Diagrams of what claims to be the development kit (Dev Kit) of Sony’s PlayStation 5 have been leaked on the internet.
The PlayStation 5 Dev Kit is the specially modified version of the console used by developers to create games on.
However, it must be noted that Dev Kit designs are often quite different from the final consumer console.
The images of the PS5 Dev Kit was apparently confirmed by Matthew Stott on Twitter. Stott is a gaming industry veteran currently working as a senior artist at Codemasters in the UK.
In a Tweet, since deleted, Stott responded saying: “It’s a dev kit, we have some in the office.”
The illustrations were discovered by Dutch website LetsGoDigital, who are similarly unable to tell exactly what it is.
The V-shaped indent could be construed as the Roman numeral for five though, which brings to mind the devkit for the original Xbox which was just a big ‘X’.
It should be noted that developers should have the Dev Kit models by now. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be able to have the games ready for the PS5’s launch.
