We’re just hours away from Sony’s next State of Play broadcast at the time of writing this article and we don’t necessarily want to rain on the parade, but there are rumours doing the rounds that this showing might not be the blockbuster event that many have been pining for.

Sony itself has perhaps hinted that this won’t be the biggest State of Play it’s ever hosted. When it announced the event last night, the company framed it as something of an introduction to Tokyo Game Show 2022, which begins later in the week. The suggestion is that this won’t be the place for megaton announcements, but rather updates on existing (primarily Japanese) titles.

And now, we’ve got super reliable industry leaker The Snitch telling people that the show will consist of “lots of minor games”. As such, we’d advise against setting your expectations sky high for this one. That’s not to say there won’t be any nice surprises, but again, it’s probably best to keep your cool and not hold out hope for the likes of God of War Ragnarok, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and Marvel’s Wolverine to melt out minds.

Having said all that, what do you want to see from tonight’s State of Play? Dream big, but not too big in the comments section below.
