    The only ps4 game that I played in which loading times had an impact was the Pillars of Eternity port. I can barely notice a 8 second loading screen.

    I can have super fast loading screens on a PS4 or even PS3 as long as I swap their HDD with an SSD yet they try to showcase this as new tech.

    Sony people are acting like grade A scammers trying to showcase features that are irrelevant/redundant/already existant on their products. I could bet people are way more interested in the console being able to run PS3 discs than this.

    8k LMFAO no fucking way in hell. pc can't do it even so ps5 sure in hell won't be able to!! 4k isn't even properly doable yet on ALL the consoles without using rendering and fps reducing tricks SO 8k is at least 10 years away :rofl2:

    That's simply putting an high speed NVMe SSD (like Samsung 970 PRO or EVO). They can reach and soon they'll exceed 3000 MB/s.
    This is nothing new: a lot of PC games installed on NVMe load in almost 1/5 or even 1/10 the time taken by PS4 HDD :


    PS4 users don't sense this until they play PC games. I even hated Street Fighter 5 on PS4 compared to PC because of its looong loading time.

    The 8K comment is just there coz 4K is ssooo PS4 Pro/last years news, and will probably be as much use as the 4K mode on Switch - movie playback at most..
    As for the loading times - well the SSD focus on consoles is welcome. MS will of course follow suit, but yeah let's not get too excited about this showcase difference! Anyone remember that real-time wizard/orc video thingie they showed us running on PS4 hardware? ...Anyone remember the initial PS3 reveal!? :lol:
    It will be a noticeable improvement coming from a PS4 of course though.

    Home menu in 8k 60? Who gives a rats ass about that? Do you even have a 8k TV? Have fun dropping a few thousand $$ just so your stupid home menu runs at 8k/60 lmao

    I'm surprised are 8k TV's "only" a few thousand now? But they are future proofing, nothing wrong with that.

    Too hard to run, I think some of the first (mainstream at least) 120hz tvs will come out this year, so 8k will be a bit (unless 120 becomes standard for some reason)

    Sounds uber-fishy tbh, unless the price range will be 500-600$.

    Lets hope they focus on hardware yields this time. The ps4 is the new Xbox 360 RROD. It's all I get for repairs nowadays. All models.

    Backwards-compatibility is one thing. But with all that PSNow stuff and the PS4 being built around streaming... where's the forwards-compatibility? Why is nobody talking about that? I mean, put those PS5 games on PSNow from the start. It won't be the real deal, but people could play those and see what to expect from buying a PS5 (which might even incentivize getting one).

    Maybe just maybe they pulled that next generation time from their ass and when the ps5 is released it will be from 8 secs down to 4 secs but I could be wrong.

    Ya'll do know they may be reffering to ray tracing for sound and not graphics at all right?

    iirc they have been testing with ps4 games and ps5 games are likely to use higher quality assets so that is likely the case for any game made more so with the ps5 in mind.
