Watch the PlayStation State of Play October 27 livestream here

Sony is set to reveal more information on third-party titles during the PlayStation State of Play livestream today. Watch it all right here on Shacknews.

The next PlayStation State of Play livestream is happening today. This special stream will give players a look at some of the titles coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this year and next. You can watch the livestream below, so you don’t miss a single second of the action.

PlayStation State of Play – October 27

The PlayStation State of Play is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 27. The entire stream is set to last 20 minutes and give players an insight into some of the third-party titles releasing on the console. You can watch the livestream using the embed just below.

Sony confirmed that this special State of Play would focus on third-party releases. That means viewers should not expect any updates on Sony’s in-house games, like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 or God of War: Ragnarok. We’ll likely hear more about those games either closer to the end of the year or sometime in 2022.

As for what we could be hearing about today, it’s anyone’s guess. There are plenty of third-party developers out there currently working on a slew of titles for Sony’s PlayStation 4 and it’s new, current-gen system, the PlayStation 5. We could see some information on Earth Defense Force 6, Forspoken, or even things like the Harry Potter title and Project Eve. Next year is looking chock-full of titles, so it could be anything – even some new announcements.

No matter what’s revealed during the PlayStation State of Play on October 27, you can be certain we’ll keep you updated on it all. Stop by the Shacknews 2022 video game release date calendar to see what games have release dates and what titles are slated for release sometime next year.

      Sony announced they’re doing a Little Devil Inside deep-dive during this. It’s been one of my most anticipated titles since its reveal. It just looks cute on the surface, but it’s also a vast open world with unusual mechanics where you’re a monster researcher in a fantasy-Victorian setting, from what we already know.

        My six year old is super excited about this, also the first game he completed from start to finish when he was five, and I'm kind of excited as well, it was a fun game.

      Literally nothing here interested me except maybe Little Devil Inside. Everything else was a pass.

      and that's it apparently, weak showing.

        I disagree. It’s a showcase targeting younger kids, like the 10-14 age range. For kids that age, particularly girls, it’s a great showing.

        And that’s fine, because once kids, especially girls, hit 14-16, they often stop playing. But since in 2 years, Sony’s heavy hitting PS5 exclusive more adult 1st party titles are coming out, gotta groom your audience now. Bring in the new blood. This is basic marketing. It’s just a question of maintaining the cool factor until the younger audience is in the fold of older gamers.

          I think this is at least worthy of discussion. The changing demographics of younger gamers are only going to be influencing the games we olde people play more and more.

            Yet, I'm sure if games like Deathverse is really a "kids" game (in so much that neither is Fortnite).

            I know this was a third-party showcase, and it was up to third-party devs to make their segments, but if this was meant to feature games for younger players, there could have been better workups on that messaging to be more towards younger ones.

        New Star Ocean, Little Devil Inside, new game in the Let It Die franchise, free Bugsnax expansion. But it was more of a kid friendly showcase in tone, overall.

          Little Devil looks cool, did they say anything about a release date?

            October 27, 2021 4:18 PM

            Nope. It was originally supposed to be this year iirc, I think it’s just indefinite now.

                I bet it’ll be one of those things where because of all the big titles that are getting shuffled around next year, they’ll wait to pick a release date only after the biggest games are somewhat confirmed.

          Have they said anything about that, yet? I was really hoping it would be wireless but I thought they said last year it might not be.

            They haven’t said anything one way or the other yet.
