Update: Senior Editor at The Verge Tom Warren confirms that the design is for cooling when there’s a stress test and stacked.
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— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) November 30, 2019
A developer has sent an image to Twitter user Alcoholikaust showcasing 2 PlayStation 5 dev kits.
The design of the development kit has already been confirmed to be this, so it was just a matter of time before we see a leak of the kit itself like we have with PS4.

PS4 and PS4 Pro development kits are in the background, so it could very well be legit and not just some 3D rendered object they threw on the table. Guess whoever sent this really doesn’t care. Anyways, it’s interesting that it has full USB ports and not Type-C like the DualShock 5 will be.
Controllers appear to be DualShock 4s, since it’s not like the patent that recently went live. Not saying that patents are final, but this is a big enough change from the DualShock 4 to be seen as an evolution. The controller pictured doesn’t have a USB Type-C connection at the end which is an indication in why I’m also saying this.
Please note, the console itself and DualShock 5 will likely look a lot, and I mean a LOT different then the development products we have above.
