At a recent meeting on Sony’s corporate strategy, Kenichiro Yoshida, executive director of the company, spoke about the superiority of the PlayStation 5 over the PlayStation 4, as well as the features of the upcoming device. According to the head, the next-generation console processes data a hundred times faster than the PS4.
According to the Screenrant portal, citing the source, the chapter said that such impressive performance is achieved thanks to a specially developed solid-state drive (SSD). He will let the players “almost instantly navigate huge virtual worlds“. Most likely, Kenichiro Yoshida was referring to a significant reduction in boot time.
It is appropriate to recall the network merged in May 2019 line segment PS5 presentation, which shows that Marvel’s Spider-Man booted onto the console in 0.83 seconds. On PS4, this process took 8.10 seconds – ten times longer. Sony may have improved performance since then, but it is unlikely that they have grown to those announced by Kenichiro Yoshida.
The CEO also mentioned two other aspects of the PS5 that will improve immersion in the gameplay. The first is the DualSense controller technology – adaptive triggers and tactile feedback. And the second is a module that provides surround sound. According to Kenichiro Yoshida, a combination of speed, the feel of a gamepad and sound will provide “gaming experience that was previously impossible“.
PlayStation 5 should go on sale in the fall of 2020, the exact release date is still unknown.
