens.

Martin Robinson

While I love the convenience of doing these from my living room, I do wish I was sat in some far away auditorium waiting for the show to start.

Martin Robinson

There's just that extra bit of electricity when it's an actual live event.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, to recreate the experience I've just turned my internet off and am now trying to login to the local pub's wifi connection.

Martin Robinson

Wish me luck!

Martin Robinson

Will we get the big boss presenting? I sort of hope so, and not only because of my massive crush on Mr. Ryan.

Martin Robinson

It'd just be nice to have that personal touch, y'know.

Martin Robinson

What kind of biscuits though? We need details!

Martin Robinson

On the soundtrack side of things, Ceephax has stepped aside for some more sombre piano, which can only mean we're just five minutes away from the start.

Martin Robinson

Ah, no wonder you kept that quiet. A lovely biscuit, but one with a troublesome history.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, we're not here to talk about Nazis tonight! This show is nearly go!

Martin Robinson

I'm not familiar with the history of jaffa cakes, but I bet there's some nasty shit there if you dig deep enough.

Martin Robinson

Still, a lovely biscuit. I just saw an advert for the 'Jonut' today - a half donut, half jaffa cake - and I just thought that must have been a good day in the office for whoever thought that one up.

Martin Robinson

LESS THAN ONE MINUTE!

Martin Robinson

bcdcdude: Apologies... But C'mon Shenmue IV !!

I'm with you. BELIEVE!

Martin Robinson

I love that somehow Sony still runs late to these things.

Martin Robinson

Unless my stream is super delayed?

Martin Robinson

AWAY WE GO!

Martin Robinson

It's - A CITY!

Martin Robinson

Why are we watching a 2004 advert for PlayStation?

Martin Robinson

I mean, I'm into it.

Martin Robinson

But you do sometimes get the impression some of the people who call the shots at Sony might have had a bit too much upnose.

Martin Robinson

Still, it's stylish and maybe this is what the kids are into these days.

Martin Robinson

Well, that was something.

Martin Robinson

I have to say, though, I am sort of into the PS2-era arrogance around Sony that's back.

Martin Robinson

Not into its bullshit on pricing and whatnot though, obviously.

Martin Robinson

Anyway, here's Jim!

Martin Robinson

And what is this...

Martin Robinson

Is that one button undone on his shirt?

Martin Robinson

My knees actually trembled at that.

Martin Robinson

I'm jelly at the moment.

Martin Robinson

Mostly because of Jim's undone button, but also because of this KOTOR remake.

Martin Robinson

Which now seems to be a PS5 exclusive? Disappointing not to see any footage there.

Martin Robinson

Aspyr are good - they have handled the previous ports of KOTOR - but I'd like to see what a remake from them looks like.

Martin Robinson

Anyway! A PNO3 sequel!

Martin Robinson

Or whatever that mad Capcom thing was.

Martin Robinson

This is an awesome looking action game in the vein of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry - which had me thinking it's Pragmata for a second.

Martin Robinson

But - well, I don't know what it is, but it sure looks like a slightly janky Platinum game to me.

Martin Robinson

It's enjoyably overblown, I'll give it that.

Martin Robinson

Project Eve, that is.

Martin Robinson

From a Korean studio called Shift Up.

Martin Robinson

Oh here's Tiny Tina!

Martin Robinson

I was just going to keep respectfully silent, but...

Martin Robinson

It's only upwards from that! Here's Luminous Studio's new thing.

Martin Robinson

So Forspoken, then - our first proper look at it.

Martin Robinson

Sorry, took some time Googling what it was called - I'm blaming the pub's shit wifi.

Martin Robinson

I was enjoying it until what sounded like Danny Wallace turned up.

Martin Robinson

Huge young adult vibes from this, which obviously worked wonders for Horizon Zero Dawn.

Martin Robinson

This looks like an equally lavish AAA thing.

Martin Robinson

With a fair bit of meat to its bones - consider us very interested!

Martin Robinson

Here's the new Rainbow Six spinoff which I've already forgotten the name of.

Martin Robinson

Extraction! That's the one!

Martin Robinson

Because the original name of Rainbow Six: Track and Trace wasn't go to fly anymore.

Martin Robinson

I'd actually love to play Rainbow Six: Track and Trace.

Martin Robinson

Sounds like a proper old school Rainbow Six. As opposed to this weird new thing.

Martin Robinson

ShiftBreaker: What if we mixed The Division and Metal Gear Survive? Haha, just kidding. Unless...

The dream!

Martin Robinson

Remedy's Alan is Awake remaster is up next. Yes please.

Martin Robinson

Yup, this and improved cutscenes and all sorts of awesome stuff!

