Sony hosted a major online showcase event on 24 May 2023 – it ran for just over an hour and featured new looks and updates on games for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation VR2.

It also preceded the Xbox Games Showcase by some distance, considering that’s not due until 11 June, and effectively kicked off a summer of gaming that’ll be E3-free this year.

Here’s everything you need to know about the PlayStation event.

What happened during the PlayStation Showcase 2023?

Sony revealed a stack of PS5 and PSVR2 games that are coming later this year or beyond.

There were games from the in-house PlayStation Studios, plus third-party and indie titles for both the console and the headset.

The event ran just more than an hour and, thankfully, was made up of mostly game trailers. There was a minor appearance from the boss, Jim Ryan.

It also unveiled Project Q – a new local gaming handheld to stream PS5 games to – and some PlayStation-branded earbuds. We’ll be covering them in more depth soon.
