With a new generation always comes new technology. Of course that goes into the improved graphics that are just getting better and better. But there’s always other things, too. For the upcoming generation of the PS5 and the Next Xbox, currently dubbed Scarlett. There’s a lot of buzz about the SSD HDDs both systems are said to have. Now another developer, Crytek, has thrown in to say it’s going to be a big deal.

In an interview with Wccftech, Crytek said the SSDs will be the big game changer with the next generation. It will crush down on loadtimes, and thanks to that will help to open up a lot of possibilities for game design that was present before because of that.

“If visual quality will most likely continue to increase in the same large steps as is expected with any new generation of consoles, the real game changer will certainly be the new fast storage that has been promised. Apart from the obvious advantage of crushing loading times, it will open up quite a lot of possibilities for games to be designed for it with regards to streaming. That’s also a front on which game engines will need to evolve
quite drastically, but it’s definitely exciting.”

They aren’t the only ones to have said similar things. They join a growing list of developers who have expressed excitement about the SSDs and the fast technology being promised. Several have said it’s the most exciting thing they have in mind on their end for the new consoles. Of course, everyone is in the honeymoon period of new technology, only time will tell if the walk will match the talk. We’ll just have to wait and see.
