See How PS5 Loading Times Stack Up Against PC, PS4, Xbox One X On Devil May Cry 5

See how the PS5 loading times on Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition stack up against the PC, PS4 and Xbox One X versions of the game.

Would be nice to see the pc ssd specs. Also series x inclusion would have made it more interesting.

SinisterKieran1355d ago

Don’t know why people are disliking this as it’s exactly what I thought. These times mean nothing until we know more about the pc and how good series x can load

SullysCigar1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

To me, it means it's far superior to what we currently have. That's enough for me. While I'd be interested to know how it compares to Series S and X, I'm just pleased to see how much better it is than my PS4 and it makes me even more excited to get my PS5.

PS5 - 2 seconds
PS4 - 22 seconds

That's just beautiful

It wasn’t tested properly, loading Different levels. Not really super helpful be I appreciate the effort.

They all should be under 5 seconds so is it really a big deal?

Gunstar751354d ago

Why does it mean nothing. Or is this a fanwars point?

Should also be loading the same area and not different ones. And at the same point in the game and not possible replay throughs that could be loading more into the area after originally finishing it.

Edit: And, sadly, none of this will stop the 1m+ of screens I have to wait through just to get to a point where I can play a game. I'm looking especially at you Ubisoft and all your unnecessary more than once messages.


whenever MS allows people to test next gen games on the series x...

chiefJohn1171355d ago

This isn't a next Gen game tho lol

“This isn't a next Gen game tho lol”

I thought it was. It’s a ps5 port I think.

borntodie0071355d ago

Would it matter? Even if it's using NVME 4.0. speeds would be way off from the ps5. ps5 uses direct storage that allows the nvme to talk directly to the gpu. PC doesn't do that. i don't event know if the 3000 series even support that. even if it did, the developer would need to add that feature that would be used by 0.01% of players. so maybe it wouldn't be worth it to do so.

warriorcase1355d ago

Exactly. Predominantly a PC player myself, the fanboyism needs to take a rest with people. To many people think gen 4 m.2 means fast game speeds. I mean a simple youtube search shows the difference from top tier ssd vs m.2 is a difference of maybe a few seconds.

These faster game times are coming to PC but at a later date. Nvidia are working on their new Nvidia io to release later:

Microsoft are also working on bringing direct storage solutions to windows currently but with no set date.

I've 2xGen3 Raid0s, benchmark at 6500MS/s but I can tell you no matter how much brute force bandwidth you throw at a PC, it still tries to load everything into RAM first. Unless PC games can do exactly that, do DMA into VRAM directly (with or without compression), the PS5 will be king in that regards for a long time.
Its not that much of a difference between the NVMes and an SSD on my PC, tbh. Unfortunately. Wonder if PC games will ever make use of DMA into VRAM at all. Velocity engine should theoretically work on the PC as well. I still think it will not beat a purpose build 0 bottle neck interface like the PS5. Not even with Gen4 raid0. It sure is nice, though.

"A little quick comparison of the loading times between PS5, PS4, Xbox One X and PC. PS5 footage taken from preview of DMC5SE. time to load a mission takes approximatively 2 to 5 seconds depending on the level, which is really impressive and a game changer compared to this last generation of consoles. PC footage is said to use a SSD."

Ahh the video description so this is what N4G classes as a comparison now, a bunch of slapped together videos. Staged footage of a newer version of DMC5 for PS5 and 3 other videos just pulled from youtube.

I think we will see soon, at least, a BC games loading comparison ( like RDR 2 or MH : World ) since the outlets received PS5 recently

Smclaren19851355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

The Xbox series x is around the 13 sec on average sometimes less during quick resume. It can take slightly longer on cold boot. There is tones of comparisons on YouTube separately for each console The ps5 is almost instant when you are jumping from game to game. Most games are taking around 2-4 sec cold boot to start which is actually 100 times the speed of ps4 Most of these games haven’t been tweaked to take advantage of the new ssd system Sony has created it’s just the raw power of the ssd but they’ve been consistently faster than anything else on any platform

Sophisticated_Chap1355d ago

It would also be nice to know what the PC equivalent game settings are that the PS5 is running the game at, particularly with regards to textures.

a useless comparison without PC SSD information. they could be using an SSD from 3 years ago...
they got SSDs on PC that hit 7.4 gbs. https://www.dsogaming.com/n...

badz1491355d ago

yeah because more than 50% PC gamer will have that SSD

Father__Merrin1355d ago

its only ever a minority that buy high end parts like that then they pretend on here as if thats the standard if you build a pc, no game will be built ground up on ssd for a pc. this gen pc is beat in this area and as time goes on and developers make games that can only be done on fast ssd like cerny said you will see game design differences

that's not the point here. Just be clear with what hardware is being tested.

@badz149 but no one even have a ps5, there already more ppl that have that ssd on PC thn there are ppl with ps5 atm.

Pricey1355d ago (Edited 1355d ago )

Ha cute. Well when this is revisited in a few weeks time there will be more PS5 gamers capable of loading this game in 2 seconds than there will be PC gamers. Watch this space ...

outsider16241355d ago

There are even more people still using an hdd. What can you do?
