The discovery of a new patents patent has rumored rumors that Sony may well consider a new PlayStation Portable console to compete with Nintendo Switch.
The rumors about a potential new PSP began to appear earlier this year after Sony comments during an annual report. The report contained a statement in which Sony explained its reasoning behind the smartphone market, focusing on 5G technology (as all portable devices can be connected to the cloud) is the main focus. The statement says that Sony “aims to develop 5G technology as a skill that can be used across the Sony Group.”
With 5G intended to be used “over” the Sony Group, “the eyes naturally fell on Sony’s portable gaming efforts. If a PSP contained 5G technology, Sony would theoretically not have to worry about internal power and processing and could instead overrun PS4 games like God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 on the portable device.
So about this new patent. As originally discovered by TechTastic, resembles the new type of cartridges PS Vita cartridges from the past and can therefore be used in a theoretical, new Sony handheld computer. Exciting, or how? Not really.
