Whether or not you have sufficient storage space on your PS5 for all the games you want to play might be a problem that you’ll have to contend with for a while after launch, but as far as downloading games is concerned, it seems the PS5 is significantly faster than the PS4- which is a relief, since the latter is notoriously slow on that front.

US Gamer points out in its PS5 review that the console’s game downloading speeds are much faster than the PS4. The reviewer was able to download  Disgaea 5 (6.58 GB) on the PS5 in less than 2 minutes, as opposed to nearly 11 minutes on a PS4 Pro. Similarly, Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise (36.6 GB) downloaded in 7 minutes on PS5, as opposed to over 58 minutes on PS4 Pro.

Of course, how quickly you’re able to download games will vary depending on your internet connection and download speeds. But while you might not be seeing those exact same download times, you will be seeing significantly faster downloads as compared to what the PS4 offers.

PS5’s lead system architect Mark Cerny has previously also talked about how the console’s SSD will help reduce patch install times significantly. Read more on that through here.
