PlayStation State Of Play March 9: Start Time And How To Watch
The 20-minute broadcast will include games for PS4 and PS5, but will not include new information on PlayStation VR 2.
Sony has announced the next PlayStation State of Play event, which airs today, March 9, with a focus on PS4 and PS5 games from Japanese publishers. It will run for about 20 minutes, and during that time, we can expect to see more information on previously announced games as well as brand-new reveals. Here's everything you need to know about watching the livestream and when it starts. [Update: The livestream is now over, although you can rewatch it in its entirety below. We've also assembled a list of our coverage from the event, with more still to come.]

What time is the PlayStation stream?
Today's livestream starts at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET and will last for approximately 20 minutes. Other timezones are included below:
- 2 PM PT
- 4 PM CT
- 5 PM ET
- 10 PM GMT
- 9 AM ACT (March 10)
What to expect
The 20 minutes will predominantly focus on games from Sony's Japanese publishing partners for both PS4 and PS5, though Sony said a few other partners from around the world will be featured, too. This could mean updates on games like Final Fantasy XVI, though it's, of course, unclear what the unannounced games will be. What we won't see is more information on the PSVR 2--either hardware or games--so we should expect more news on that at a later date.
Based on a leak, we might hear about a Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin demo. Spartacus, a Game Pass competitor, has also been rumored, but whether that's real (or set to be announced today) remains to be seen.
