Talking about the SSD and game installs, PS4 games should ‘in theory’ get quite a performance boost when playing on a PS5 right? Especially if devs release PS5 patches for them

I would imagine so.
Anything that has ingame loading of sections of map should see a huge drop in that loading time. I'm playing Borderlands 3 at the moment and I can see the loading times for travel between zones being slashed and that alone would be a nice upgrade and even if all they did was made it rock solid 60fps for all co-op I think that would be a welcome upgrade without any shiny new graphics and should be pretty easy to implement.

I can think of quite a few games where all they need to do is make it stable 60fps and cut the loading and it be seen as a worthwhile upgrade and make people buy a definitive edition type version with all dlc and cost almost strawberry float all to make.

This is something I'd like to see addressed next gen. Is there a reason more games can't stream directly off the disc any more?


Imagine the racket a OG PS4 would make if it was constantly reading the disc :lol: :dread:


:lol:

I remember playing Uncharted 4 when my wife and kid had gone to bed. I had to use headphones to hear it as I couldn't turn the surround volume up loud enough to drown out the console without waking people.

Also, Digital Foundry did a test a while back of the speed benefits of using an SSD on PS4 and it improved times slightly but wasn't quite a game-changer. However, the gist of what Mark Cerny said in the PS5 reveal is that PC SSD usage is, relatively, slow but the PS5 SSD is specially optimised for speed via the hardware and software.

I'd think it would be a lot easier to optimise storage when you know exactly what the hardware is in every machine and if they're designing that hardware with transfer speed in mind in the first place.

Tech YouTuber, Daniel, has apparently got pics of a real, live PS5 Dev Kit.






He theorises that the consumer product could look related.

I'd be very surprised if the final retail machine looks anything like the devkit.
It's going to be a dull box that they can mass produce with ease rather than anything fancy and I'd rather pay less than spend extra for a fancy case that I then take no notice of for 99.99% of the time.

The cooling channel in the front makes sense when you consider a console often ends up suck in cabinets without access to a lot of air. The front of the console is the only part that can be relatively sure it will have access to good ventilation so it makes sense to draw in from there; which is pretty important since the hardware specifications seem to indicate that it will need a beefy cooling solution. It seems like Sony came up with that design to idiot-proof the thing against anyone wedging it somewhere it doesn't get much airflow.

Of course, I do not expect the final version to look like that, however I would not be surprised if we saw a front intake with a similar design ethos. Water cooling definitely won't happen though. Too expensive and adds too many potential points of failure for a mass consumer product.

A stylish V to signify “5” with cooling benefits?

That sounds like a winning idea right there.

V is for victory. This thing is going to be a beast and i hope they have enough stock day one. Naturally i will be preordering this with a few games and probably upgrade the internal storage to 8tb day one.

An idea of the potential weather effects we could see Next Gen, impressive looking stuff!

V for Vendetta because Hugo Weaving will personally give you fireworks if you buy one.

An 8TB SSD is around £5,600 - but you can currently get £30 off using code DIGI30. Only really casual players won't do the upgrade.

Peter knows. I recall the original Xbox being shown in an incredible metal X-shaped design and the retail version didn't *quite* end up that way. The (original) Wii remains my fave console design; small, slick, quiet and stylish.

Built in ssd will be 256gb from what i hear, but it will also allow an addition normal hdd. That will be 8tb.

Yeah, I think the SSD will be (in comparison to a more traditional HDD) relatively low capacity. Let's face it, Sony still push a 500Gb HDD as being standard on PS4 consoles in the UK so they're unlikely to put a large, expensive SSD into the PS5.

With increasing game sizes, I suspect that the PS5 will only be able to store one or two "AAA" games on the SSD... and the idea will be that you download a game (with data from either the server or a disc) when you want to play it. Additionally, there could be the option to connect more storage via a USB port; although maybe this then wouldn't allow for Sony's superfast SSD processing approach to work.
