It's still kinda lame what they do. Holding back progress on purpose and then trying to wow people with old tech and mediocrity.

Actually i haven't seen a game that utilized this tech, even on PC games where i mostly playing on using SSD PCi NVMe. It's just SSD hasn't been a standard for game developer due to the mostly PC gamer are still booting up from old mechanical HDD. 

Just because the majority of people choose to not use old tech doesn't make it newer. What Sony has here is most likely just a small NVME SSD cache via PCIe. Something that has existed on gaming PCs and laptops via m2 SSDs for a while. Except that proper gaming PCs don't just have a cache but have actually all data on SSD.

I just find it a little bit insulting that they have punished players with long loading times for 2 generations even though appropriate tech was available and now try to sell it as something amazing. They want to say "Look at this cool new tech!", but what they're really saying is "Look, this old tech is finally cheap enough for us!"
