Sony has filed a patent for a curious new cartridge in Brazil, raising speculation about the nature of the product it's designed for. The last cartridge-based console has been released to the company. Could this be a new handheld?
The answer is almost certainly no, because we’ve been here before, haven’t we? Around this time last year, the platform holder patented a strangely shaped cartridge, prompting all sorts of speculation. Those rumors were quickly quelled, however, when it emerged that device was actually for the Sony Toio, a toy only available in Japan.
This new cartridge has been submitted by Yujin Morisawa, the same man behind the aforementioned toy. Nothing to see here, then? Sony R&D messing around. We’d recommend you don’t get your hopes up either.
