Let’s face it: any gamer is eager to find out for sure all the capabilities of the PS5 console, which will hit the stores in December 2020. Until now, we know about some of the features, like SSD storage or 8K support. But probably the biggest news is this: you could be installing and playing games much quicker and easier on PS5 than on the big rival Xbox Scarlett or any other platform.
The battle for supremacy in console gaming for 2020 seems to be fought between PS5 and Xbox Scarlett. The Asian and the American consoles will clash in a severe confrontation. But it looks like Sony’s PS5 has the upper hand.
Wired released the rumor
The monthly American magazine Wired released the info about PS5 providing fast and efficient downloads. Wired is being published in print and online editions, and it focuses on how technologies affect culture, the economy, and politics.
Of course, nobody likes to wait whole hours for a game to download, and Sony plans to solve that once and for all with its PS5. The future console’s Solid State Drive promises faster download speeds than all the other platforms.
“Rather than treating games like a big block of data, we’re allowing finer-grained access to the data.” says Mark Cerny.
Therefore, customized installation will be assured, getting the player the chance for him to choose which part he wants first to install. For instance, he will be able to install the multiplayer mode first in order to compete with his friends ASAP. The single-player mode will be left for later.
There will surely be a great 2020 year for the gaming industry. Rumors regarding the specs for PS5 are also saying that the console will be featuring Virtual Reality support, a virtual assistant, and many more.
