What won’t be shown at the State of Play?
While many Sony fans have a lot to look forward to, it’s ill-advised to go into the show expecting any surprises. In an official blog post, Sony confirmed that the show won’t feature the kind of first-party heavy hitters fans usually hope to see at Sony’s shows.
