The vehicle isn't moving per-se, the destination is being moved to it.

I'd say they're pretty different in concept. The former is designed to be reused and rewritten, and executables stored on it are usually wholly copied to the main device's primary storage before being run, as USB isn't fast enough. The latter is ROM made to hold a single program which is run off of it. Plus, cartridges (usually) aren't multi-platform.
