Fortnite continues its in-game concert series with Diplo, Noah Cyrus, and Young Thug. Diplo teamed up with Fortnite on his Party Royale DJ residency, and the concert is a premiere of his new album, Diplo Presents: Thomas Wesley. Fortnite bills the show as an “all-new sound where the frontier and future collide.”

To coincide with the event, Fortnite is bringing back favorite outfits like “Deadfire, Desperado, Rio Grande, Frontier, Rustler, and Nightlife, (and) the Knee Slapper Emote.” Those items will be available on June 24, starting at 5 p.m. PT.

When and where to watch the Diplo concert

The concert kicks off June 25 at 6 p.m. PT on the Main Stage. There will be a full rebroadcast on June 29 at 9 a.m. PT.

What to do if you can’t play the game

In the past, some players have experienced issues where they can’t log onto the game because of overloaded servers. In that case, keep an eye on streamers who play the game on Twitch, like NickEh30 or Tfue.

Has Fortnite done this before?

Yes! Fortnite is actually one of the pioneers of streaming concerts in video games, and it regularly partners with musical artists and entertainment companies for promotional activities.

Popular rock band Weezer teamed up with the game to create a whole new island to promote its release, The Black Album. The island was fashioned to look like a theme park and was called Weezer World.

The company broke ground in May when it had the exclusive rights to premiere the trailer for Tenet, the highly anticipated new movie from director Christopher Nolan.

Fortnite also teamed up with Netflix’s Stranger Things to promote the show by allowing players to get outfits based on characters of the popular series, as well as travel through portals to the show’s fabled Upside Down realm.

What other artists have performed on Fortnite?

Rapper Travis Scott most recently held a concert in April in Fortnite, and he turned it into a surreal video experience that ventured through outer space and underwater. Fortnite later tweeted that more than 27.7 million unique players participated in the event.

Marshmello, Deadmau5, Steve Aoki, and Dillon Francis have all also held concerts in the popular video game. After the success of Scott’s event, Sony announced that it was going to build a team dedicated to using Fortnite to create immersive media.

State of Play February 2023: how to watch, what to expect
Deadshot, Harley Quinn, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

The snow is slowly melting, spring is fast approaching, and PlayStation has announced its first State of Play of 2023, slated to air today. Since the last State of Play live stream aired in September 2022, God of War Ragnarok released to critical acclaim and swept The Game Awards with six trophies (including Innovation in Accessibility and Best Performance). The PlayStation VR2 also just dropped with Horizon Call of Mountain to hold VR fans over until other games come out -- some of which will be announced during the show.

As such, there's a lot riding on the show. Sony's 2023 plans are a little cloudy at present as its not currently clear what's coming beyond . While we may not get a blockbuster announcement of that scale here, we should get a better idea of what's coming from third-party and indie devs, as well as what's in store for PSVR2 post-launch. Here's how you can watch this month's State of Play stream and what to expect from it.
When is the February State of Play
The February State of Play is scheduled to air today at 1 p.m. PT. While it's not clear how long the stream will run, the PlayStation Blog confirmed that it will include more than 15 minutes of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League footage, so expect it to last upwards of 20 minutes.

Pokémon Presents February 2023: how to watch and what to expect

Pokémon Day 2023 is nearly upon us, and it will bring another Pokémon Presents showcase full of exciting announcements regarding the long-running series. As Pokémon Scarlet and Violet were quite successful despite technical problems, a lot of fans are curious to learn what's next, both for those individual titles and the franchise as a whole.
Pokémon fans who want to learn about the series' future should certainly tune into this presentation. If you're wondering how to watch it and what kinds of announcements to expect for the first Pokémon Presents of 2023, we've rounded up all of that information here for you.
When is the February 2023 Pokémon Presents?
This Pokémon Presents showcase will start at 6 a.m. PT on February 27, which is Pokémon Day, as well as the 27th anniversary of the series. The Pokémon Company says the presentation will last "around 20 minutes." 
How to watch
The February 27 Pokémon Presents will be officially live-streamed on the main Pokémon YouTube Channel. We'll embed the live stream below ahead of the presentation. Other sites and Pokémon-themed content creators will likely be co-streaming the event as well.
What to expect
Unfortunately, The Pokémon Company was light on giving any real hints as to what we'll see during this Nintendo Direct-like presentation. But if this showcase falls in line with previous Pokémon Presents live streams, then we can expect it to give us an overview of all the big Pokémon titles coming out this year. Currently, we don't know if any brand-new Pokémon games are launching in 2023; if there aren't, then hopefully we'll see some DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. 
Some leaks may have also spoiled some of the Pokémon Presents' surprises. Leakers have found data for more new Pokémon forms that could potentially come to Scarlet and Violet via updates. Meanwhile, fans found mention of Spike Chunsoft in the new Pokémon Together website's source code, so it seems likely that a new Pokémon Mystery Dungeon from that developer is coming soon. Regardless of what's actually announced, February 27 is shaping up to be a really exciting day for Pokémon fans.
