Last two years Sony had a Showcase in early September:
2020 September 16
2021 September 9

Emboldened by recent leaks, I'm going to predict that there will similarly be a showcase this September.

First the date:
I'm going to predict it will be on the 15th. (I will end up being wrong on this, I am sure.)

Second, some contents:

I'm going to predict that this showcase will have only 1 or 2 first party surprises and a handful of partner games.

I am predicting they will have a show between December and February. Either a big or "medium" show

I will predict Sony will have their show sometime between jeremy and bearimy. 

contents will include Ragnarok coming to gamepass.

The Game Awards have grown into a pretty big thing. Unless Sony has a lot, I think they'd just put a trailer or two in the game awards like last year.

Sure. I bet the show is very small like last year with teaser trailers, although it'd be awesome if they had big demos to reveal new projects.

There's already been a leak.

So were you right or wrong?
Well, someone just said there was a show next month and shared the game trailer leak.

Some have been speculating the show will be on the 8th, so that Spiderman 2 and maybe Wolverine can be at the Disney Gaming show that's on the 9th.

I feel like that probably isn't a factor, but I could see Sony going for more attention. Easy marketing.

But if that's the case then I feel like September 1st/2nd would be more likely. There's an Apple Event on the 7th, so that week is kind of busy.

Kinda makes sense.

Or maybe the disney show is the only show. Spider and wolfy will be there and that's that.

Trust me on thisTM

i don't know why disney having a gaming show means they'll show spidey or wolverine.   i predict it will be at neither.

I'm predicting that too.

But the thinking is, Disney and Sony would like it to be there.
Sony gets marketing to Disney fans, and Disney gets to show off their crown jewels.

Well my thinking is,.. wolverine is too early to be shown off.   I believe that insomniac said they had just gotten approval on the project when they announced it or something like that.  Should be quite a while before it has content polished enough to show let alone ship. 

I may take back my spiderman 2 bit though.   Miles morales shipped almost two years ago now.  Its an established game so development should go relatively fast and being insomniac and all i'll bet it ships in 2023. They could be ready to show something off especially if its targeting the first half of 2023.

The teams went from:
Spiderman 1 -> Spiderman 2

Spiderman MM -> Wolverine
