In the wake of the PS5’s reveal, fans have estimated that the console is bigger than previous PlayStations and the Xbox Series X.
After months and months of rumours and hearsay, Sony finally unveiled its PlayStation 5 console last night.
Despite being a pretty brief overlook at the console’s design, it didn’t take long for fans to try and figure out its size. And, surprisingly enough, it looks to be even bigger than the Xbox Series X, which itself has been compared to a fridge in the past.
Sony has yet to release any official measurements, but numerous fans reached this conclusion by comparing the PlayStation 5’s disc drive to the Xbox Series X’s, assuming both are the same size.
As you can see below, there is a very significant difference in height between the two.
Others reached the same conclusion by using the size of the DualSense controller, showing that it’s bigger than the PS4 Pro.
This also extends to every previous PlayStation console, including the PlayStation 3, which was criticised by some at the time of its release for being too big.
This has got some fans worried about if it will fit or not underneath their TVs, especially if they intend on buying both next gen consoles.
The average TV unit is roughly a metre long and, if these estimates are correct, the PlayStation 5 is roughly 35 to 36 cm, so there should actually be plenty of room to have them both side by side.
There are still concerns about whether the PlayStation 5 can be laid horizontally though. Sony does have photos of it that way, but some who already don’t like the design find it even less appealing that way.
As always, we won’t know for sure until Sony provides measurements, but some gamers are already implying they won’t buy their next console based on its games or power, but on what it looks like.
The PlayStation 5 is scheduled to launch later this year.
