Yesterday, a Sony patent for what appears to be a new game console turned up online. Many presumed this to be a PlayStation 5 devkit, and today a game developer seemingly confirmed this to be true on Twitter.
Following a ResetEra thread which uncovered a European Sony patent for some kind of hardware device, there was speculation online that this was the design for the PlayStation 5. Or at the very least the PS5 devkit.
The image on the patent was highly unusual as it eschewed industrial design standards in favor of bulk. There’s also the matter of the “V” design carved into the hardware. “V” is the roman numeral for five, which further fueled the speculation that this console was related to the PS5.
