PlayStation State of Play September 2022 live report

Metal Gear? It can't be (it probably won't be). Join us for all the news live from 11pm BST. Live

The fun and games leading up to this weekend's Tokyo Game Show continue with PlayStation's State of Play - 20 minutes of news and reveals that may well contain a few surprises. Watch along with us live from 11pm BST.

With the show acting as a curtain raiser of sorts for TGS, expect a Japanese focus on what's shown tonight.

Coverage

Sable says: Ronin looked cool
It looked grand - I know there'll be some disappointed that we didn't see the likes of Silent Hill or Metal Gear, but these new IPs look great, plus the likes of Project Eve are bringing the kind of over-the-top spectacle that I really love.

Martin Robinson

Not a terrible showing, all told.

Martin Robinson

Tekken 8, Rise of the Ronin and Yakuza Ishin finally coming to the west. Oh, and I shouldn't really forget the PSVR2 showing with Demeo and Star Wars Tales from the Galaxy's Edge.

Martin Robinson

Chunky ones, even.

Martin Robinson

So, that was an odd one - by my count, though, we got three pretty good reveals.

Martin Robinson

ChrisOTR says: Thanks for the coverage today Martin, very chunk work. Appreciated.
Thanks for your chunky comments.

Martin Robinson

(I'm not being very subtle there)

Martin Robinson

ChrisOTR says: Hmmm, well, some good stuff for other people, I guess. Personally I was hoping for more for PSVR2.
Likewise I was hoping for a little more, but what was there looked splendid. And here's hoping we might get some more detail on that in the next few days.

Martin Robinson

Ah, well - we're ending with a God of War Ragnarok trailer, it seems.

Martin Robinson

I guess they're really drilling down on that style of game there at the moment.

Martin Robinson

So that looks Nioh-esque - as does Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which is also in that same lineage.

Martin Robinson

Rise of the Ronin, from Koei Tecmo - coming in 2024, and a PS5 console exclusive.

Martin Robinson

VektreX says: Stellar Blade looks like it could be from Platinum, it looks chunk
Can we make chunk happen? If only for tonight.

Martin Robinson

An action game that looks absolutely spectacular.

Martin Robinson

But this will be Project Eve.

Martin Robinson

Sorry, that's not exactly the kind of insight you come to Eurogamer for.

Martin Robinson

I don't know what this is but it looks great.

Martin Robinson

This is what I used to TGS for - a mech action game told with real heft and drama. It's what I guess I'd call 'chunk'.

Martin Robinson

Here's a PlayStation Clubcard now, or something.

Martin Robinson

It's wonderful that Yakuza's gone from a super niche thing to a series that now commands global attention. And rightly so - it's one of the best big budget series around.

Martin Robinson

There'll be more Yakuza news, of course, during tomorrow's livestream.

Martin Robinson

That's awesome, though - there's been so much demand for a localisation of this.

Martin Robinson

This is a long-awaited dream - Yakuza Ishin finally getting what looks like a remaster, and a western release at last!

Martin Robinson

SBandy says: "looks chunk" Is that what the kids are saying now?

Martin Robinson

Demeo, a first-person tabletop game, is also announced for PSVR2.

Martin Robinson

So yes, there's Tekken 8. Now onto PSVR2 games, starting off with Star Wars Tales From the Galaxy's Edge.

Martin Robinson

Tekken's the game that was bundled in with some of the original PlayStation packages.

Martin Robinson

I can't think of a more PlayStation fighting game than Tekken, either.

Martin Robinson

I've a blindspot to Namco fighting games, I'm afraid - I'm a Virtua Fighter fanboy. This looks chunk though.

Martin Robinson

It's straight into Tekken.

Martin Robinson

Okay, for real here we go.

Martin Robinson

Sony always manages to be late somehow.

Martin Robinson

Well, here we... go?

Martin Robinson

Give us Gradius 6.

Martin Robinson

And hey, let's dream big.

Martin Robinson

Kami says: What was the last Armored Core game? (Oh god, was it the awful Kinect one?)
I adore that Kinect game! It's cracker and has some hilarious setpieces in it - like the pissy apple condundrum. Great game.

Martin Robinson

Maybe even a new Silent Hill!

Martin Robinson

After seeing Pikmin 4 finally being revealed earlier today I'm now thinking anything is possible.

Martin Robinson

What I'd really love - and this is pie in the sky stuff - is to see FromSoft's new Armored Core. Could you imagine?

Martin Robinson

There's also promise of more on PSVR2, of course - we know scant little at present.

Martin Robinson

So we'll see plenty, I'm sure, from the likes of Koei Tecmo, Square Enix, Capcom and maybe - just maybe! - even Konami.

Martin Robinson

Well it's Tokyo Game Show time and a lot of these announcements and reveals will be lined up for the show.

Martin Robinson

Oh you mean what to expect tonight?

Martin Robinson

Baritone says: Hi Martin. What's the word on the street?
It's 'PARKING RESERVED' on mine, but that's an overzealous neighbour who was getting annoyed about people parking in his spot so he painted it himself so it's not official or anything.

Martin Robinson

It's absolutely pelting it down here in Lewisham, and I'm all cosy in my shed with a beer waiting for it all to kick off.

Martin Robinson

Well hi, hello and how do you do?
