Link to patent

Apparently it is different enough from existing techniques to be a patent of its own. We'll see when the games come out.

Personally, as long as it's at a reasonable fps, I'm good. That said, I would gladly take 4k 60 fps if I can.

I'm morally opposed to patents like this. Stifles the whole industry.

This idea isn't new so the way they patented it must have some very specific literature. Hopefully this means it'll be easy to bypass with similar results and will generally be hard to enforce.

I know a project that uses a similar idea. Rather than split up an area, whole areas are loaded and when you approach an area that would trigger a load (such as a door or warp point), it will pre-load before you get to it - thus appearing as if there is no loading.

It seems Sony are trying to get every advantage they can for the upcoming console gen.....

I was never the "graphic whore" type of guy, so it's the reason why I game in 1440p for better balance in terms of graphics/framerates.

So Sony have admitted there will be loading times, because games that use fast ravel will have to load because there is no adjacent areas on fast travel.

Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5 will set a new bar for consoles. So far, gamers expect a solid-state drive (SSD), ray tracing support, 8K resolution graphics, and possibly even a companion wireless virtual reality headset. All of these premium hardware features will help the PS 5 compete with increasingly alluring cloud gaming services. And it looks like Sony has even more where that came from.

In fact, it looks like the PS 5 will attempt to make loading screens a thing of the past. This is according to a recent continuation patent filed by Sony and which was granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday. The latest version of the patent describes how a future gaming system could split up game environments into various segments to enable smooth loading transitions.

If it performs as described, then gamers could smoothly move to any in-game area without having the game pause to boot up another map.

A visual representation of how the patent describes splitting a game map into various segments and pre-loading all adjacent areas players move to different places on the map.

Sony’s new system achieves this by splitting games up into a kind of jigsaw puzzle. Whenever a player steps into one of the pieces, or areas, the adjacent pieces will load automatically in the background in case the player chooses to travel in that direction. Here’s a summary of the patent:

“A system and method are disclosed for dynamically loading game software for smooth game play. A load boundary associated with a game environment is identified. A position of a character in the game environment is then monitored. Instructions corresponding to a next game environment are loaded into a memory when the character crosses the load boundary, such that game play is not interrupted.”

A loading screen means one of a few different things. Sometimes, it means that the console is transferring data from the hard disk memory to the console’s random access memory (RAM), which may be what renders your graphics. It might also mean the console is freeing up used RAM to use in the next level or stage. Current consoles and games have already come a long way toward eliminating wait times, but Sony promises to optimize this loading process even further.

The feature seems pretty likely. Not only does the continuation patent suggest Sony has been developing the technology for some time, but other companies have already achieved similar feats. Rockstar’s latest title, Red Dead Redemption 2, eliminated mid-game loading screens with a variation of this technique.

Eliminating loading screens could also pay serious dividends, particularly in games like Fallout 4, which remain rife with loading screens every time gamers enter a building or city. Other under-the-hood improvements will help Sony ensure game play is entirely seamless and immersive.

The PS 5’s solid state drive and next generation random access memory tech (dubbed GDDR6 RAM) will both make reading, writing, and editing information on the console faster than ever before. GDDR6 RAM, in particular, will be relevant to the problem of background loading as well.

GDDR6 RAM will succeed the GDDR5 RAM found in current-generation consoles. The new system will almost double the data transfer speed and improve its information processing to handle bigger loads. All of that will result in gamers spending far less time staring at a still image, and far more time exploring virtual worlds.

Sony working smarter not harder.

This isn't done on a game by game status, it's an internal system level technology.

Another benefit of having a system built specifically for gaming rather than having a bunch of individual parts thrown together.

If you thought Sony couldn't deal with the issue of loading times based on your so called PC knowledge:

Prior art PC's large scale partial resident tiled textures/Tiled Resources on SSD already delivered this. Streaming partial resident tiled textures can be bottle-necked by slow hard drives.

So they patented something that pretty much all games already use specially open world games. Cool, PS5 is really made of alien tech.

Oh and all the idiots who are saying since the patent is granted it must be new. They need to research patent wars and patent trolls. A patent doesn't mean it's a new or revolutionary thing.

It only took around 40 seconds to read a floppy so that is the comparison.

Loading screens or hard loading is and has always been dependent on the developer.

Nope, and 60fps and 4k will NOT be standard on all games.

@Alucard_Prime said:

An ambitious but difficult goal to meet. The internal SSD should be very nice but Im using an external SSD on my X and while it has significantly reduced loading times on many games, the benefit is sometimes negated by the fact that high res textures require more loading. The 4K native games that are open word really benefit from the SSD.

