Rumour: PS5 Devkit Design Allegedly Surfaces


PS5 PlayStation 5 Sony 1

This is apparently the PlayStation 5’s devkit design – either that or it’s an elaborate fake. The above artwork matches several other images uncovered on a Brazilian website, although the jury’s obviously still out on their authenticity. Sony engineer Yasuhiro Ootori is listed as the designer, although his name is spelled wrong, which is a big red flag.

Assuming this does turn out to be legit, it’s worth remembering that the consumer product is unlikely to look anything like this. For example, the PlayStation 4 devkit is much bulkier than the retail device; it looks more like an old-school VCR than the sleek tiered parallelogram available in stores. One thing worth mentioning is that there’s lots of ventilation, which would tally with rumours about the next-gen system being absurdly powerful.
