If you're planning on watching the PlayStation Showcase, then you can follow along with us thanks to the PlayStation Showcase live report.

If you do miss the showcase (or want to go to bed), then, like the 2021 Showcase, it will most likely appear on YouTube shortly after the livestream ends. This means you can watch the Showcase back at your own leisure.

What games could be shown or announced in the PlayStation Showcase?

While the exact contents of the PlayStation Showcase livestream is still a mystery, we do know, thanks to the official PlayStation blog, that it will focus on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR2 games which are currently in development. This includes a look at games created by PlayStation Studios, third-party partners and indie developers.

We’re hoping it will include a look at the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Final Fantasy 16 - both of which can be easily described as two of the most interesting releases coming to PlayStation 5 this year. Maybe, if we wish really hard, a demo date for Final Fantasy 16 will be announced…

There’s also a chance we’ll see some third-party reveals for games like Metal Gear and maybe even catch a glimpse of the multiplayer projects for both The Last of Us and the Horizon series.

Hope you enjoy the PlayStation Showcase!
