New PlayStation 5 & DualShock Controller Design Leak Just Surfaced Online
In the summer, an image of an “unknown electronic device” created by Sony’s technical director, Yushiro Ootori, leaked online and teased a V-shaped PlayStation 5 console. Now, The Verge reporter Tom Warren just shared a picture of the devkit on Twitter and it seems confirm the rumors.
Warren continued to explain that the shape and generous size are designed to make the device easy to stack, a feature that will appeal to developers running multiple stress tests. What’s more, the large side-vents apparently act as a cooling tool, optimized to push air out and prevent overheating. The shots also give a first glimpse at what looks to be the rumored DualShock 5 Controller.
See how the first images compare to the leaked designs below.
yes, this is the PlayStation 5 devkit. 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 https://t.co/pc3wJw2A6v
