A new video program from Sony called State of Play will debut next week, focusing on PS4 and PSVR news and updates. E3 and other large events have become less relevant and viable, and many companies have chose to approach things in a more controlled and probably less expensive way in the form of streaming.
The first episode will feature upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR software, including new trailers, game announcements, and gameplay footage. Sony also said it wouldn't be hosting a PlayStation Experience this year as well.

Last year Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) made the shock announcement that it wouldn't be attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2019 - the first time in the event's history. The idea of getting a Nintendo Direct-style presentation from PlayStation is super exciting and it makes you wonder what they'll show off. Sony is playing its cards close to its chest with today's announcement, opting not to give us any clues about the games State of Play might be covering. We probably won't get a PS5 reveal this soon, or any other hardware for that matter (sorry, Vita 2). But we're really hoping for some games to be revealed.
Indeed, Sony's Sid Shuman has already confirmed that additional State of Play broadcasts will air throughout the year. You'll be able to tun in via on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, or simply catch up on the video after the fact.
