PS4 Neo Dev Kit Containing 800GB of Data Bought at Auction

4.8
United Front Games, the devs of the classic Sleeping Dogs game officially shut down last month. The developers had most of their equipment up for sale at an auction from which a user managed to buy the PS4 Dev Kit, with over 800 Gigabytes of data on it.

Sleeping Dogs was a massive success when launched back in 2012. Many people called it the GTA V from Asia. Many gamers and critics from all over the world highly recommended it. The fighting style, the graphics, and the story was beautifully executed. But sadly, we won’t be getting a sequel to Sleeping Dogs.

According to the new owner of the PS4 Dev Kit, United Front Games were probably working on some type of project. After the new owner posted this on Reddit, many users pointed out that the PS4 Dev Kit is in fact encrypted which would make it pretty hard to extract the data from it. Assembler Games has stepped in and is willing to help extract the valuable data from the Dev Kit PlayStation 4. The data hasn’t been extracted yet.

Unit Name: PS4 DUH-D7000AA Development kit

Eternity It's always interesting to see what the DevKit versions look like. It makes me wonder if this is simply a "let's just throw it together" box, or if it's style was actually considered for release at one point


most likely not style on this, well a little at least. But the reason for this being so hulkish is because it has more to it than a consumer-grade model. Developer Kit. Better be pretty damn good to run those types of programs.

FibreOp Interesting, I prefer the look of the slick PS4 than the Dev kit look. The slick PS4 look is more this century compared to this ugly looking thing


Dude, it's a dev kit... it's not made to look pretty.

Seems like this could lead to some nice homebrew

Bourne A dev kit is cool to modders. A lot of jailbroken PS3's are put into developer mode which in some way acts like a dev kit. So its cool its a gem.


Exactly this.This machine is the bomb!
