You can check out the PlayStation 4 dev kit in the image below and looking at it, it is apparent that why console dev kits are not a practical choice for a home console.

Speaking of the PlayStation 4, PS4 Firmware 5.05 has been cracked and has already been implemented for all PS4 models including the PS4 Pro.
This PS4 Firmware 5.05 crack requires users to modify the DNS to use the browser in order to load Henkaku.
However, every time the user turns off the console will have to load the Henkaku again as turning the console off will remove all modifications.
Furthermore, this PS4 Firmware 5.05 crack is not limited to specific PS4 models and can be used on the base PS4, PS4 slim and even PS4 Pro but, the last one has to have the original CD-ROM drive.
