Here we are once again with a surprise ‘State of Play’ which was suddenly announced at the start of this week but once again, PlayStation have actively played down expectations of fans to say that this briefing will be only 20 minutes long and will be focusing on third party news more than any massive PlayStation reveals. That said, 20 minutes is still a lot of time to have one or two surprises, I personally am hoping for more on Final Fantasy XVI perhaps but below, you will find all the news and trailers as it happened in this briefing:

Little Devil Inside: Gameplay Trailer
Official gameplay trailer for Neostream’s upcoming PS5 title – Little Devil Inside.
and that’s all Folks….
Short and Sweet, literally zero fanfare or big surprises as PlayStation confirmed before the event, just a nice “this is what you can look forward to”. First Class Trouble coming to PS Plus next month (Next Tuesday actually) is a welcome surprise as the PS Plus line up has yet to be announced. Otherwise, Little Devil Inside does have my attention with this gameplay trailer whilst Deathverse: Let it Die becomes the third BR revealed for PS this year, does look interesting.
Safe, solid and non spectacular, bit of a confusing surprise briefing if honest but it has people talking all things PlayStation this evening which is probably the whole point.
