The demo give to Wired with the PS5 devkit included a load test with Sony’s PS4 exclusive Spider-man. An average load time of 15 seconds was brought down to 0.8 seconds with help of an SSD streamlined to handle load times.

And then Official Playstation Magazine snagged a quote from s Sony spokesperson who said this: “An ultra-high-speed SSD is the key to our next generation. Our vision is to make loading screens a thing of the past, enabling creators to build new and unique gameplay experiences.”

This is great news for gamers, since games are only getting bigger and prettier in size, and load times that come along with it severely hamper the overall experience. We are hoping to hear more about the PS5 soon, and eager to see what next games look like on the console.
