PlayStation 5 game cartridge or external SSD? The truth can now be revealed
There’s no denying any news about the PS5 can generate excitement nowadays, as the reveal of the next-gen console draws closer. Unfortunately, one suspected PS5-related leak can now be consigned to the “unrelated” folder – the rumored PS5 game/SSD cartridge.
LetsGoDigital has been informed by an industry insider that the patent drawing, which was later turned into renders of rather convincing game cartridges and even more convincing potential external SSD upgrades for the PS5, is for nothing more than a Toio game cartridge.
Unsurprisingly, a game cartridge function for the PS5 would seem quite odd, and we originally speculated on the possibility that the patent was for a Toio-related product. However, there was a general agreement – and excitement – over the potential of the cartridge being expandable SSD storage for the PS5. It might be worthwhile for Sony to latch onto the interest that was shown for that particular speculation and maybe implement a similar system for its next-gen console.
