Sony Files Patent For A New Game Cartridge; Is The PlayStation 5 Going To Use Them?

Or, is the Japanese company preparing a new handheld…?

Yujin Morisawa, the senior art director at Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Corporate Design Center, has designed the cartridge below, which was filed by Sony in November 2017, and accepted this October. We are talking about game cartridges – something that the Nintendo Switch uses nowadays.

However, companies like to file patents for their ideas, but now, multiple things lined together – in 2017, a Switch-like handheld’s idea surfaced on the NeoGAF forums (we might have discussed it, too), which is weird, as the almost seven-year-old PlayStation Vita, which still has some success in Japan (and which also uses cartridges that will not be manufactured shortly…), isn’t planned to get a successor.

So if it won’t be a Vita successor that uses carts, will it be the PlayStation 5 that doesn’t have an official name yet? Did Sony get an idea to include more than 50 GB of data on a single cartridge that seems to have a hole in it…?
