Sony Shows Off Seamless Load Times
Sony may not be at E3 2019 to show off their next-gen console, but they are revealing it in their own way. The latest of which is a live demonstration during their latest investor relations strategy meeting on Tuesday. Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki was there and able to capture part of the demonstration on video:

It seems that one of Sony’s big slogan push with their next-gen PlayStation is “no loading times”, and that is exactly what the demo shows. What took the PS4 Pro hardware 8.10 seconds to load, the next-gen PlayStation hardware only took 0.83 seconds to do the same task. The next demonstration also shows speeding up through a busy open world with no slow-downs.
What Can We Expect from the Next-Gen PlayStation?
Aside from the improved CPU and GPU, the load times will be faster thanks to the use of Solid State Drives (SSD). Furthermore, Sony says that the next-gen hardware will have Ray Tracing and 8K resolution support. For now, they are keeping quiet in regards to launch dates, pricing or games.
