A YouTube user called infiltrado has uploaded a video enticingly called “PlayStation 5 Development Kit/Main Menu/PlayStation 5 Kit de Desarrollo”. The clip starts with the camera briefly showing what looks like a PS5 devkit and a very odd-looking controller. The rest of the video (see below) focuses on the user interface and main menu, which includes a closer look at a somewhat remarkable (and suspicious) list of very interesting games.
Of course, there are plenty of clues on show that this is not the real deal, even if the clip was posted before April Fools’ Day. For instance, the main menu shows unreleased games such as The Last of Us Part II (scheduled for release May 29) and Ghost of Tsushima (expected release June 26). But it could be argued that these are just promo images or demos to show off the PS5 user interface and really what’s important here is how fast and smooth everything looks thanks to the presence of a real PlayStation 5 devkit…
Unfortunately, the clever creator of this video of a PlayStation 5 devkit in action overlooked a small but crucial detail right from the beginning that some eagle-eyed viewers have already started pointing out. If the PS5 development kit on show is a real pre-market next-generation console, then why does it have a very faint but still visible “LetsGoDigital” logo on the top right side of the front? Has the media site, which is highly regarded for its excellent concept renders, actually made a deal with Sony to help design the PS5? Of course it's a fake, but it’s a valiant effort by infiltrado that will fool many. PlayStation fans will have to wait a while longer yet before they get a glimpse at the real thing in action.
