Tap one of these activity cards and you will load quickly in the relevant part of the game (thus increasing the loading time of the PS5 on NVMe 4.0), then you will receive a series of tips for all the goals or collectibles you have. missed. At this point, if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can tap these tips to see photos or videos to guide you, instead of picking up a nearby phone or laptop to search for a user-made tutorial. Then tap the extra button to leave these hints open in picture-in-picture mode.
Sony’s video doesn’t clarify how many games we should expect these tips to appear in, or whether Sony itself can create these non-Sony tips and gaming systems. From the look of things it depends on the individual game developers to build activities and related tips.
The video further confirms the funky picture-in-picture option for at least one type of video content: your friends̵

Xbox One launches with Snap as a way to embed multimedia apps in the sidebar of any game you play, only to withdraw that feature in 2017.

But the PS5 seems to have enough power for things like video streaming; Does this mean that we should expect media apps like YouTube, Twitch or Netflix to work as picture-in-picture shows so that you can watch your favorite overeating series while grinding daily newspapers? Fate 2,, Warframe, and such? Sony is not saying at the moment.
This second gallery offers a look at the main menu interface, which was only briefly covered in the video. Among other things, it seems to confirm that the PlayStation Store interface is now directly linked to the main menus, instead of requiring loading in a separate application, and the ad-explored “Exploration” section essentially retains the rest of the game’s cleaning interface. instead of placing ad units on default pages.
In addition, we finally received confirmation of what we had long assumed: that the built-in microphone of the DualSense controller will allow instant transmission of speech in text if you want to quickly send a message or caption to a photo of friends without hunting and pecking above the on-screen keyboard.
