Sony is expected to reveal a lot about upcoming first and third-party games during the upcoming PlayStation Showcase—hopefully filled with new IPs, critically acclaimed games like Ghost of Tsushima, new PSVR 2 titles , and perhaps, even a remake of a Metal Gear Solid title.
Sony Showcase usually has a lot of new announcements and has a longer runtime than Sony State of Play events. This time, the event is about to cross the one-hour mark and will be live on various platforms including YouTube and Twitch.
How and when to watch PlayStation Showcase live:
First, the PlayStation Showcase will be streamed live on YouTube and Twitch—beginning at 4 PM EDT/1 PM PDT on Wednesday, May 24.
In India, due to time zone difference, the showcase will go live on May 25 at 1:30 PM. So, yes, Indians will have to sacrifice their sleep.

What to expect from PlayStation Showcase 2023:
With time running out, let’s discuss what to expect from Sony’s biggest gaming show in years. As the launch of Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which is a PS5 exclusive, draws near, it seems highly likely that we’ll get a look at the first gameplay footage and learn a release date. Plus, speaking of Insomniac Games, we might even get an expanded look at Wolverine, which is targeting a 2024 release date.
Plus, with Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding already announced at The Game Awards 2022, we can expect Sony to show off more of the game – maybe even some gameplay.
Unsurprisingly, there are rumors circulating in the gaming community that suggest that Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater could be a remake. So, we might just get a trailer—if that’s for real.
Sony has also stated that PlayStation Showcase will also focus on the PSVR 2 and upcoming games for the platform. Resident Evil 4 Remake, which recently launched, may get a PSVR 2 version – previous Resident Evil games like Resident Evil Village got VR support after their initial launch.
Overall, this is going to be PlayStation’s biggest event since PlayStation Showcase 2021, and since it’s been almost two years, Sony may have some surprises in store.