Definitely a good goal to have though, I hate loading screens and SSD is awesome I put all my main games on it now.

@boxrekt: Do you even understand how games work? The data is always transfered from the disc to the RAM and the CPU / GPU is accessing the data from the (v)RAM. Even if the disc and the transfer runs at lightspeeds, there is a (very tiny) moment where it loads. Unless you keep all data in the Ram and make sure it can be persisted when there is no power, it is IMPOSSIBLE to NOT have a moment to load. And since it will have an SSD, we already know they use a storage device that is not the RAM.

However, how long those loading screens are and how often they appear depend on many factors like how much data you need to load and when you load what, how long you keep it in the RAM etc. So a good dev can make sure the loading is unnoticeable and/or short while a horrible dev like the guys behind Anthem fail to do it.

#82 Edited by Pedro (35379 posts) -

@ArchoNils2: Adding to what you said, the system mentioned in the patent is not retroactive and has to be implemented in the development of the game. No system outside of the game can predict what needs to be loaded or where the player is relative to the needed data unless the game communicates that information.

Newsflash, this is NOT "no loading" technology. This is super secret behind-the-scenes loading technology. Which I detailed (as well as the potential limitations) in my prior discussions of the issue. Bandwidth, in particular, is the biggest concern - both on the CPU and the SSD side of things.

I also don't believe this is a universal solution like you claimed in the OP - I don't see where they assert that. I DO predict it will be game-to-game dependent on the extent it will be implemented. But I'll be pleased to be wrong on that - unlike your implication, I am NOT rooting against this. In case you somehow missed it, I am a long-time PS owner...

@boxrekt: this is nothing more than a page file. So basically Sony just has this built into the ps software so devs don’t have to set it themselves like pc players do. The bad thing is it takes up hard drive space and an ssd will never be as fast as ram. I’d be more hyped if they were actually using an M.2 drive for this since they are way faster than ssd’s and use pci lanes instead of SATA. Not revolutionary tech this basically makes it easier for devs. Sony and MS really good at selling buzzwords based on old tech and people continue to eat it up.

On top of being wrong along with others who completely flip flopped on their argument stances less than a month ago as I've prove with a single post, you and this peanut gallery of emotional posters went into a savage rage flinging angry flaming attacks because there's nothing you can to to erase history of what I showed.

It doesn't really matter if you described it, the point is people were saying they didn't believe it would be possible and now it's a complete 180.

No matter how Sony accomplish the technique, if they're actually able to eliminate in game loading then it proves everyone here wrong PERIOD.

Also you're suggesting it's not universal, that's cool.

But the tech is being designed at a system level irregardless of independent software.

Is it possible that not all games benefit from this technology? Sure, but the arguments in this thread are reaching and desperate saying this is old tech and every game already uses it, let's stop that. My link proves people are flip flopping on this subject. I wasn't aiming anything at you specifically, but like many others you were skeptical, and from this post, you're still skeptical. So be it.

Point is:

This tech here from Sony is a HARDWARE system solution =/= development dependent software

So everyone saying this has already been done is WRONG!

If this tech is so old, why was everyone (my link) so skeptical of it's viability? How was Sony able to get a patent? All the responses to these valid questions are deflection, damage control and angry flaming. Great!

It doesn't really matter if someone has designed specific games to do the same thing, this is a system level application for any game. If PC, console and every videogame already had this capability....why was this so heavily disputed?!

Where in my response was referring to BSP?

See this spining on your part show how sad your stupidy is.

You quoted someone who claim what sony is doing is BSP which exist since the 90's and you go and tell him to not tell OP,and that he thinks this is revolutionary.

In other freaking words you are agreen with the person you quoted and validating that BSP is what sony basically is doing.

Even the original 90's Doom used a similar technique called BSP (Binary Space Partitioning) to limit the memory load.

So Sony is actually patenting game design?

Its pretty obvious the level of bitternes on your part and how you agree with the notion that not only this is BSP (which is not) and then you try to redicule a point make on this thread and failed misserably.

What sony is doing is not BSP work on all games,and is not PRT or tile resources either which also work in another way,your game either use PRT or not,this work on all games and is not just for TEXTURES.

And yes i KNOW you didn't bring those or talk about those,but i my self bring it because i already read a post from Rondemencia talking about PRT or Tile resources which is the same shit with different names and that only adressd TEXTURES not audio,or effects,this work on a data level which mean it works on everything from sound to textures everything.
