Sony Files New Game Cartridge Patent

Sony Files New Game Cartridge Patent

After the Vita failed to hit the numbers that were expected, Sony stepped away from handheld devices.

According to reports, Dutch site TechTastic revealed a Sony patent for an "electronic game cartridge" filed in South Korea previous year with Korean Intellectual Property Right Information Service (KIPRIS). However, many gamers now prefer to get their games in a digital format as they can't be destroyed and do not require any physical space. There are no details regarding the specific use and function of the cartridge. Dutch website, Techtastic (translated), helped make the filing for an "electronic game cartridge", public earlier this month. It's an unusual cartridge design straight from Sony's R&D department. The company is reportedly working on the successor to the PlayStation 4, which is now five years old.

Assuming this is real, it could mean that the PS5 has a portable gaming component like the Switch, or perhaps Sony is cooking up a refreshed PS Vita that will play the same games as your PS5 at home using the same media.

On the whole, this patent may be hinting at things to come from Sony in the future, but PlayStation fans shouldn't expect anything at this point when no confirmation is available.

Sony also explained the how Disc Change functionality and Memory Cards/Save System will work on PlayStation Classic. Such a device would actually be closer to the vision of Sony's current chief executive. Yes, you heard me right: for the first time in over 20 years, Sony will be pulling out of the biggest event in the industry's calendar year. Back in May, Sony's Playstation Cheif Kodera has said "In my opinion, rather than separating portable gaming from consoles; it's necessary to continue thinking of it (portable gaming) as one method to deliver more gaming experiences and exploring what our customers want from portable".

On November 26, Sony released an unboxing video of PlayStation Classic on YouTube (don't worry if you missed it, we have it added it for you at the end of the article).
