Early PS5 Tests Suggest Xbox Series X Is Faster At Loading Old Games

The reviews for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S dropped yesterday (here's ours, in case you missed it!), and today is the turn of Sony's PlayStation 5, which our sister site Push Square has gone into lots of detail about!

We'll leave you to go and read up on the details yourself if you're interested, but one of the big takeaways from an Xbox perspective is that backwards compatible games seem to run quite a bit faster on the Xbox Series X.

This has been demonstrated in a handy comparison video by the folks at GameSpot:


The speed difference for these games might come as a bit of a surprise - especially considering the PS5's custom SSD is actually faster than the Xbox Series X's on paper, although the Series X wins out in terms of GPU/CPU power.

Backwards compatibility still appears to work perfectly well on PS5, but with more titles and seemingly faster loading times on Xbox Series X, we're definitely impressed with Microsoft's efforts in this area.
