Sony Ninjas took down the original tweet but some people upload it again.

Is kinda crazy that ps5 will not need to have loading screens, i will miss them but i guess its more time to play and less time waiting😆

Quite impressive. Can't wait to see the comparisons with other games.



So we have gone back to the era of cartridge games load times. aka none at all. I think that is why I am not jumping up and down over this. I see this daily playing retro games that I am used to it lol. Yes itt is impressive tech but at the same time it took us 30 years to advance to the point where we were 30 years ago lol

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Not sure if anyone here follows MooreLasDead, but he is gona have a podcast next week with some big Third party Dev. He said he could not say who it is yet to stay tuned. But He claimed that he was told by devs that its not that load times are shorter on the ps5, but that the concept of loading is completely gone for the ps5. Just like back in the days of cartridges. Im intrigued.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

That's awesome. They didn't even waste any time there with the usual business of intro logos. Or is that just quick resume, from the game already running in the background? In any case, the less loading times to sit through next gen, the better.

Be interesting to see AC Odysseys load times - currently playing on my PS4 Pro and it takes ages to start the game and then you have another wait for the save games.

this is a "cold boot" into spiderman (not a quick resume).
You can tell by the fact that it starts up to the start screen, before he loads a save game.

Cold boot of a spiderman here takes ~8 sec.
The save game load time is around ~2sec, from the menu before hes inside the game.

Quick resume, would probably be even faster than the "load save data" option (that took 2sec).
Basically imagine a 1sec, quick resume for a game (there was a exsample of this on resetera or neogaf (i forget which)), its basically instant.

Nice. Surprising to see a developer forgo splashing their logos, title cards, etc on screen before sending you into the menu, but man would it be lovely if we saw more of that. I mean hell, we already paid for the game anyway boys....we know who made it....just let us play lol.

Where we were 30 years ago had cartridges with less than 1MB of storage...

That was actually a question I had when we first learned about this.
Would they skip all the logo screens that usually pop up when you boot up a game? If not, then that could get in the way of loading up the games fast.
And if they do, where do all those logos go instead?

Hard to tell here if this was some sort of resume feature, but it does appear to go to the title screen, and then to the Load file menu.

Recently I've been thinking about how much time we spend looking at load screens.
Downloading and installing games is a bit different, because I can do other tasks while that occurs. But for load screens, they're usually not long enough for me to do something else in the meantime.

If we add them up over all these years, I don't even want to think about how much time I've wasted staring at loading screens. Or riding a long elevator ride, or passing through a long corridor because the game is hiding a loading screen.
