Sony PlayStation 4 Development Unit / PS4 Dev Kit is Unveiled


Sponsored Links
70w ago - Recently we reported on a Sony DUH-D1000AA PS4 Dev Kit FCC filing, and now Gizmodo (linked above) has made available a picture of what a PlayStation 4 development unit looks like.

Below are the details, to quote: "The cat may already be out of the bag, but for many months we didn't know what the PS4 looked like.

Now, we know what the retail version will look, but what about the developer box Sony hid during the big reveal and on Jimmy Fallon? Well, here's an exclusive image we've acquired of some developer boxes that were used at E3.

Like any PC you'd build yourself, the guts are what actually matter and in the case of game consoles, the developer units typically just hide final console design. They're never really that attractive, which is the exact opposite of what we'll be seeing this holiday season."

Obviously there may be a small fee (maybe if none if its like PS Mobile) for a license file.

Following up on Sony's PS4 Dev Kit FCC filing, today the Retail PlayStation 4 counterpart has also passed through the FCC with details below.

From Engadget (linked above), to quote: "Sony's PS4 dev kit passed by the FCC roughly a week ago, and now its consumer-oriented counterpart has passed through Uncle Sam's offices.

Not only do the federal documents show the consoles' polished exterior, but they once again note a "max clock frequency" of 2.75GHz, teasing just what kind of horsepower sits inside the black parallelogram.

Though there isn't much more to note in the agency's files, a duo of system labels marked with "Made in China" and "Made in Japan" hint that Hirai and Co. will be manufacturing the hardware in both those territories.

Mark Cerny's wunderconsole won't be hitting store shelves until later this year, but it already has the appropriate paperwork to make the trip stateside."

Finally, according to IGN the system will only consume enough power to generate a temperature between 5 degrees Celsius and 35 degrees Celsius. In comparison to the PS3, this is much less. The PS3 runs between 35-45, and it will yellow light if it surpasses 60 degrees.

The PS4 will also only weight in at 2.5 kilograms, which is half of what the original FAT PS3 did. The max clock frequency of the processor has been revealed to be 2.75Ghz.
