Are Cartridges Returning To Gaming Consoles?

Remember the days of Nintendo and Sega game cartridges? Well, cartridges may be returning with the introduction of Sony’s Playstation 5. However, its not what you think. Sony filed a patent that looks similar to a game cartridge but its for storage. The filing details a solid state drive cartridge for Sony gaming systems, presumably the PS5, which can hold 1, to 3 TB of data. In the concept drawing however, they seem to resemble the game cartridges of yesteryear.
