New footage has emerged demonstrating the loading times of Sony’s upcoming PlayStation console.
The Wall Street Journal technology reporter Takashi Mochizuki posted a video on Twitter showing off the new console’s loading times in Marvel’s Spider-Man. While the PlayStation 4 Pro takes 8.1 seconds to load an area, the next generation console takes 0.83 seconds.
The video also demonstrates the speed at which the upcoming console loads the game world in Marvel’s Spider-Man; while the PS4 Pro stutters while loading in the buildings of the open world, the next generation console speeds through the world without any noticeable lag.
Check out the full video below.
Sony confirmed the first details of its upcoming console last month, revealing that it will be backwards compatible and feature much more advanced technology than the PS4. OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira felt that the beefy specifications may not be entirely necessary for the console.
A sequel to Marvel’s Spider-Man may be in the works, if recent job advertisements at Insomniac Games are any indication.
