Sony cartridge with new patent exposure but may not be related to PS5 or PSV2

Recently, foreign media outlet letsgodigital discovered a cartridge patent from Sony, which the media said was filed in June and updated this month. After the news came to light, there was a lot of speculation that Sony’s PS5 would be on the cassette, that Sony’s PS5 would be a handheld/host hybrid, and that Sony was even developing a new Vita-PSV2.

None of the above guesses, however, may be. In fact, the patent is likely to have been filed for Sony’s Toio children’s toys, rather than PlayStation hardware.

In fact, this isn’t the first time a player has taken a patent mad at sonica. Back in 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment filed a similar game card-band patent, sparking wild speculation. Of course, the end result was disappointing. The truth is, the 2018 card-band patent is for Sony Electronic Children’s Toys, not any PlayStation hardware products.

Toio patents are often mistaken for PlayStation hardware patents because they were submitted by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The new patent was designed by Yujin Morisawa, who has designed many interesting things for Sony, such as the music player Rolly and various Toio products.

Although Sony did patent a switch-like, but not deformed handheld, the company has repeatedly said it has no plans to develop psV successor models. Sony’s current focus is on the PS5 and its games and services.

Considering that the PS5 has confirmed that it will be equipped with a 4K UHD optical drive and a 100GB Blu-ray BDXL disc, will the PS5 need another form of cassette system? Foreign media believe that if the new patent is really related to PS5, then this could be an extended memory or ultra-fast PCIe. 4.0 SSD related.

The 2018 patent is actually a hard accessory to the Toio game
