Image of the PlayStation 5 Dev Kit Reportedly Leaked - News

Following a release of a render of the PlayStation 5 development kit an actual image of the console has apparently appeared online. YouTube channel ZONEofTECH in a new video has posted an image of the development kit.

The dev kit for the PS5 features the same V shape that was seen in the render. V in Roman Numerals stand for the number five, so the shape could be a nod to the name of the console. 

The top left of the front panel features the text "Prototype 1 Not For Sale." There also appears to be six USB ports, as well as an opening where a disc can be inserted.

 The PlayStation 5 will launch in Holiday 2020.

If in the end, the design is similar to this I wouldn't mind. Thought it silly at first, but it's grown on me.

It would certainly make a statement. However, dev kits rarely looks like the final product as they have a lot of extra stuff under the hood.

@trunkswd - Very true, but I wonder if the design is (as rumored) because of a special cooling system they've implemented and if they might keep the general design. Dev kits are often large featureless boxes as the case doesn't matter...interesting that in this case, there is a design thought up for it.

Who here likes this design and would be fine with the final design of the PS5 being the same or similar to this?

My main concern with this design is that I think it would lend itself to accumulating dust at an accelerated rate. Someone's definitely putting a slice of pizza in there too. I think it's kinda neat though.

The middle part is where you keep nachos warm.

It is a dev kit, so the final product will likely be a lot smaller. You should check out the original Xbox dev kits. It was a giant X.

Looks a lot uglier than the previous leaks and drawing.

Nice netgear modem. Want it standing vertical though.

It is sexy retro.

It's a film projector. Also ugly.

think-man (on 20 October 2019)

I just realized that the V in the middle represents 5 xD

VAMatt (on 19 October 2019)

I don't really understand why people care about what the dev kit looks like. It doesn't have anything to do with the final appearance of the retail units.
