A PS5 development kit almost landed in the hands of a lucky purchaser on eBay, after a listing for one was spotted online, though it seems Sony acted quickly and had the listing struck down just hours after it went up.
The listing was spotted by Twitter user Zuby_Tech, who was able to capture four screenshots taken from the listing before it was delisted. The photos clearly mark it as a PS5 development kit with Sony and PlayStation labelling all around it, and two matching black Dualsense controllers would have come with the kit, according to the photos.

Development kits being on sale isn’t exactly anything new, its possible to find development kits for much older consoles nowadays on websites like eBay, but I doubt Sony appreciates a PS5 development kit going to anyone who they haven’t explicitly sent one too, considering that a PS5 development kit in the wrong hands could lead to the PS5 software being hacked or jailbroken quite easily.
