That easy. We can insert the disc or download our old digital version of the game, connect the instruments and … play. In addition, we will be able to transfer our progress and we will have cross play between ecosystems, which will make it easier for us to play between PS4 and PS5 users as well as Xbox One with Xbox Series X | S.
Harmonix also anticipates in this new statement that the performance of the game will be better than on PS4 and Xbox One thanks, to a large extent, to the SSD storage memory, which will reduce loading times and the waiting times between each song and concert. “You will notice an obvious improvement in the performance of both consoles, especially in load times. Starting to play has never been so fast, even in the highest volume bookstores, ”they comment.
