    Sony has patented some sort of cartdrige SSD, so it might be expandable at least.

    That patent was unrelated to gaming.

    That sounds like you would be required to buy proprietary drives from Sony. Like how it worked for Xbox 360.

    Not a problem of course so long as they don't mark it up to much.

    You don't need the external SSD to be as fast as the internal one if they used the internal one as a cache for the external one in that use case.

    If the speed of the internal storage solution is as fast as they are claiming then anything short of using Thunderbolt 3 would not match it.

    It was registered under SONY Interactive Entertainment?

    It was confirmed to be for a toy. Not for a game console.

    Ok, missed that. Although to be pedantic, it is related to "gaming", just not to console gaming :p. You could have been more specific, as I went to see the patent which did fit the bill.

    They were right at one point in time before they were wrong. I didn't double down on anything.

    The specs were the best available info at I had at the time.

    The base has a port that allows you to attach a flush-fitting expansion. Raises/extends the XBSX by 1.25 cm and allows you to fit any NVMe drive you want.

    Actually, I really thought someone said it was unrelated to gaming, until you pointed out it was by SIE. Instead of losing the argument, I looked it up and found out it's a toy unrelated to playstation. That was extreme laziness on my part. :lol:

    It doesn't have to match it is the thing. Maybe you'd always have to load a portion of the game into the internal drive to be playable but other than that, streaming into the internal drive and using it as a cache should be possible.
