PlayStation 5 news: Lighter OS, DualSense's Create button is like Nvidia's ShadowPlay, and Crash Bandicoot is coming to the PS5
Many PlayStation 5 fans are hoping for an overhaul of the operating system and user interface utilized by the current-generation console. While there have been attempts at creating concept designs for the UI and a couple of supposed leaks, little is actually known about the OS for the PS5. However, according to Tidux, the “PS5 OS reservation is actually smaller than PS4. This is due to 2 IO coprocessors and on chip RAM.” This would free up the next-gen console’s SSD even more for the important duty of game loading.
The same tipster has been sharing details about the DualSense’s Create button, which according to Tidux operates in a similar manner to Nvidia’s ShadowPlay application. Apparently, PS5 gamers will be able to edit their gameplay in real time by pressing the Create button. This would instantly bring up an app called “Creation Studio”, allowing users to edit and share a particularly magnificent moment in their gaming history.
As for potential PS5 games, it seems Crash Bandicoot will be making a very welcome appearance on the PS5. According to another rumor, the new Crash Bandicoot game has been in development for over three years, and Activision will soon start the marketing campaign for the title featuring the mutated marsupial. It has been speculated that the game could end up being a timed exclusive for the upcoming next-generation console.
