    Nintendo really set up an industry precedent with its Nintendo Directs, compiling all major game announcements into a short video, and giving consumers a good look at what games are slated for the future. We saw Microsoft try out a similar format with their Inside Xbox series, where they discuss monthly Game Pass additions, new games, and more. Now, PlayStation is tossing its hat into the ring with the newly announced State of Play video series. The first stream will take place on March 25th, and will showcase upcoming titles for the PlayStation VR and PlayStation 4. You'll be able to tune in on PlayStation's official Twitch or YouTube account. As PlayStation skipped out on last year's PSX, and won't be attending this year's E3, this could be a good way for the company to continue revealing future plans for its software. Currently, there's only a few PS4 exclusives in the works, such as The Last of Us 2, Ghosts of Tsushima, Death Stranding, and Days Gone. Are you looking forward to seeing footage for any of those games?

    I'm just sitting here waiting for them to reveal the PS5 already, since they've got such a small number of exclusives in the works right now.

    It's not really copying it's not like Nintendo invented releasing short video clips of up coming titles.

    Fucking Nintendo fanboys with the always Sony copy Nintendo.

    Care to look back way before Nintendo did its direct as a means for them to save money going to exhibitions being cheap cunts.... remember buying your favourite game magazine and it included either free VHS or DVDs containing promo footage of games..

    Remember at the same time Nintendo being cheap not going to exhibitions what do you think the likes of game devs and that did.... show footage of its upcoming titles.

    So please refrain from the bs Sony copy Nintendo when fact is everyone already did this before Nintendo direct.

    I guess who cares if it's a copy. It's a win for the fans. Everyone likes the Nintendo Direct format, and for Sony fans, this is welcome news.

    We all win, what's the complain about.

    A. No, they didn't. If they did, then we wouldn't be discussing this.
    B. Dude, you have a 3DS logo as a profile picture.
    C. Ever heard of Playstation Move or the fact Playstation exists?
