Sony filed a patent for a new Game Cartridge, will future PS games be Cartridge based? *****Update*** It appears to be for Toio :(

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony filed a patent for a new Game Cartridge, will future PS games be Cartridge based? *****Update*** It appears to be for Toio :(

I guess this is just for the next handheld. The costs for a cartridge on PS5 imho still overweight the benefits. But who knows, maybe Sony is willing to lose money initially on the cartridges for the option to make the console smaller and cheaper to produce plus faster to read.

Those are my thoughts too. The difficult thing with removing the disc drive would be how to sell that to gamers that have a PS4 library that want B/C.

That's not a problem. People could just use external drives for such things. 

edit: Looks like the patent has nothing to do with PlayStation:

Gotta be for a new handheld, no way they switch from disc to cartridges for PS5.
