Where to watch PlayStation's State of Play livestream

Announced today via a blog post, PlayStation is launching "State of Play", a live broadcast that will bring "updates and announcements from the world of PlayStation". E3 and other large events have become less relevant and viable, and many companies have made a decision to approach things in a more controlled and probably less expensive way in the form of streaming. Whilst citing several reasons why it now looks as though the company is taking a more direct approach for its announcements, revealing a new programme called State of Play.

Sony may not be coming to E3 2019 this year, but that won't stop the proprietor of PlayStation Nation from revealing what comes next for the PS4 and PSVR.

Sony noted that the first episode "is just the beginning", and that "State of Play will return throughout the year with more updates and announcements".

There are still the main four that PlayStation has in the works: The Last of Us Part II, Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding, plus other slightly smaller projects.

What would make this worthwhile? It might be too soon for that, too.

Anyway, those who're interested in watching the inaugural episode can do so over on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, or Facebook. As many will likely be quick to point out, Nintendo has been well-known to utilize this method by giving video game fans information for its platforms by way of various Nintendo Directs.

Facebook said, that having been alerted by police, it had deleted the gunman's accounts "shortly after the livestream commenced". Twitter and Google, which owns YouTube, say they're working to remove any video of the shootings from their sites, as well.
