Last week, the disclosure by Dutch technology media letsGoDigital of a sony PlayStation game card card franchise sparked a frenzy of speculation – will the upcoming game console PlayStation 5 be designed with a cassette? Although many people think this is unlikely, but given that the patent was filed in June this year, was officially included this month, so the bold speculation of foreign media should be to move the SSD game warehouse.
It is important to note that the applicant for this patent is the same company as the PS5 design patent that has previously caused great concern. In addition, yujin Morisawa, the designer of the ribbon, is the senior artistic director of Sony Interactive Entertainment, responsible for all products related to the PlayStation brand.
Assuming Sony’s new PlayStation 5 console does use this ribbon design, its use is a bit intriguing. Whether it’s a classic game card strap or an external SSD game box, does this design give PlayStation 5 extra storage space?
Although the cassette design is a bit retro, there are many benefits to this system. The game cassette has been around for more than 40 years and has been used by old consoles such as Atari, Sega and Nintendo. In Nintendo’s Switch, for example, the game cassettes are still very popular, suggesting that this game has a tenacious vitality.
However, Sony has chosen CD-ROM since the PlayStation era, and then Blu-ray. Sony Entertainment has confirmed that the next PlayStation console will be equipped with a Blu-ray drive that can support up to 100GB of discs. The disk drive is also clearly visible on the Sony PS5 Developers Kit. Therefore, the PS5 seems unlikely to have a game card band. And, for regular game cards, these modules seem to be large.
Therefore, scalable SSD storage should be more logical. By using scalable memory, the Sony PlayStation 5 base model is more acceptable to gamers. Many consumers, including avid gamers, have expressed concerns on social media about the proposed retail price, which they believe has caught Sony’s attention.
The high price of the PlayStation 3 led to disappointing sales results. Sony’s marketing department will certainly want to avoid a repeat of this. Therefore, scalable memory in the form of pluggable solid-state drive boxes may be a good solution.
