PS5 Loading Time Demo Reportedly Revealed
See the power of the PlayStation 5.
By Adam Bankhurst
A new video posted by Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki may have given us our first look at the potential power of the PlayStation 5. Mochizuki Tweeted out the video, saying this was “Sony’s official video comparing performance of PS4 Pro vs next-gen PlayStation.” The video compares the loading times and performance of Marvel’s Spider-Man between a PS4 Pro and the potentially named PS5, and it is nearly identical to the description given in Wired’s interview with PS5 lead architect Mark Cerny that revealed the first details of the next-generation PlayStation. While the quality isn’t great and it appears to have been recorded on a phone or similar device, Mochizuki has a long history of insider information in the video game industry and this falls very much in line with that Wired interview. It’s important to note the PlayStation 5 or PS5 were never mentioned in the video, and only the words “Next Generation (Under Development)” were used to differentiate between the old and new hardware. Mochizuki further translated what was being spoken in Japanese, with phrases such as “to ensure PlayStation will remain as the best place to play, SIE to work on keeping and improving relationships with outside game developers,” and “in explaining PlayStation’s seamless feature, the company used the phrase “anytime, anywhere, without disconnections”” being said.
