The two keywords for PlayStation going forward are "immersive" and "seamless," Sony said. Concerning the hardware inside the console, Sony said the PlayStation 5 will offer an "immersive experience created by dramatically increased graphics rendering speeds." This will be made possible through the "employment of further improved computational power and a customized ultra-fast, broadband SSD," Sony said.
Whichever way you look at it, the overall message is that the PlayStation 5 will come with experiences that will "greatly exceed" what is currently possible with the PS4 and the PS4 Pro. Sony have added that people can expect "completely transformative and immersive gaming experiences" on the PS5.
PlayStation system architect Mark Cerny pointed out that the fast travel loading screen in Spider-Man on PS4 took roughly 15 seconds on a PS4 Pro, but less than one second on a dev kit for the PS5. To see the speeds in action, Takashi Mochizuki from the Wall Street Journal Report shared a video on Twitter showing the difference in loading times between a PS4 Pro and a PS5.
