Kotaku has pitted the loading times of Sony‘s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft‘s Xbox Series X against each other, and the results show that speeds come very close.

The PS5’s loading speeds versus the Xbox Series X’s were compared on the cross-platform games NBA 2K21 and Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. Both consoles come with enhanced SSDs. The first game Kotaku tested was Devil May Cry 5, which can be displayed up to 120 frames per second, running on a monitor with 4K resolution and 60 fps. What was measured was the loading time between “hitting ‘continue’ and gaining control of [the] character.” PS5 came in at 4.01 seconds, while the Xbox Series X trailed behind at 5.59 seconds. The next test measured “the time to get from the launch icon on the consoles’ respective dashboards to the start menu, hitting start to bypass the opening cinematic.” The PS5 arrived at 19.52 seconds, while the Xbox Series X clocked in at 41.98 seconds. Next, Kotaku put on NBA 2K21, measuring the time that it took from “hitting the button to launch a ‘Play Now’ game and mashing through the prompts.” The PS5 measured in at 6.92 seconds; Xbox Series X, 5.19 seconds. Kotaku concluded, overall, that the Xbox Series X takes a “little longer getting into games” than the PS5, but once inside, the difference in loading speeds seem almost “negligible.”

Head over to Kotaku‘s website to check out the PS5 and Xbox Series X’s comparative speed test.

In case you missed it, Sony has explained why many PS5 games will cost above the standard price.
