With the PlayStation 5 just a year away at this point we should hopefully start to see a bit more information on it, including the all-important final release date and price. It wouldn’t hurt to see some videos and screenshots of the upcoming games either.
For now, we just have to take each bit of drip-fed information as it comes, normally in the form of leaks.
There have been loads of these so far, we’ve had the specs, rumored pricing, the DualShock 5 and even a potential look at the console itself. A look that many fans found garish and did not like at all.
The look of the console certainly shocked fans, however, it wasn’t long before people began speculating that the patents were actually for the devkits and not the final PlayStation 5 that will reach our homes next year.
This speculation was backed up by a senior artist at Codemasters who tweeted that the designs were indeed for the devkits. That tweet was promptly deleted with Matt Stone getting a bit of a talking to no doubt.
Today, thanks to Twitter user @Alcoholikaust, fans have been given the best look at the PlayStation 5 devkit to date.
Take a look:
As you can see, the image shows not one, but two units each hooked up to a Dual Shock controller and in an office environment that I’d happily believe could be used to develop games.
If these were a hoax someone would have taken way too much time and effort into creating the units and I am more than confident they are real.
I’m not sure how Sony will feel when they see this photograph though. I don’t imagine they will be too happy that someone has released pictures of actual PlayStation 5 devkits into the wild.
It’s a shame they haven’t shown us what they are working on.
Hopefully, Sony themselves will show us what the actual retail version of the PlayStation 5 will look like sooner rather than later as I’m sure it will be completely different from these.
Let us know your thoughts on the PlayStation 5 in the comments. Are you getting one or will you plump for the next Xbox instead? Either way, roll on the holidays 2020.
