Switch games don't even have a 64GB card yet, and PS5 is supposed to make 4K a standard? Nah. These cartridges would be hella expensive and no developer would want to use them. I think Sony is making something that can appeal to the Japanese Market with a PSP3 type device that plays on the TV much like a Switch and they'll release it worldwide as well. If Sony can actually support the thing, it could see amazing success and be cartridge based.It'd probably be based off of newer tech than the Switch, and this is probably why people feel the Switch refresh will be in 2019 and will feature a power boost.
We should know more by mid 2019, if info doesn't start leaking before then.
The only way Sony can support an Handheld is if it has the same architecture as the Home console, allowing them to have a shared library. It has to be the PS4/Pro and XBO/X situation. If they try to do two platforms again, with the handheld, getting spinoffs of every major franchise it will just end up like the Vita again. If they want to succeed, they have to have proper GTA, RDR, COD, FIFA, NBA 2K, GOW, Horizon, Gran Turismo. People will not buy a spinoff device, to play spinoff games. They don't even buy spinoff games on the platforms they have, most of the time.
As for price, storage costs are going to drop massively, as capacity baloons over the next few years. Just like with HDD vs SSD in PS5, I expect they are looking down the road over the entire life of the console, and not just launch. It may not offer the biggest profits in 2020, but what will it look like in 2023 or 2026, as more and more games are starting to sell. As they move into those "Harvest Years" as John Kodera called them, Cartridges and M.2 NVMe Storage will pay massive dividends.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
