PS5 to Load Games 10 X Faster Than PS4

Takashi Mochizuki of The Wall Street Journal has uploaded a video to his Twitter account, that showcases the vastly improved loading times of the PS5 when compared with the current generations PS4 Pro.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is the game used for the footage, which was shot during an investor meeting that has recently taken place. The use of Marvel’s Spider-Man as the game used in the footage could be a reference to the recently confirmed backward capabilities offering of the PS5.


In the footage, we get to see the difference in loading times on a PS4 Pro and the current PS5 development kit. While it’s not a proper example of a game loading, it is an example of how fast the two consoles render the in-game streets of New-York. Leading the way, of course, is the PS5 which seems to be rendering 10 X faster than the current generation console.

In the footage, it’s quite obvious that the PS4 Pro has to stop a few times to properly render the gorgeous looking streets of New York. The PS5 development kit, on the other hand flies through it with ease.

Hopefully, we’ll be hearing more about the next generation console at some point this year, especially since Sony has opted to stay out of E3 2019.
