PlayStation Cartridge Patent Registered in Brazil by Sony Interactive Entertainment - Wccftech

A PlayStation cartridge patent has been registered by Sony Interactive Entertainment earlier this year at the Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial (INPI) in Brazil, as . Sony used Kasznar Leonardos as the local IP agent to submit the application.

The design of this PlayStation cartridge was realized by Yujin Morisawa, Senior Art Director at the Corporate Design Center of Sony Interactive Entertainment and responsible for all products associated with the PlayStation brand. In his 15 years with Sony, Yujin has designed products in various fields - from cosmetics and electronics to the Agent robot ().

Are you having a deja-vu? If so, that s perfectly normal. Every single detail about the PlayStation 5 development kit () emerged in the very same way on the Web, with the patent designed by Morisawa, registered at the INPI, and then spotted by LetsGoDigital.

Needless to say, this lends a lot of credibility to this rumor. However, the purpose of this PlayStation cartridge remains unclear at this point. Sony has never used cartridges for its home consoles before, and the PlayStation 5 has already been officially confirmed to feature a Blu-ray drive that can read triple-layered discs (up to 100GB).

On the other hand, Sony did use cartridges for the PlayStation Vita, its latest handheld console, released in 2012. At the same time, Sony has repeatedly stated that they don t have a new handheld console in the works, mostly due to the PlayStation Vita s own failure as well as the enormous rise of mobile gaming through smartphones and tablet devices.

Of course, they could have had a change of heart since. Still, we re eager to see where this is going and will definitely let you know of any further developments regarding this particular patent.
