Sony Shows Off PS5 Next-Gen Video With Impressive Load Times, Other Improvements

by Liana Ruppert

Sony detailed what was on the way for the next generation of PlayStation earlier this year and now the mega-company is taking that hype for what’s next even further with a brand new video showcasing what the ‘PlayStation 5’ will be able to do. During a recent Investors Relations Day held in Japan this week, Sony talked more about the capabilities of the new generation with a brand new video showcasing insanely fast load times and more.

In addition to the inside look at how Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man runs with zero loading screens, Sony also confirmed the return of PlayStation Now and their focus on their streaming service. Additionally, the video gives fans a look at the GPU and CPU updates, including ray tracing and 3D audio. 

The next generation is no doubt impressive, but all of the features have many PlayStation fans worried about a potential price point. The most common numbers being thrown out are 600 and 500 dollars, though Sony assures fans that the price point given, though not yet announced, will be one hundred percent “earned.”

This is the first time the general public outside of devs have been given a look at what’s next, which comes at the perfect time with E3 next month and Sony’s decision to sit the showcase out this year.
