    Today a video surfaced from Computer Bild TV via YouTube of a Sony PlayStation 4 / PS4 Debug Test Kit DUH-T1000AA unboxing which can be seen below.

    Those interested can check out the PlayStation 4 controller, PS4 cables, and ports that come with the next-generation video gaming console up close.

    Feel free to comment on the video below and enjoy! Also be sure to keep on eye on www.PS4News.com which will be launching around the time the PlayStation 4 is officially released in North America on November 15, 2013.

    To quote: "Are you interested to see the PlayStation 4 up close and watch someone unbox it? Well, Computer Bild TV uploaded a video today where they unbox the console and show the accessories that come with it. You can watch the video with English subtitles through the closed captioning settings.

    The PlayStation package they received came with one controller, an HDMI cable, and a headset. The console itself has USB, optical, HDMI, and network ports.

    The PS4 will be released on November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe, Australia, and Brazil. The console is priced at $399 excluding the camera and a game."

    Finally, from eussNL: For anyone asking the file is useless for retail consoles, only installable on DUT-TAHxxxK-yy series models (DUT-TAHxxxK-yy known model numbers in license regions, e.g.: DUT-TAH00JK-D0 SCEJ)

    It is not a firmware for a PS4 Debug / DEX in fact the whole DEX naming is unrelated to anything in the PS4 scene, it is not a Debug firmware either. The only thing correct is that it is a PS4 firmware.

    It is a TestKits Generation 2 firmware for DUT-TAHxxxK-yy series like the DUT-TAH00JK-D0 as the name clearly states. The firmware will not install on a DUH-T1000AA. It is useless if you do not have a GEN2 TestKit e.g. DUT-TAH00JK-D0 and extracting+decrypting is not possible atm.
