PS5 Dev Kit Design Receives Some Intriguing 3D Renders
A few days ago, it came to light that Sony Interactive Entertainment had patented an electronic device that, for all intents and purposes, seemed similar to a PlayStation dev kit, sparking some questions as to whether or not we were actually getting our first look at an early version of the PlayStation 5. Despite no actual confirmation from Sony on the matter, an industrious company has taken it upon themselves to pull the information and basic images from the patent and create 3D renders out of it, while at the same time suggesting that the original patent was indeed for the PS5.
Company LetsGoDigital did the hard work involved in creating the 3D renders out of the patents, churning out what manages to look a bit like a higher-end router. Shown below, an interesting thing to note is that the device looks decidedly not like a typical PlayStation console, and the U-shaped heatsink at the top seems counter-intuitive given the fact that many development studios tend to stack systems on top of each other. Check ’em out below:
As mentioned, these are simple mock-ups of the original designs shown in the patent, and as such this could honestly be anything. Still, it is certainly an interesting thing to look at, and given Sony’s noted absence from E3, we’ll take just about any kind of information nowadays if it pertains to the PlayStation 5.
So, thoughts on the 3D renders? What do you hope the PS5 will look like? Let us know in the comments section below, and as always, stay tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers for all the latest gaming and entertainment news! Don’t forget to follow DFTG on Twitter for our 24/7 news feed!
