Edit: Or to be more accurate 1TB NVMe drive probably 4+ GB/s speed.

Have to hope this part actually holds water and helps reduce game sizes: "If you look at a game like Marvel's Spider-Man," Cerny says, "there are some pieces of data duplicated 400 times on the hard drive." The SSD sweeps away the need for all that duping—so not only is its raw read speed dramatically faster than a hard drive, but it saves crucial space."

Because 1TB on my PS4 Pro already isn't cutting it with some games taking up 100gb+. But even if the SSD can significantly reduce game sizes it would be up to the developers to actually do it.

I dont get it if games would be smaller why use 100gb discs?

To give more option to developer

Some current gen systems, or future systems, that the game may be developed for/ported to, may not have the capability to read data this way. So it could potentially be easier to just make the games read the old fashioned way.

There may also be games that make use of this reading technique, while still requiring a lot of space for high resolution textures, etc.

Im going to say, SSD will not make games smaller but will make em faster

Getting excited for something more than a year away and with no games confirmed for it yet. Damnit!

Interperting the meaning of size wrong.  ps5 going to use standard 4k bluray disks.  4k bluray disks max out at 100gb (triple layor).  therefore ps5 support disks up to 100gb.  This will also add 4k bluray movie support.

It lets them play Ultra HD disks.  

Additionally, games don't necessarily have to be smaller, they just will have less redundancy on the drive.  

Combining the tendency for games to get larger with having less redundancy might mean that instead of having 100GB installs, we have 85 GB installs.  It's still smaller than it would have been, but still too large for one disk.

"ray-tracing acceleration in the GPU hardware" =/= Hardware-Level ray tracing.

I'm a little confused on what the distinction between the two would be.

I'm assuming the distinction is that "ray-tracing acceleration" could be that the ray-tracing could be a mix of software/hardware.  Or at the very least, it's more ambiguous than the latter.  



As anyone mentionned about the PS5 controller having a little hole in it ?

BTW, I gotta be honest, this has to be the least surprising announcement due to speculations and predictions earlier this year. Also, the advanced haptik feedback is litteraly HD Rumble so I wonder how actually different it might feel in the end ?
Although, the trigger buttons having some kind of resistance to them when doing certain tasks (if implemented) is probably the nicest addition of them all ^^
