V for deVelopment
Is that a “V” or an “A”? I never knew. Nor did I actually really care, since it’s actually a well-designed ventilation system built into the casing of what many believe to be the PlayStation 5 development kit.
Various blurry images have popped up here and there over the last few months, following an equally leaky patent filing. The latest images aren’t blurry, however. Twitter user @Alcoholikaust posted purported images of the dev kit in the wild, complete with the noted V shape and PS5 dev controller, sent to him by a developer who just “didn’t give a fuck.”. It’s worth noting that there is a highly plausible chance (100%, we reckon) that final PS5 design will be nothing like the dev kit, and the dev controller itself is likely just a modded version for devs to mess around with.
Either way, it’s still pretty neat to see the kit out in the wild, if true. The PS5 is set to launch next Fall/Holiday season 2020, with a likely reveal between now and E3.
