BeeCards are the size of a credit card and were used for the commercial distribution of games, mostly by Hudson Soft themselves. The card contains an integrated circuit (IC) that is placed close to the connectors and protected by a thin plastic layer. Compared to the more traditional ROM cartridges used by most early game consoles, the BeeCard is relatively small and compact.
The MSX and the Atari Portfolio were the only systems known to have used BeeCards. The MSX required a "BeePack", a special adapter the size of a traditional MSX cartridge which contains a slot on the top into which the BeeCard is placed.
