PlayStation 5 development kits appear in the wild once again

Remember that this isn't Sony's final PS5 design

PlayStation 5 development kits appear in the wild once again

PlayStation 5 development kits appear in the wild once again

More images of Sony's PlayStation 5 dev kits have appeared online, revealing that some developers have received multiple units. These units are consistent with previously leaked images of Sony's next-generation development platform

Before moving on, we will note that Development kits are never identical to final, retail, consoles. These systems are designed for PlayStation 5 game development, not for use as a home console. For reference, both Sony's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 development kits are shown in the background of the image below. Both development kits look nothing like Sony's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro consoles. 

The image below, which comes via @Alcoholokaust on Twitter, is too blurry to confirm what's running on both consoles, or which developer has access to two PlayStation 5 dev kits. 

The signature V-shape of Sony's next-generation development kits is designed to enable console stacking, which allows developers to stress test several consoles concurrently without any airflow restrictions. At this time it is unknown whether or not Sony's PlayStation 5 dev kits use final silicon for Sony's next-generation console, or if they use PC hardware with Sony's targetted specifications or early PlayStation 5 silicon with unfinalised clock speeds. 

Sony's PlayStation 5 console is due to release in the Holiday 2020 time period, with an early-mid-November release being likely.
