Instantaneous game swapping won’t be a thing on the PS5.
Microsoft have been talking about the Xbox Series X and Series S’ Quick Resume feature for a while, which will allow users to suspend multiple games at the same time and quickly swap between them. That might not be a crucial next-gen feature, but it’s going to be a huge boon in the ease of use department.
Many have been wondering if the PS5 will have something similar, especially since the console’s UI reveal video seemingly suggested that it might. However, it doesn’t seem like that will be the case. As confirmed by GameSpot, the PS5 does not have the ability to suspend multiple games and swap between them like the Xbox consoles are going to have.
On the Xbox front, Quick Resume will be even more effective on backward compatible games, while it’s been confirmed that suspended software for Quick Resume will be retained even if the console is unplugged.
