Not worth keeping as a back up Blu-ray player?

If you have an external hard drive, you could always keep any game you actually plan on playing on your PS5 and just transfer it. At least as far as I know. That's what I plan on doing whenever I end up getting a PS5, which is still likely a year or more after launch for me.

I get from PS4 Pro,

Better WiFi on PS4 (10ms more from Xbox)
Better Audio on PS4 (6db higher level)

than Xbox One X.

On mine I also get higher speeds but because I use SSD.

So if Resolution & FPS are the same on PS5 & SX, I値l probably skip most SX titles & just only buy exclusives.

I think the USB drive has to be 3.2.

I currently have two USB 3.0 drives.

I use my PS3 for my blu-ray player . Its still going strong with no issues after 10.5 years. Worst case if I ever need a back up they can be had for $50.

I知 going to keep them installed and see if its just plug and play when PS5 is out but I expect to need to redownload and reinstall everything.

I only buy physical disks for gaming as you can sell on the games when you've completed it. 4k 100gb disks is great.

PS5 Operating System To Feature 選nteractive Interfaces Suggests New Patent


http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20200086217.pdf


This backs up previous comments from Mark Cerny, the lead PS5 architect, during an interview with Wired last year. It sounds like Sony is keen to blur the line between the user痴 game and the console operating system by implementing aspects of a game痴 user interface into the PS5痴 menu, which sounds like a logical step for next-gen.

Quote:
We don稚 want the player to have to boot the game, see what痴 up, boot the game, see what痴 up. Multiplayer game servers will provide the console with the set of joinable activities in real time.
Quote:
Single player games will provide information like what missions you could do and what rewards you might receive for completing them and all of those choices will be visible in the UI. As a player you just jump right into whatever you like.

I didn't realize that, or just didn't bother reading. That sucks since I doubt any of us has one, although I suppose maybe some companies could come out with adapters you could just plug the USB plug into.

I thought USB 3.2 is backwards compatible with all existing products.

Boot time from console start up could be crazy.

A fully powered off system could be ready for input demand a second or two from power on button/system press. Then if you already have a game in mind you want to play, another button press will take you there within a few seconds.

Instead of you waiting for the System to turn on & run games, next gen looks like it値l be opposite. The System will be waiting on you. Could be a surreal experience.

It's one of the reasons Cerney even had to mention in the GDC presentation about "slowing down" the speed at which gamers can get into a game or loading so it doesn't feel too jarring.

To me, i love the idea of extremely quick load times and instantly having assets stream in far, far ahead to keep draw distances as amazing as possible but i do hope that the biggest help of the NVMe in the PS5 helps to nail higher FPS too.

This next gen coming will be a weird one to compare because Sony is fundamentally trying to change their game design philosophy whilst MS remain attached to the current way and as such have stuck their feet in with a higher spec as a result.

I will believe it when I see it. We were told the PS4 would have very small loading times and the interface would be silky smooth. They were wrong.
