The thoughtful 3D previews of PS5 PS5 storage cartridges have surfaced online, suggesting that Sony's next-generation console can work with expandable SSDs.
Last week we covered a new patent that Sony recently registered online entertainment for the PlayStation Cartridge. The patent was taken from Dutch technology website Let Go Digital and after their article last week, their site updates its article with some 3D renders.
As the author of the site, Mark Peters pointed out to me, Let Go Go Digital was able to create some 3D renderings of the patent of the tape that Sony filed. According to the Dutch technology site, we may very well be looking at 3D previews of Sony PlayStation 5 expandable SSD storage cartridges.
As we mentioned last week, the PS5 will not use the cartridges as a gaming tool, as Sony has already confirmed that the console from the next generation will have a Blu-ray drive.
As noted by Let Go Digital, the use of expandable SSD memory cartridges may be more logical since it allows Sony to reduce the PS5-based cost by offering different storage modules.
As noted by Let's Go Digital, the use of expandable SSD cartridges through a plug-in module may be more logical since it would allow Sony to reduce the price of the basic PS5. Let's Go Digital has created several 3D previews of speculated SSD cartridges. Although it may sound intrusive to some, the Sony patent mentions that the PlayStation cartridge is intended for "CONFIGURATION FOR / RECORDING AND STORAGE OF DATA IN A DEVICE".
That's all at the moment. speculation, so please take the information above with quite a pinch of salt for now.
Sony's leading PlayStation 5 architect, Marc Cherney, has already confirmed that the upcoming console will be equipped with a "dedicated" SSD that offers extremely fast boot times. Back in June this year, a Sony spokesperson revealed some additional details about this special drive.
"The ultrafast SSD is the key to our next generation," said a spokesman for the official PlayStation magazine. "Our vision is to turn the boot screens into the past, enabling creators to build new and unique gameplay experiences."
