Last August, we reported on a filing made by Sony with detailed sketched of the PS5 dev kit (development kit). While many believed that they might have been faked, this was later confirmed to be authentic by a developer who stated their studio had these kits. Now it seems that the first photo of the devkit may have surfaced.
In an image uploaded by PlayStation VR News, we get our first real look at the PS5 dev kit, which is identical to the earlier filings by Sony.

Now, do keep in mind if this is real, it is a dev kit and not a representation of the final system. that consumers will get to buy at retail. Often these dev kits are thrown together in large bulky shells as they aren’t intended for commercial sale. As with all leaks, take this with a grain of salt, as it could easily be faked.
We will be sure to keep you all posted till then on any new developments, though we don’t expect to see anything official until next year. For now, enjoy what little leaks we can get, and more are sure to come.
