UPDATE (29th Nov.): A quick clarification - No this won't be a PSVITA successor!
Thanks to the "sharp eyes" from our community member @Naked_Snake1995, this Patent Filing doesn't describe a Cartridge using for a PSVITA successor, where he explaines that this Cartridge is already in use for a total different Sony Product sold in South Korea only. You can find his explanation down below while the Original News is kept for reference only. I (Roxanne) have to apologize personally for any missunderstanding!
Well, even with the PS4 which still has a good run - no question - the whole world is waiting for a "PS4 successor". Nothing is known much and new rumors are already approaching nearly every day even when no one is sure if the successor will be even called "PS5". Sony already confirmed by their own that they are working for a "PS5" but maybe this isn't their only "crowd puller" which they are working on. Today, a new Patent Filing Application was found by the South Korean Patent Office (KIPRIS) showing a "Electronic Game Cartridge". Now you might ask why this would be for a PSVITA successor or even for a Handheld-Console in general? Yes, nothing is much known at the moment but it would sound logical. More interesting that even the PSVITA wasn't such a successful Product for Sony, they still have no interest to "yield the floor" to Nintendo and their way more successful "Nintendo Switch" only. Maybe this is a good sign since "Competition is good for business" and maybe with Sony sawing the success of the "Nintendo Switch", they could think that they should give the Handheld-Console-Market a 2nd chance.
One of the Patent Filing sketches showing a "Case" storing the Cartridge together with a "Connection Port" ???
- Essentials of Creation
- The shape of "the cartridge for the electronic game" and combination of the shape are combined to the essentials of the creation.
- Explanations of the Design
- The material is the synthetic resin, and the metal.
- [Fig. 1.1] It is the perspective drawing expressing the front side of the silver design, plane, and the form of the right side.
- [Fig. 1.2] The increased front portion of the design is expressed.
- [Fig. 1.3] The backside portion of the silver design is expressed.
- [Fig. 1.4] The left side flank portion of the design is represented increased.
- [Fig. 1.5] The increased right side part of the design is expressed.
- [Fig. 1.6] The pars plana of the silver design is represented.
- [Fig. 1.7] The bottom surface of the silver design is represented.
- [Fig. 1.8] It is the perspective drawing expressing the rear side of the silver design, the bottom surface, and the form of the right side.
So while this Patent Filing describes a "Cartridge" which will be probably used for storing retail Games, we can only hope that Sony learned from their mistakes from the past by not using a proprietary Format for a Memory Card again (which would cost you more money) instead of using a standard SD format like the Nintendo Switch does. Sadly this Patent Filing doesn't get in any specific details but it is curious that it seems describing a "case" using for the cartridge and a few sketches inside this Patent Filing shows something like a "connection port" which looks familiar. But the question would be for what they need a connection port on a Gaming Cartridge? A PSVITA Game Card has Connectors as well but it doesn't use a port in general unlike those older Classics on the (S)NES or the Nintendo 64. Maybe you would be allowed to add Files onto this Cartridge or maybe this wouldn't be used at all for storing Games in General? Nobody knows at this moment. Maybe Sony have some secret plans to bring the "PocketStation" back or even something like a "VMU Device" - Greetings to the "red curl" if you know who I mean :P
To view the Source of this Patent Filing, it will be a little bit tricky this time since the website from KIPRIS doesn't allow to link to this Patent Filing directly. Just visit their official Website and then you can type the Patent Filing-No. "3020170056196" into their search box and a new Pop-Up Window will open with showing the details from this Patent Filing including all Patent Filing sketches.
So what do you think? Could this showing that Sony is indeed planning a PSVITA successor? It would sound logical since the PSP was released before the PS3, the PSVITA before the PS4, so maybe it's a new turn for a PSVITA 2? You are welcome to discuss this down below.
PS Vita Could Sony be working on a PSVITA successor? [UPDATE: No they don't!]

IRISMAN 4.84 - A great manager with 4.84 CFW (CEX) SupportFollowing the update to webMAN MOD that provided support for 4.84 (CEX) Custom Firmware developer @aldostools was also directing another update for one of his other popular projects for the PS3, the backup manager known as IRISMAN. Like webMAN MOD is a fork to webMAN (by deank), IRISMAN is a fork of Iris Manager (by Estwald) that builds on a great foundation but offer a lot functionality and support not found in the original project. Like so many backup managers they serve as the All-in-One utilities for the jailbroken console.,The PS3 has no shortage of solutions, but in my mind there is a 3 headed monsters that leads the pack when it comes to a manager's choice. MultiMAN / IRISMAN / ManaGunZ are 3 very useful and feature rich managers and all are quite unique from each others and while there is some similarities in some features they provide, plenty of exclusive features are contained in their arsenals. You really can not go wrong with any of those three choices and no harm in trying all of them to see what suite you best,
In IRISMAN you will find a very functional file manager along with FTP support for transferring your files from the PC to the PS3 , MAMBA loader is also incorporated and with this feature it gives your Standard CEX CFW many COBRA CFW like features by injecting the MAMBA payload into your CFW, With this homebrew you can even enjoy other multimedia features like launching Retro Roms for RetroArch along with many other great features that can be found in this popular choice on the PS3 (CFW required),Continue reading
h-encore 2.0 released by TheFloW - Supports 3.70 spoofing (for PSN Access)Following up after the release of Modoru last week, which allows you to Downgrade your PlayStation Vita to a lower System Firmware to enjoy again great Hacks and Exploits written for System Firmware 3.60 or even below, today same Developer TheFloW released an updated Version of h-encore, namely with Version 2.0! While this update gives you new and additional Features like spoofing your PlayStation Vita to Sony's newest System Firmware 3.70, Developer TheFloW reminds you that if you aren't still in use of h-encore, then now it is the right time, especially since you can Downgrade your PlayStation Vita now if h-encore isn't enough for you and you want even more "out from your Device". This is recommended for a better Game Compatibility as well as for Homebrew, which needs higher Permissions from your Device, such as the famous HENkaku Ensō for instance. This update should also allow you to use the PlayStation Store more easier again but keep in mind that connecting to the PlayStation Store with a "hacked" and "exploited" Device - especially when the core of the Device is still based on a lower System Firmware - can always be dangerous and brings huge risks to a banned Account and/or similar. So please use this with caution.Continue reading
RPCS3 (PS3 Emulator) - December 2018 Progress ReportYes, I know, we are late again. But trust me, this last Progress Report for 2018 has "packed a punch". Not only that both performance and graphical issues has been improved from many AAA Game Titles, but also that in conclusion, the Team behind this wonderful Project has improved many other things as well, such like a better Controller Support (including better Mouse Support) and a (again) revamped Compatibility List by removing duplicates and other mistakes, which will be detailed down below. This means also that the Announcement from the November 2018 Progress Report with having now more than >3000 Game Titles on their list is now redundant, since they was able to find so many duplicates that the new List from December lists 100 Game Titles less now. But don't worry, even with 100 Game Titles less, the Team was still able to improve so many Game Titles, that the "Playable" Category has been improved compared to November 2018. So with now exactly 2938 Game Titles listed on their Compatibility List, it's just a question of time when they will reach the >3000 Game Titles mark again.Continue reading