Martin Robinson

Don't hate me for this - I'm really excited for the next gen versions of GTA5.

Martin Robinson

Though to be honest it's hard to see much of an upgrade in that trailer.

Martin Robinson

Euronymous: You're hated now Martin

*sadface*

Martin Robinson

GhostWire: Tokyo! Looking very much like an early 00s Atlus game.

Martin Robinson

I mean that as a compliment! I just think of Maken X whenever I see this.

Martin Robinson

But, like, a good Maken X.

Martin Robinson

Hopefully.

Martin Robinson

This has been great so far - no real let up and some fun surprises.

Martin Robinson

Here is Guardians of the Galaxy!

Martin Robinson

ganonms: No mention to Bethesda or Microsoft in that Ghostwire trailer...

Ha, good spot! I sort of wondered where they were!

Martin Robinson

The writing seemed bubbly enough, but the animation couldn't quite keep up. Still looked like a lot of fun, mind.

Martin Robinson

Oh this is the Vampire Masquerade battle royale that I believe is out already?

Martin Robinson

I was going to say this is basically an advert - but this whole 40 minutes is an advert so that would have been something of a nonsense.

Martin Robinson

Deathloop! Which is out next week, and which I think I'm allowed to say I really like?

Martin Robinson

Or like what I've played of, at least - which for embargo purposes is the first five hours.

Martin Robinson

It's mad and stylish and a bit more action-oriented than the likes of Dishonored.

Martin Robinson

Apologies for the brief silence there - my laptop crashed just as the Kid A/Amnesia Radiohead experience by Epic Games was announced. Glitchcore!

Martin Robinson

But here's Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy being remastered for PS5 and PC.

Martin Robinson

Now that Sony's got Nixxes I think PC's a big part of everything they do now.

Martin Robinson

Hermen Hulst also has one of his shirt buttons undone.

Martin Robinson

They've done it again.

Martin Robinson

I'm jelly. My knees trembling.

Martin Robinson

Everyone else will be getting in a tizz about this Wolverine game from Insomniac.

Martin Robinson

And I'm just thinking about Hermen and Jim's undone shirt buttons.

Martin Robinson

Yeah fuck all that though, here's Gran Turismo 7.

Martin Robinson

Being absolutely brilliantly overblown with church organ music grinding over pistons and Porsches.

Martin Robinson

And the Porsche 917 Living Legend concept I think?

Martin Robinson

Would much rather it was a proper 917.

Martin Robinson

The return of career mode, as previously trailed - and it looks to amp up the collectathon side of things.

Martin Robinson

Car mods are back too - as excited as I am for that I wonder whether they'll get close to what you can do in Forza.

Martin Robinson

Trial Mountain! The GR Yaris!

Martin Robinson

JEEPS! More Vision cars! Skylines drifting through Tokyo! LE MANS AT NIGHT AND IN THE RAIN!

Martin Robinson

LE MANS AT NIGHT AND IN THE RAIN.

Martin Robinson

I'd really like to play that video game please.

Martin Robinson

And this Spiderman sequel too while you're at it.

Martin Robinson

Wolverine is a long way off, I'd imagine. I'm up for Venom in Spiderman 2 though - which itself isn't until 2023.

Martin Robinson

You might even be looking at 2025 for Wolverine.

Martin Robinson

Here, then, is the new God of War.

Martin Robinson

He doesn't look any happier than last time out.

Martin Robinson

I need to endeavour a bit more with the most recent God of War - I've bounced off it hard twice. Which is odd as I've loved the older games.

Martin Robinson

I think I just really dislike that kid.

Martin Robinson

This looks a lot like more God of War, though, which I'm sure will delight many.

Martin Robinson

Aye that it does. God of War Ragnarok looking very meaty indeed upon our first look at it.

Martin Robinson

And that's the meat of the show, I believe.

Martin Robinson

A strong showing, I thought - I'd love more dates and details when it comes to the likes of Gran Turismo 7, but of course I do.

Martin Robinson

Wolverine was a pleasant surprise, Spiderman 2 is of course a yes please.

Martin Robinson

(oh I missed that Gran Turismo 7 is out next March!)

Martin Robinson

Feel free to tune out - because that's exactly what I'm doing now!

Martin Robinson

It's been lovely having you here along with me. The news team, who have more stamina than me, will be keeping the site updated with the drip of information from this post-show section. I, however, am off to bed.

Martin Robinson

themightyant: Enjoy the pub Martin!

I WASN'T IN THE PUB! I WAS JUST USING THEIR WIFI.

Martin Robinson

Also this bottle of wine I just had would have cost like £15 in the pub as opposed to the fiver it cost me.
