More than a 70% reduction. That’s amazing!

The framerate and screen tearing is awful on the PS5 version in performance mode. I suggest going into the dev console by pressing L1+R1+X and typing in vsync. Then repeat and type in targetframerate 60. Then it will be smooth as butter.

PlayStation 5 has lived up to Mark Cerny's claims on every front arguably exceeded them.

Under promise over deliver. That's how you do business.

Yep there was a comment on Twitter ages ago I forget who it's from now but someone important and they said basically certainly has 'underplayed' everything was the words he used

and it's actually way more powerful thanks to the way the memory works .

And he left loads of bits out of that deep dive.

Your comment reminded me of this

The PS5's Kraken compression definitely seems a good choice for inclusion.

Thanks. Are there Dual Sense features?

“Thanks. Are there Dual Sense features?”

That’s what I used.

I really like that they are able to make the file sizes smaller cause game files are way too big nowadays.

Maybe Sony should also provide some storage for its console?

Orbilator31d ago

Maybe you should go back to your Xbox and just leave us alone here

OptimusDK31d ago

Maybe you should stick to the topic

Huh? There's internal storage and you can expand it externally.

OptimusDK31d ago

But not PLAY ps5 games From external.

The internal expansion isn't usable yet. You can put in an NVMe drive but it wont do anything.

That's kinda the point no? And then eventually both because having more storage is nice but having that with 70% compression is amazing.

Remember that, from April, it is possible to play and storage from external units... but my option will be to substitute internal NVME for a faster, standard 4TB unit in not more than 18 months... if Chia crypto permits it, of course. I think PS5 NVME will be part of an older PC after that, so it serves for some more years after the change of home.
Have you thought about this? That, if you substitute your PS5 storage unit, you can use the old one on a PC or laptop... or a new TV set compatible with NVME, so the price of the unit makes a discount when you buy a new one to install on your PS5.

It's a little hard to understand what you're saying but...
-You can only play from an external drive with PS4 games, not PS5
-NVMe drives wont work until PS5 is patched to use them (they don't yet)
-not totally sure if it's what you're saying, but if you're saying you're going to use the stock PS5 drive on your pc when you get a 4TB one, that's impossible, the stock storage is soldered to the motherboard

Would love to use NVMe drives as storage/PS4 play. Moving back and forth from PS5 would be so much quicker than an external HDD/2.5 SSD.

Oodles of noodles in the poodles

This is really great. I hope other studios can achieve something like this. 70% less is crazy.
