Sony’s new patent seems to be a cartridge to serve as a custom external SSD for the PlayStation 5

Playstation 5 will feature a built-in camera

Sony has already spilled the beans on its next-generation console PlayStation 5. Sony has revealed the first tidbits of information for its next-generation console–most likely named  PlayStation 5, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Sony has already promised that the Sony Playstation 5(PS5) will support 8K graphics, 3D audio, super-fast SSDs, and backward compatibility with existing PlayStation 4 games. Recently, we got more details on the next-gen console as the console even features a built-in camera. Then recently, after months of speculation, Sony finally confirmed that its next-generation console will be called the PlayStation 5, and arrive next year, launching in time for ‘Holiday 2020.’ Recently, a new patent suggested a controller that will connect directly over the internet, and not to the PS5 itself. And now, a new patent has surfaced the internet which seems to be a new gaming cartridge.

The new patent was first reported by the Dutch outlet LetsGoDigital, filed with Brazil’s Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial (INPI or National Institute of Industrial Property). The patent is dated November 5, 2019. Translated, the title reads “configuration applied to/in data recording and storage device.” From the looks of it, it is a GameBoy-styled cartridge.

Yujin Morisawa who is the senior art director for Sony Interactive Entertainment is listed as the product’s designer. This further hints that the cartridge could be designed for a successor to the PS Vita.
