The way the PS5 was advertised seems very disappointing when considering the fact that it's self proclaimed fasted ssd can't even keep up with some titles. The amount of hype Sony created with the Playstations SSD was misleading.

I expect xsx to load last gen faster, I expect ps5 to load new games faster. Its exactly what this video also showed. But I think everyone can agree that regardless, they're both pretty bloody fast and much better than we had before!

They optimized BC on XSX because they knew they lacked current gen titles? Once this gen gets of the ground and people forget to play last gen games, PS5 will outperform XSX, although not by much maybe? Exited to see how this progresses

I want to see how long it take to load a PS5 game after having to delete another game to make room. Or, how fast can you cycle through 6 games. The framing of these comparisons is biased. Yes, technically, from starting up a game, it should load faster. But you’re leaving out all the minutes (even hours) you save on Xbox due to bigger SSD and the time saved with QR.

@AIAH they're both un optimized the reason qhy xbox load older games faster because of its raw cpu power but when it will get patch they're both gonna be faster and the raw throughput of the ps5 will be faster than xbox series x

cross-platform games are not optimized to take full advantage of the PS5 SSD, I/O and compression tech. The devs gotta make sure the game is structured to work on both platforms and they won't create two completely different games for each console.
First party titles and exclusives tho, you just need to look at ratchet and clank for some impressive demo of the PS5 tech. The Xbox cannot instant load entire worlds for example. It will get better with time as devs discover ways to take full advantage of these features.
For me personally, the PS5 is the clear winner. The Dual sense controller is a game changer and the incredibly fast data processing of the PS5 might make games that were not possible before.

So, even in the games optimized for the new gen, PS5 is far from doing "double" the Series X speed. Worse, when BC games are on the arena, Series X not only manage to beat PS5 loading, but it does for a much better loading times than the Ps5 does on current gen games, in comparison.
Everyday, I see/read something new and bad about the PS5. It looks like MS caught Sony by surprise, showing a much more powerful console, and they had to pick up the Ps5 project in the middle of the development and hurry up things. Oh, just today, more videos of PS5 freezing games all around the internet.

AbrahamZX1 - 4 dager siden
No game is utilizing the full capibility of PS5's SSD yet. Not even Miles Morales or Demon's Souls. Later in the gen we'll see miliseconds load times on the PS5 and less than 10 seconds load times on the Series X. The real benefit the PS5 SSD will bring is not having to have what the player can't see in RAM. It will be able to load in assets as you turn the screen in games that maximize the SSD throughput. That will give the PS5 a huge performance advantage in games.

Even though it's not a comparison you guys should've also shown PS5 games that are built specifically with PS5's SSD. Astro's Playroom, Spiderman Miles Morales, Devil May Cry 5, Demon Souls...etc all only takes 2 or 3 seconds to load.
That way people will actually know how fast it really is if it's been taken full advantage of.

I think this possibly misses the point. This is genuinely not a head to head issue. The PS5 will generally load new gen games a bit faster, and it won't be long before new gen is all people will really care about. Regardless of that though, loading a massive openworld environment in 20s rather than the old (who knows how many) minutes on ANY console is a game changer.

Bias video because no third party are taking advantage of PS5 storage yet. The SSD on the Xbox is a old technology so developers can get the hang of it day one but the PS5 is using new storage technology which developers have not understand it yet.
