PlayStation 5 icon 'leaks' on official site - could the final console look similar to the dev kit?

A post has appeared on reddit that includes a photo of the official Sony PlayStation Japan website with an icon for the PlayStation 5 that looks similar to the design of the dev kit that has previously leaked.

There are a huge number of caveats and questions over this supposed leak, but it could hint that the final console inherits some of the unique points in the dev kit design.

There are a number of ways such an image could be faked - obviously Photoshop could have been involved, but also manipulation of the website markup within a web browser to add another image is also totally feasible. So while this looks kind of convincing there are questions over the actual reliability of the image itself.

If the image is to believed the console will feature the same 'v' shape that made the PlayStation 5 dev kit so distinctive. We're expecting Sony to eventually take the covers off the PlayStation 5 in the next month or two so we don't have long to wait to see exactly what the console will look like.
