To promote Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5 console, developers who are hard at work on games for the device were asked to share their thoughts on its advanced capabilities. The result is a lengthy blog post and a video, which features quotes from the aforementioned creators.
“Beyond near-instant loading and fast-travel, the SSD and its speed allow us to more quickly load and display more detailed assets. This should lead to the city looking better than ever, and this is just the beginning for our team unlocking those possibilities. It’s a fundamental change that we can’t wait to take more advantage of in the years to come.”— Brian Horton // Creative Director, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
“3D Audio is exciting because it can create a more convincing and accurate soundscape for players, and a stronger sense of place.… in a fast-paced action game with lots of verticality like Returnal, it can also help with the player’s situational awareness, and make it more intuitive for players to pinpoint the locations of nearby enemies or incoming projectiles in the heat of combat.”— Harry Krueger // Game Director, Returnal
Stay tuned for PlayStation 5 release information.
