Next generation home consoles are within our sights now, and with both Sony and Microsoft having revealed the partial spec list for their respective consoles, there’s been plenty of discussion in the industry about what they will bring to the table. One thing that both the PS5 and the Xbox Scarlett are boasting is a solid state drive – or an SSD – and it’s something that’s got a lot of developers very excited.

Add another name to that ever-increasing list of developers. Tim Ash of BoxFrog Games, developers of the fast-paced flight arcade title Lost Wing, recently spoke with GamingBolt. After speaking about his game for a while, we moved on to other topics, and when asked about the SSD being included in the PS5, Ash gave a very positive answer, suggesting that it’s a bigger deal than most people realize.

Lost Wing has a lot of respawning (well, when I play it does…), and hence reloading,” said, Ash. “Thankfully we’re very prompt on load times after the initial load, but the advent of having high performance SSDs on PS5 is a bigger deal for general performance and immersion than I think a lot of people realise.”

In the same interview, Ash also spoke to us about other hardware elements of next gen consoles, like the PS5’s Zen 2 CPU- read more on that through here.

BoxFrog Games’ Lost Wing is currently in early access on Steam, and is scheduled for a full launch for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch soon.
