I love everything, some great new features too. Wish they'd shown more though!

There's no quick resume it seems but games load from cold about as fast as they resume on series X, its just missing the jumping right back to where you were. I guess that's the sacrifice for extra storage space.

The new party stuff feels like the big new next gen thing with screen sharing and fast joining, the game helps activities and cards are nice but nothing crazy.

Feels like there's going to be no big surprising feature, the speed and party innovations are the main big thing. Everything like the store being integrated and the control centre mean its going to be so much smoother and faster than PS4, which is already pretty good. That's what matters most for launch, they can add more features down the line.

Big things missing was a look at the store, settings menus and stuff like that and no exploration of the home screen and how folders and media will work. We know games and media are separate though which is great.

yeah that looks frickin fantastic.  Love the store is now fully integrated and not a separate app.  Picture in picture is really cool to being able to watch another friends playthrough while still playing your own.  Not sure i'd use it too often but i like the idea of it.

The home screen being a modernized and slicker version of the PS4 home screen was the perfect move.

Why is this icon called switcher? Perhaps there is some kind of game switching after all? On top of that, there was no message to say sackboy would close or be suspended when switching games.

Edit: I also totally missed that on entering rest mode it says "suspend your games" which it definitely wouldn't say if you could only suspend one.

i thought we had confirmation that we would be able to resume multiple games?  Or was that just an "insider" saying that?

We've had no confirmation.

Lets see if devs actually support cards this time lol.

PS4 does the same thing with live area but it was so easy to ignore.

i hope so.  These seem to have tons more functionality purposes for the games.  Hopefully its a little more mandatory this time around.

Live area was crud this is much more integrated.

Also new find, you can see at the 8:40 mark of the video both Sackboy and Destruction allstars are suspended:



PS5 can suspend multiple games for sure.
