Watch the PS5 Crush the PS4 in Spider-Man Load Time Demo

Zipping around New York is going to get a whole lot faster.

Remember Sony's claims about faster load times for the PlayStation 5? A video from Sony's 2019 corporate strategy meeting shows a comparison between a PlayStation 4 Pro and a "next-gen" PlayStation's load times in Marvel's Spider-Man, and the difference is pretty impressive.

Posted by the Wall Street Journal's Takashi Mochizuki, the video shows an eight-second load time on the Pro, while the next generation of PlayStation loads in less than a second. The video goes on to show how much faster the PS5 can zip through the city, breezing through areas where the PS4 Pro stutters at higher speeds.

This lines up with what Mark Cerny told Wired about the next generation of PlayStation. Lead system architect for the PS4 and for the next PlayStation as well, Wired's report says the console will be based on the third-generation AMD Ryzen line of CPUs, and the GPU will support ray tracing. Cerny told Wired he started talking to developers abotu what they'd want from a new PlayStation in late 2015, and faster load times were a common answer.

More information from the presentation indicates Sony's commitment to streaming in the next generation, as well as a focus on "choice" in where games can be played and purchased. Several slides from the presentation indicate a focus on not just physical game sales, but downloading and streaming as well.
