Would you believe we’re around six years from the release of PlayStation 4? Soon we all will get to play the next generation of consoles. Not to be outdone, it looks as if Sony has thrown their hat into the next-gen console race sooner than it’s competition. In fact, here’s a nice shiny image of the not one, but two PS5 Dev Kit’s posted by Alcoholikaust on Twitter.

If you’ve been following the rumors and images surrounding this thing, this falls in line with what we’ve already seen, for better or worse.
Is it me or does anyone else think it looks like some sort of futuristic engine? The Verge‘s Tom Warren went on Twitter and verified that the above photo is indeed real. The look of them is apparently a design feature which is better explained by Tom Warren.
“The reason it’s large and v-shaped is to make them more easily stackable for devs who are running multiple stress tests. The cooling is optimized to push air out of the sides and center”.
Spec-wise, I should note that Wired reported that during a demo of the PS5’s loading speed it was observed that fifteen second load times have been reduced to one second. While not the final design for the PS5 (it is just a dev kit, after all), it’s great to see a gaming company so far ahead in production on the next-generation console. I mean, to be honest, it doesn’t appear that Sony has slowed down on the PS4 video game front. Hideo Kojima’s long-awaited Death Stranding finally released last month in November, and there are huge hits like Final Fantasy VII Remake on the way. Personally, I can’t wait until the next-gen GTA. Any games you’d like to see after the PS5’s release in December 2020?
