The First Tree launches today on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4

It must be noted that Sony also filed a patent for a handheld game console a year ago.

Video game consoles has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years despite developers and device manufacturers creating mobile specific games and phones. Nevertheless, even if 2019 could be Nintendo's year, Sony will still be number one if you consider the number of consoles which are already in use.

Just imagine a Nintendo Switch-style device with a high-capacity and high-speed game cartridge system, PS4-level internal hardware, and a lightning fast 5G connection for multiplayer gaming on the go or high-fidelity game streaming?

Assuming this is real, it could mean that the PS5 has a portable gaming component like the Switch, or perhaps Sony is cooking up a refreshed PS Vita that will play the same games as your PS5 at home using the same media. But some PS Vita fans may be wondering how likely the Sony patents will eventually turn into an actual product.

Back in the day, all the game consoles used cartridges.

The study predicts that Nintendo will sell 17.3 million Switch consoles, whereas Sony is expected to sell 17.1 million.

Sony Files New Game Cartridge Patent

Sony filed a patent for a game cartridge.

Sony also explained the how Disc Change functionality and Memory Cards/Save System will work on PlayStation Classic.

"Rather than separating portable gaming from consoles, it's necessary to continue thinking of [portable gaming] as one method to deliver more gaming experiences and exploring what our customers want from portable", Sony's Gaming division head, John Kodera, said at the time, according to Bloomberg. Sony have loaded the miniature games console with 20 games designed for the original PlayStation One including Final Fantasy VII, TEKKEN 3, Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash!, Wild Arms and more. Games saved on hard drives or solid-state drives load faster than those on discs.

Sony probably won't reveal its plans anytime soon because it is skipping E3.
