Rumor | Tenuous PlayStation 5 rumor claims the new PS Store UI will allow instant demo game-playing on the PS5 console
A very tenuous rumor about the PlayStation 5 has been posted on Twitter that has excited many expectant fans in regard to its possible veracity. Naturally, it would be wise to have a pinch of salt to hand, as there is no named source for the information and the account itself offers scant additional details.
According to the original poster, the PS5’s updated PS Store user interface would let gamers search through all the titles available and try them instantaneously without any tedious waiting times interfering with the enjoyment. It’s basically streaming (as Sony already offers with PS Now), but it seems to be streaming at an unprecedented level for a console with additional features.
The tweet (see below) continues to detail that no “traditional downloading” would be necessary, giving PS5 gamers the opportunity to thoroughly test a game and decide if they want to make a full purchase or not. If a purchase is made, then a complete download of the title can be made afterwards.
Such a utility for the PS5 would likely be affected by network connection speeds and SSD storage capacities, and without any sources listed the claim itself is spurious. However, many PlayStation fans are expecting a considerable reworking of the current user interface for the next-gen console, so there is always the possibility this instant demo game-playing feature could end up being a welcome reality.
