in secret. Nevertheless, the new patent of the company raises thoughts about the return of old technologies.

As it turned out, the company registered an existing device for the Sony Toio programming kit for children. Now this is a brand new product. Judging by the single image, Sony is working on a cartridge that looks like game cartridges for the Japanese Famicom (NES in the US and Europe) from Nintendo.

It is not yet known which device the patented cartridge is designed for, since the PlayStation 3 has already used BluRay discs to distribute physical copies of games.

The only Sony prefix thatused cartridges, there was a PlayStation Vita, but back in 2018 the company stopped their production and now games for the console can only be bought in digital form. Perhaps Sony looked at the success of the Nintendo Switch and decided to return to the PS Vita 2 portable console market, which is now ruled by Big N.
