That’s almost as silly as the V-shaped thing.

The V shaped thing makes more sense, imo.

Tip of the V, is the "heat point", and the V are cooling fins, and it draws in air to pass along those fins.
Usage of heatpipes could spread it down those. It also allows for great ventilation, along those cooling fins.

Obviously the V design is because of the roman numeral for 5 = V.  Playstation 5 thus the V shape.

Theres a style & design choice around it, while still being heavily focused on cooling.
The OP picture, depicts some tiny case that looks barely bigger than a PS4 slim, how is that gonna cool a PS5?

Basically Xbox series X design is around a gigantic Cooling Fan.
Push tons of air = better cooling.

While the PS5 V design, is about surface area + more passive cooling effects by opening up alot of vents.
Tons of surface area = better cooling.

Both are clearly designed around being able to deal with more "heat" than previous designs of consoles.

This is true of course, I was joking from an esthetical perspective though.

The V-shaped thing is a DEV-KIT, why can't people understand what that implies?

A Dev-kit does NOT need to look sexy or good, it's a professional piece of hardware for people to work on. Looks are irrelevant in that context.

Yet people lose their minds on the internet, and go: "OMG if that's what the final product is going to look like, it's the end of the world..."

No lady, no sir, when is a Dev-kit ever the same as the final product? It never is, obviously. So why are people talking about a working piece of hardware as if it were the actual retail thing?

I know the V-shape is a devkit. You can relax.
