Quick resume you can switch from one game to another in about 6 seconds and resume at the exact place you left off.

 

No matter how quickly a game boots from cold you're still sitting through those engine screens at the beginning and clicking through the title screens and selecting a save game and loading the save game. The loading of each individual element might be quick but you're not going to be back at the exact point you left off in 6 seconds just by virtue of all the stuff you're mandated to go through when you cold boot a game.

 

There were rumblings Sony had built something interesting into their UI where you could set up deep links from the dashboard directly to certain elements of each game so I guess we'll see if that was indeed true or not. Would certainly mitigate the lack of quick resume if you could just jump straight from the dashboard to, say, the lobby screen of a multiplayer game via a link you'd set up.

Deep links as you call it is exactly what I’ve been screaming for since the Xbox 360 days.

I wish someone would just make it happen.

Every game should be as easy to get into as Rocket League.

It would be useful for me to pause playing one game and load straight back to training mode in Street Fighter with the settings as I left them. 

SF5 takes aaaaages to actually get to play. Is it supposed to "apply the latest patch" every single time you get to the title screen?

Its a ludicrous length of time. Takes 2 minutes and 6 seconds just to get to the main menu. You can get into a match sooner than that in both Tekken 7 and Mortal Kobat 11.

 

I hope the Street Fighter 6 delay and extended SF5 DLC support mean a PS5 patch too but we never did get a PS4 Pro patch so I I'm prepared for nothing more than BC "boost" mode.

I'm concerned about netflix not being on the PS5 now after @Harrisown posting that up above.


The PS5 media remote has a dedicated Netflix button so you are probably going to be ok. Still not 100% guaranteed mind you.

Sorry, bit of a niche and boring set of questions, but...

 

Has anyone seen anywhere a) if we get an HDMI 2.1 cable in the PS5 box, and b) how long it is?

 

Appreciate this sort of sage knowledge will appeal to few people, but as I've got my TV wall mounted with a cable trucking sunk into the wall, the cable has a minimum distance to travel just to get to my TV unit before you even think about where in the cabinet it goes and I want to make sure I have something long enough here on launch day!

In case anyone is interested... :blah:

I tracked back and found the box content leak on Twitter from early September and that says "HDMI Cable" is in the box but gives no details.

The PS4 cable was 2m apparently (not long enough) so I'm going to assume the same and order a longer one over Prime Day to be sure.

I have a similar issue and I know the supplied cable just won’t be long enough. It was hard enough finding hdmi cables that worked with 4k on PS4 Pro and OneX, let alone this lot.

 

In the end I stumped up for two of these to go alongside my other cables for next-gen. Fingers crossed.

If this is the one you need for HDR then the Pro came with one so I would be shocked if the PS5 doesn't seeing as 4k/HDR seems to be a big selling point.

Edit: Oh sorry I should have googled first I think it's 2.0 with the Pro, shouldn't try doing 3 things at once!

Quick resume works even from the power being off entirely. It seems pretty awesome 

 

It dumps the game state out of memory onto the SSD and then reloads it into memory, it's a pretty easy feature to copy, not sure i'd want so much of my disk space used up with quick resume unless it's a feature you can turn on/off.

Bloody hell. I bought three HDMI 8K ones for that price, at that length, at the weekend, based on some comments on resetera. One is certainly managing 4k60 fine. Be interesting to find out if it does 4k120.

Only 5 days since the teardown, 2 days since the BC details... I'm hungry for more... I wonder if they'll announce some new games this week. Not sure we are going to get a proper hands on till much closer to launch.

Whilst it a cool option, given the flat out speed of the PS5s SSD and the DRAM cache + deep linking we could end up with all the benefits of quick resume without the loss of storage space. We can but dream, I'd imagine it will end up being a feature that Devs have to implement properly so it could be a crapshoot. Unless Sony make deeplinking a TRC. They did with live tiles which eventually disappeared from the os.

The 970 isnt quick enough, the 980 pro probably is

 

 
 
 

The 970 can be used if you want to run PlayStation 4 games off it. The 980 Pro and WD Black PCIE 4.0 will likely be the first PS5 endorsed drives but only Sony knows right now.

But why would you bother with that? Just get a big drive that can do both, less messing about.

Sony appears to have brought the release date of its various PlayStation 5 accessories forward in the UK, allowing eager players to get their hands on the hardware from November 12.

 

Just checked my Amazon Pre-Order for the Charging Station and it still has the 19th.

I ordered an extra controller from Smyths Games but can't see my order.

They're going to show that guy putting it all back together once he's worked out how to without having bits left over.
