  • Exception Dev: PS5 and Xbox Scarlett’s SSDs Will Have ‘Biggest Impact on Open World Titles’

    Sony and Microsoft when discussing their next generation consoles, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett, focused on the improved load times as both consoles will come with a solid state drive (SSD). 

    Traxmaster Software's Will Traxler speaking with GamingBolt in an interview said the SSD will have a big impact on open world games. 

    "I think we’re going to see SSDs have the biggest impact on open world titles that constantly stream textures and models into a scene," said Teaxler.

    "Level-based games like Exception may see less of a benefit from SSDs, since most of the assets are loaded up-front and the load times are already brief. I’m sure that developers will come up with some great new uses for SSDs once these become standard in consoles. I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes."
