How PS5's SSD and audio technology will enhance the future of gaming”

Harry Krueger and Ari Arnbjörnsson, game director and lead programmer respectively on the highly anticipated Returnal, have heaped praise on the PS5 SSD and Tempest 3D Audio technology.

While these are fairly expected answers, other developers pointed out less obvious benefits to their games. Spider-Man: Miles Morales director Brian Horton discussed near-instant load times, fast travel, and the ability to "quickly load and display more detailed assets".

"As developers [of "Demon's Souls"], we are already changing the way we think about the SSD. We see it not just as storage but also memory, utilizing the speed of the SSD to load data at blistering speeds, bringing you straight back into the action to avenge your many deaths", said SIE Japan Studio creative director Gavin Moore. In addition, the solid-state drive made it possible to draw objects and their smallest details much faster: "Thanks to this, the city in the game looks great than ever, given the fact that we are just exploring new opportunities".

"The SSD is a gamechanger, I think as this generation matures we will see some unbelievable innovation in streaming and open-world game design".

Audio is a key feature to really push the next-gen experience with PS5.

"It's nearly as if 3D Audiotech was made specifically with horror games in mind", added Resident Evil Village executive producer, Jun Takeuchi. "It nearly feels like AudioTech 3D technology has been engineered specially for horror games. - underlined, also highlighting the accessibility of technology - In the past, to get equally sound space, players had to invest a lot of time and money. Now, just put on a pair of headphones for a full 3D audio experience".
