Game developers are excited about the potential of next-generation console hardware, and as we get closer to seeing the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 become a reality, devs are giving us more detail about what those upgrades actually mean.
In an interview with Wccftech, game director Stuart Tilley of Firesprite, the studio behind horror game The Persistence, talked about what the SSD technology–and its faster load times–means for games developed on next-gen consoles.
“The SSD is going to be massive to allow us to create larger worlds that load faster, to move quicker within them. It opens up possibilities for us,” Tilley said. “The new positional sound stuff is great for like, for games, being able to like play sound effects that feel like they’re around you while you’re on the couch, it’s gonna make another big improvement.”
