PlayStation 5 Leaked Dev Kit Design Confirmed

Yesterday, a new hardware patent from Sony Interactive Entertainment for an unknown electronic device surfaced, and it appeared to be for the PlayStation 5 developer kit. At the time, it wasn't clear if it was indeed the PS5 dev kit, however, many assumed it was because it was unclear what else it could be. That said, it seems those assumptions were correct. Since the patent started to make the rounds early yesterday, a developer has chimed in claiming that is indeed the PS5 dev kit, and they know this because they have one at the office.

I honestly do not like the look of this, wont stop me from getting it day one but I really hope the one we buy does not look like this, I know it probably wont as it's a dev kit but still, just dont like it.

anonymousfan1504d ago

Yeah I honestly think it looks atrocious I don't want that in my living room

IRetrouk1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

While I've never been overly fussed on console design, that was my first thought too.

WickedLester1503d ago

It could look like a 1956 Studebaker for all I care as long as it's powerful and runs quiet.

UltraNova1503d ago

I dont care about the box as long as its designed to vent heat out, effectively and quietly.

IRetrouk1503d ago

Like I say, while I'm generally not bothered by the looks of a console, I just dont like it, just one of those things🤷‍♂️

As the article states, dev kits rarely look like the retail version. Regardless, the more important thing is what it can do. Besides, Sony has a rich history of attractive hardware and electronics. I'm confident the console will be slick just as the PS4 was. It's interesting when u compare the history of Sony hardware with Nintendo and Microsoft. By and large, Sony has had the more impressive looking hardware. Nintendo products are generally cheap looking white plastic with average build quality. Microsoft has had ugly hardware up until maybe the S/XB1X. Sony's history as a leading consumer electronics supplier obviously gives them an advantage.

Chill out man 🤣, I'm well aware devs kits dont tend to look like the final version, I've said as much in my first comment, none of what you wrote takes away the simple fact that I think it looks terrible. Nothing to do with nintendo or microsoft or even sonys other consoles, my comment is just for this abomination.

Inzo1503d ago

According to the article its most likely a dev kit and not the final production design.

garos821503d ago

Dev Kits never look the same like the final consumer product. No where near the same even

Gaming1011502d ago

There is no official bezel for the console yet. The picture on this article is a photoshop much like other photoshops of consoles over the years, all of which look ridiculous.

xer01502d ago

Sony is blowing smoke to distract and limit exposure. Developers are sources of major leaks and this a clever ploy on their part.

Dev kits rarely look like the finished console. PS4 dev kit looks nothing like PS4. Dev kits are dev kits for a reason. They pack more power than the home version and have other hardware inside. PS5 will look nothing like this

360 dev kits we big, ugly green bricks.

I question the verifying 3rd party devs verification. Final dev kit boxes aren't typically released this early, so even if the patent shows it like that, the final kit in such a polished form is unlikely to even be produced yet. That would require final production of the form factor. Generally, dev kits at this stage of pre-release are just special build PC's.

Smok911503d ago (Edited 1503d ago )

It won’t. Dev kits, especially early models tend to be nothing like the consumer product.

Brave_Losers_Unite1503d ago

You do realize the final product wont look like this right?

SmielmaN1502d ago

Dev Kits never look like the consumer product. Google some of the older gens dev kits and watch your worries float away

WelkinCole1502d ago

I will never understand gamers like you that care about how a console look.

Mr_Writer851502d ago

Why would how a dev kits looks like matter?

mandingo1502d ago

So why you saying you don’t like it if the final console won’t look like it. You’ll never see it. I don’t understand.

IRetrouk1502d ago (Edited 1502d ago )

Easy, the article is confirming what the dev kit looks like, I'm giving my view on said look......

Mr_Writer851502d ago

Again why does it matter what it looks like?

adonisisfree1502d ago

Of course it won’t look like that. Lol

chobit_A5HL3Y1502d ago

as long as it’s designed well; lasts a long time and doesn’t overheat, then i don’t really care what it looks like.
