Leaked PlayStation 5 video reveals ultrarapid two-second transition time from the PS5 UI to Spider-Man: Miles Morales game save
A seemingly embargo-breaking video of the PlayStation 5 console has been making the rounds on social media, and even though Sony has likely been hard at work getting the video taken down, it’s still been entertaining gamers around the world. The clip starts with a look at the PS5 UI while the user browses through a selection of games before choosing to play Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It’s here where the SSD and I/O unit show their racing chops.
It takes roughly just two seconds to go from the PS5 user interface to the Spider-Man: Miles Morales save game screen, and it appears to be just another eight seconds or so before the game is fully loaded. This means it takes about 10 seconds to go from the UI into gameplay. Of course, many were expecting the PS5 to be fast, with Mark Cerny emphasizing the potential of the SSD and the custom I/O unit in his deep dive presentation, but seeing it in action is a whole new ball game.
The PS5 can also rely on applications from RAD Game Tools in the forms of Oodle Kraken and Oodle Texture to hit those incredibly high bandwidth rates that can potentially reach 22 GB/s. Of course, it’s not just UI-to-game loading times that will benefit from these particular components, as has already been proven in a PS5/PS4 Pro comparison that also featured everyone’s favorite web-slinging hero.
Unsurprisingly, comments on the leaked PS5 UI video have been overwhelmingly positive, with gamers eager to have the chance to get to grips with Spider-Man: Miles Morales while barely having the time to take a sip of water or scratch an itch. Taking just two seconds to make the transition from the user interface to the save game screen should please even the most demanding of gamers expecting the best performance out of the next-gen console from Sony.
