Sony Teases PocketStation’s Return


Sony is no stranger to teasing some big announcements as this year they finally unveiled some new gaming products such as the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita TV. But the company is apparently teasing the announcement for a peripheral for its original PlayStatoin, the PocketStation, which we’ll apparently know more about on November 5.

Those of you who aren’t aware of what the PocketStation is, the device is a memory card that was built for the original PlayStation that includes a monochrome LCD, infrared ports, built-in flash memory, audio and five buttons. The PocketStation supported multiplayer through its included infrared capabilities, which also allowed users to transfer data between devices, such as game saves.

The PocketStation was released in Japan back in early 1999 for the original PlayStation, with Sony even luanching the device in multiple colors: white and clear. The PocketStation sold out shortly after its release, with Sony discontinuing production of the memory card in 2002.

We’re not entirely sure what’s going on here either since the PlayStation 4 is getting ready to be released in just two weeks. If Sony is seriously planning on releasing the PocketStation again, they might be a couple of decades too late.
