The PlayStation 5 is perhaps the most awaited gaming console right now. However, Danny Weinbaum, Director of Eastshade states that the console will not change much. “It won’t change much really. It will allow more draw calls I suppose, i.e. more objects on the screen.”
“It will be an evolution, not a revolution,” said the director, speaking to GamingBolt about the PS5’s Zen 2 CPU.
Danny also said that the PS5’s SSD will reduce load times, but will not have a significant impact on performance. “Many games have everything they need in memory already, so it wouldn’t affect much there, but it will be helpful for open-world titles which require streaming. I’d say it won’t affect performance much. Mostly it will reduce load times,” said Danny.
The director’s claims arrive not long after new details about the PS5 were revealed by Sony CEO Jim Ryan, who mentioned that the company’s main task is to transition the community from the PS4 to the PS5 at a scale and pace “never delivered on before.”
Jim also mentioned that the company is working on some of their own games that ‘make or break’ the PS5’s success. The CEO also stated that Sony is already ‘hearing from developers and publishers [regarding] the ease in which they are able to get code running on PlayStation 5,’ which is better than the developers experience on any other PlayStation platform.
