PlayStation 5 rumour suggests Sony is working with Samsung on this key feature

There’s still over a year to go before Sony finally launches the PlayStation 5 , but rumours about the console are already coming thick and fast.

The latest rumour suggests that Sony is teaming up with Samsung to develop a key feature in the console.

Niko Partners senior analyst, Daniel Ahmad, has reported that the PlayStation 5 could use Samsung SSD to load games faster.

Mr Ahmad’s report is based on recent a Samsung presentation, in which the tech giant revealed that it’s currently working on an Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD, to be used in a console being released in 2020.

While Samsung didn’t explicitly name the PlayStation 5, a slide used during the presentation showed a picture of the PlayStation DualShock controller, indicating the NVMe SSD could be designed for the PS5.

According to Samsung, the new SSD will introduce a ‘new era in game consoles’, with reduced load times.

Sony is yet to confirm or deny the claims, but has previously stated that its new console will greatly reduce loading times.

The rumour comes shortly after Jim Ryan, President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, confirmed the name and rough launch date for the PlayStation 5.

In a blog, he wrote: “Since we originally unveiled our next-generation console in April, we know that there’s been a lot of excitement and interest in hearing more about what the future of games will bring.

“Today I’m proud to share that our next-generation console will be called PlayStation 5, and we’ll be launching in time for Holiday 2020.”
