We may not be having E3 this year (hopefully it will come back) but the PlayStation Showcase is live tonight at 9PM UK time. This is the first PlayStation showcase since 2021 so it's safe today that fans are excited that Sony has something to share. 

The event should hopefully give us a look at some upcoming PS5 and PSVR2 releases and perhaps even more than a few unannounced titles that will become the next big anticipated release. Sony itself says we can "Expect a glimpse at several new creations from PlayStation Studios, as well as spellbinding games from our third-party partners and indie creators." sounds exciting right?

How to watch the PlayStation Showcase 

The PlayStation Showcase will be shown simultaneously worldwide on YouTube and Twitch , on Wednesday the 24th of May (tonight!). The event starts at 9 PM BST/ 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET.

What could we see at the PlayStation Showcase?

Expect to see a lot of new games announced. Sony's website claims they expect the event to last for one hour, and depending on how far along in development the games are, that could be a lot of new titles.

As for what titles I think we'll see? Surely some web-slinging with Marvel's Spider-Man 2, and a dash of Tekken 8? Those are the titles we know exist, but expect some surprises and plenty of awesome indies too. I'm always hopeful for more Ratchet & Clank but that is a pipe dream. 

As the first event of its ilk since the February release of the PSVR2, expect to see some serious love shown to Sony's headset. The PSVR2 is an awesome headset, but currently, there aren't many killer apps for it. 

Rumours have been circulating for a long time about Sony working on new hardware too, a new handheld codenamed the Q-lite has been suspected while others believe there could also be a PS5 with a detachable disc drive (PS5 Slim). The Holy Grail would be a supercharged PS5 Pro, but that seems a long shot as this is expected to be primarily a software event.
