Import records have revealed that Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe has shipped a number of mysterious ‘console prototypes’ to Norfolk, Virginia in North America,
Previously, the company shipped multiple development kits from various parts of the globe to Oakland, California, which are presumably modified PS5 consoles that software creators can utilise.
However, recent records also show they have shipped 1,500lbs worth of prototype units from its London HQ to Virginia. The ledger for the shipments mentions HS Code #981700, which is usually associated with video game products. There are a number of Sony service centres located in Virginia, although other than that there doesn’t seem to be anything significant in the area.
There’s no indication of what these prototype console could be, but there’s a chance it might be PSVR 2 development kits or perhaps even an early version of an as-yet unannounced PS5 Pro console.
Sony hasn’t announced any plans for a PS5 Pro or PS5 Slim console, but given the company’s history, a hardware revision for its flagship system isn’t out of the question.
