PlayStation Showcase 2023 - roundup - PlayStation streaming handheld announced



Get ready for tons of announcements, hype, and all that comes with a major publisher presentation. PlayStation has a whole hour of content ready to show off in the first PlayStation Showcase of 2023. There's rumors aplenty as to what we'll see, which consists of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR2 games from both first and third-party developers. We'll be rounding up all the announcements here, and covering all the major reveals, as usual.

It begins with a heist game. Fairgame$ seems to be a 3-player co-op game where you break in to places and rob them. Coming to PS5 and PC.

Jim Ryan is on stage to talk about the PS5 and what's in store.

Super Earth is freedom gone wild, where you go to alien planets and slaughter monsters and spread democracy in a very satirically seeming game. Helldivers 2 heads to PS5 and PC this year.

Ascendant Studios and EA have a very Dishonored looking game with a lot of powers that let you be super mobile as you take down hoards of enemies, and even beat up a dragon. Immortals of Avenum. July 20, 2023.

505 Games is publishing Ghostrunner II, out later this year.

You only have 66 days to live in this next game, which seems very Ghosts of Tsushima/Sekiro-y. You're a samurai. Parkour and cut foes down in Phantom Blade.

Artist behind Journey and Abzu is working on a new game. Giant Squid developing. Skateboards and sand and flying sharks are all in Sword of the Sea.



A robot ventures out into the world for the first time. There are mechanized pyramids and futuristic vehicles. Towers rise from underneath the earth and a lot of civilization seems to have been reclaimed by nature. Talos Principle 2 comes out this year.

Giant wolf moose hybrid and girl with sword fight evil in this next game. But then the giant beast friend dies, and is replaced with its child. Coming 2024 is Neva.



Cat Quest: Pirates of the Purribean is the latest entry in the series, out next year.

Square Enix has a game to show. Anime esthetics meet some form of cyberpunk style, in what appears to be a versus team shooter. In fact, it looks exactly like Splatoon, but you use soap instead of paint. Foamstars is releasing next year.



A top down storybook game, where you leap from the pages into a 3D world. There are mini-games and puzzles in The Plucky Squire is launching this year.

Minecraft meets cars in this blocky and realism hybrid game. Create vehicles to destroy homes with and cause mayhem for no apparent reason other than because you can.

It's finally real: Metal Gear Solid 3 Delta is the MGS3 remake we've been waiting for. Cinematic trailer only.

MGS Master Collection is also on the way, packing together the first three titles in remastered form. Volume 1, implies another release later on. Fall 2023.

Rebuild civilization in this crafting game. Ancient creatures and massive beasts roam the land in Towers of Aghasba. 2024.

Square Enix has another game. It's Final Fantasy 16. Lots of new footage in this trailer.

Alan Wake 2 is real and out on October 17th this year.

Assassin's Creed goes back to the middle east in Mirage, out Oct 12.

Revenant Hill has a cat. That's all you need to know. Cat.

Cygames actually finally has an update on GRanblue Fantasy Relink. 2023 Winter...hopefully.



Capcom's got SF6.

A colorful metriodvania game is next. All the standard fare of the genre is here and present in Ultros. Releasing 2024.

Perfect World Games is bringing us anime girls in mechs. Ride a robot horse and kill mecha bosses while you fly on a jetpack in Tower of Fantasy.

Capcom's not done yet. Dragon's Dogma II is here. Lots of cinematic trailer content.

Five Nights at Freddy's Help Wanted 2 is headed to the platform late 2023.

PSVR2 is next. Resident Evil 4 Remake is getting its VR mode.

Next is a western game. Snarky attitude is abundant in Arizona Sunshine 2. 2023.

Shoot, shoot, and gun down foes in this military FPS game. Crossfire Sierra Squad, no release date.

PSVR2 title is a shooter with some puzzle elements thanks to being able to pull objects towards yourself. Synapse launches July 4th.

Beat Saber is getting Queen music. DLC out now.

Bungie has a new game. Space shooter Marathon has been announced. It's a remake of one of their oldest games.



Destiny 2 is getting more content.

Concord is set in space and is out next year for PS5 and PC.

There's going to be a Gran Turismo tournament.

Sony is making a DualSense with a tablet built-in that can stream PS5 games specifically to the device, very similarly to just using a phone clipped to a DualSense.



PlayStation earbuds are also a thing.

Next up is a very long trailer for the new Spiderman game. Spiderman is using a black and white suit in this one, and seems angry with Venom powers. Miles Morales is in it too and you get to switch between the two.

And that's a wrap!

Honestly laughed when I saw the trailer for foamstars, Neva actually had a sad yet cute trailer to it if we're being honest. Obvious excited about the mgs remake. Predictable looking titles for a $500 PSVR2 zombies yay better go buy one now. Assassin's creed talk, we needed more of that. Spiderman 2 actually looks decent for a nice sequel the GTA switch styles were kind of nice to see where it wasn't just GTA that used that feature. Still inclined to say I'm not really interested in buying a ps5 due to ports. It was an over all decent stream. Felt like the popularity of games should've included you know actual game play where most just trailers and the old "Not actual game play." Slapped underneath it. Show us some more performance Song.

I hope the Q can be used for optional 2 screen experiences like the Wii U. It's honestly not a bad feature for the right games and right implementation.

Pretty mid. Then again, this is only a showcase and not a "State of Play".

I also laughed at the Project Q reveal when Jim Ryan said "At PlayStation, innovation is our passion." Literally a Wii U gamepad.

Marathon getting smeared like that.. What the actual FUCK, Bungie!?

...and the Playstation streaming device.. Wow... Yet another unnecessary tablet instead of Sony getting back in the portable game. Great stuff! /s

Project Q seems so useless... What's the point of a portable device where you can only stream your own games?

Doesn't the constant need of an internet connection defeat the purpose of being portable?

"At PlayStation, innovation is our passion, that's why we copied nintendo's Wii U gamepad gimmick but you need internet instead, we already did a worse copycat of Nintendo's Wiimote with the PS Move controllers, so why not do it again?"

Hope it fails harder than the vita did on the west

I didn't think Sony would see the Switch, and say, "Let's copy the Wii-U!". Wow, I didn't see that one coming.

Happy Happy Joy Joy

I'm excited for Cat Quest: Pirates of the Purribean. The first two were great, and the trailer has an adequate number of cat puns.

Kind of hoping the Q ends up hacked. Sony probably going to try and keep the cost low since its locked to their ecosystem, so it could be an interesting streaming handheld if you could connect it to other services.

Still that kind of fragile design says they really don't want it to ever leave the house.

Don't get me wrong, I love the gaming industry as a whole. But this is just kinda sad. There is no soul, no love in this. Besides the Metal Gear announcement, I don't really feel "it" for anything else. And that Gamepad knockoff? Jeez, really, I don't even know what to say.

I miss those days where there were so many great games on PS1 and 2.

    especially Nintendo because they only ever lower the price of games when they do a greatest hits/platinum hits/players choice re-release
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, and the HD collections released for 7th gen consoles too
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    @The Real Jdbye, tbh the HD collections are more justified since they include more than just 1 game per copy
