However, unbeknownst to us, Sony has added a nifty little feature for future owners of the console.

This feature means that, when booting a game, the PS5 will skip logos after having viewed them once.

What does this mean for PS5 owners however? Let's jump into that now!

As such, his conclusion about the feature likely comes from the Demon Souls game.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS: The PS5 comes in 2 versions, Digital and Disc

This means that, for those who own the console, the second time you start a game you won't have to sit through the logo screens.

Lance even mentions that if you delete your save, the feature still works.

As such, if you deleted the saved data you have for a game, the PS5 will still recognise it's not your first time playing.
