Someone has secured themselves a rare console gem, grabbing an early PS4 Neo prototype dev kit console - which is now released commercially as Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, from United Front, which recently shut its doors in October.
United Front held an auction over the weekend, selling server hardware, office equipment, lamps, TV sets - and yeah, a PS4 Pro development kit. Reddit user kaneda2004 secured the PS4 Neo dev kit, but he found that it had 800GB of data on the HDD, but it was encrypted behind an expired DevKit license.
The 800GB of data can't be accessed, as the files are encrypted after the license expires (as they need to be renewed every 90 days, for reasons just like this). The PS4 Neo dev kit owner has reached out to members of Assembler Games, who will grab the console and try to extract the files from the HDD to see what was hidden.
