PS5 will use cartridges, reveals unlikely new patent

All this seems to be a weird old school for the PlayStation 5 (Image: LetsGoDigital).

Sony seems to be an old school when it comes to delivering games on the PlayStation 5, but what's the new cartridge? Really for?

If the Nintendo Switch does not still use a kind of cassette, we would fear that many younger games will not even know what they are. But for some reason, Sony brings back the concept for the PlayStation 5.

It's probably not about saving games, but a patent was found on a Brazilian legal website on the Dutch website LetsGoDigital. The cartridge design was created by Yujin Morisawa, Senior Art Director of the Corporate Design Center at Sony Interactive Entertainment. Although we doubt that it took him a long time, because the picture looks like a normal game cartridge from the 90s.

For whom it was designed, the burning question of why it is so, because Sony has never tapes used for anything in their home consoles, and in these days of digital distribution, they seem less relevant than ever to keep the format of the N64, rather than use CDs, and inspire Sony to join the game industry after discontinuing the Nintendo PlayStation project.

Cartridges were important to Nintendo's pay-line because only they could manufacture them and this enabled them to charge third-party lucrative royalties to allow their games to appear on Nintendo formats.

Cartridges also stopped piracy and reduced loading times to a minimum. The latter, however, will be less of a problem due to the use of an SSD on the PlayStation 5.

Or maybe with the cartridge This is a kind of hardware expansion – in the past Nintendo was very big on things like the Expansion Pak – but that seems almost as retro as putting a game on a tape.

In summary: We have no idea what that is for. Do that?
