One of the main features of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S are their SSD storage drives that allow them to impressively shorten game load times. However, SSDs not only improve this aspect, but also take up less space on consoles thanks to the compression and decompression capacity of the game. The PlayStation 5 offers a higher compression factor. So far little has been said about the benefits the SSD offers in this regard, and recently Insomniac Games mentioned how much it benefits Marvel Spider-Man compression force.
Through Twitter, Mike Fitzgerald, chief technical officer of Insomniac Games is currently working at Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Y Ratchet & Clank: Rift apart, talked about how Marvel Spider-Man Remastered Y Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales They take advantage of the speed of the PlayStation 5 SSD to reduce the size of each installation.

Marvel Spider-Man is less difficult for the PlayStation 5
According to the director, the installation weight of both titles is about 25% less compared to the PlayStation 4 version. If you think that’s not enough, you should consider that the PlayStation 5 versions are larger. from those on the PlayStation 4 before, as they include models with higher resolution, textures and better sound.
As a result, players may worry less about losing space on the SSD, in addition to faster downloads. That’s exactly what Mark Cerny was talking about at the first conference dedicated to the PlayStation 5, and Fitzgerald took the opportunity to highlight that.
As you may recall, the PlayStation 5 not only features a high-speed SSD, but also includes Kraken compression and decompression technology, thanks to Oodle Textures, which allows it to further boost the compression factor, meaning games can take up less space on the SSD. Kraken supports decompression during execution.
