The upcoming PlayStation 5 from Sony has good news for you. The manufacturer is looking to reduce the loading times to a considerable extent. If the reports are to be believed, the loading times on your Sony PlayStation 5 will totally stand eliminated, thus enhancing your gaming experience. For a die-hard PS gamer, any news that PlayStation 5 is to eliminate loading time should indeed be an excitement.
Sony has applied for a patent, and the contents of the patent application indicate a possibility of such an eventuality. Sony is looking ahead to split the game environments into segments, and this is believed to reduce and eliminate the loading times altogether. The segmented environments can be helpful in terms of faster and smoother transitions.
The technology lying behind this transition is simple to understand. While you are playing one of the segments of the game, the next segment is being worked upon, so that by the time you finish the current segment, you are on to the next one. Without waiting for the loading screen to get over!
A copy of the synopsis says this about the new patent –
“A system and method are disclosed for dynamically loading game software for smooth gameplay. A load boundary associated with a game environment is identified. A position of a character in the game environment is then monitored. Instructions corresponding to a next game environment are loaded into memory when the character crosses the load boundary, such that gameplay is not interrupted.”
Moreover, the new PlayStation 5 will also feature a new SSD that should be another factor to aid in the transition with ease and simplicity. It has been stated that the upcoming PlayStation variant will come with a customized PlayStation SSD.
Sony wants the PlayStation experience to be both immersive and seamless. This is one of the prime reasons for planning a few ventures with a view to make it work with enhanced power and lack of any loading times or loading screens.
Reports from the insider sources have revealed that the loading times on the PlayStation 5 are expected to be 19 times faster than those on the PlayStation 4.
