Sony Files Patent For New Game Cartridge For Some Reason

Sony Files New Game Cartridge Patent

Sony Files New Game Cartridge Patent

The new Sony patent is entitled "Electronic game cartridge", and it has little information on the product, although it does include several informative images.

Filed in late 2017, the patent application's illustrations appear to show a cartridge that combines elements of flash drives with old-school cartridges.

Techtastic recently covered the unveiling of a Sony patent filed previous year which was made public by the Korean Intellectual Property Right Information Service (KIPRIS).

Sony's fans expect lots of novelties and improvements for the future PlayStation 5, including 8k support, 8-core AMD Ryzen CPU with Zen+ architecture and GDDR6 RAM.

Sony sold just 16 million PlayStation Vita. However, the patent does make it clear that Sony has portable gaming in mind.

Of the 20 games included on the PlayStation Classic, there are only a handful that are worth your time.

Another developer who has a "strong console game development" experience is also hiring a new work planner for a "next-generation hardware". However, that's not a big surprise as Sony is centering on its console's design, while, on the contrary, Microsoft focuses on the performance and technical specs of its Xbox consoles, leaving design behind.

For more information and to preorder your PlayStation Classic games console jump over to the official PlayStation Store by following the link below.

According to the company's predictions, next year, Nintendo will sell 17.3 million Nintendo Switch consoles worldwide, while Sony will sell only about 17 million PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro consoles. This next gen-hardware can be none other than the PS5 or Xbox Scarlet.

Games consoles have relied on optical discs and digital delivery for several generations now, with game cartridges being a more expensive and storage limited option.

Wehle enlisted the help of DO Games (https://do-games.com) to complete the ports. For example, games in digital format can't be resold.

Sony probably won't reveal its plans anytime soon because it is skipping E3.
