The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are the hottest topics for gamers presently. While we await the official arrival of these consoles, a recent survey of PS5 gamers shows what new features a majority want. A recent survey by ISFE and GameTrack asked about 8,000 consumers what they need from the upcoming PS5. These consumers cut across Spain, Germany, France, Italy, and the UK.
According to the results, 68% of gamers needs better graphics or visuals on the PlayStation 5. The percentage increases to 78 if we only consider console users specifically. One of the main selling points of the PS5 is a shorter loading time. Interestingly, 63% also placed priority on shorter loading time.
Furthermore, only 40% think that 8K support is important while 49% think that better motion control is key. What about backward compatibility? About 48% think that backward compatibility is important while playing physical games was important to 47% of all surveyed gamers.
From the survey, its obvious that a bulk of gamers want better graphics – at least from some major European countries. However, a good chunk also needs shorter load times, motion controls, and backward compatibility. In addition, the least needed feature is VR support.
