Game news It compares the power-up times of PlayStation consoles from PS1 to PS5. You will be surprised to know which console is the fastest!
We believe that the arrival of super processors and SSD hard drives in our consoles guarantees speed. Internet users had fun comparing the power-up times of PlayStation consoles and the verdict is clear. So, which is the fastest?

This tradition has been somewhat lost with time and the advent of new consoles, but there was a time when the ignition screen was taken very seriously by research and development teams. Since the mid-1980s, manufacturers – rightly – believed that consoles should debut with an animated screen embodying the brand’s philosophy. The famous “boot screens” then took over, until their relative disappearance caused much nostalgia among players. All it takes is a simple sound (Game Boy, PlayStation, etc.) or a short animation for players to recognize the console in question, within a few seconds.
To make an impression, manufacturers competed in imagination and sometimes called on real big names to imagine flashy startup screens. Depending on each company’s philosophy, we’ve seen the advent of more or less long start-up screens, sometimes peppered with funny little inventions. But it was really with the advent of consoles equipped with CD-ROM readers that these screens became iconic. PlayStation, Saturn, Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, Gamecube, Xbox 360… all you had to do was turn on these machines to be instantly transported to their world. Nintendo machines are also known to hide (secret) sound easter eggs that evolve due to small manipulations or additions of controllers. You can hear children having fun or even sumotori.
Which PlayStation console is the fastest?
Over time, this tradition has evolved a bit and manufacturers today prefer to move towards sustainability. Start screens no longer have the artificiality of that time (much to the dismay of some players who feel they lack identity) and designers explain this approach by the need to get to the heart of the game more quickly. But in reality, is this the real effect of the famous boot screen? With the evolution of technology and generations of consoles, users have enjoyed comparing the startup times of PlayStation machines.
He ranked each of the brand’s iconic home consoles by calculating startup times (with no physical games inside, which is important) and the results are astounding.. At the risk of surprising some, it’s actually the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 that are the fastest at just 11 seconds, while the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5 turn on in around twenty seconds. The prize for the slowest console goes to the PlayStation 3 with startup in… 25 seconds! In short, you’ll understand that, even if technology has evolved and start-up screens are quieter now, ignition timing hasn’t necessarily evolved in the right direction.
